How To Fix the Problem with Kerio Auto Fill

The auto fill feature for email addresses is no longer attached to the public folder contacts list, so it isn’t filling in Salem school employee address automatically. Here’s what you need to do to fix it.

  1. Log into Kerio Webmail.
  2. Click the Settings button.
  3. Click Settings from the drop down list.
  4. Click the Mail Composing tab.
  5. Click the Choose Folders tab beside “Search for contacts in selected folders.”
  6. Scroll all the way to the button of the list that pops up.  Look for the folder that says “Public folders.”
  7. If you see a + beside Public folders, click on the + to open this folder.
  8. Underneath Public folders, you’ll see a Contacts folder.
  9. Click the check box beside Contacts to check it.
  10. Click OK and OK again.

Kerio Calendar

Did you know that there is a calendar for your school right in your email account?  Here’s how to find it:

  1. Log into Kerio webmail
  2. In the folders pane to the left, scroll down until you see Public Folders
  3. If there is a + beside the folder, click on it. It will change to a – and open the folder.
  4. You should be able to see different calendars. There should be one for your school and one for the division.

I try and keep it up-to-date as soon as the princpals send out the Monday News.  If you know of something that needs to be added, please let me know, and I will be glad to do it!
