I have Kerio installed in Red Hat enterprise linux, which works well for the P.C. clients however I am not receiving linux generated emails (e.g. cron job output or email generated by biabam or mail).

Is there a way to have linux use kerio as a email server in the same way as sendmail or postfix works?

Im running postfix next to kerio. Configure the kerio SNMTP service so is doesn't listen on Edit postfix main.cf and set inet_interfaces = localhost so postfix only listens to

I found this link :


Which tells you to create a link to /opt/kerio/mailserver/sendmail replacing the /usr/sbin/sendmail file with the kerio version, I also had to add, port 25 to the SMTP service.

This meant that I can send email using biabam and mail but the crontab emails (stdout) are not appearing anywhere.

You may need to set PATH in your crontab so that it knows where to find sendmail. –  Aaron Copley Sep 14 '11 at 20:43

Perhaps something like nullmailer can help.

I think I use it on my Kerio box.
