3.4. Automatic Configuration (IMAP/CalDAV/CardDAV)

iOS devices, including iPads and iPhones offer a variety of options for synchronizing Email, Contacts, Calendars, Notes, and Reminders with Central IT Mail Servers. The typical configuration is performed automatically through the Kerio Connect Client interface, which installs a profile containing the SSL Certificate, IMAP, CardDAV, and CalDAV accounts.

(1) You will need to go to WebMail on your iPhone by going to http://mymail.cit-services.co.uk and click on the link 'Set up my Phone'

(2) From there you have a few options, select the option 'Mail, Contacts, Calendars'

(3) You will then get a screen that will give you the option to configure your iPhone for an IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV account. You will need to click 'Continue' to setup your IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV accounts.

(4) You will then get an option to have a secure connection or unsecured connection configured on your iPhone. We would suggest that the secured connection is the better option to take as it will add a level of security to your data that is being transmitted wirelessly.

(5) You will be prompted for your username and password which you must enter. Your username is your email address.

(6) Your iPhone is now ready to have the profile installed. Click on the 'Install' button and this will start to configure the IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV accounts on the phone.

(7) You may get a warning about the authenticity of the profile but this is nothing to worry about and you will just need to click 'Install Now'.

(8) If you are using an SSL cert that the iPhone does not agree with, such as a self signed certificate you just select the option 'Continue'.

(9) You will then get the screen below to show the profile finishing installing.

(10) Then the profile is completed and you will click 'Done'. Then your IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV accounts will be ready to use on your iPhone.

To remove a profile that has been setup with the auto configuration you will need to go to Settings->General->Profiles and remove the Kerio profile.

Please Note: If you have a Business Standard Mailbox then you might be prompted to type in the password for CALDAV and CARDDAV. You must click cancel as this service isn't included with Business Standard Mailboxes. You can remove these accounts by going to Mail, Contacts, Calendars > locate your newly created account with the subheading 'Calendars, Reminders' > slide the Account toggle to off. Click Done. Then do the same with your newly created account with the subheading 'Contacts'. Slide the Account toggle to off. Click Done.
