Ever have a rough time setting up your email? What we love most about the new Kerio Connect 7.3 (used for MacLab hosting) is how easy it is to set up accounts in Apple Mail and iCal as well as the iPhone and iPad.
Here’s how it works. To set up Mail, iCal, and Address Book simultaneously, you download one simple installer, run it and you’re good to go in under 5 minutes. On your iOS device, you login, download a profile and you’re done. You get synchronized email, schedules and contacts along with full group scheduling in moments.
Apple released Lion update 10.7.3, then quickly pulled the updater because of reported problems with applications crashing. The combo updater doesn’t seem to exhibit the issue and is still available for download.
The update includes additional language support, addresses issues when using smart cards to log in, resolves issues authenticating with directory services, and addresses compatibility issues with Windows file sharing. It also addresses a WiFi connection issue when waking from sleep. For a complete list of changes see this article.

Now that Apple requires an Apple ID to purchase OS X 10.7 Lion as well as apps for iOS devices, there’s really no getting away from the process. For business owners with staff members this will get confusing as employees purchase productivity apps and install them on personal devices.
Here’s a procedure that will keep apps with the business, organized and licensed properly.
