Cannot open message file D:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store/mail/kerio-domain.com/johndoe/Calendar/#msgs/00000019.eml. The file has been probably removed.

The users can be facing file corruption issues, emails could be getting stuck in their Outbox, or the users might not be able to use their email.
The Kerio Connect related files could become corrupted or damaged due to unexpected service crashes or server outages. The internal files might also be occupied by another application or built-in OS service, which can lead to indexing issues.
Since version 7.3.0, Kerio Connect repairs corrupted files by automatically re-indexing them. For the older versions or for the cases where the automatic re-indexing fails, you can manually re-index the corrupted files using the below steps.

- Start Kerio Connect (Windows, macOS/Linux).
Repeat the above steps for any other user/s that are seeing the errors when accessing their Kerio Connect mailbox.
The user/s who was/were seeing the error should now login to Kerio Connect and access the folder/s for which they were seeing the error. Kerio Connect will start rebuilding the index file after the user accesses the folder/s for the first time. If it is a large folder/s, there might be a slight delay in the re-building process. After this, the user will no longer see the error that they were seeing and will be able to access their mailbox normally.
None of the previously seen error/s should be seen in the error logs in Kerio Connect web administration.
