When trying to add email addresses into the personal Address book automatically, so-called Contacts catalog, the Kerio Connect doesn't have built-in features to accomplish this specific configuration. However, if the email was already sent, Kerio Connect stores the email address data in the AutocompleteContacts folder.

Robocopy installed (for Windows)
Crontab installed (for Linux/Mac)

ROBOCOPY.EXE "C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store\mail\<Domain>\<user>\__wm__autoCompleteContacts\#msgs" "C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store\mail\<Domain>\<user>\<autocomplete folder>\#msgs" *.eml /XO

C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\store\mail) should be replaced by
- When the user is next reindexed, the new autocomplete entries will be added to the folder created for the purpose:
- Additionally, it can be automated to run the first command on daily basis. For more information, please refer to the Microsoft Schtasks.exe docs.
For Linux/Mac, the automation can be done using the crontab tool.
Note: contact information will be missing, including names and surnames, which would later need to be added.
