Kerio mail redirect

We have a client using kerio mail server 7 for their email. For some reason, unbeknownst to me, when they go to their company webpage from within the network they get redirected to the kerio mail server login page. Any thoughts?

By default, the Kerio listens on port 80, just like any other web server.  If the company web page and the Kerio server are on the same hardware, you need to change the port one or the other is listening to.  If they are are on separate hardware, you need to check the network's DNS settings -- it appears the company web site resolves to the Kerio server's IP address.

I've thought of that, but this just recently started happening. All i get from Kerio support is "I'ts your DNS!!!" Ill check into your solution though.


Here's some more information.   My client has an HP ML310 G5 running a 32-bit version of 2008 server standard (non-R2).  It is a single DC of and holds the organizations AD environment.  The DNS domain name (MS internally) is the same as the EXTERNAL domain name the client uses for it's email and  website.   The server runs Kerio mail 7, and there are no issues with email, inbound or outbound.  This server is the primary DNS for the internal windows clients.  Everything works fine on the inside LAN.  I have a static DNS entry for the website in the AD DNS  (a simple www "A" record) that points to the IP of the company website.   An NS lookup at the server console OR a client resolves to the correct EXTERNAL IP for the website.

When we try to go to the corporate website from INSIDE the LAN, we get redirected to the Kerio mail webmail login on the local server.  This didnt used to happen.  Something's changed, we cant figure out what.
