What is Kopano Cloud?

Kopano Cloud is a software stack that aims to deliver a similar groupware experience and functionality (email, calendar, contacts and tasks) as Microsoft Exchange does.

The key feature is first class support for Microsoft Outlook (from 2016 on, incl. MS 365, on Windows operating systems).

Build with multi tenancy and multi domain environments in mind, Kopano Cloud scales very well, even with 10th of thousands of users per server node – making it the ideal solution for even the most demanding needs.

Which services and protocols are provided / supported by Kopano Cloud?


  • Kopano WebApp – the integrated web client to access user data
  • Management UI – an administration interface to manage domains and users


  • MAPI over HTTP – connects and synchronizes Microsoft Outlook (on Windows operating systems) seamlessly without the need for any additional add-ons or plug-ins

  • ActiveSync – connects and synchronizes clients on mobile devices, e.g. Apple Mail App (iOS) and Google Gmail App (Android)

  • IMAP(S) – connects and synchronizes email clients, e.g. Mozilla Thunderbird

  • POP3(S) – lets clients retrieved email one-way without synchronization, e.g. Mozilla Thunderbird

  • SMTP(S) – used to submit emails from various clients to the server

Additional services

  • Autodiscover – an information service, which helps to configure clients automatically

  • Microsoft Graph-like API – enables Kopano Cloud to be hooked into your own management frontends
