Getting Started
1
GroupWise is a robust, dependable messaging and collaboration system that connects you to your
universal mailbox anytime and anywhere. This section provides an overview of the GroupWise client
to help you start using GroupWise quickly and easily.
1.1
Installing the GroupWise Client
To begin using GroupWise, you or your GroupWise administrator must install GroupWise on your
computer. Your GroupWise administrator might prompt you to install GroupWise by using ZENworks.
1 If you are not automatically prompted to install GroupWise, contact your GroupWise
administrator to find out the location of the GroupWise client Setup program, setup.exe.
2 Ensure that you are logged in as yourself on your computer.
3 Click Start > Run, browse to the file location, select setup.exe, then click OK.
4 Follow the instructions in the Setup Wizard.
5 Continue with Starting GroupWise.
1.2
Starting GroupWise
When you start GroupWise, you might be prompted to type information such as your password, the
TCP/IP address of your post office agent, and so forth. This Startup dialog box changes, depending
on the information GroupWise needs to be able to open your Mailbox, and depending on the
GroupWise mode that you log in to.
Your GroupWise administrator might restrict the GroupWise modes you can log in to.
1 Start GroupWise by double-clicking the GroupWise icon on your desktop to display the
GroupWise Main Window.
If you have not specified a password for your Mailbox and GroupWise needs no additional
information, you bypass the Startup dialog box and GroupWise opens.
To force the GroupWise Startup dialog box to display, right-click the GroupWise icon on the
desktop, click Properties, then click the Shortcut tab. In the Target field, after the GroupWise
executable, type a space, type /@u-?, then click OK.
For information about other startup options, see Appendix C, “Startup Options,” on page 289.
2 If you are prompted for a password, type the password in the Password field.
If you are having trouble accessing your account and your GroupWise system includes
GroupWise WebAccess, you can use the Can’t log in? link on the WebAccess Login page for
more information about how to get your password reset in your organization.
3 Click the mode of GroupWise you are logging in to and type additional information as necessary,
such as the path to the post office, the TCP/IP address and port of the post office agent, and the
path to your Caching or Remote mailbox.
If you do not know the required information, contact your GroupWise administrator.
4 Click OK.
Getting Started
15
For instructions to start GroupWise under specialized circumstances, see Section 16.1, “Managing
Non-Standard Login Requirements,” on page 267.
1.3
Assigning a Password to Your Mailbox
You can assign a password to your Mailbox. GroupWise passwords are case sensitive (for example,
Wednesday is not the same as WEDNESDAY). If you forget your password, you cannot access any
of your items. You must contact your GroupWise administrator to reset it.
NOTE: If your GroupWise administrator has turned on LDAP authentication, your LDAP password is
used to access your Mailbox instead of a GroupWise password, and you cannot add a password
through this method.
1 In the Main Window, click Tools > Options.
2 Double-click Security, then click the Password tab.
3 In the New password field, type the password.
4 In the Confirm new password field, type the password, click OK, then click Close.
For more information, see Section 16.2, “Managing Mailbox Passwords,” on page 268.
1.4
Using the Home Folder
The Home folder is a personalized view of your most important information. The Home folder uses
panels to display information in sections. The first time you open your Home folder, you see an
introductory page that explains how to customize your Home folder. Then you can display your
default Home folder.
The default Home folder displays your calendar for the day, your Tasklist items, and your unread
messages.
The Home View is fully customizable. You can create additional panels that display the information
you need. For more information, see Section 2.4, “Using Panels to Organize Your Home Folder,” on
page 52.
1.5
Displaying the QuickViewer
Use the QuickViewer to scan the contents of your items in a folder. The QuickViewer saves time
because you don’t need to open each item; you simply click an item or press the Down-arrow key to
read your items.
If you click a document reference, the document displays in the QuickViewer. You can display an
item’s attachment by clicking the attachment in the drop-down list on the QuickViewer tool bar. OLE
attachments, however, do not display in the QuickViewer.

line up or down.
If you size and close the QuickViewer, it is the same size when you open it again. Size it by
dragging a corner of the window, not by clicking the maximize button.
 In the Mailbox, click an item that you want to read.
or
In the Calendar, click an appointment that you want to see details for.

you want to set.
 Right-click in the QuickViewer to choose other options.
 To close the QuickViewer, click the Quickviewer icon on the toolbar.
When you read an item in the QuickViewer, the icon changes to the opened status. For example, the
closed envelope representing a mail message changes to an opened envelope.
You can specify that some folders show the QuickViewer every time you open them, or that some
folders never show the QuickViewer.
1.6
Using the Windows 7 Taskbar to Perform Key
Tasks
You can perform various tasks directly from the Windows 7 taskbar and Start menu by right-clicking
the GroupWise icon in the Windows 7 taskbar or by clicking the arrow next to GroupWise on the Start

1.7
Exploring the Folder List
The Folder List at the left of the Main Window lets you organize your GroupWise items by creating
folders to store your items in. Next to any folder (except for shared folders), the number of unread
items is shown in square brackets. Next to the Sent Items folder, the number in square brackets
shows how many items are pending to be sent from Caching mode.
The Folder List header includes the Mode Selector for changing between Online mode and Caching
mode. Some folders are available by default. Additional folders are created as you use additional
GroupWise features.

Getting Started
1.7.1
Home Folder
Your Home folder (indicated by your name) represents your GroupWise database. All folders in your
Main Window are subfolders of your Home folder. The Home folder can be organized into panels to
display your most important folders. For more information, see Section 2.4, “Using Panels to
Organize Your Home Folder,” on page 52.
1.7.2
Mailbox Folder
The Mailbox displays all the items you have received, with the exception of scheduled items
(appointments, tasks, and reminder notes) you have accepted or declined. By default, scheduled
items and tasks are moved to the Calendar when you accept them.
Your received items are stored in your Mailbox. You can quickly change what is displayed by clicking
a setting in the Display drop-down list. You can further restrict which items display in your Mailbox by
using Find. For more information, see Section 7.1, “Quickly Finding Items in a Folder,” on page 195.
You can organize your messages by moving them into folders within your Cabinet, and you can
create new folders as necessary. For more information, see Section 2.3, “Using Folders to Organize
Your Mailbox,” on page 38.
You can also organize your messages by assigning categories to them. Each category displays as a
different color in your Mailbox. You can search for categories. For more information, see “Using
Categories to Organize Items” on page 35.
1.7.3
Sent Items Folder
The Sent Items folder displays all the items you have sent. By checking the properties of your sent
items, you can determine their status (Delivered, Opened, and so on).
1.7.4
Calendar Folder
The Calendar folder shows several calendar view options. The Calendar folder also contains any
additional calendars that you have created. You can use the Folder List to choose which calendars to
display. The selected calendars are displayed in the calendar view.
For more information, see Section 4.1, “Understanding the Calendar,” on page 111.
1.7.5
Frequent Contacts Folder
The Frequent Contacts folder represents the Frequent Contacts address book. Any modification you
make in the Frequent Contacts folder is also made in the Frequent Contacts address book.
From this folder, you can view, create, and modify contacts, resources, organizations, and groups.
For more information, see Section 6.4, “Using Contacts Folders,” on page 167.
1.7.6
Tasklist Folder
Use the Tasklist folder to create a task list. You can move any items (mail messages, phone

Documents Folder
Your document references are organized in the Documents folder so you can easily locate them. The
Documents folder includes an Authored folder for documents you have written and a Default Library
folder for documents you have access to in your default library. The Documents folder can contain
only documents.
For more information, see Chapter 15, “Document Management,” on page 265.
1.7.8
Cabinet Folder
The Cabinet contains all of your personal folders. See the following topics for information about
rearranging your Cabinet folder:

1.7.9
Work in Progress Folder
The Work In Progress folder is a folder where you can save messages you have started but want to
finish later. For more information, see “Saving an Unfinished Email” on page 80.
1.7.10
Junk Mail Folder
All email items from addresses and Internet domains that are junked through Junk Mail Handling are
placed in the Junk Mail folder. This folder is not created in the folder list unless a Junk Mail option is
enabled.
If Junk Mail options are enabled, this folder cannot be deleted. However, the folder can be renamed
or moved to a different location in the folder list. If all Junk Mail options are disabled, the folder can be
deleted. The folder can also be deleted if the Junk Mail Handling feature is disabled by the
GroupWise administrator.
For more information, see “Handling Unwanted Email (Spam)” on page 106.
1.7.11
Trash Folder
All deleted mail, phone messages, appointments, tasks, documents, and reminder notes are stored in
the Trash folder. Items in the Trash can be viewed, opened, or returned to your Mailbox before the
Trash is emptied. Emptying the Trash removes items in the Trash from the system.
You can empty your entire Trash, or empty only selected items. Items in the Trash are automatically
emptied according to the number of days specified in the Cleanup tab in Environment Options, or
you can empty the Trash manually. The GroupWise administrator can specify that your Trash is
emptied automatically on a regular basis.
For more information, see Section 16.8, “Managing Trash,” on page 279.

Getting Started
1.7.12
Shared Folders
A shared folder is like any other folder in your Cabinet, except other people have access to it. You can
create shared folders or share existing personal folders in your Cabinet. You choose whom to share
the folder with, and what rights to grant each user. Users can post messages to the shared folder,
drag existing items into the folder, and create discussion threads. You can’t share system folders,
which include the Cabinet, Trash, and Work In Progress folders.
If you place a document in a shared folder, people with rights to the shared folder don’t automatically
have rights to edit the document. Before they can edit the document, you must give them Edit rights
on the Document Sharing tab.
For more information, see Section 2.3.7, “Using Shared Folders,” on page 49.
1.7.13
IMAP4 Account Folder
IMAP4 stands for Internet Message Access Protocol version 4. If you have an email account that
uses IMAP4, you can access that account through GroupWise.
If you add a folder for an IMAP4 account, a icon displays in your Folder List.
For more information, see Chapter 12, “POP3 and IMAP4 Accounts,” on page 247.
1.7.14
NNTP Newsgroup Account Folder
NNTP stands for Network News Transfer Protocol. It is a method designed to send and receive
newsgroup postings. GroupWise can connect with NNTP newsgroups and incorporate their functions
into your Mailbox.
If you subscribe to an NNTP newsgroup account, an NNTP folder is created. It displays the NNTP
folder icon in your Folder List.
For more information, see Chapter 13, “Newsgroups,” on page 255.
1.7.15
RSS Feeds Folder
When you subscribe to RSS feeds, the GroupWise Feeds folder is created. It displays the RSS folder
icon in the Folder list. A list of subscribed feeds is displayed under the GroupWise Feeds folder. You
can create subfolders under the GroupWise Feeds folder and move feeds to the subfolder. When you
click the subfolder, the message list displays a list of all the topics for all the feeds under the
subfolder.
For more information, see Chapter 14, “RSS Feeds,” on page 261.

Understanding GroupWise Item Types
Every day you communicate in a variety of ways. To accommodate these needs, GroupWise delivers
your items using a variety of item types.
1.8.1
Mail
A mail message is for basic correspondence, such as a memorandum or letter. See Section 3.1,
“Sending Email,” on page 59 and Section 3.3, “Receiving and Replying to Email,” on page 91.
Getting Started
21
1.8.2
Appointment
An appointment lets you invite people to and schedule resources for meetings or events. You can
schedule the date, time, and location for the meeting. You can use personal appointments to
schedule personal events such as a doctor’s appointment, a reminder to make a phone call at a
certain time, and so forth. Appointments display on the Calendar. For more information, see
Section 4.4, “Sending Calendar Items,” on page 123.
1.8.3
Task
A task lets you place a to-do item on your own or on another person’s Calendar after the item has
been accepted. You can schedule a due date for the task and include a priority (such as A1).
Uncompleted tasks are carried forward to the next day. For more information, see Section 5.4.1,
“Assigning a Task,” on page 151.
TIP: You can also create a Tasklist that is not associated with your Calendar. In this type of Tasklist,
any item type (mail, appointment, task, reminder note, phone message) can be used.
1.8.4
Reminder Note
A reminder note is posted on a specific date on your own or another person’s Calendar. You can use
reminder notes to remind yourself or others of deadlines, holidays, days off, and so forth. For more
information, see Section 4.4.3, “Sending Reminder Notes,” on page 129.
1.8.5
Phone Message
A phone message helps you inform someone of a phone call or visitor. You can include such
information as caller, phone number, company, urgency of the call, and so forth. You cannot answer
your phone from a phone message. For more information, see “Sending Phone Messages” on
page 83.

1.9.5
Understanding Item Lists
The most common way to display information is in an Item List. For example, the Item List for your
Mailbox is the list of messages you have received. The Item List header displays the name of the
folder whose contents are being listed. It also provides the Find field for quickly finding items in the
folder.
Item lists are organized into columns, which help you display the items in the order most useful for
you. You can drag a column to a new position in the column header. You can resize a column by
dragging the edge of the column heading. You can sort by columns and add new columns. For
complete instructions on customizing Item Lists, see Section 2.3.4, “Managing Item Lists in Folders,”
on page 43 and Section 2.3.5, “Customizing Folder Display Settings,” on page 45.
The right-click menus provide different options, depending on which column you click in. In the item
type icon column, you can select a category for the item. In the first text column (for example, Name),
you can select an item action (Reply, Forward, and so on). In the other text columns (for example,
Subject, Date, and so on), you can select a display setting (for example, Show Group Labels, View
Discussion Threads, and so on).

Using Categories to Organize Items
Categories provide you with a way to organize your items. You can assign a category to any item,
including contacts. You create and add categories and can give each category an identifying color.
The colors display in the Item List and in the Calendar.
2.2.1
Understanding Categories
When you assign a category to an item, the item is displayed in the color of the category. Categories
help you to quickly organize items in groups.
Categories help you to quickly organize items in groups. Four default categories (Follow-up, Low
priority, Personal, and Urgent) are available for you to assign to items. You can modify and delete
these categories if you choose, as well as create new categories. When you assign a category to an
item, by default, the item is displayed in the color of the category.
If you assign one of the default categories to an item you are sending, the item arrives in the
recipient’s Mailbox with that category assigned. If you assign a category that you created to an item
you are sending, the item arrives in the recipient’s Mailbox with no category assigned.
If you assign one of the default categories to an item in a shared folder, the category appears for all
users on the item in the shared folder. If you assign a category that you created to an item in a shared
folder, the category is only visible to you.
Items can show multiple category colors assigned to them by adding the Categories column to the
folder view or by displaying the folder in summary view. When you hover over the color representing
the category, the name of the category is displayed. The Category column itself can be sorted, and it
will sort the items by category according to the order you set up when you configured your categories.
When items are sorted by category, they will display in multiple places in the sorted list if the item has
multiple categories.

Using Folders to Organize Your Mailbox
Use folders to store and organize your items. For example, you can group all items related to a
particular task or subject together.
By default, the items in your mailbox are deleted and archived only when you choose to do so.
However, your GroupWise administrator can change this functionality to delete or archive your
messages after a given amount of time. To ensure that your items are not deleted, you can archive
them manually. For information on how to archive GroupWise items, see Section 16.3, “Archiving
Email,” on page 271.

2.3.1
Understanding Folder Lists
All folders are subfolders of your Home folder. Click the arrow to expand and collapse folders in a
Folder List. You can choose to display any of three different kinds of Folder Lists:
 “Full Folder List” on page 39
 “Simple Folder List” on page 39
 “Favorites Folder List” on page 40
Full Folder List
The Full Folder List displays all the folders that you have.
Next to any folder (except for shared folders), the number of unread items is shown in square
brackets. Next to the Sent Items folder, the number in square brackets shows how many items are
pending to be sent from Caching or Remote mode.
You can organize items in your folders by moving or linking them. When you move an item into a
folder, it is taken from one location and placed in another. When you link an item to a folder, the item
still exists in its original folder and it also appears in the new folder. When you change a linked item, it
is also changed in the other folders. If an item is linked to multiple folders and you delete the original
item, the copies in your other folders remain.
You can define a different set of properties for each folder in your Mailbox. For example, you can sort
the items in one folder by date, and sort the items in another folder by company.
Simple Folder List
The Simple Folder List is context-sensitive. It displays the folders that are relative to the folder you
are currently in. The following are context-sensitive Simple Folder Lists:
 Calendar: Displays a list of all calendars. From here you can select to display the contents of a
calendar in the main calendar. In addition, you can change the color of a calendar.
 Contacts: Displays a list of all personal address books. By default, the main Contacts folder is
the Frequent Contacts address book.
 Documents: Displays a list of your document libraries. By default, the main Documents folder is
your default document library.
 NNTP: Displays a list of subscribed groups within the newsgroup.
 GroupWise Feeds: Displays a list of the RSS feeds you have subscribed to.
 Favorites: Displayed whenever you are not in the Calendar folder, Contacts folder, Documents
folder, or any NNTP folders or RSS feeds. The Favorites Simple Folder List allows you to copy
folders into the folder list for quicker access.
Getting Organized
39
Favorites Folder List
The Favorites Folder List allows you to add your most commonly used folders to the Simple Folder
List for quick access. This is helpful when you drag and drop items to your folder list. Folders in this
list are displayed in the order that they are most commonly accessed.
When you display the Favorites Folder List, the most recently used folders are also displayed in a
separate list, in the Recently Used Folders section. Up to 15 folders that you access most frequently
are displayed at the top of this section. If you stop accessing a folder that is in this list, it eventually is
removed from the list. Folders that are displayed in the Favorites Folder List are not displayed in the
Recently Used Folders section.

Understanding Find Results Folders
A Find Results folder is a folder that displays the results of a query. When the folder is opened,
GroupWise examines the search criteria defined for the folder, searches for everything specified, then
displays everything it finds in the Item List. You can act on items in a Find Results folder the same
way you act on items in any folder, such as opening, forwarding, printing, copying, moving, or deleting
them. The original item remains stored in the folder where the search found it and is also acted on.
This means that if you move or delete an item from a Find Results folder, the item is deleted from the
Item List, and from the original location.
You can see the folder where each item originated if you open a Find Results folder and look at the
columns of information displayed in the Item List. The Folder column lists where each item is actually
stored.
You can create your own Find Results folders and define the search criteria you want, such as all
items from a particular address or all items with a certain word in the Subject line. Or you might create
a Find Results folder that displays all unread items.

Understanding Shared Folders
A shared folder is like any other folder in your Cabinet, except other people have access to it and it
also appears in their Cabinets. You can create shared folders or share existing personal folders in
your Cabinet. You choose whom to share the folder with, and what rights to grant each user. Then,
users can post messages to the shared folder, drag existing items into the folder, and create
discussion threads.
When you share a folder, all subfolders are automatically shared by default. The maximum amount of
subfolders that can included in a single shared folder is 400.
You cannot share system folders, which includes the Mailbox, Calendar, Documents, Sent Items,
Tasklist, Contacts, Cabinet, Work In Progress, Junk Mail, and Trash folders.
If you place a document in a shared folder, people with rights to the shared folder don’t automatically
have rights to edit the document. Before they can edit the document, you must give them Edit rights
on the Document Sharing tab.
You can share personal folders with other users. Recipients of the shared folder receive a notification
explaining that you have shared the folder with them. They can then accept the folder or decline the
folder.
In Remote and Caching modes, changes in shared folders are updated whenever you connect to the
master GroupWise system.

sharing to also be shared. Users have the same access rights to subfolders as they do in the
parent folder.
9 Click OK.
If you want the folder to have a specific function, you can create a new display setting. For example, if

2.4.1
Understanding Panels
A panel is a customized view of information in GroupWise. For example, the default Home view has
an Unread Messages panel that displays a list of items you have not read. The Tasklist panel is
another default panel on the Home view. The Tasklist panel displays items that are in your Tasklist
folder.
A panel can be created to display a variety of information, from unread items to a summary calendar.
A predefined list of panels has been created, but you can also create your own custom panels.
2.4.2
Resizing a Panel
You might want to resize the height of a panel to display more or less information. To change the
height of a panel, move your mouse cursor to the top of the line until the resize icon displays, then
drag the mouse cursor up or down to resize the panel.
TIP: To have one panel ignore column boundaries and span across all columns, click the panel dropdown arrow, then click Span All Columns.

2.5.1
Changing GroupWise Modes
GroupWise provides four different ways to run the GroupWise client: Online mode, Caching mode,
Remote mode, and Remote (Offline) mode.
 “Online Mode” on page 54
 “Caching Mode” on page 55
 “Remote Mode” on page 55
 “Changing Modes” on page 55
You might be able to run GroupWise in any of the four modes, or your GroupWise administrator might
require that you use only a certain mode.
Most GroupWise features are available in all four GroupWise modes, with some exceptions.
Subscribing to other users’ notifications is not available in Caching mode. Subscribing to other users’
notifications and Proxy are not available in Remote mode. Any feature that requires a connection,
such as to the GroupWise system or to an IMAP4 account, is not available in Remote (Offline) mode.
Online Mode
When you use Online mode, you are connected to your post office on the network. Your mailbox
displays the messages and information stored in your network mailbox (also called your Online
Mailbox). Online mode is connected to your network mailbox continuously. In Online mode, if your
Post Office Agent shuts down or you lose your network connection, you temporarily lose your
connection to your mailbox.
You should use this mode if you do not have a lot of network traffic, or if you use several different
workstations and do not want to download a local mailbox to each one.
54
Getting Organized
Caching Mode
Caching mode stores a copy of your network mailbox, including your messages and other
information, on your local drive. This allows you to use GroupWise whether or not your network or
Post Office Agent is available. Because you are not connected to the network all the time, this mode
cuts down on network traffic and has the best performance. A connection is automatically made to
retrieve and send new messages. All updates are performed in the background, so your work is not
interrupted.
You should use this mode if you have enough disk space on your local drive to store your mailbox.
Several users can set up their Caching Mailboxes on a single shared computer.
If you run Caching Mode and Remote Mode on the same computer, the same local mailbox (also
called the Caching Mailbox or Remote Mailbox) can be used to minimize disk space usage.
If disk space is limited, you can restrict the items that are downloaded to your local mailbox. You can
specify to get the subject line only or specify a size limit.
For more information, see Section 11.1, “Using Caching Mode,” on page 229.
Remote Mode
Remote mode is familiar to GroupWise users on the road. Similar to Caching mode, a copy of your
network mailbox, or the portion of the mailbox you specify, is stored on your local drive. You can
retrieve and send messages on a periodic basis with the type of connection you specify (modem,
network, or TCP/IP). If you do not want a complete copy of your network mailbox, you can restrict
what is retrieved, such as only new messages or only message subject lines.
For more information, see Section 11.2, “Using Remote Mode,” on page 234.
Changing Modes
GroupWise starts in Online mode by default. After you have set up a Caching Mailbox, it is easy to
change between modes as needed.
1 Click the Mode Selector icon in the Folder List header.
2 Select the desired mode.
Restart GroupWise to change modes.
2.5.2
Changing Your Display Name
You can change the name that is displayed in items that you send from GroupWise. You can only
change your display name if the Accounts menu is displayed. The Accounts menu is displayed if you
are in Caching mode or if your administrator allows POP and IMAP or NNTP on your GroupWise
system.
1 Click Account > Account Options.
2 Click the Mail tab, then click General Options.
3 Type your display name in the Display Name field.
4 Click OK, then click Close.

2.5.3
Changing Your Time Zone
GroupWise gets its time zone setting from the operating system where GroupWise is running. If you
want to change your GroupWise time zone, you must change the time zone of your operating system.
1 Right-click the clock in your Windows notification area.
2 Select Adjust date/time.
3 On the Date and Time tab, click Change time zone, then select the correct time zone.
4 Click OK.
2.5.4

When GroupWise is refreshed, it checks for new email and refreshes the screen to show new or
changed information. By default, GroupWise refreshes every minute. However, you can change the
refresh interval.
1 Click Tools > Options.
2 Double-click Environment, then click the General tab.
3 Under Refresh Interval, specify the number of minutes and seconds you want to pass before a
refresh, then click OK.
2.5.5
Customizing Date and Time Formats
GroupWise offers several date and time formats that determine the way dates and times display
throughout the application. For example, you might prefer dates to appear with the day first, followed
by the month, and then the year, such as 24 August, 2010.
The time and date formats in GroupWise are highly customizable. You can specify the order of
elements, the type of separators between elements, whether dates are spelled out or represented by
numbers, and several other options.
 “Setting Default Date and Time Formats” on page 56
 “Setting the General GroupWise Format” on page 57
 “Setting Specific GroupWise Formats” on page 57
Setting Default Date and Time Formats
There are three configurable date and time settings:
 Time: Use the Time setting to determine how times display.
 Short Date Format: Use the Short date setting to specify how the date appears in its short
format (typically, with numbers representing the day, month, and year).
 Long Date Format: Use the Long date setting to specify how the date appears in its long format
(typically, with numbers representing the day and year, and with the month spelled out).

Multiple Spell Checker dictionaries can be included when the GroupWise client is installed. To see a
list of Spell Checker language dictionaries that can be added, see “GroupWise User Languages” in
the GroupWise 18 Administration Guide.
In some circumstances, you might need to add a Spell Checker dictionary for a language that is not
included with your installation of the GroupWise client. The GroupWise Spell Checker supports
Hunspell/Myspell-compatible language dictionaries. Each language dictionary consists of two files
with identical file names: one ending with .aff extension, and the other with .dic extension.
To add a new language dictionary to the GroupWise Spell Checker:
1 Download the language dictionary files.
For example, language dictionaries can be found at the following websites:
 Apache OpenOffice Dictionary Extensions (http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/
search?f%5B0%5D=field_project_tags%3A157)
 Firefox Dictionary Extensions (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/)
2 Copy the .aff and .dic files into the GroupWise dictionaries directory, located at:
64-bit Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Novell\GroupWise\dictionaries
32-bit Windows: C:\Program Files\Novell\GroupWise\dictionaries
3 (Optional) Create a .txt file in the dictionaries directory, with the same name as the new
dictionary files.
Open the .txt file, type the name you would like the new dictionary to have when it appears in
the Spell Checker menu, then save the file.
4 Restart the GroupWise client.

Attaching a Document Reference to an Item
If the file you want to attach is a document stored in the GroupWise Library, you can attach a
document reference. When a recipient opens the attachment, the document in the library opens if the
recipient has rights to open or view the document and if the library is available.
If any recipients do not have sufficient document rights, if they are not using an email product that
supports the GroupWise Library, or if the library is unavailable, only a copy of the document opens. If
the recipient edits the copy, the changes do not affect the actual document in the library. For more
information about document rights, see Chapter 15, “Document Management,” on page 265.
To attach a document reference to an item:
1 Open a new item.
2 Fill in the To, Subject, and Message fields.

Adding a Signature or vCard
Use Signatures to insert a signature or tag line at the end of items you send. For example, you can
have GroupWise automatically list your name, phone number, and email address at the bottom of
every item you send.
If you have a number of different accounts, including POP3, IMAP4, and NNTP newsgroup accounts,
you can create a different signature for each account. You can also create multiple signatures for the
same account.
Signatures are created in HTML, which allows you to add graphics and formatting to your signature.
When you send a text message, the HTML signature is converted to text.
You can also have GroupWise automatically add a vCard, or virtual business card, to the end of
messages.

Routing Mail to Multiple Recipients Consecutively
Use Routing Slip to send a mail message or task to several users consecutively. You determine the
order of the route. When a user marks the routed item Completed, it is sent to the next user on the
route.
If the routed item includes attachments, each user on the route can view and add comments to them.
When comments are added to an attachment, all subsequent users on the route see the comments.
You can track the status of a routed item you have sent by viewing the item’s Properties. When you
send a routed item to an external address, the item is automatically marked Completed (because the
external recipient cannot mark it) and is sent to the next user on the route.
If you want to prevent a proxy from marking routed items Completed, you can require a password to
complete a routed item.

Requirements
The security features described in this section are available through any cryptographic providers that
use the Microsoft Cryptographic API and support full RSA and/or AES.
Adding Security
You can add security to the items you send by digitally signing them or encrypting them. When you
digitally sign an item, the recipient is able to verify that the item was not modified en route and that it
originated from you. When you encrypt an item, you are able to ensure that the intended recipient is
the only one who can read it.
When you sign or encrypt items using GroupWise, the recipients can read the items with any other S/
MIME-enabled email product.
Understanding Security Certificates
A security certificate is a file that identifies an individual or organization. Before you can send secure
items, you must obtain a security certificate. Use your web browser to obtain a certificate from an
independent certificate authority. See the GroupWise Digital Certificate web page (http://
www.novell.com/products/groupwise/technical-information/certificates.html) for a list of certificate
authorities.
You can also use LDAP to search for a security certificate.
You use your security certificate to digitally sign items you send. You use other users’ public security
certificates to verify digitally signed items they send to you.
To encrypt an item and have the recipient user decrypt it, you must have already received the user’s
public security certificate. An element of this security certificate, called the public key, is used to
encrypt the item. When the recipient opens the encrypted item, it is decrypted with another element
from the security certificate, called the private key.
There are two ways to obtain a user’s public security certificate:
 The user can send you a digitally signed item. When you open the item, you are prompted to add
and trust the security certificate.
 The user can export his or her public certificate, save it to a disk or external drive, and deliver it
to you. You then import the public certificate.
Receiving a Secure Item
Secure items are marked in your Item List with the following icons:

Description
Signed item
Encrypted item

Email
Using Security Service Providers
Depending on the security software you have installed, you can select different security service
providers for the items you send. For example, your organization might require you to use one
security service provider for work items because of a preferred encryption method, but you might
want a different security service provider for sending personal items. The security options available
depend on the security service provider you select.
See “Selecting a Security Service Provider” on page 76 for more information.
Advanced Information
GroupWise is compatible with the S/MIME version 2 and 3 specification. The security service
providers that GroupWise supports have common encryption algorithms such as RC2, RC4, and in
Windows 7 or later, AES. When digitally signing an item, GroupWise hashes the item into a message
digest using the standard SHA-1 algorithm. The message digest is distributed with the item being
sent.
See “Selecting a Security Service Provider” on page 76 for more information.
Digitally Signing or Encrypting a Message
To encrypt an item and enable the recipient to decrypt it, you must have received the recipient’s
public security certificate.
1 Ensure that you have a security certificate and that you have selected the security service
provider you want to use.
2 Open an item view.
3 Click the To field, type a user name, then press Enter. Repeat for additional users.
4 Click
to digitally sign the item.
5 Click
to encrypt the item.
6 Type a subject and message.
7 Click Send on the toolbar.
If you receive a Recipient Certificate Not Found message when you attempt to send the item,
one of the following is true: 1) You are trying to encrypt an item for a recipient and don’t have his
or her public certificate; 2) The email address in the public certificate does not match the
recipient’s email address; or 3) There is no email address in the recipient’s public certificate and
the recipient’s email address cannot be verified.
If 1) is true, you need to obtain the recipient’s public security certificate. If 2) or 3) is true, click
Find Certificate to locate the recipient’s certificate.
Digitally Signing or Encrypting All Messages
1 Click Tools > Options.
2 Double-click Security, then click the Send Options tab.

Your web browser launches and displays the GroupWise web page, which contains a list of
certificate authorities. This is only a partial list; GroupWise supports a wide variety of certificate
authorities.
4 Select the certificate authority you want to use, then follow the instructions on the website.
If you used Internet Explorer to obtain the certificate, the certificate is available in GroupWise. If
you used Firefox or Chrome to obtain the certificate, you need to export or back up the certificate
from the browser (see your browser’s documentation for how this is accomplished). For more
information, see “Importing or Exporting Security Certificates” on page 79.
5 In GroupWise, click Tools > Options, double-click Security, then click the Send Options tab.
6 Select Microsoft Base Cryptographic Provider or Microsoft Enhanced Cryptographic Provider
from the Name drop-down list under Select a security service provider.
Select the appropriate security service provider based on the encryption strength of the
certificate you are using. The encryption strength of a certificate depends on the encryption
strength of the browser used to obtain the certificate. For example, if you have Internet Explorer
with 128-bit encryption installed, the encryption is high, and only works with Microsoft Enhanced
Cryptographic Provider.

Understanding Auto-Save
When you compose a new message in GroupWise, items are automatically saved for you. This
prevents the loss of any messages you are authoring if GroupWise unexpectedly shuts down. When
GroupWise restarts, you have the option to recover these messages to finish composing them.
When you are composing a new message in GroupWise, by default the message is automatically
saved to disk every 30 seconds. The message is saved as a MIME file to c:\Documents and
Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Novell\GroupWise\GWItemSave.eml. The
file name increments if you are composing multiple messages simultaneously. When you save the
message to your Work in Progress folder or close the item, the auto-saved message is deleted.
When GroupWise starts, if there are auto-saved messages in the c:\Documents and
Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Novell\GroupWise directory, a window is
displayed letting you know you have auto-saved messages.
You have the following options for auto-saved messages:
Retrieve all saved messages into GroupWise: Recovers the auto-saved messages in GroupWise
so that you can finish composing the messages later.
Delete all saved messages: Deletes the auto-saved messages from disk. The information in them is
permanently lost.
Ask again next time GroupWise is started: Retains the saved messages on disk but does not
recover them in GroupWise. The next time that GroupWise is started, the same window reappears.
Enabling or Disabling Auto-Save
By default, Auto-Save is enabled.
1 Click Tools > Options, then double-click Environment.
2 Click the General tab, then deselect Enable auto-save to disable Auto-Save.
or
Select Enable auto-save to enable Auto-Save.
3 Click OK.
Saving an Unfinished Email
1 In an open item, click File > Save Draft.
2 Click the folder you want to save the item to, then click OK.

accepted or declined an appointment and included a comment, you see the comment in the
Properties window. You also see whether a recipient marked a task Completed.
The Properties window also shows information about items you receive. You can see who else
received the item (except for blind copy recipients), the size and creation date of attached files, and
more.

listed in groups according to what action they have taken with the item. The list of recipients displays
the recipient’s name, what actions the recipient has taken with the item, and any comments.
Advanced Properties: Displays the Properties header, recipients, Post Offices, files, and options for
the item. The Advanced Properties page is helpful to GroupWise administrators when they need to
track the item for troubleshooting purposes.

and reminder notes in your Calendar so you can view new messages while looking at your schedule.
Phone and mail messages stay in your Mailbox until you delete them. Appointments, reminder notes,
and tasks stay in your Mailbox until you accept, decline, or delete them. When you accept an
appointment, reminder note, or task, it is moved to your Calendar.
All Mailbox items are marked with an icon. The icons change depending on whether or not the item
has been opened. See Section 1.10, “Identifying Icons That Appear Next to Items,” on page 25 for

3.6.1
Understanding Junk Mail Handling
Internet email includes all email where the sender’s address is in the form of name@example.com,
name@example.org, and so forth.
Junk Mail Handling does not apply to internal email or appointments. Internal email is email where the
sender is part of your GroupWise system and the From field shows only the name of the sender, not
an Internet address as explained above. If you want to block or junk internal email or appointments,
you can use rules. (For more information, see Section 9.4, “Creating a Rule,” on page 219.)
You have three options for blocking or junking Internet email:
 You can add individual email addresses or entire Internet domains to a Block List. Items from
these addresses or Internet domains are blocked and never arrive in your Mailbox.
An Internet domain is the part of the email address that comes after the @. For example, in the
address Henry@example.com, the Internet domain is example.com.
However, email from contacts in your Frequent Contact address book and your corporate
address book is not blocked.
 You can add individual email addresses or entire Internet domains to a Junk List. Items from
these addresses or Internet domains are delivered to the Junk Mail folder in your Mailbox. You
can specify that the items in this folder be automatically deleted after a certain number days.
 You can specify that any email items from users whose addresses are not in your personal
address books (including your Frequent Contacts address book and any personal address
books you have created) are sent to the Junk Mail folder. This is sometimes called “white listing.”
For information about the Junk Mail folder, see “Junk Mail Folder” on page 20.
In addition to the Block List and Junk List, there is a Trust List. Use this list to add email addresses or
Internet domains that you do not want blocked or junked, no matter what is specified in the other two
lists. For example, you have example.com in your Block List, but you have one friend whose address
is myfriend@example.com. Add this friend’s email address to the Trust List.
If you specify Junk Mail Handling options in Caching or Remote mode, make sure to synchronize with
your Online Mailbox in order to see the same options when you log in to GroupWise on another
computer.
Your GroupWise administrator can turn off Junk Mail Handling so that it is not available.
3.6.2
Blocking or Junking All Email from a Particular User

Understanding the Calendar
You can use Graphic Display to show appointment duration in blocks to visualize time use in your
schedule or you can use Text Display to better comprehend the sequence of your appointments. Time
intervals in the Appointments List can be adjusted from ten minutes to two hours, depending on how
detailed you want the list to be. You can also define your work schedule to display only your office
hours on your Calendar. And by using Show Appointment As, you can display levels of availability for
appointments in your Calendar.
You can have multiple calendars that display in your calendar view. You can create a unique color for
each calendar, making it quickly identifiable in the calendar view. You can share each calendar or all
calendars with other users.
If you set automatic archiving, items that have been archived are no longer displayed on your
calendar. To make them appear on your calendar, unarchive the item from your archive calendar. For
more information on how to unarchive an item, see Section 16.3.6, “Unarchiving Items,” on page 273.
Use the Find drop-down lists in the Calendar header to find scheduled items according to category or
other find criteria.
Many types of calendar views and printouts are available to let you choose the one that displays the
information you need.

4.4.2
Scheduling Appointments
Use appointments to schedule blocks of time on a specific date or range of dates.
You can use Busy Search to check for a time when all the users and resources you want for an
appointment are available.
When you perform a Busy Search for users who are in a different time zone than you, GroupWise
takes into consideration the difference in time zones. For example, if you are trying to schedule a
meeting with a co-worker whose time zone is seven hours later than your own, that co-worker’s
workday is blocked out in the Busy Search sometime after 10:00 a.m. your time.
When you schedule an appointment and include yourself as a participant, GroupWise automatically
accepts the appointment for you unless there is a conflicting appointment, in which case you will
receive a notification stating you have a conflicting appointment. This occurs when you try to send the
appointment.

You can change the search range for one appointment by scheduling the appointment with Tools
> Busy Search and changing the number in the Number of days to search field.
This method is useful when you are scheduling recurring appointments or planning
appointments with users and you want to see the users’ schedules further into the future than the
default seven days.
Changing Busy Search Options
You can change the search range, time, and days default for all appointments on the Busy Search tab
in Date Time Options.
1 Click Tools > Options, double-click Calendar, then click the Busy Search tab.

Options include the range of dates or specific days to search.
3 Click OK.
Understanding All Day Events
When you are creating a GroupWise appointment, you can choose to make the appointment an all
day event by selecting All Day Event, located next to the time input field.
You can specify how you want the appointment to appear by clicking the availability button, located
below the All Day Event select box. Appointments can appear as Busy, Free, Out of the Office, or
Tentative. Unlike regular appointments, all recipients receive all day event appointments as Free by
default. This is because all day events are often intended to be strictly informational for recipients. For
example, you might send out an all day event to inform colleagues that you are going to be on
vacation. In this case, colleagues who receive the event are not shown as Busy on the day of the
event.
Changing How All-Day Events Are Displayed
You can change the way that all day events are accepted into your calendar by using the Options
menu.
1 Click Tools > Options, double-click Calendar, then click the General tab.
2 In the Accept Options area, click the drop-down menu located beneath Accept All-Day-Events I
send to myself as, then choose the option you want.
3 Click OK.
When you send an All-Day Event to recipients, the time appears as Free by default. The sender can
choose to have the event show as Busy in recipients’ calendars, but must do so each time they send
an All-Day Event.

Time Input
When you schedule appointments and other items you might be required to specify a time. In most
cases you have the option to specify the time by typing it directly into the time field or entering it
through the time input field. Click to open the time input window.
Use the green arrow to select a start time and the red arrow to select an end time. The currently
selected times display on the right side of the screen. You can use intervals as small as 15 minutes.
If a correct duration has already been entered, you can move it by dragging the selected area up or
down.
A time zone option is available to specify a specific time zone for the event. For more information on
time zones, see “Specifying a Time Zone for an Appointment” on page 127.
Specifying a Time Zone for an Appointment
The Time Zone feature lets you schedule a meeting for recipients in different time zones who will
meet in a single location.
Normally, GroupWise automatically adjusts meeting times based on the recipients’ time zones. For
example, a meeting scheduled by a user in Utah for 10:00 would be displayed as 9:00 for a recipient
in California and as 12:00 for a user in New York because these users are in different time zones.
Because GroupWise adjusts the time, all the users scheduled for a conference call can call in at the
same moment, even though their local time might differ.
Use the Time Zone feature if you don’t want GroupWise to adjust to the recipients’ local time zone.
For example, if you are in the Saskatchewan time zone and include users from the Mountain Time
(US & Canada) time zone in your appointment, you would use the Time Zone feature if these users
are flying to Saskatchewan for the appointment. Time Zone ensures that the appointment in their
Calendars and Mailboxes shows the correct Saskatchewan time.
1 Open and create a new appointment.
2 Click Actions > Select Time Zone, click the Time Zone drop-down list and select the time zone
for the appointment location, then click OK.
3 Click Send on the toolbar.
When the users you have scheduled with the Time Zone feature receive the appointment, they see a
time annotation after the subject when they see the appointment in their Mailboxes. For example, if
the subject of the meeting is “Marketing Conference” and the time zone is Saskatchewan, users
would see a subject and time annotation similar to the following: Marketing Conference
(Saskatchewan). In the users’ Calendars, the place is annotated with the time zone, rather than the
subject.
Canceling an Appointment
You can cancel an appointment if you scheduled it or if you have the necessary Proxy rights to the
scheduler’s Mailbox.

appointment is removed from the user’s calendar. Users who had the appointment delegated to them
do not receive a Meeting Cancelled message, but the appointment is removed from their calendar.
Modifying an Appointment
When an appointment is modified, changes simply appear on recipients’ appointments with no
message appearing in users’ mailboxes. The modified appointment is displayed as bold and a
notification banner is displayed inside the appointment, indicating to users which sections of the
appointment have been modified. Users are not prompted to re-accept the appointment.
For information on how to modify an appointment and other email items, see Section 3.2.5, “Editing
Sent Appointments, Tasks, and Reminder Notes,” on page 88.
To reschedule an appointment for a new time on the same day:

Scheduling Recurring Items
You can send appointments, tasks, and reminder notes as recurring items. Recurring items can be
scheduled daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, or according to custom settings that you define.
When you send a recurring item, GroupWise copies the item and places one of the defined dates in
each copy of the item. For example, if you define five dates for the event, GroupWise makes five
copies of the item and schedules one copy for each date. If you send the item to other users, you
have five outgoing items with five occurrences. If you receive the event, you find five copies of the
incoming item in your Mailbox, each scheduled for a different date.

availability, and add additional comments. You can also delegate the item to another user. The sender
can find your response by checking the item’s properties.
If you decline an appointment after its start time, the sender sees the appointment as deleted rather
then declined in the appointment’s properties.

original sender, who can then decide whether to accept the new time. If the change is accepted, the
original appointment is edited.
The recipient must be on a GroupWise 18 client to propose a new time. The originator must be on a
GroupWise 18 client to accept the new time and send the edited appointment. If the originator is on a
client earlier than GroupWise 18, the counter proposal is shown as an email with the original
appointment attached. The originator must then manually edit the original appointment if the
originator wants to use the new time.

Use Invite to invite other people to a scheduled item. Use Delegate and delete to reassign a
scheduled item to someone else and delete it from your calendar. The sender can determine who you
invited or delegated the item to by looking at the item’s properties.
When the message body, subject line, or To list of an appointment is modified by the original sender,
all recipients, including invited or delegated recipients, receive the modifications.
When the time or place of an appointment is modified by the original sender, the appointment is
retracted from all recipients; however, it is re-sent only to the original recipients. In this case, the
appointment must then be re-delegated.

Using the Multi-User Calendar
The Multi-User Calendar allows you to see a combined schedule for users and resources in a
graphical day, week, month, year, or multi-user column view (the Multi-User Columns view is a day
view that displays the schedule for each user in his or her own column). You can easily select and
140
Calendar
deselect users and resources so that their appointments are displayed or not displayed in the
combined view. For example, you can use a Multi-User Calendar to see your colleagues' schedules
or to check the availability of your company's conference rooms at a certain time.
In versions of GroupWise prior to GroupWise 18, the Multi-User Calendar allows you to see only the
Multi-User Columns view (the view that displays the day schedule for each user in his or her own
column). Likewise, if you create a Multi-User Calendar in a previous version of GroupWise and then
upgrade to GroupWise 18, you are able to see the Multi-User Calendar only in the Day view. You
must create a new Multi-User Calendar in order to see the calendar in multiple views.
IMPORTANT: You must have the appropriate Proxy rights for each user or resource in order to
include them in a Multi-User Calendar. (See Chapter 10, “Mailbox/Calendar Access for Proxy Users,”
on page 225.) For example, if you do not have Read rights for appointments, you cannot see another
person’s schedule in the Multi-User Calendar.

5 (Conditional) To assign colors to more than six users or resources, click the presence icon next
to their name in the Folder List.
Appointments for users and resources are displayed in separate columns in the Multi-User
Columns view. However, the appointments are combined into a single column in the Month,
Week, and Day views, so assigning a color to each user or resource is essential to differentiating
their appointments in these views.

Tasks and the Tasklist
5
A task is an item to be completed by a specified date and time. When you assign a task to a user, the
user can accept or decline the task, but until it is declined or completed, the task appears in the user’s
Tasklist and on the user’s Calendar each day.
The Tasklist folder contains any tasks that you post or accept, as well as any other item you place in it
as a reminder that the item needs to be acted upon.
 Section 5.1, “Understanding Tasks,” on page 149
 Section 5.2, “Understanding Quick Tasks/Follow-up Flags,” on page 149
 Section 5.3, “Understanding the Tasklist Folder,” on page 150
 Section 5.4, “Using Tasks,” on page 151
 Section 5.5, “Using Quick Tasks/Follow-up Flags,” on page 153
 Section 5.6, “Using the Tasklist Folder,” on page 154
5.1
Understanding Tasks
A task is an item that has a due date and requires a specific action. You can post a task for yourself or
accept a task from another person.
After it is accepted, a task appears on the Calendar on its start date and carries over to each
succeeding day. When the due date is past, the task displays in red on the Calendar.
After you finish a task, you can mark it as complete. When you mark a task as complete, it no longer
carries over to the next day on your Calendar.
As the originator of an assigned task, you can have GroupWise send you notification when the task is
marked as complete. (You must have Notify running to receive notification.) A Completed status,
including the date and time the task was marked as complete, is placed in the Properties window for
the task.
5.2
Understanding Quick Tasks/Follow-up Flags
In the GroupWise client, a quick task/follow-up flag option is available to the left of an item icon. This
allows you to click the flag icon and “flag” an item to signify that you want to follow-up on it. This
option is not available for discussion threads, proposed appointment lists, or the summary calendar.
When the item is flagged, it also appears in the Tasklist folder. When you click the flag icon, it cycles
through the following states:
 Flagged
 Completed
 Unflag
Tasks and the Tasklist
149
If you are running GroupWise Mobility Service 2.1 or later, and your mobile device supports flagging,
the flag state will sync to your device. Because some mobile devices only support the flagged and
unflagged states, when an item is marked as completed on these devices, it shows as if the flag is
cleared; however, it shows as completed in the GroupWise client and other devices that support all
three flag states.
In the GroupWise client, you can use Ctrl+t to toggle between the three flagged states. If you right
click the flag, you can perform the following actions:
 Assign a due date to the item (Section 5.5.1, “Setting a Due Date,” on page 153)
 Set a completion percentage for the task (Section 5.5.2, “Changing the Completion Percentage,”
on page 153)
 Set an alarm notification (Section 5.5.3, “Configure/Set Alarm,” on page 153)
 Set multiple options at once (Section 5.5.4, “Quick Tasklist Options,” on page 154)
 Remove the flag from the item (Section 5.5.5, “Removing an Item from the Tasklist,” on
page 154)
 Change the folder view (Section 5.5.6, “View as Tasklist/View Details,” on page 154)
5.3
Understanding the Tasklist Folder
The Tasklist folder is a system folder that is used to keep track of GroupWise tasks and other items
that require action. Think of it as a master list of all your tasks.
When you post or accept a task, it automatically appears in the Tasklist folder. In addition, any item
type (mail, appointment, task, reminder note, phone message) can be placed in the Tasklist folder.
For example, you can place an email in the Tasklist folder to remind yourself that you need to act on
it.
Items in the Tasklist folder do not always appear on the Calendar. Only items with a due date appear
on the Calendar. If you want an item in the Tasklist folder to appear on your Calendar, you must
assign that item a due date, as explained in Section 5.6.4, “Assigning a Due Date and Time to a
Tasklist Item,” on page 158.
After you have placed an item in the Tasklist folder, you can do the following:
 Change its position in the Tasklist (“Reordering the Tasklist Folder” on page 157)
 Assign a due date (Section 5.6.4, “Assigning a Due Date and Time to a Tasklist Item,” on
page 158)
 Track its progress by specifying the percent completed (“Specifying a Completion Percentage”
on page 158)
 Mark it as completed (Section 5.4.2, “Tracking Task Completion,” on page 152)
IMPORTANT: If you or your GroupWise administrator has set up auto-archiving of items in your
Mailbox, Tasklist items are also archived based on the original date you received the item, rather than
on the due date.

Calendar. Overdue tasks display in red.
If you mark a task as complete and then realize you left some part of it incomplete, you can unmark it.
Unmarked tasks display on the current day in your Calendar.
When you mark a task as complete, GroupWise sends a notification to the originator of the task if he
or she selected return notification in Send Options. A Completed status, including the date and time
the task was marked as complete, is placed in the originator’s Properties window.

Contacts and Address Books
6
Use an address book like a contact management tool, phone directory, and information center for
your addressing needs.
Address books are databases that store names and addresses, email addresses, phone numbers,
and much more. Contacts folders can display address book information in convenient address card
format or as a list. Entries in an address book can be a contact, group, resource, or organization.

6.1
Understanding Address Books
GroupWise uses the following types of address books:
 Section 6.1.1, “GroupWise Address Book,” on page 161
 Section 6.1.2, “Frequent Contacts Address Book,” on page 162
 Section 6.1.3, “Personal Address Books,” on page 162
 Section 6.1.4, “LDAP Address Book,” on page 163
6.1.1
GroupWise Address Book
The GroupWise Address Book is the address book configured and maintained by the GroupWise
administrator. Use the GroupWise Address Book to view information about everyone in your
GroupWise system.
The GroupWise Address Book is marked with a
icon in the Address Book list.
Because the GroupWise Address Book is generally quite large, you might want to search for names
or use predefined filters to find the name you are looking for, rather than scrolling through the entire
address book. For more information, see “Searching for Users, Resources, Organizations, and
Groups” on page 185 and “Using Filters to Narrow an Address Search” on page 186.
The Address Book sorts all names alphabetically by first name. If you want to view names by the last
name, you can edit the columns to remove the Name column and add the First Name and Last Name
columns. For more information, see “Specifying the Columns to Display in an Address Book” on
page 187.
You can view information about contacts in the GroupWise Address Book, but you cannot edit this
information.
Contacts and Address Books
161
When you use Remote mode, you can restrict the entries that are downloaded from the GroupWise
Address Book to reduce download time. For more information, see “Filtering the GroupWise Address
Book for Your Remote Mailbox” on page 245.
6.1.2
Frequent Contacts Address Book
Use the Frequent Contacts address book to access your most frequently used or most recently used
entries. When you use an address in a message, the entry is copied to the Frequent Contacts
address book if the book’s options are set to do so. You can view the date and time you last used an
entry and the number of times you have used it.
The Frequent Contacts address book is marked with a
icon in the Address Book list.
Although the Frequent Contacts address book is created by GroupWise, it is considered a personal
address book because you can edit the information for contacts.
After an entry is placed in Frequent Contacts, it remains there until you delete it. The entry also
remains in its original address book.
You can use Frequent Contacts Properties to decide which addresses to capture (if any) from either
received or sent items, and how long you want addresses to remain in the address book before
deleting them. For more information, see “Setting Frequent Contacts Properties” on page 182.
If you select the Junk Mail Handling option to only accept mail from contacts in personal address
books, you can receive mail from any contact in the Frequent Contacts address book. For more
information, see “Junking Email from Users Not In a Personal Address Book” on page 108.
6.1.3
Personal Address Books
You can create, edit, save, and rename multiple address books for your personal use, and you can
share these address books with other users. For more information, see “Displaying Quick Info” on
page 184.
Personal address books are marked with a
icon in the Address Book list.
You can add and delete names and address information for any contact (person, company, or
resource) you want in your personal address books. You can also create your own information
properties (fields). When you create a personal address book, a book icon is added to the Address
Book list. You can expand and collapse open books by clicking + and -.
When you create multiple address books, you can include the same name and address in several
books. If the entry is copied from an address book and you edit the entry’s information in one book, it
is updated in all books.
Personal address books list addresses according to your preferences. You can also create personal
groups. If you save a list of people as a group, you only need to type the group name in the To box to
send the entire group a message. For more information, see “Organizing Addresses in Groups” on
page 172.
162
Contacts and Address Books
6.1.4
LDAP Address Book
The LDAP Address Book supports LDAP (Lightweight Directory Services Protocol) for accessing
external directory services. You can add directory services from your Internet service provider or
third-party companies.
LDAP Address Books are marked with a
icon.
You can connect to an LDAP server through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to assure increased
security for the LDAP Address Books you access. Connecting through SSL requires that you have a
digital certificate, which enables GroupWise to use SSL to authenticate to the LDAP server you have
chosen.
After you complete a directory service search, you can add the names you find to your personal
address books.
While using Remote or Caching mode, you can perform a directory service search without connecting
to GroupWise.
6.2
Understanding Contacts Folders
The Frequent Contacts folder
in the GroupWise Folder List represents the Frequent Contacts
address book. Additional Contacts folders represent your personal address books.
Any modification you make in a Contacts folder is also made in the corresponding address book
(Frequent Contacts or other personal address book).
The Simple Folder List displays a list of your personal Contacts folders under the Frequent Contacts
folder. You can quickly select a different Contacts folder by clicking it in the Simple Folder List.
Likewise, the Full Folder List displays a list of personal Contacts folders under the Frequent Contacts
folder.

Addressing Items
There are multiple ways to address an item in GroupWise:

Contacts and Address Books
163
Configuring Name Completion
By default, Name Completion uses names in your Frequent Contacts and the GroupWise Address
Book. You can configure GroupWise to use additional books when performing Name Completion.
1 In the folder list in the Main Window, right-click the address book that you would like to configure,
then click Properties.
2 On the General tab, check the Include this book when name completing box to choose whether
to include the address book.
3 Click OK.
4 (Optional) Repeat steps 1-3 for each additional address book you would like to configure.
Addressing an Item with Name Completion
When you begin typing a name (first, last, or display name) or an email address in the To, CC, or BC
field of an item that you are creating, Name Completion tries to complete the name or email address
for you by displaying a list of recipients whose names or email addresses contain the letters you
typed. It searches address books for which you’ve enabled Name Completion to find entries that
match what you’re typing. Results are sorted by relevance, so users who you contact more frequently
appear first in the name completion results list.
If Name Completion finds the user you are looking for, you can stop typing. If Name Completion
doesn’t find it, continue typing. Name Completion searches again after each new character you type.
If Name Completion finds a name or email address that is close to, but doesn’t exactly match the one
you are looking for, you can use the Up-arrow or Down-arrow keys to scroll to adjacent names in the
results list.
If Quick Info is enabled, as described in Section 6.5.12, “Displaying Quick Info,” on page 184, you can
display contact information by mousing over names or email addresses in the results list to help you
identify the contact you want. If the contact you want has multiple email addresses, you can use the
Up-arrow or Down-arrow keys to select the email address you want to use.
Name Completion with Duplicate Names
When you use name completion, you might have two contacts with the same name. When name
completion finds two people with the same name but different email addresses, the results list
displays both email addresses so that you can select the correct contact. Mousing over any item
provides additional information to help you select the correct name. After you make your selection,
the name is added to your Frequent Contacts and is your first result the next time you send an email
to that user.
6.3.2
Using the Address Selector
When you are composing a new item and you click Address on the item view toolbar, the Address
Selector displays. The Address Selector presents a simplified address book view, providing you with
the options you need to select a name or create a group.

Contacts and Address Books
Understanding the Address Selector
The Address Selector displays in other places throughout GroupWise, such as when you are
selecting members of a group or entries for a Find. It might be slightly modified to show only contextappropriate options.
In the Address Selector, you view one address book at a time. To choose a different address book to
look at, click an address book in the Look in drop-down list.
Double-click the entries you want placed in To, CC, or BC fields of the item you are addressing. You
can use the drop-down list to restrict the list of entries to contacts, groups, or resources. You can
search the list by name, first name, or last name by using the Match drop-down list. If an entry is
marked with a +, it has multiple email addresses.
You can add and remove columns and change the column order in the list of address entries. You can
change the sort order of the list based on the entries in any column. You can resize the Address
Selector by dragging a corner of the window. You can open a contact entry to view details by clicking
the contact, then clicking Details.
You can add contacts to the right pane and then create a group by clicking Save Group. If you click
the down-arrow on the Save Group button, you can select which address book the group is saved to.
Otherwise it is saved to the address book displayed in the Address Selector.
You can create new contacts by using the New Contact button. This button is not active if you are
currently displaying the GroupWise Address Book or any other address book that you don’t have
rights to edit (for example, a shared address book or an LDAP Address Book). To create a new
contact, click New Contact, enter the contact information in the different tabs, then click OK. For more
information, see Section 6.4.2, “Managing Contacts,” on page 168.
To create a routing slip in the item you are creating, click Routing Slip. For more information, see
“Creating a Routed Message” on page 72.

or first name), then type the recipient’s name.
8 Click OK.
If you know the person’s name, begin typing it in the To field of the item view. In the Address Selector,
Name Completion searches the currently selected address book. When Name Completion finds the
person you want to send a message to, you can stop typing. If Name Completion finds a name that is
close to but doesn’t exactly match the one you are looking for, use the Up-arrow or Down-arrow keys
to scroll to adjacent names in the address Book. If Name Completion does not find the person, select
a different address book in the Address Selector.

Contacts and Address Books
Changing the Display Name of a Contact
The display name is the name that appears when you begin typing in the To, BC, or CC field of a
message. When you begin typing a name, for example “Ar,” Name Completion displays a results list
with names or email addresses from the address book that contain those letters, for example “Arthur
Ramirez.” However, if there are two people named Arthur Ramirez in the address book, one in
Accounting and one in Development, it might be difficult for you to know which name Name
Completion has filled in, unless you take the time to look at more properties.
You can change the display name so that it’s easy to know which name Name Completion has filled
in. For example, if you only correspond with Arthur Ramirez in Development, and if he goes by Art
rather than Arthur, you could change the display name to Art Ramirez.
1 Click a Contacts folder.
2 Double-click a contact.
3 Click the Contact tab.
4 Type a new name in the Display As field (for example, Art Ramirez).

A group is a list of users or resources you can send messages to. Use groups to send a message to
several users or resources by typing the group name in the To, BC, or CC fields. There are two types
of groups: public and personal.
A public group is a list of users created by the GroupWise administrator, and it is available for use by
each GroupWise user. For example, there might be a public group for the Accounting Department.
Each employee in Accounting is included in the group. Public groups are listed in the GroupWise
Address Book.
A personal group is a group created by you. For example, if you often send an appointment to your
work group, you can include each co-worker’s address or name and a meeting place (a resource) in a
personal group.
Each group in a Contacts folder is marked with

Managing Resources
Resources are items that can be scheduled for meetings or other uses. Resources can include
rooms, computer projectors, cars, and more. The GroupWise administrator defines a resource by
giving it an identifying name and assigning it to a user. Resources can be included in a busy search,
just as users can. Resource IDs are entered in the To box. A user assigned to manage a resource is
the owner of that resource.
The owner of a resource is responsible for accepting and declining appointments for the resource. In
order to do so, the owner must have full proxy rights to the resource. As a resource owner, you can
select to receive notification of appointments for the resource.

Similarly, there are also no GroupWise limitations on the number of entries that can be contained
within a Shared Address book.
NOTE: Because system performance depends on the hardware being used to run GroupWise,
sharing an address book with many users or having an extremely large amount of entries within a
Shared Address book can cause performance issues.

The CSV Fields column lists the data fields as provided in the .csv file. The CSV Data column
lists the data provided in the .csv file. The GroupWise Fields column lets you choose the
associations between CSV fields and GroupWise fields.
By default, the import process can recognize characters such as comma (,), semicolon (;), and
colon (:) as field delimiters. It can also recognize characters such as quotation marks (") as text
delimiters. However, if unusual characters are used as delimiters, the import process won’t
recognize them.

Quickly Finding Items in a Folder
If the folder you are in (for example, your Mailbox or Calendar) contains many items, you might have
a difficult time finding the one you want. The Find feature lets you list items by sender and by text in
the Subject field. It also lets you display items according to specific search criteria such as received
items, sent items, personal items, draft items, items in a particular category, or items with
attachments.
When you use Find, all items that do not match your search criteria are hidden from view. Find does
not actually move or delete items from the folder; it displays certain items based on the search criteria
you specify. When you clear the search criteria, the hidden items are displayed again.
When you use Find, GroupWise searches the sender, recipients, message subject, message text,
and attachments for the specified word or phrase.

messages from two or three users at once.
7.2.2
Narrowing a Global Find
You can use Find to narrow your search.
 In the first field of the Find dialog box, type the uncommon words you notice in the item. If you
search using common words, the results of your search are probably too large to be very helpful.
 To increase the speed of your search, deselect the folders and libraries you know do not contain
the item you are looking for. For example, if you know your document is not in Library C, click the
plus (+) sign next to All Libraries in the Look in box, then click Library C to deselect it.
 If you are searching for more than one word or want to search for words in a particular field of an
item (such as the Subject field), click Advanced Find to set up your search. The words you type
can be combined with operators to further narrow the search.
 If you cannot find the document or message, check your search criteria for misspelled words.
Also check the syntax of your search to ensure that you are telling Find to search for exactly
what you want.

Insert Row: Inserts a new row below the current row and pushes the remaining rows down.
Insert Row is useful if you have already created some search criteria and you want to add more
criteria in the middle.
Delete Row: Removes the current row from the search criteria.
New Group: Begins a new group of rows. You can then join the groups by an And or Or. If two
groups are joined by And, the items must match all conditions in both groups. If two groups are
joined by Or, the items must match all conditions in either group, but not necessarily both.
End: Designates the last row of conditions in the search criteria. If you select End in a row that is
followed by other rows or groups, the subsequent rows and groups are deleted.

 Section 7.5.3, “Comparing GroupWise Versions,” on page 209
7.5.1
Comparing Search Results
Like other search engines, the GroupWise search engine creates an index of whole words that are
contained in the items being searched. When you search with Global Find, GroupWise compares
your search criteria and attempts to match them with the words in the search index. Because Global
Find searches for whole words, Global Find does not locate punctuation or partial words, unless you
use a wildcard character.
On the other hand, Find recognizes consecutive characters, even if they are not whole words, as long
as the characters exist in exactly the same order you enter them in the Find field.
For example, if you are looking for an email with “Project status meeting next Tuesday” as the
subject, you can search for any or all of the words in the subject in either Find or Global Find.
The following are among the successful search criteria results for this scenario:
Tool
Example

“tuesday” somewhere in the subject.

Notify

Notify is a program that works with GroupWise to alert you when you have new items placed in your
mailbox, when your outgoing items are opened, or when you have an upcoming appointment.
 Section 8.1, “Understanding Notify,” on page 211
 Section 8.2, “Starting Notify,” on page 212
 Section 8.3, “Using Notify,” on page 212
 Section 8.4, “Customizing Notify,” on page 213
 Section 8.5, “Being Notified of Someone Else’s Messages,” on page 215
 Section 8.6, “Turning Off Notification,” on page 215
8.1
Understanding Notify
Notify can alert you in four ways: a sound, a dialog box, a small icon, or by launching an application.
Notification
Method
What Happens
Notify icon on the
Windows taskbar
An envelope appears over the Notify icon in the taskbar when you receive a new item or
an alarm. If the Notify icon doesn’t appear on the taskbar, Notify is not running.
Notify dialog box
The Notify dialog box opens on top of whatever application you are using when you
receive a new item or alarm.
Notify sound
Notify plays a system beep or sound file when you receive an item. When you receive an
alarm, the sound plays once every five minutes until you clear the alarm from the
Notification List.
Notification list
The Notification List is a dialog box that lists all of the new, unopened items and alarms
you have received. You can leave it open on your desktop, or you canopen it from the
Notify icon when you want to see it.
You can receive alarms and notifications for another user if that user gives you rights in the Access
List and if you are on the same post office as that user. See Chapter 10, “Mailbox/Calendar Access
for Proxy Users,” on page 225. If you are sending messages to non-GroupWise systems, remember
that those systems must have status tracking capability in order to return the status of your outgoing
message to your GroupWise system.
Notify is installed in the same folder as GroupWise when you run GroupWise Setup. Notify runs
minimized in the background while you run other programs.
When Notify is running, the
appears in your Windows notification area.
Notify

8.2
Starting Notify
NOTE: If you cannot start Notify as described in this section, you should re-install the GroupWise
client, then select to install Notify when the GroupWise client is installed. If your GroupWise
administrator installed the GroupWise client for you, contact your GroupWise administrator.
There are two ways to start Notify.
 Section 8.2.1, “Starting Notify When GroupWise Starts,” on page 212
 Section 8.2.2, “Starting Notify from the Windows Start Menu,” on page 212
8.2.1
Starting Notify When GroupWise Starts
You can configure Notify to start when GroupWise is opened, whether you use a shared workstation
or your own.
1 In GroupWise, click Tools > Options.
2 Double-click Environment, then click the General tab.
3 Select Launch Notify at startup.
This starts Notify when GroupWise starts and closes Notify when GroupWise is closed.
4 Click OK, then click Close.
8.2.2
Starting Notify from the Windows Start Menu
1 Click the Start icon on the Windows taskbar.
2 Click All Programs > Novell GroupWise > Notify.
To make access easier, you can create a shortcut to Notify on your Windows desktop.
8.3
Using Notify
When you receive a notification, the Notify dialog box displays for 15 seconds and then closes.
During that time, you have the following options:
Clear: Clears the notification from your screen. Cleared alarms do not repeat.
Read: Opens the item for you to read.
Delete: Deletes the item without opening it.
Close All: Closes the Notify dialog box. If there are multiple notifications in your Notification List,
subsequent notifications do not display.
Close: Closes the Notify dialog box. If there are multiple notifications in your Notification List, the next
notification displays.

Rules

You can automate many GroupWise actions, such as replying when you’re out of the office, deleting
items, or sorting items into folders, by using Rules to define a set of conditions and actions to be
performed when an item meets those conditions.
 Section 9.1, “Understanding Rules,” on page 217
 Section 9.2, “Actions a Rule Can Perform,” on page 217
 Section 9.3, “Events That Trigger a Rule,” on page 219

 Section 9.7, “Running a Rule Manually,” on page 222
 Section 9.8, “Deleting a Rule,” on page 223
9.1
Understanding Rules
When you create a rule, you must do the following:
 Name the rule.
 Select an event. The event is the trigger that starts the rule.
 Select the types of items that will be affected by the rule.
 Add an action. The action is what you want the rule to do when it is triggered.
 Save the rule.
 Ensure that the rule is enabled.
You can specify many more options to limit which items a rule affects. For example, you can apply a
rule to accepted appointments, to items with a certain word in the Subject box, or to items with a high
priority. You can then use Define Conditions to limit your rules further. See “Limiting Items Affected by
a Rule” on page 221.
9.2
Actions a Rule Can Perform
The following table shows the actions you can perform with rules:
Action
Result
Send Mail
Sends a prepared mail message to the recipients you specify when the rule conditions
are met. For example, if you need to inform your boss each time you receive a monthly
report from another group of people, you can have a rule send a message as soon as
you receive the report.
Rules
217
Action
Result
Forward
Forwards items to one or more users when the rule conditions are met. For example, if
you are on a project core team, you can have a rule forward meeting minutes to
extended team members.
This action forwards the message as a regular message item, with the forwarded
message visible in the message.
Forward as
Attachment
Forwards items as attachments to one or more users when the rule conditions are met.
For example, if you are on a project core team, you can have a rule forward meeting
minutes to extended team members.
Delegate
Delegates an appointment, reminder note, or task to another user when the rule
conditions are met. For example, if someone is covering for you while you’re away
from the office, your rule can delegate appointments, tasks, or reminder notes to that
person.
Reply
Sends a prepared reply to the sender when the rule conditions are met. For example,
if you need to be out of the office for several days, your rule could send a reply to
incoming items indicating when you’ll be back.
You can also use Define Conditions to prevent replies from going to mail list servers
and other large groups.
218
Rules
Accept
Accepts an appointment, reminder note, or task when the rule conditions are met. For
example, your rule could accept all appointments from a specific individual.
Category
Assigns a category to any item meeting the specified conditions. Categories include
Low Priority, Urgent, Follow-up, Personal, and any other user-defined category.
Delete/Decline
Deletes or declines any item when the rule conditions are met. For example, your rule
could decline any appointment scheduled for a certain day of the week if you are
always unavailable for meetings on that day.
Empty Item
Deletes items from the Trash when the rule conditions are met. For example, your rule
could empty items received from a company that routinely sends you junk mail.
Move to Folder
Moves items to a folder when the rule conditions are met. For example, you might
want all items with certain words in the Subject box moved to a common folder.
Link to Folder
Links items to one or more folders when the rule conditions are met. Linking an item to
a folder lets you view the item from more than one folder. For example, if you have an
item that relates to Marketing and Personnel, you can place it in the Marketing folder,
and then link it to the Personnel folder. You can then open the item from either folder.
Mark as Private
Marks all items matching the rule conditions as Private. When an item is marked
Private, you can restrict your proxies from accessing the item. For example, your rule
could mark all items from your family members to be Private.
Mark as Read
Marks all items matching the rule conditions as if they have been read. For example, if
you are skimming a reply thread in a shared folder and no longer want to follow the
thread, your rule could mark all the items in the thread as if they had been read so they
don’t sort to the top of the Item List.
Archive
Archives items when the rule conditions are met. For example, your rule could archive
all items regarding a certain subject. Archive is not available to use as an action when
the triggering event is New Item or Filed Item.
Mark as Unread
Marks all items matching the rule conditions as if they have not been read. For
example, you could create a user-activated rule to mark as unread all items you have
opened from your manager as a reminder to re-read or act on them.
9.3
Action
Result
Stop Rule
Processing
Stops other rules from acting on items that meet the rule conditions. Rules are
executed in the order they are listed in the Rules dialog box. If other rules would
normally affect these items, this rule action prevents the other rules from executing.
Events That Trigger a Rule
Several events can cause a rule that you create to be activated. In addition, you can limit the items
that are affected by a rule. For more information, see “Limiting Items Affected by a Rule” on page 221.
9.4
Event
Result
New Item
The rule is triggered when a new item is placed in your GroupWise Mailbox.
Clicking Received lets only incoming items trigger the rule. Clicking Sent lets
only items you send trigger the rule. Clicking Personal triggers the rule each
time you create a personal appointment, reminder note, or task. Clicking Draft
lets only items marked as unfinished, or draft, trigger the rule.
Filed Item
The rule is triggered when an item is placed in a specific folder. If you do not
specify a folder, the rule is triggered when an item is moved to any folder.
Completed Item
The rule is triggered when a task is marked as completed.
Open Folder
The rule is triggered when you open a specific folder. If you do not specify a
folder, the rule is triggered when you open any folder.
Close Folder
The rule is triggered when you close a specific folder. If you do not specify a
folder, the rule is triggered when you close any folder.
Startup
The rule is triggered when you start GroupWise.
Exit
The rule is triggered when you exit GroupWise.
User Activated
The rule can only be triggered manually by selecting the rule in the Rules dialog
box and then clicking Run. For example, instead of a rule always moving certain
items into a folder, you might want the items to accumulate in your Mailbox until
you’re ready for them to be moved all at once. To trigger a rule manually, you
must first select the items or folders that the rule affects in your Mailbox or
Calendar view.
Creating a Rule
Rules can help you sort your messages, inform others that you’re on vacation, or forward your
messages to another email account.
If you create a rule in Online mode, the rule is created in Caching mode when your client connects to
the GroupWise system to refresh the GroupWise address book. This connection happens at a
scheduled interval, as described in “Automatically Downloading Address Books to Your Mailbox” on
page 232. You can also initiate the connection manually by clicking Tools > Rules > Refresh while in
Caching mode.

9.4.2
Creating a Vacation Rule or Auto Reply
When you create and activate a vacation rule, GroupWise blocks out your calendar with All Day
Events for the dates that you specify and shows you with an Out of Office status. The Vacation Rule
widget
at the bottom right of the client will also change colors when your vacation rule is active.
1 Click Tools > Vacation Rule...
or
Click the Vacation Rule widget.
2 Select Turn on my vacation rule.
In order for your vacation rule to truly be active, you must select this option and specify a date
range. Because the vacation rule is active only within the date range that you specify, leaving
this option always selected does not mean that your vacation rule is always active. Your vacation
rule expires after the last day in the date range that you specify.
If you deselect this option before the rule has expired, the All Day Events are deleted from your
calendar.
3 Type a subject for the automatic reply.
Subjects appear in parentheses after the original message subject in the reply. For example, if
the subject is “Out of Office reply” and the message “Budget monitoring” is sent to you, the Auto
Reply feature returns the subject “Re: Budget monitoring (Out of Office reply).”
4 Type the message that you want to appear in the automatic reply. For example, "Thank you for
your message. I am currently out of the office. [and so forth]."

Mailbox/Calendar Access for Proxy
Users
10
Use Proxy to manage another user’s Mailbox and Calendar. Proxy lets you perform various actions,
such as reading, accepting, and declining items on behalf of another user, within the restrictions the
other user sets. As a proxy user, you do not need the mailbox owner’s password because the mailbox
owner grants you the access rights he or she wants you to have in the mailbox. There is currently no
limit to the number of proxy accounts you can allow or manage.
IMPORTANT: You can proxy for a user in a different post office or domain, as long as that person is in
the same GroupWise system. You cannot proxy for a user in a different GroupWise system.
 Section 10.1, “Understanding Proxy Access,” on page 225
 Section 10.2, “Granting Proxy Rights as a Mailbox Owner,” on page 225
 Section 10.3, “Protecting Private Items as a Mailbox Owner,” on page 226
 Section 10.4, “Becoming a Proxy User in Another User’s Mailbox,” on page 227
10.1
Understanding Proxy Access
Keep the following in mind when setting up Proxy access to your mailbox:
 Proxies cannot see the contacts within your Contacts folder at any time.
 Proxies cannot archive items from your mailbox. This is because the archive directory is typically
a local directory that a proxy cannot access.
 After a proxy user opens a mail message, the message is displayed as having been opened to
both the proxy user and the mailbox owner. If a mailbox owner wants messages that have been
opened by a proxy user to be displayed as not having been read, the mailbox owner can ask the
proxy user to mark items as Unread after the proxy user has viewed a message. There is no way
for a mailbox owner to know if a proxy user has read a message.
 Appointments scheduled by proxy users are not automatically accepted in the mailbox owner’s
calender. This enables the mailbox owner to review any appointments sent by proxies before
choosing whether to accept or decline them.
10.2
Granting Proxy Rights as a Mailbox Owner
Before you can act as a proxy for someone, that person must give you proxy rights in his or her
Access List. As a mailbox owner, you can assign each user different rights to your calendaring and
messaging information. For example, if you want to let users view specific information about your
appointments when they do a busy search on your Calendar, give them Read access for
appointments.
See Section 10.1, “Understanding Proxy Access,” on page 225 for a list of functionality differences
when you use proxy access.
Mailbox/Calendar Access for Proxy Users
225
To grant another user proxy rights to your mailbox:
1 Click Tools > Options.
2 Double-click Security, then click the Proxy Access tab.
3 To add a user to the list, type the name in the Name field; when the full name appears, click Add
User.
4 Click a user in the Access List.
5 Select the rights you want to give to the user.
Read: Read items you receive.
Write: Create and send items in your name, including applying your signature (if you have one
defined). Assign categories to items, change the subject of items, perform tasklist options on
items, and delete items.
Subscribe to my alarms: Receive the same alarms that you receive. Receiving alarms is
supported only if you and the proxy are on the same post office.
Subscribe to my notifications: Receive notifications when you receive items. Receiving
notifications is supported only if you and the proxy are on the same post office.
Read items marked private: Read the items you marked Private. If you don’t give a proxy
Private rights, all items marked Private in your Mailbox are hidden from that proxy.
Modify: You can select which options the proxy user can change. If Options is selected, the
proxy user can modify any options except Security options. The Security options box is only
available if Options is selected. If Security options is selected, the proxy user has access to
change your password, notifications, proxy access, and send options. If given Rules rights, the
proxy can edit any of your rules. If given Folders rights, the proxy user can create or modify
folders.
6 Repeat Step 4 and Step 5 to assign rights to each user in the Access List.
You can select All User Access in the Access List and assign rights to all users in the Address
Book. For example, if you want all users to have rights to read your mail, assign Read rights to
All User Access.
7 To delete a user from the Access List, click the user, then click Remove User.
8 Click OK.
10.3
Protecting Private Items as a Mailbox Owner
You can limit a proxy’s access to individual items in your Mailbox or Calendar by marking items
Private.
When you mark an item Private, you prevent proxies who lack the correct rights from opening it.
Proxies cannot access items marked Private unless you give them those rights in your Access List.
If you mark an item Private when you send it, neither your proxies nor the recipient’s proxies can
open the item without rights. If you mark an item Private when you receive it, it cannot be read by your
unauthorized proxies, but it can be read by the sender’s proxies. Appointments marked Private
display in Busy Search according to the status you selected when you accepted the appointment.
1 In an open item, click Actions > Mark Private.
or
In your Calendar, click an item in the Appointments, Reminder Notes, or Task List, then click
Actions > Mark Private.
226
Mailbox/Calendar Access for Proxy Users
It is also possible to set up a rule to automatically mark an item as Private when it is moved into a
certain folder or calendar. For example, if you want to keep all items in a sub-calendar private, you
can assign a rule to mark all items in that calendar as Private. For more information on creating a
rule, see “Creating a Rule” on page 219.
10.4
Becoming a Proxy User in Another User’s Mailbox
1 In the Main Window or Calendar, click File > Proxy.
or
Click the Mode Selector icon, then click Proxy.
2 To add a user, type the name in the Name field, then click OK.
The user’s Mailbox is opened. The name of the person for whom you are acting as proxy is
displayed at the top of the Folder List.
See Section 10.1, “Understanding Proxy Access,” on page 225 for a list of functionality
differences when you use proxy access.
If the user has not yet given you proxy rights in his or her Access List, the user’s name is added
to the Proxy List, but the user’s Mailbox is not opened.
3 To return to your own Mailbox, click the folder list header drop-down list, then click your name.
TIP: You can work with several Mailboxes open at one time. (Click Window, click New Main Window,
then switch to the Mailbox you want.) You can tell the Mailboxes apart by looking for the Mailbox
owner’s name, which appears as the root folder label for each Mailbox.
To remove a user from the Proxy List:
1 In the Main Window or Calendar, click File > Proxy.
or
Click the Mode Selector icon, then click Proxy.
2 Click the name you want to delete, then click Remove.
Removing a user from your Proxy List does not remove your rights to act as proxy for that user. The
user whose Mailbox you access must change your rights in his or her Access List.

Caching and Remote Modes
1
You can store a copy of your mailbox (including your messages and other information) on your local
drive in two different ways. Caching mode reduces network traffic because it doesn’t require
continuous access to the network. Remote mode allows you to specify the type of connection you
have, and also allows you to restrict how much information is retrieved.
 Section 11.1, “Using Caching Mode,” on page 229
 Section 11.2, “Using Remote Mode,” on page 234
To see how to back up your mailbox while in Remote or Caching mode, see Section 16.6, “Backing
Up Email,” on page 275.
11.1
Using Caching Mode
Caching mode stores a copy of your network mailbox, including your messages and other
information, on your local drive. This allows you to use GroupWise whether or not your network or
Post Office Agent is available. Because you are not connected to the network all the time, this mode
cuts down on network traffic and has the best performance. A connection is made automatically to
retrieve and send new messages. All updates are performed in the background so that your work is
not interrupted.
You should use this mode if you have enough disk space on your local drive to store your mailbox.

11.1.1
Understanding Caching Features
Most GroupWise features are available in Caching mode, with the exception of subscribing to other
users’ notifications.
Several users can set up their Caching Mailboxes on a single shared computer.
If you run Caching Mode and Remote Mode on the same computer, the same local mailbox (also
called the Caching Mailbox or Remote Mailbox) can be used to minimize disk space usage. For
information about Remote mode, see Section 11.2, “Using Remote Mode,” on page 234.
Caching and Remote Modes
229
If disk space is limited, you can restrict the items that are downloaded to your local mailbox. You can
specify to get the subject line only or specify a size limit.
Your GroupWise administrator can specify settings that do not allow you to use Caching mode or that
require you to use only Caching mode.
11.1.2
Setting Up Your Caching Mailbox
Setting up a Caching Mailbox requires enough disk space (either on your local hard drive or another
network drive) to store all the data in your mailbox.
1 Ensure that GroupWise is installed on the computer where you want to set up your Caching
Mailbox.
2 Click File > Mode > Caching.
or
Click Caching on the drop-down list above the Folder List.
3 Type the path for your Caching Mailbox, then click OK.
GroupWise automatically updates the Caching Mailbox with an image of the Online Mailbox. The
initial update or “priming” should not be interrupted until it is complete. You are prompted to
restart GroupWise to change to the Caching Mode.
After the Caching Mailbox is primed, you might want to run GroupWise in Caching Mode without
changing modes from Online to Caching.
GroupWise automatically starts in the mode that it was last in.
11.1.3
Changing to Caching Mode
To change to Caching mode from any other mode:
1 Click the Mode Selector icon
, then click Caching.
If your Caching mailbox is not located at the location currently specified in the Caching mailbox
directory field (under Tools > Options > Environment > File Location), you are prompted for the
location. This could happen if you run GroupWise on a workstation that is shared by multiple
GroupWise users who have local Caching mailboxes.
If your Caching mailbox password is different from your Online mailbox password, you are
prompted for your Caching mailbox password. For more information, see Section 16.2,
“Managing Mailbox Passwords,” on page 268.
2 When you are asked to restart GroupWise, click Yes.
When GroupWise restarts, you are in Caching mode.
11.1.4
Setting Caching Properties
You can set properties that determine how your caching mailbox functions.
1 In Caching mode, click Accounts > Account Options > Properties > Advanced.
2 Ensure that the IP address and port are correct.
3 To change the password, click Online Mailbox password, type the old password, type the new
password twice, then click OK.
4 Select whether to get only the subject line, get the contents of mail messages regardless of size,
or to get the contents of any messages smaller than the sizes you specify.
230
Caching and Remote Modes
This option helps you limit the size of messages you retrieve from your mailbox. Limiting the size
of messages speeds download times and preserves space; however, you might not get the
complete message.
5 Select whether to synchronize options between the caching mailbox and your online mailbox.
6 Specify whether (and when) to refresh your address books and rules.
7 Click OK.
11.1.5
Working in Caching Mode
Some GroupWise features work slightly differently in Caching mode than they do in Online mode.
 Unless the administrator has enabled External Accounts, the Accounts menu is only displayed in
Caching mode.
 In the Sent Items folder, the number in square brackets shows how many items are pending to
be sent from Caching mode. If you try to exit GroupWise while items are pending, a message
warns you that you have unsent items.
 If you change any mailbox options under Tools > Options while working in Caching mode, the
settings are transferred to your Online mailbox.
 Changes in shared folders are updated whenever you connect to the master GroupWise system.
 Changes in shared calendars are updated whenever you connect to the master GroupWise
system.
 When items are archived from your Caching mailbox, they are also removed from your Online
mailbox during the next synchronization.
 If you have a POP3 or IMAP4 account, you have the option of having the account available in
Caching mode but not in Online mode. See Section 12.4.2, “Using POP3 and IMAP4 Accounts
in Remote and Caching Modes,” on page 249.
 Subscribing to other users’ notifications is not available in Caching mode.

Updating your entire Caching Mailbox can take a lot of time and bandwidth (just like the initial
“priming” of your Caching Mailbox) and can monopolize resources in your client and at the server.
You should use this complete synchronization sparingly, such as for suspected database corruption of
your Caching Mailbox.
232
Caching and Remote Modes
Working with Library Documents in Caching Mode
If you have GroupWise Library documents in your Mailbox, marking a document as In Use prevents
others from modifying the document. If you don’t mark a document as In Use, someone can edit it
while you have the copy in your Caching Mailbox. If you then edit the document and return it to the
Master Library, your document is saved as a new version and the edits are not saved to the other
version. If you don’t plan to edit a document, don’t mark it In Use. When you exit an In Use document,
you’re asked to send the document to the Master Library and mark it as Available. If you are finished
with the document, mark it Available to allow others to edit it.
11.1.8
Opening a Different Version of a Document in Your Caching
Mailbox
1 Click a document in your Caching Mailbox.
2 Click Actions > Versions > Version List.
3 Click Remote Libraries to display the versions you previously retrieved into your Caching

5 Click Actions > Open.
11.1.9
Viewing Pending Requests
Whenever you perform an action that requires information to be sent from your Caching Mailbox to
your Online Mailbox, GroupWise creates a request that is placed in the Pending Requests list. When
you connect to your GroupWise system, all the requests are sent to your Online Mailbox. Use
Pending Requests to check for outstanding requests.
1 Click Accounts > Pending Requests.
In Caching mode, GroupWise immediately uploads send requests and other important messages. If a
Caching request hasn’t been processed yet, you can delete it by clicking the request and then clicking
Delete. Only requests that haven’t been sent to the GroupWise system and have the Waiting to be
Sent status can be deleted. If you have already sent a request to the GroupWise system, you cannot
cancel the request.

11.2
Using Remote Mode
Remote mode is familiar to GroupWise users who use Hit the Road. Similar to Caching mode, a copy
of your network mailbox (or the portion you specify), is stored on your local drive. You can retrieve
and send messages on a periodic basis with the type of connection you specify (modem, network, or
TCP/IP). If you do not want a complete copy of your network mailbox, you can restrict what is
retrieved, such as only new messages or only message subject lines.

Configuring Your Remote Connections
When you run GroupWise in Remote mode, you can connect to your Online GroupWise system
through a modem connection, a network (direct) connection, or a TCP/IP connection. When you use
Hit the Road to set up your Remote Mailbox, GroupWise creates the appropriate connections based
on how you are currently running GroupWise. You can create new connections, as well as change or
delete existing ones.
 “Connections” on page 236
 “Creating a Modem Connection” on page 237

 “Editing a Remote Connection” on page 238
 “Deleting a Remote Connection” on page 238
 “Specifying Your Remote Location” on page 238
Connections
You can switch among connection types if there are no pending requests on the connection you are
switching from. For example, if you’re retrieving and sending items with a network connection and
you disconnect before the transmission is complete, you should not switch to a modem connection to
process the requests. Complete the original requests with the original connection.
Modem Connections
When you connect with a modem connection, you dial in to your Online GroupWise system over a
phone line. You need to set up dialing information for each remote location. For example, in a hotel
you often need to dial 9 to access an outside line, but at home you don’t. Each of these situations
requires a separate remote location. For more information about setting dialing properties for each
remote location, see your Windows documentation.
TCP/IP Connections
TCP/IP connections use an IP address and port to connect to your Online GroupWise system. If you
use a toll-free Internet provider while you’re away from your office, you can avoid phone charges by
using a TCP/IP connection. In addition, you don’t need to exit an Internet connection and hang up the
phone to connect to your Online GroupWise system via a modem connection. You can use the same
Internet connection to connect to your Online GroupWise system.
Network (Direct) Connections
When you’re at the office, you can run GroupWise in Remote mode with a network connection. A
network connection is useful for quickly retrieving large amounts of information, such as your
GroupWise Address Book.
Connection Status
When you use Hit the Road to update your Remote Mailbox before leaving the office or when you
send and retrieve items remotely, the Connection Status window displays. This window lets you
monitor the information transfer between your Online GroupWise system and your Remote Mailbox.
236
Caching and Remote Modes
To display detailed connection information, use Show Log. To display the number of requests the
Online GroupWise system needs to process, use Requests. To stop the information transfer anytime,
use Disconnect.

Setting a Remote Password
To use Remote mode, you must have a password set in Online mode. When you run in Remote
Mode, you must use the same password as your Online Mailbox. For more information, see
Section 1.3, “Assigning a Password to Your Mailbox,” on page 16.
11.2.3
Understanding Remote Connection Types
When you run GroupWise in Remote mode, you can connect to your Online GroupWise system
through a modem connection, a network (direct) connection, or a TCP/IP connection. When you use
Hit the Road to set up your Remote Mailbox, GroupWise creates the appropriate connections based
on how you are currently running GroupWise. You can create new connections, as well as change or
delete existing ones.
You will most likely use Remote away from the office with a computer that has no permanent network
access. In these situations, you can use a TCP/IP connection or a modem connection to connect to
your GroupWise system. Modem connections dial into a gateway in your GroupWise system. TCP/IP
connections use unique IP (Internet Protocol) address and port information to connect to your
GroupWise system.
You can also use Remote in your office and connect to your GroupWise System via a TCP/IP
connection or a network drive mapping. These connections are useful to download large quantities of
information, such as your GroupWise Address Book.
For more information, see “Configuring Your Remote Connections” on page 236.
If your remote connection is expensive, you can save money and connection time by connecting after
peak business hours, downloading address books with a network connection prior to going on the
road, restricting the messages you download, or waiting until you have a number of requests before
connecting.
11.2.4
Understanding Remote Features
Most GroupWise features are available in Remote mode, with the exception of subscribing to other
users’ notifications and Proxy.
11.2.5
Sending Remote Requests
Each time you send and retrieve messages, move items into folders, delete items, create rules, and
so forth, the action is stored as a request. If you have made requests but exit GroupWise without
connecting to your network mailbox, your pending requests are stored until the next time you run
GroupWise; then you are prompted to complete the requests.
11.2.6
Processing Remote Requests
GroupWise automatically processes outstanding Remote requests when you run GroupWise on your
docked laptop after you return to the office. For example, you might send an item while you are away
from your office, but you don’t connect to the GroupWise system to process that request. When you
return to the office and run GroupWise, you are asked if you want to process the outstanding
requests. To see what requests still need to be processed, click Requests.

Marking a document as In Use prevents others from modifying the document. If you don’t mark a
document as In Use, someone can edit it while you have the copy in your Remote Mailbox. If you
then edit the document and return it to the Master Library, your document is saved as a new
version and the edits are not saved to the other version. If you don’t plan to edit a document,
don’t mark it In Use.
When you exit an In Use document, you are asked to send the document to the Master Library
and mark it as Available. If you are finished with the document, mark it Available to allow others
to edit it.

Filtering the GroupWise Address Book for Your Remote Mailbox
The GroupWise Address Book is usually large, because it contains information for your entire
organization. If you don’t need all the information in the GroupWise Address Book when using
GroupWise away from your office, use GroupWise Address Book Filter to retrieve only the user
addresses, resource addresses, and public groups you need from the GroupWise system.
For example, the filter statement, Dept [ ] Marketing, instructs GroupWise to retrieve all addresses
with “Marketing” in the Department column in the Address Book. This way you can contact anyone
from your Marketing department while you’re traveling.
You should also retrieve GroupWise address book information before leaving your office to save
downloading time and costs, especially if you’re planning to travel to a location where you will incur
long-distance phone charges.
1 If you’re running GroupWise in Online mode, click Tools > Hit the Road, type your Online
Mailbox password, select a connection phone number if prompted, then click OK.
or
If you’re running GroupWise in Remote mode, click Accounts > Send/Retrieve > GroupWise
Options.
2 Click GroupWise Address Book, then click Filter.
3 Click an Address Book column in the first drop-down list.
For example, click Dept to search for addresses from a specific department.
4 Click the operator drop-down list, click an operator, then type your search criteria in the box or
click a value, if provided.
For example, click [ ], then type Accounts to search for addresses from the Accounts
department. Use the operator that is most appropriate for your search. Your search criteria, such
as a person’s name or a subject, can include wildcard characters such as an asterisk (*) or a
question mark (?). Filter is not case sensitive to the criteria you type.
5 To add more filter conditions, click the last drop-down list, then click And.
6 After specifying all filter conditions, read the text beginning with “Include entries where...” as you
create your filter to understand how your filter will work.

Online Mailboxes automatically synchronize. You can turn off this synchronization by changing
the delete options in Remote Properties. See “Changing Remote Delete Options” on page 240.
Deleting Unneeded Documents from Your Remote Library
Deleting files from your Remote Library Disk Space Management does not remove them from the
Master Library. It also doesn’t remove the document references for the deleted documents. The files
are removed only from the computer where you have your Remote Mailbox, which frees up disk
space.
1 In Remote mode, click Tools > Manage Library Size.
2 Click the documents you want to delete, then click Delete.
3 When you’re finished, click Close.
If you delete an In Use document, the status of the document in the Master Library is reset to
Available the next time you connect to your Online Mailbox.
Document Reference Attachments and Remote Mode
You might receive an item with a document reference attachment when you are running in Remote
mode. When you open the attachment, the document opens your Remote Library, even if the
document in your Remote Library is an older version than the attachment. If the document does not
exist in your Remote Library, you are prompted to connect now or later to your Online Mailbox to
retrieve the document.
You can also send items with document reference attachments from Remote mode. However, if the
document does not exist in your Remote Library, any recipients who do not have sufficient rights to
the document in the Master Library or who are not using an email product that supports the
GroupWise Library do not receive a copy of the document.
In addition, if the Master Library is unavailable, recipients do not receive a copy of the document. If
any of these conditions exist, you need to attach an actual copy of the document in addition to the
document reference.

POP3 and IMAP4 Accounts

If you have multiple email accounts, you know that it’s inconvenient to change locations to look at
each account. You can add your POP3 and IMAP4 Internet mail accounts to GroupWise so that you
can read and send messages for all of your accounts from GroupWise.

 Section 12.1.2, “Understanding IMAP4 Accounts,” on page 247
12.1.1
Understanding POP3 Accounts
When you add a POP3 account, you can associate an existing folder (for example, your Mailbox
folder) with the account or you can create a new folder. When you download email from your POP3
account to GroupWise, it is typically deleted from the POP3 server. You can choose to have your
POP3 account items stored on the POP3 server. If you store items on the server, you can read those
items from more than one computer.
12.1.2
Understanding IMAP4 Accounts
When you add an IMAP4 account, the folder you see in GroupWise represents the folder on your
IMAP4 server. Your IMAP4 account items are always stored on the IMAP4 server. Any actions in the
GroupWise folder, such as creating or deleting, are also performed on the IMAP4 server. Because
your items are always stored on the IMAP4 server, you can read those items from more than one
computer.
The Find and Proxy features are not supported in IMAP4 folders.
POP3 and IMAP4 Accounts

12.2
Adding POP3 and IMAP4 Accounts to GroupWise
Before you add a POP3 or IMAP4 account to GroupWise, you need to know the type of mail server
being used (POP3 or IMAP4), your account name and password, and the name of the incoming and
outgoing mail servers. You can get this information from your Internet service provider (ISP) or
network administrator. Microsoft Secure Password Authentication is supported for accessing
Exchange servers and MSN accounts.
You can add a POP3 or IMAP4 account only if the Accounts menu is displayed. The Accounts menu
is displayed if you are in Caching mode or if your administrator allows POP and IMAP or NNTP on
your GroupWise system.
1 Click Accounts > Account Options.
2 Click Add.
3 Select the desired account type, then type an account name.
4 Provide the email address and password for the account.
If the provider is recognized, the incoming and outgoing mail server information will be provided
for you. If it is an unknown email provider, the Incoming Mail Server and Outgoing Mail Server
fields will appear, and you will need to provide this information.
5 Select whether to upload the new account to the GroupWise Mailbox, then click Next.
6 Select the folder to use for the account, or create a new folder.
7 Click Finish.
After you add a POP3 or IMAP4 account, you might also need to configure it to allow connections to
GroupWise. For example, to allow POP3/IMAP4 downloads in Gmail, see Getting started with IMAP
and POP3 (https://support.google.com/mail/troubleshooter/1668960?hl=en&ref_topic=1669040) in

RSS Feeds

RSS is a web format used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news
headlines, and podcasts. An RSS document, which is often called a feed, web feed, or channel,
contains either a summary of content from an associated website or the full text. RSS makes it
possible for you to keep up with your favorite websites in an automated manner instead of checking
them manually.

Subscribing to RSS Feeds
When you subscribe to RSS feeds, the GroupWise Feeds folder is created. It displays the RSS folder
icon in the Folder list. A list of the feeds that you are currently subscribed to is displayed under the
GroupWise Feeds folder. You can create subfolders under the GroupWise Feeds folder and move
feeds to the subfolder. When you click the subfolder, the message list displays a list of all the topics
for all the feeds under the subfolder.
How you subscribe to RSS feeds depends on your web browser. Instructions for setting up RSS
feeds from two popular browsers are provided as examples. If the RSS feed functionality of your
browser does not interact successfully with GroupWise, you can set up an RSS feed from within
GroupWise.

If your GroupWise administrator has set up libraries and enabled document management, all of your
documents are stored in a library in GroupWise, allowing you to manage all of your documents from
your Mailbox.
In GroupWise 18, the Open Document Management API (ODMA) integration is no longer supported,
but there have been no other changes or enhancements to GroupWise document management
functionality. For complete information on using the robust features offered by GroupWise document
management, see “Document Management” in the GroupWise 2012 Windows Client User Guide.

4 In the Password field, specify your password, then click OK.
16.1.2
Logging In to Your Mailbox from a Shared Workstation
If you use the same workstation for multiple people, it is highly recommended that each user have a
separate login for the workstation. When GroupWise saves the display settings for a user, they are
saved to the current user’s registry. This allows GroupWise to display the settings for the user who is
currently logged in to the workstation, so each user can have a customized view.
When a user finishes using the workstation, he or she should completely log out of the workstation.
This allows other users to log in to the system with their own GroupWise settings.
Maintaining GroupWise
267
However, there are circumstances when having a different login for each user on the workstation is
not a viable option. In these cases, there are some steps you should perform to properly set up
GroupWise.
The login screen startup option allows you to specify certain criteria when starting GroupWise.
1 Right-click the GroupWise icon on the desktop, click Properties, then click the Shortcut tab.

access your Mailbox instead of a GroupWise password. With LDAP authentication, you are required
to have a password and you cannot remove your password.
If your GroupWise administrator has disabled changing your LDAP password in GroupWise, you
might need to use a different application to change your password. Contact your GroupWise
administrator for more information.

Remembering My Password
When you are logged in to the network as yourself and have selected Remember My Password in
Security Options or during login, you are not prompted for your password on the current workstation.
Windows remembers the password.
Using the No Password Required with eDirectory Option
When you are logged in to Micro Focus eDirectory as yourself on any workstation and have selected
No password required with eDirectory in Security Options, you are not prompted for your password.
Because eDirectory has identified you, the password is not required.
Using Single Sign-On
When you are logged in to eDirectory as yourself on any workstation where Micro Focus SecureLogin
is installed and you have selected Use single sign-on in Security Options or during login, you are not
prompted for your password. Single sign-on locates your stored password. If other users log in to
GroupWise on your workstation, they should deselect this option during login. This does not turn the
option off, but ensures that the other password is not stored in place of yours.
Bypassing Your GroupWise Password
The availability of this option depends on the platform on which you run GroupWise, the options your
GroupWise administrator has set, and other products you have installed.
1 Click Tools > Options.
2 Double-click Security, then ensure that the Password tab is selected.
3 Select No password required with eDirectory.

Using Mailbox Passwords in Caching Mode
To use GroupWise in Caching mode, you must assign a password to your Online Mailbox. If you
assign a password when you’re in Caching mode, the password is synchronized back to GroupWise
the next time you connect to your Online Mailbox. When the password synchronized, it changes your
Online Mailbox and your Remote Mailbox password. For more information, see Section 11.1, “Using
Caching Mode,” on page 229.
If your GroupWise administrator has turned on LDAP authentication and has disabled changing your
LDAP password in GroupWise, you might need to use a different application to change your
password. Contact your GroupWise administrator for more information.

Using Mailbox Passwords in Remote Mode
To use Remote mode, you must assign a password to your Online Mailbox. If you assign a password
when you’re running Remote, the password is synchronized back to GroupWise the next time you
connect to your Online Mailbox. When the password is synchronized, it changes your Online Mailbox
and your Caching password. For more information, see Section 11.2, “Using Remote Mode,” on
page 234.
If your GroupWise administrator has turned on LDAP authentication and has disabled changing your
LDAP password in GroupWise, you might need to use a different application to change your

16.2.7
Using Mailbox Passwords with Proxies
Setting a password for your Mailbox does not affect a proxy’s ability to access your Mailbox. A proxy’s
ability to access your Mailbox is determined by the rights you assign him or her in your Access List.
16.3
Archiving Email
Use Archive to save mail or phone messages, appointments, reminder notes, or tasks to a
designated database on a local drive. Archiving items saves network space and keeps your Mailbox
uncluttered. It also protects items from being automatically deleted.

16.3.1
Understanding Your Archive
You can view archived items whenever you need to. You can also unarchive any archived item. When
you archive an item you have sent, you cannot track the status of that item.
The GroupWise administrator might specify that your items are archived automatically on a regular
basis. Automatic archiving occurs every time the GroupWise client is opened. Items are archived
from the mailbox the user is currently using. This means if you are in Caching Mode, items are
archived from your Caching Mailbox, and if you are in Online Mode, items are archived from your
Online Mailbox.
Maintaining GroupWise
271
Some items such as appointments might be scheduled to be archived before the actual appointment
date. When these items are archived, they are removed from the Sent Items folder but remain on
your calendar. This allows you to schedule items far in advance, without worrying about losing them
from your calendar.
When you move an item to a folder, it is not archived. Items in all folders are affected by the Cleanup
options you specify in Environment Options, and by any archiving or cleanup options your
administrator specifies.
Archived items are never deleted unless you manually delete them from your archive.
16.3.2
Specifying Where Archives Are Stored
1 Click Tools > Options.
2 Double-click Environment, then click the File Location tab.
3 Specify the location of your archive directory in the Archive directory field.
4 Click OK.
For information on how to archive items in your Mailbox, see Section 16.3, “Archiving Email,” on
page 271.
IMPORTANT: If you run GroupWise on multiple workstations, ensure that the archive location you
specify exists on only one of the workstations. After the initial creation of your archive, the archiving
process occurs only if GroupWise can access the specified location. If the archive exists on multiple
computers, the result is multiple archives, which is a situation that you want to avoid. For information
on how to remedy this problem, see Section 16.3.8, “Combining Archived Items from Multiple
Archives,” on page 274.
16.3.3
Moving an Item to the Archive
1 If you have not previously done so, specify the archive path in File Location in the Environment
dialog box. See Section 16.3.2, “Specifying Where Archives Are Stored,” on page 272.
2 In your Mailbox, select the items you want to archive.
3 Click Actions > Move to Archive.
When you archive an item you have sent, you cannot track the status of that item.
16.3.4
Archiving Items Automatically
1 Click Tools > Options.
2 Double-click Environment, then click the Cleanup tab.
3 Select Auto-archive after for the item type you want.
4 Specify the number of days after the item is delivered or completed that you want it to be
archived.
5 Click OK.
If your GroupWise administrator has specified that items are automatically archived on a regular
basis, you might not be able to change this option.
If auto-archiving is set up for items in your Mailbox, items in the Tasklist folder are also archived
based on the original date you received the item, not based on the due date you assign it.
272
Maintaining GroupWise
If you work on a computer where automatic archiving set up, it only archives items to one computer. If
you are working on a computer where the automatic archive is not available, the items are not
archived to that computer.
16.3.5
Viewing Archived Items
1 In the Main Window, click File > Open Archive.
or
Click the folder list header drop-down list (above the Folder List; it probably displays Online or
Caching to indicate what mode of GroupWise you are running in), then click Archive.
16.3.6
Unarchiving Items
1 Click File > Open Archive.
or
Click the folder list header drop-down list (above the Folder List; it probably displays Online or

2 Click the item you want to unarchive, click Actions > Move to Archive.
3 Click File > Open Archive to close the archive and return to the Main Window.
or
Click the folder list header drop-down list (above the Folder List; it displays Archive), then click
your user folder (your name) to return to the mode of GroupWise you were running previously.
Unarchived messages are returned to the folder from which they were archived. If the folder has been
deleted, GroupWise creates a new folder. If auto-archive has been configured, unarchived messages
remain in your active mailbox for 7 days before they are moved back to your archive.
16.3.7
Moving Your Archive from One Location to Another
To move your archive from one location to another location in your computer’s file system:
1 Click Tools > Options.
2 Double-click Environment, then click the File Location tab.
3 In the Archive directory field, specify the location where you want to move your archive.
If you are moving your archive to a location where a GroupWise archive currently exists or
previously existed, do not specify a directory that contains archive files. Archive files are stored
in the ofxxxarc directory, which is a directory that GroupWise automatically generates as a
subdirectory to the archive directory.
If you specify the ofxxxarc directory as your GroupWise archive directory, the result is multiple
archives, which is a situation that you want to avoid. For information on how to remedy this
problem, see Section 16.3.8, “Combining Archived Items from Multiple Archives,” on page 274.
4 Click Apply.
5 (Conditional) If you have not previously enabled archiving, you are prompted as to whether you
want to enable archiving. Click Yes.
6 (Conditional) If you are moving your archive to a directory that does not already have archive
files, you see a message asking if you want to move the contents of your archive to the new
location.

7 Ensure that this is the location where you want to move your archive, then click Yes.
8 Click OK.
16.3.8
Combining Archived Items from Multiple Archives
To combine items in multiple archives into one archive:
1 In the GroupWise client, specify the archive directory that contains the fewest archived items.
For information, see Section 16.3.2, “Specifying Where Archives Are Stored,” on page 272.
You must be on the physical computer that contains the directory where the archive exists.
2 Unarchive all the items in the archive, as described in Section 16.3.6, “Unarchiving Items,” on
page 273.
3 Specify your main archive directory.
For information, see Section 16.3.2, “Specifying Where Archives Are Stored,” on page 272.
You must be on the physical computer that contains the directory where the archive exists.
4 Archive all of the items that you want to move into your main archive, as described in
Section 16.3.3, “Moving an Item to the Archive,” on page 272.
5 Repeat Step 1 through Step 4 for any additional archives, until you have archived items only in
your main archive.
16.4
Using Mailbox Storage Size Information
Use Mailbox Storage Size Information to view your mailbox size and to manage items to regain
space. Your GroupWise administrator might set a size limit on your Mailbox. If your Mailbox size
exceeds the limit, you cannot send new items until you archive or delete some of your existing items.
You can check your Mailbox storage size at any time.

Backing Up Email
Your GroupWise administrator typically backs up your network Mailbox on a regular basis. You can
back up your local mailbox if you want to have an additional copy of your Mailbox, or if you want to
back up information that is no longer in your network Mailbox.
If the GroupWise administrator has created a restore area and has backed up the entire GroupWise
system, or if you have backed up your local Mailbox in Remote or Caching mode, you can open a
backup copy of your Mailbox to view and restore items. You need Read and Write access to the
restore area if it is on the network.
 Section 16.6.1, “Backing Up Your Mailbox,” on page 275
 Section 16.6.2, “Restoring Items from Backup,” on page 276
16.6.1
Backing Up Your Mailbox
To manually back up your local Mailbox in Remote or Caching mode:
1 Click Tools > Backup Mailbox.

16.7
Repairing Your Mailbox
Periodic mailbox maintenance keeps GroupWise running smoothly. Occasionally, mailbox
maintenance is required to resolve a problem with a mailbox or other GroupWise database.
You can perform the following mailbox maintenance actions by using the Repair Mailbox feature:
 Section 16.7.1, “Understanding Mailbox Maintenance,” on page 276
 Section 16.7.2, “Deciding Whether Your Mailbox Needs Repair,” on page 277
 Section 16.7.3, “Installing GroupWise Check,” on page 277
 Section 16.7.4, “Analyzing and Fixing Databases,” on page 278
 Section 16.7.5, “Rebuilding the Mailbox Structure,” on page 279
16.7.1
Understanding Mailbox Maintenance
The mailbox maintenance actions are performed on the mailbox to which you are currently
connected, such as the Caching mailbox, the Remote mailbox, or the Archive. The Repair Mailbox
function is only available in the menu if you are in Caching, Remote, or Archive mode.
In Online mode, your GroupWise Mailbox resides in the post office to which you belong and
maintenance of your Online Mailbox is performed by your GroupWise administrator. In other modes,
you can perform some of your own maintenance, depending on which GroupWise client features you
are using.
Archive: When you archive GroupWise items, they are stored at the location you have specified
using Tools > Options > Environment > File Location. You must open your archive using File > Open
Archive in order to repair your archive.
276
Maintaining GroupWise
Caching Mailbox: If you are using Caching mode, your Caching Mailbox is stored at the location you
specified when you set up your Caching Mailbox. You must be in Caching mode in order to repair
your Caching Mailbox.
Remote Mailbox: If you are using Remote mode, your Remote Mailbox is stored in whatever location
you specified when you used the Hit the Road feature to create your Remote Mailbox. You must be in
Remote mode in order to repair your Remote Mailbox.
Three databases are associated with each of these mailbox locations:
User Database: Your user database contains your client options settings, pointers to messages,
personal groups, personal address books, and rules.
Message Database: Your message database contains your GroupWise items.
Document Database: Your document database contains any documents you are accessing from a
GroupWise Library.
When you are repairing a mailbox, you can choose which databases to repair, depending on the type
of problem the mailbox is experiencing.
16.7.2
Deciding Whether Your Mailbox Needs Repair
It is possible for your GroupWise Mailbox or other GroupWise databases to become corrupt, for a
variety of reasons. If this occurs, GroupWise often can no longer read items in your Mailbox. Running
Repair Mailbox can fix most of these problems. For information on how to repair your mailbox, see
Section 16.7.4, “Analyzing and Fixing Databases,” on page 278 and Section 16.7.5, “Rebuilding the
Mailbox Structure,” on page 279.
16.7.3
Installing GroupWise Check
Depending on how GroupWise Check is installed, you can have a Repair Mailbox item on the Tools
menu that enables you to run GWCheck from the client. If the GWCheck utility is available to you, you
can perform database maintenance on your Remote, Caching, and archive mailboxes.
In order for the Repair Mailbox item to display on the Tools menu, the following files must be installed
in the GroupWise directory. By default, this is C:\Program Files(x86)\Novell\GroupWise.
 gwcheck.exe
 gwchkxx.dll (Replace xx with your language code)
 gwchkxx.chm (Replace xx with your language code)
The GroupWise administrator can install these files by using SetupIP to install your GroupWise client,
and selecting to install and enable GWCheck. The default is for SetupIP to install GWCheck, but not
enable it.
Maintaining GroupWise
277
If you do not see the Repair Mailbox option in the Tools menu:
1 Copy the files listed above from the GWCheck directory (\Novell\GroupWise\gwcheck) to the
main GroupWise directory (\Novell\GroupWise).
16.7.4
Analyzing and Fixing Databases
The Analyze/Fix Databases action of GroupWise Mailbox Maintenance can check your mailbox for
various types of problems and can repair problems that it detects.
To check and optionally repair your Mailbox:
1 Click Tools > Repair Mailbox, then click Yes.
2 From the Action drop-down list, select Analyze/Fix Databases.
3 Select from the following Analyze/Fix Databases options as needed:
Structure: The structure check verifies the structural integrity of the mailbox and reports the
amount of space that could be recovered if the mailbox is rebuilt.
Index Check: If you select Structure, you can also select Index Check. You should perform an
index check if you try to open a message and get a read error, or if someone sends you a
message that does not appear in your mailbox, even though the sender sees a Delivered status
for the message. Depending on the size of your mailbox, an index check can be timeconsuming.
Contents: A contents check verifies references to other items. For example, in your user
database, a contents check verifies that all messages listed in your mailbox actually exist in your
message database. In your message database, a contents check verifies that all attachments to
messages in your mailbox actually exist in the attachment directories. A contents check also
ensures that your rules and personal groups are valid.
Collect Statistics: If you select Contents, you can also collect statistics during the contents
check. The statistics include the number of messages and appointments in your mailbox, the
amount of space consumed by your mailbox, and so on.
4 Select Fix Problems to repair your mailbox.
If you deselect Fix Problems, problems with your mailbox are reported but not fixed.
5 On the Databases tab, select one or more databases to analyze and optionally fix.
For information about the databases, see Section 16.7.1, “Understanding Mailbox Maintenance,”
on page 276.
On the Logging tab, the Log File field shows that, by default, a file named gwchk32.log is
created in the GroupWise client installation directory.
6 (Optional) Specify a different file name and location.
You can also select Verbose Logging to record more detailed information during the analyze/fix
process.
7 Click Run to start the Analyze/Fix Database option.
A progress log displays during the analyze/fix process.
You can click Stop at any time to stop the analyze/fix process. An error code is displayed, but it
simply indicates that the process has been stopped.
You can click Statistics at any time during the analyze/fix process to add interim statistical
information to the log, such as how many problems have been identified and fixed so far in the
process.
278
Maintaining GroupWise
8 Click Close, then click OK when the analyze/fix process is complete.
9 Click Close to return to your GroupWise Mailbox.
16.7.5
Rebuilding the Mailbox Structure
The Structural Rebuild action of GroupWise Mailbox Maintenance forces a structural rebuild of a
database in your Mailbox regardless of whether problems with the database have been detected
through using the Analyze/Fix Databases action. A structural rebuild ensures that the various record
containers in the database are correctly organized so that data can be successfully retrieved from
them by the GroupWise client.
To perform a structural rebuild on your Mailbox:
1 Click Tools > Repair Mailbox, then click Yes.
2 From the Actions drop-down list, select Structural Rebuild.
3 On the Databases tab, select one or more databases to rebuild.
For information about the databases, see Section 16.7.1, “Understanding Mailbox Maintenance,”
on page 276.
4 On the Logging tab, the Log File field shows that, by default, a file named gwchk32.log is
created in the GroupWise client installation directory.
You can specify a different file name and location. You can also select Verbose Logging to
record more detailed information during the structural rebuild.
5 Click Run to start the structural rebuild.
A progress log displays during the structural rebuild.
You can click Stop at any time to stop the rebuild. An error code is displayed, but it simply
indicates that the process has been stopped.
You can click Statistics at any time during the rebuild to add interim statistical information to the
log, such as how many problems have been corrected so far in the structural rebuild process.
6 Click Close, then click OK when the structural rebuild is complete.
7 Click Close to return to your GroupWise mailbox.
16.8
Managing Trash
All deleted mail and phone messages, appointments, tasks, documents, and reminder notes are
stored in the Trash. Items in the Trash can be viewed, opened, or returned to your Mailbox until the
Trash is emptied. (Emptying the Trash removes items in the Trash from the system.)
You can empty your entire Trash, or empty only selected items. Items in the Trash are emptied
according to the days entered in the Cleanup tab in Environment Options, or you can empty the Trash
manually. The GroupWise administrator can specify that your Trash is emptied automatically on a
regular basis.

E.1
Configuring JAWS for GroupWise
In order for Job Access with Speech (JAWS) to function properly with GroupWise, you need to copy
the JAWS files from the downloaded GroupWise 18 client software image available from Novell
Downloads (http://download.novell.com).
To install the GroupWise JAWS files for JAWS 5.x and earlier:
1 Browse to the \client\jaws\settings directory in the GroupWise 18 client software image.
2 Copy all the files to the C:\jawsdir\settings\enu directory. Replace jawsdir with the
directory that JAWS is installed in.
To install the GroupWise JAWS files for JAWS 6.x or later:
1 Browse to the \client\jaws\settings directory in the GroupWise 18 client software image.
2 Copy all the files to the C:\Documents and Settings\user_name\Application
Data\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\version\Settings\enu directory for a single user. Replace
user_name with the name of the person you are installing the JAWS files for, and replace
version with the version of JAWS that is installed.
or
Copy all the files to the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application
Data\Freedom Scientific\JAWS\version\Settings\enu directory for all users. Replace
version with the version of JAWS that is installed.
If you are installing the GroupWise JAWS files to a Windows XP operating system, you must copy two
additional files for JAWS to function properly with GroupWise.
1 Browse to the \jawsdir\winxp directory in the GroupWise 18 client software image. Replace
jawsdir with the directory that JAWS is installed in.
2 Copy all the files to the C:\groupwisedir directory. Replace groupwisedir with the GroupWise
installation directory.
By default, the GroupWise installation directory is located at C:\Program
Files\Novell\GroupWise.
If you need to make changes to the GroupWise JAWS source files, they are located in the GroupWise
18 client software image. The GroupWise JAWS source files are located at \client\jaws\src.
