Novell GroupWise 6.5
Novell GroupWise 32 bit Client
Auto-archive mails / calendar items enabled in a user mailbox.


Starting GroupWise client in Online mode triggers auto-archive process that archives all mails regardless their age.


When using GroupWise 65 client version, avoid using auto-archive feature if facing the problem. Due to a stage of GroupWise 65 development support, this problem is not going to be resolved within this version. It is recommended to upgrade to GroupWise 7.
