Novell GroupWise 7
Outlook Connector


In Outlook using the Outlook connector you are able to share the inbox but not able to share or unshare in the GroupWise 7 client.

Replying to a mail in the GroupWise client shows different reply options.

Once the Mailbox (Inbox) folder has been shared in the Outlook client the GroupWise client changes it's behaviour on replies, as it would for any other Shared Folder or NNTP folder.

The solution is to log into the GroupWise mailbox with the Outlook connector and unshare the inbox. Right click the Inbox folder and go to Properties | Sharing and remove any sharees. If mailbox access is required grant proxy rights through the GroupWise client instead.
