Novell GroupWise 7
Novell GroupWise Gateway - Gateway for MS Exchange (GWEX)


There are several text instances where a backslash character is a part of a text in a message body of a HTML mails. After such a mail passes a GWEX, text behind the backlash is truncated or malformed.
This applies for a HTML mail sent from GroupWise and also from Exchange site.
Forward slash in a text does not cause problems.
Plain text formatted mails have no problems with a backslash characters.


Download the latest available gateway build. Shall you still have problems, please, contact technical support.
