Novell GroupWise Messenger 2.0.4


A new switch has been added to the GroupWise messenger that allows an initial status to be set upon login.


The name of the switch is /initstatus-[offline|away|busy]. Any other value will use the default
of online.

Add this to your messenger shortcut after the Target:
"C:\Novell\Messenger\NMCL32.exe /initstatus-busy"

This has been included in the Novell GroupWise Messenger 2.0.4 client and newer versions.
