Novell GroupWise 8 Support Pack 2 Hot Patch 3


When multiple messages are copied from the Groupwise Client version 802 HP3 to a folder on the workstation,it stops when duplicate subjects are encountered.
Example : If you drag 4 messages with subject 'Vibe 3.2 Hot Patch 3 available','SR Update','Incident 1603822' and 'Incident 1603822.'You will see that only 3 are dropped.

Message with subject 'Incident 1603822' is pasted only once and the file is named as 'Incident 1603822_1'.

While it works fine when only a single mail is dragged and dropped to a folder.

Same operation performed on GroupWise 7 Support Pack 4 client results in application error and closes GroupWise.
