User has received shared folders


In the list of folders you can select under notify options from which a notify should pop-up when receiving a new mail arrives, it is not possible to select shared folders. Under GroupWise 7 this was working.


This is working as it should be. With GroupWise 7 it was possible to select a shared folder, but the user will never receive a notification from this shared folder.
