Environment

Novell GroupWise 8 Support Pack 2 Hot Patch 1
Novell GroupWise 8 Support Pack 2 Hot Patch 2
Novell GroupWise 8 Support Pack 2 Hot Patch 3

Situation

If there is a mailto link in an email message, clicking on it in the Macintosh client does nothing at all.  If you click on a mailto link on a webpage, it will open GroupWise if it is closed but not open a new message window and fill in the To: field

Resolution

This will be fixed in the upcoming GroupWise 8.0.2 HP4 Macintosh client

Additional Information

To set GroupWise as the default mail client, ope the Mail application from the Applications folder.  Click on Mail -> Preferences.  Change the Default email reader from Mail (5.0) to GroupWise.
