Novell GroupWise 8 Support Pack 2 Hot Patch 2


When searching for a sub-string from the GroupWise Tools - Find Does not find the mails, Since it requires full string words, or letters.

When searching for "Build" in the GroupWise client, it does not show the mails with the words "Building" or "Builder" but finds the mails with only the word "Build".


Use * to match sub-strings.  Using comp* will find computer in a search, instead of just finding comp.
