Novell GroupWise 2012


GroupWise user sends a calendar appointment to an external, non-GroupWise user. The external recipient replies to the invite, and the reply is never delivered.


  1. In ConsoleOne, open the GWIA properties page
  2. Click on the POP3/IMAP4 tab and select "Settings"
  3. In the POP3 box, uncheck "Enable intruder detection"


This is caused by a quirky bit of behavior in the PO; if intruder detection is turned on,
the post office will think that the incoming message is not being granted access rights.
Here is a note from the engineer who fixed the bug, as it appears in the bug report:

On original sender`s GWIA you will see: 10:30:40 F37A MSG 83 Processing inbound message: /media/nss/DATA/926811/wpgate/newgwia/receive/e9fe5215.000 10:30:40 F37A MSG 83 Sender: 10:30:40 F37A MSG 83 Recipient: 10:30:40 F37A Successful login with client/server access: 10:30:49 F37A MSG 83 Queuing to MTA and this has corresponding lines in his POA: 10:30:40 EFD5 C/S Login Linux ::GW Id=newuser :: 10:30:40 EFD5 Error: Attempt to do client/server actions with no access [D04F] User:newuser (newuser) It is enough to remove "Intruder Detection" on POP3 protocol - note, this protocol does not even need to be enabled ! Then it works: 10:29:20 EFD5 C/S Login Linux ::GW Id=newuser :: 10:29:20 EFD5 Processing update: user status record (newuser) 10:29:20 EFD5 Processing update: user status record (newuser)

Additional Information

This is scheduled to be resolved in the Windemere release. The solution provided here is a workaround until the underlying defect is fixed.
