Situation

Variables in the Archive directory are not interpreted correctly

Steps to duplicate:

1.Access the GroupWise Administration Console, open the properties of the domain object and go to Client Options. On the Environment-File Location tab, set the Archive Directory to c:\%homepath%\archive

2.Log in to the GroupWise client and archive a message. Notice that the GroupWise client will actually create the c:\%homepath%\archive directory instead of creating the archive directory under the directory that is associated with the %homepath% variable.

Resolution

This is working as designed.  GroupWise does not have the ability to read environment variables that are set in Windows.
