C081: Missing BLOB file on add/modify   


The GroupWise engine throws this error if while attempting to open an attachment, its associated "blob" file is missing from the postoffice/offiles directory.  The error will appear when accessing the attachment via the GroupWise client or any other method such as SOAP.  Retain will store all available parts of the message and then will create place holder files for the missing attachments.
