What are my options for getting a deleted email from my Reload server?


Reload has two modes for restoring email from a GroupWise post office backup: 1.) Restore Mode and 2.) Access Mode. 

In most circumstances, Restore Mode is best mode for the following reasons:

  • Users do not have to archive items which is helpfult when the Archive feature in GroupWise has been disabled
  • The user experience to getting items back from a Reload backup is much more simpler using Restore Mode
  • For more information on Restore Mode, see the following article:

Reload Setup for GroupWise Restore Area Management

Access Mode leverages the GroupWise archive feature and is typically best suited for:

  • Restoring an entire mailbox and many mailbox items.
  • Restoring personal users address books

For more information on Access Mode, which uses GroupWise's archive feature see the following article:
