I know that I am not currently one of the many. I have the unfortunate privilege of administering a very old system that has been running Novel GroupWise for a very long time. We have plans to migrate to Exchange eventually, but for now, I am stuck. Come on lady luck, just one more year maybe!!!
For those of us that have this problem, we need more GroupWise integration with the Mail Archiver. Currently, it can really only be used as a backup. We need the ability to actually use it for Retention purposes as well as have the folder structure that our users have set up be synced. I'm not actually sure why this can't work since it grabs all the email via IMAP at this point anyway. IMAP pulls folders just fine...
I actually had intended to use this system as a way to help ease our migration to Exchange by simply cutting off service to GroupWise and turning on Exchange one day. The Mail Archive would have been where they went to get all of their old email. Easy huh? Well, not in the short term as these features are not available.
I would really like the ability to do the following (all 3 are equally important and will hopefully be implemented at the same time):
1. Turn on Email Retention for GroupWise so that no emails can be deleted by the user until the system has backed them up.
2. Sync users folders to the Archive so that they may browse their email in the same way they do on their system.
3. Use SSL for SOAP connections to the GroupWise POA.
Please let me know if anyone has questions. I'd be happy to help.
