  • All items in a shared folder are downloaded to the Caching mailboxes of users with whom the folder is shared.
  • When items are archived from a mailbox that belongs to a resource and then unarchived, they are placed in the Online mailbox of the resource.
  • If you reschedule an appointment addressed to a group by dragging and dropping it in your Calendar, the appointment is rescheduled for members of the group.

  • When using Auto-Accept and Auto-Delete rules to schedule appointments for resources, you can resend a modified appointment and it is successfully modified in the resource's calendar.
  • When editing the actions for a rule that includes adding an attachment, editing the file multiple times does not cause the file to be attached multiple times.
  • If you proxy to another user and then return to your own mailbox, the Mailbox Size field correctly displays the size of your mailbox, not the size of the mailbox you proxied into.
  • If you have two users with the same username and last name but located in different post offices, you can successfully proxy to both users by selecting them from the Address Book without receiving a D102 Ambiguous User error.
  • The Junk Mail Handling feature identifies messages from recipients with usernames starting with a percent sign (%) as junk mail and places them in the Junk Mail folder.

In addition, the DelDupFolders Support option now removes any existing Sent Items.dup1 folders that might have been created in users' mailboxes in the past.
Internet Agent Fixes
  • When processing messages, the Internet Agent uses Quoted Printable encoding, so that it puts in soft returns rather than hard returns when wrapping text.
