GroupWise Notify tries to find the post office when you are not connected to a network (laptops).


I put a shortcut in the Startup folder which starts a batch file that checks the computers connection to the network and starts Notify only if the network is present.

example: batch file
@echo off
if exist z:\win32\nwadmn32.exe goto notify
start c:\novell\groupwise\notify.exe
