Increasing the Font Size for Internal GroupWise Messages

Problem

The default print size may be too small for internally sent e-mails in GroupWise. In my findings, e-mails from external systems printed OK, and if you increased your GroupWise font size, the recipient could print them a reasonable size.

Solution

I made a registry file to roll to users (see the example below). It sets the font size to Arial 11 for the GroupWise client 7.01 (untested on others), and then all e-mails authored with these new settings printed OK. Of course, you can customize this file for your own preferences.

Example

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Novell\GroupWise\Client\Setup]
"FirstRun"=dword:00000000
"Custom Colors"=hex:ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,\
  00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,\
  ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00
"ReplyIncludeText"=dword:00000001
"File Attach DoubleClick"=dword:00000001
"LaunchNotifyAtStartup"=dword:00000000
"Outbox DoubleClick"=dword:00000001
"Message Attach DoubleClick"=dword:00000000
".DefaultSaveFormat"=dword:00000001
".AttachmentPromptSize"=dword:ffffffff
"DoNotCreateHTMLMessages"=dword:00000001
"DoNotViewHTMLMessages"=dword:00000001
"DoNotViewBlankHTMLMessages"=dword:00000000
"DiscussReplyIncludeText"=dword:00000000
"Show Home Folder Help"=dword:00000001
"DefaultsForRead"=dword:00000000
"PlainTextReadFontName"="Arial"
"PlainTextReadFontSize"=dword:0000000b
"PlainTextComposeFontName"="Arial"
"PlainTextComposeFontSize"=dword:0000000b

Note: This solution was tested with Windows 2000/XP and GroupWise 7.01.
