Problem

GroupWise users may be proxy users for a manager, with the right to vieuw the mail from their manager.

Suppose the manager would like the users to scan e-mails and mark them as Read Later, so the manager knows to look at the unread items. Normally the proxy users would right-click the mail and select Read Later. However, this option is not available for users who are in the mailbox of the manager, although the manager can still use this option.

Solution

Because the manager only gave the user "read" rights to the mail items, the users can't select the option: Read Later. The manager must also grant the users "write" permissions.

Once this is done, the proxy users can select the Read Later option when they are in the manager's mailbox.
