Deleting is so cathartic. There’s nothing like the feeling of looking at a screen full of files and sending every jack-last one of them to the dumpster. GroupWise facilitates this kind of mass purging. Sometimes you have a folder full of junk. It’s not that the folder is junk, but it’s somehow filled itself up with garbage (you, of course, had nothing to do with it). Try this: Right-click the offending folder, then click Delete. Select Items Only (so as to protect the innocent folder), then click OK. Wham! GroupWise empties the folder of trash, and the folder is preserved, ready to be filled with important stuff. This doesn’t happen often, but when it does, wow, what a feeling.
