Problem: At the site I work at, staff wanted a global address book, filled with distribution lists relevant to them. As groupwise 6 doesn't support global address books (other than the system book) it became a small problem.
Create a global shared address book:
- Create a dummy user. In my setup I used the name of the site, split into first and last name fields.
- Create an address book, (named what you want the other users to see) and fill it full of the distribution lists / groups / users relevant to that address book.
- The final step is to share that address book with all of the relevant staff, that way you have a global address book, that updates for all users with only a few clicks.
