Easily report, sort, and trend on user's email statistics, mailbox sizes, and space taken by attachments

Much of our total GroupWise storage is due to attachments that are left in users' mail boxes. Many of these attachments are dated and can be buried in a user's Cabinet folder for reference, or still exist as Sent or Trashed item. We can significantly reduce our GroupWise storage space without resorting to global policies to delete or archive messages if we could identify these messages with attachments for the users, and provide them with a report of the messages with attachments and request that they "clean house".

Though the GWCheck program provided by GroupWise does give the ability to report on mailbox statistics, and find this information, the resulting log does not lend itself to be imported into a spreadsheet or database for reporting purposes.

The GWAttachmentStats.exe utility parses out a GWCheck report generated to report attachment statistics.
