Choose Novell GroupWise from the drop down list.
Put in the IP address or DNS name of your GroupWise mail server. Put in the username that you will be using for authentication. Choose the desire security, however, in order to use a secure connection, your SOAP interface must first be setup to use SSL. Leave the Authentication Type as Password and if you don't want to be prompted for your password, check the Remember password option.
The default interval for checking email is 10 minutes. In this example I am going to change it so that it checks for new mail more often. I also prefer to have all of the other options checked. Especially the option to Automatically synchronize account locally. Put in the SOAP port. **Attention ** The SOAP interface must be setup on the server side before you can use it though the client. It is not setup by default on a GroupWise Server. If you choose to use a secure connection in step 4, then make sure that you use the appropriate port here.
Either give your account a name or accept the default. Then click Forward to continue.
