Current version: GroupWise 5.5

Capture Sender's Address

If you're looking for the easiest way to save an address from an incoming e-mail, check out this free C3PO called Capture Sender's Address. It will capture the sender's address and allow you to rename the address, select which addressbook to save to, and even give you the option of creating a new addressbook on the fly.

This was written in response to user questions, such as "Why can't GroupWise capture e-mail addresses like Eudora/Outlook, etc.?" After explaining Frequent Contacts, there would be a pause- "..Yeah, but why can't it capture addresses like...?"

Capture Sender's Address C3PO puts a toolbar button on Main/message window.

Print Normal

This was created to work around the Enhancement Pack client's problem of printing html messages in a very small font. It basically forces the print through the 'normal' SCC viewer instead of the IE rendering engine. Adds a button to the toolbar.

Export Calendar to HTML

Exports GroupWise Calendar information to an HTML file, for publishing on a web page, e-mailing to folks without GroupWise, etc.

Will Export in 3 formats - List, Table or Month. Options to include/exclude Posted(personal) and Private appts. Can customize the look of output by using HTML templates or 'shells'. c3po for menu items & buttonbar, stand-alone object API app to do the work.

Also have a web-based version of this that runs as an ISAPI dll on a windows web server. Returns dynamic calendar information in a web page. Users can publish calendar to the web by giving proxy access.
