We've had a number of people fall into this trap, so we thought we'd give you a heads up. Sometimes people find that appointments they send will appear twice on their calendars.

The New WebAccess: It's, Well, Better. And New. (feature)
"To the Web" is the battle cry of thousands of weary IS&T support Engineers.

GroupWise@Novell (feature)
Of all of the beigepapers that I've been assigned to write, this is the one that I've been dreading. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't appreciate GroupWise as the "fully integrated, easy-to-use messaging system that offers a wide range of powerful communication and collaboration capabilities?" that it is. But it's just so darn big that I can't get my hands around it.

Configuring GroupWise with NetWare Cluster Services (feature)
Clustering is more than what people do whilst playing Twister or when they're cold. Or whatever. Clustering is a big deal when you're looking for the best configuration for your networking software.

PDAs and GroupWise: Taking It On the Road (feature)
Whoever said "you can't take it with you when you go" has never used a PDA.

Easy IP Address Assignment (trench)
I have many small clients that do not host their own internal DNS server but would like to use the GroupWise client feature that allows the client to "look up" its POA via a DNS lookup. This is is a great feature that makes it easy to move post offices or users around to other servers but not have to touch their desktops or give them multiple-step instructions for entering the new IP address for the POA.

8 Jul 1999
Using Multiple Mailboxes (tip)
Here's something we learned the hard way around here. Some users keep a dummy mailbox around for whatever reason. We keep one around for Cool Solutions, then we let writers, editors, developers, and the like proxy into the GWMAG user to work in the mailbox. Why? To retain personal anonymity, sanity, and cleanliness.

Breaking the 25 Address Limit In WebAccess (tip)
Do you have more than 25 GroupWise users? If the answer is "no," then you probably haven't had anyone complain that the WebAccess client displays only 25 addresses at a time. But most GroupWise systems do have more than 25 users, so you may have heard that complaint.

10 Jun 1999
See What You Want, When You Want It (tip)

Stopping the Shared Folder Madness (tip)
You probably know that transferring ownership of shared folders is well nigh impossible without kludgy workarounds. Well, here's how you can prevent the mess from happening in the first place: Don't have individuals share important folders from their personal mailboxes.

4 Jun 1999
Transfer Ownership of Shared Folders (sort of) (tip)
You've probably all been there: You've set up a VISF (very important shared folder), and you've got lots of VIS (very important stuff) in there. The trouble starts when the owner of the shared folder decides that the grass is greener at the company across the street.

Teach Spell Checker New Tricks (tip)
Some say you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Spell checkers have been around a long time as loyal, faithful companions to those of us who can't spell (or type) perfectly. To put it bluntly, they keep us from embarrassing ourselves. Sometimes, though, we wish our spell checker had some slightly different habits. If something is bugging you about the GroupWise spell checker, you may be able to change it. Here are some of our favorite adjustments.

Return Notification Keeps You "In the Know" (tip)
You've scheduled a very important meeting with some very important people. To your dismay, the hour of the meeting arrives and the key player (besides yourself, of course!) does not.

Em Dash: A Sometimes Slippery Character In GroupWise (tip)
If our very small in-house survey of em dash functionality in GroupWise is any indicator, about half of you will have no clue what we're talking about here. The other half of you will loudly exclaim, "Ah, hah! So that's what's been going on! It's been driving me crazy!" (For those of you who have seen the little critters without knowing what to call them, an em dash is an extra-long dash.)

4 Jun 1999
Who Has Trash Duty? (tip)
Teenagers and spouses all hate to be reminded that they have trash duty. They grumble and mutter, but usually they follow through and get the trash can out to the curb. But who has trash duty in GroupWise? And what if you notice that your Trash hasn't been emptied for a very long time?

4 Jun 1999
Print Message Headers. Or Not. (tip)

Shared Code and the 16-bit Client (tip)
You know how when two people get divorced, sometimes he gets the tv and she gets the remote; she gets the sofa, he gets the cushions; he gets the comforter, she gets the duvet? It's kind of a bummer because all the stuff they once shared doesn't work so great once it's been neatly divided into two separate piles. Unfortunately, companies in our society aren't immune from divorce either...and it's even messier, if possible, then when people do it.

3 Jun 1999
A 16-bit Backround (tip)
Let's start with what the 16-bit Client can do. For one, it can run under Windows 3.1 as well as Windows 95 and Windows NT 3.51 and 4.0. So if you want to move to GW 5.x, but your office has a mix of operating systems, 16-bit allows 3.1 users join in the GW 5.x party without having to pay the cover charge (for Win95).

Keep Your Hands Where They Belong: On the Keyboard (feature)
It's time all you DOS diehards fessed up; the GUI revolution was an incredible success. Computing has never been this easy. Whether or not you think Macintosh is way better than Windows, admit it, GUI is better than, well, not GUI. On the other hand, the old way had one thing going for it: speed. Once you learned the secret handshakes required, you could do an entire day's work without ever taking your hands off the keyboard. And repetitive motion injury concerns aside, isn't that really where your hands belong?

In this issue we'll share with you how Linda uses GroupWise to run the largest training and educational programs in the state of Victoria (Australia, that is).

And in the future, as you the readers respond to the clarion call for feedback, we'll continue to periodically publish articles that give detailed descriptions of how users use GroupWise. Because you asked for it.

Novell Connecting Points (feature)
Imagine a network constructed in a space of four days and populated overnight with 250,000 users. Imagine this same network delivering a messaging system that would send more than 5,600,000 messages in the space of five days. Impossible? If you attended COMDEX Fall '97 in Las Vegas, Nevada, you probably used this network and GroupWise to keep in touch with other conference attendees and people back at your office.

So You Want To Be Notified? (tip)
Notify is better than a clerk who runs around your office delivering mail. He also lets you know when you are scheduled for a meeting. Great guy! But if you used GroupWise 4.1, you'll notice that your clerk now has a new face. Notify 4.1, we were told, was a bit too friendly.

Rules Solutions (feature)
So you've heard about GroupWise rules, but aside from the little sample one you created in training, you haven't really used them for anything. Maybe you think they're for other people: the kind who can successfully program their VCR to tape Seinfeld without any commercials. Maybe you think they are an unnecessary luxury, like a 3.8 liter engine with platinum-tipped plugs. Maybe you just (be honest) forgot about them altogether, and wonder, uneasily, what you've been doing the hard way that you could have been doing with rules. Well, here's a perfect chance to get on the train. Here are four interesting problems you've sent in, all of which can be solved using Rules, Find, and other assorted power tools, in creative ways.

Scheduling Meetings Without Ever Leaving Your Desk (tip)
