By default, the Mobility Pack Installation program configures your Synchronizer system to use LDAP (network) passwords when mobile devices connect to GroupWise mailboxes. After installation, you can configure the Mobility Connector to use GroupWise mailbox passwords instead.
GroupWise authentication can be more intuitive for users. It is especially convenient when users’ LDAP passwords are set to expire regularly, which requires reconfiguration of mobile devices each time LDAP passwords expire. GroupWise passwords do not expire. Device reconfiguration becomes necessary only when users manually change their own GroupWise passwords.
