The GroupWise 2012 Message Transfer Agent (MTA) includes no changes from the previous release.
The GroupWise 2012 Post Office Agent (POA) supports the WebAccess Application as a SOAP client, eliminating the need for the WebAccess Agent.
See the following sections of the GroupWise 2012 Administration Guide for configuration details:
The GroupWise 2012 POA can be configured to use the newly independent Document Viewer Agent (DVA) to convert attached documents into HTML format for indexing, instead of the Document Converter Agent (DCA) that is integrated into the POA.
The GroupWise 2012 POA maintains a symbolic link to a file named poa.currentlog, where poa is the name of the POA eDirectory object file. This link points to the current POA log file, regardless of the POA log file name, which includes the log file creation date and an incrementing extension for multiple log files created on the same date. This facilitates monitoring the current POA log file using the tail command.
In the GroupWise 2012 POA Web console, the POA displays thread IDs, so that you can track the activity of specific threads through one or more POA log files.
The Document Viewer Agent (DVA) that was previously part of WebAccess is now an independent agent, so that its capabilities can be used by the POA as well as by WebAccess.
You can set up multiple DVAs to provide improved responsiveness for WebAccess users.
The DVA can be installed along with the POA, or it can be installed separately.
When the GroupWise 2012 Internet Agent (GWIA) is configured to use a relay server and an outbound message is undeliverable, the GWIA transfers the undeliverable message received from the relay server into the sender’s GroupWise mailbox. This improved functionality makes undeliverable status more readily available to GroupWise users, as opposed to needing to check the properties of the sent item to see whether it has been delivered.
To simplify WebAccess administration, the WebAccess Agent has been eliminated in GroupWise 2012. The WebAccess Application now communicates directly with the Post Office Agent.
GroupWise WebAccess is no longer configured in ConsoleOne. Instead, it is configured in the webacc.cfg file.
