The Post Office Agent (POA) now supports connections to IMAP (Internet Messaging Application Protocol) clients.
You can use SSL to secure connections between the POA and GroupWise clients or IMAP e-mail clients. You can disable, enable, or require (force) SSL connections for GroupWise clients either inside or outside your firewall and for IMAP e-mail clients that access the post office.
For setup instructions, see "Enhancing Post Office Security with SSL Connections to the POA" in "Post Office Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
Initial LDAP server pooling capabilities, to facilitate robust LDAP authentication for GroupWise users, were introduced in GroupWise 6 Support Pack 2. In GroupWise 6.5, LDAP server information is entered into ConsoleOne once per LDAP server (Tools menu > GroupWise System Operations > LDAP Servers > Add). Additional LDAP information can be configured specifically for each post office (Post Office object > Security page).
For setup instructions, see "Providing LDAP Authentication for GroupWise Users" in "Post Office Agent" in the GroupWise 6.5 Administration Guide.
You can specify the QuickFinderTM Interval and Start QuickFinder Indexing settings in terms of hours and minutes, instead of just hours.
