Using Remote Mode

Remote mode is familiar to GroupWise® users on the road. Similar to Caching mode, a copy of your network mailbox, or the portion of the mailbox you specify, is stored on your local drive. You can retrieve and send messages on a periodic basis with the type of connection you specify (modem, network, or TCP/IP). If you do not want a complete copy of your network mailbox, you can restrict what is retrieved, such as only new messages or only message subject lines.

For more information about Caching mode, see Using Caching Mode.

To use Remote mode, the client installation must be a standard installation, not a workstation installation.
