A few aspects of GroupWise functionality are affected by the language in use by the POA running for the post office to which users belong. The POA returns certain text in the language in which it is running, not the language in use on users’ workstations.
The status information (Delivered, Opened, an so on) displayed in the Properties page of items
The text of return notification mail receipts (if the user has enabled this type of notification)
The sort order in the Address Book
In some circumstances, these issues can be resolved by grouping users who speak the same language into the same post office and then installing the POA in the same language that the users are using. For more information, see Section 11.0, Creating a New Post Office.
At present, the POA is available in fewer languages than the GroupWise client, so this solution helps only those client users who are somewhat familiar with the language in use by the POA. For more information, see Section 7.0, Multilingual GroupWise Systems.
