Several e-mail enhancements have been made to the GroupWise 8 Windows client. Some of the key improvements include:
Auto Save: Every 30 seconds GroupWise automatically saves a copy of the item you are composing. This is helpful if GroupWise stops unexpectedly. When GroupWise is restarted, you are prompted with recovery options for the items. See Understanding Auto-Save.
Third-Party Composers/Viewers: You can now use third-party tools to compose and view your messages. You can use Microsoft Word and OpenOffice.org to compose your messages, and several other viewers to view your messages in their native format. See Selecting a Text Editor and Setting the Default Viewer.
Editing an Attachment: You can now edit attachments you have and save them to the original item. These edited attachments are saved to the item as personal attachments. See Editing Attachments.
Adding a Note or an Attachment to an Item You Receive: You can now add a personal note and attachments to items you receive. These notes are not sent to others, but are for personal use only. See Section 3.4.1, Personalizing Received E-Mail.
Adding a Contact to an Item You Receive: When you receive an item from a contact, you can add additional contacts to that received item. This is helpful when you are viewing the history with a contact in the Address Book. See Adding a Contact to an E-Mail You Receive.
Message Preview: In your Item List, you can select to display the first few lines of a message in the list. This is helpful when you do not have the QuickViewer open.
Reply to Sent Item (v8.0.1): A reply option is now available for all sent items. See Section 3.2.4, Replying to Sent E-Mail.
