The GroupWise 7 Gateway for Microsoft Exchange connects a GroupWise system and an Exchange system by creating a link between a GroupWise domain and an Exchange server, as shown in the following diagram.
For additional architectural information, see Exchange Gateway Best Practices by consultant Ed Hanley.
The GroupWise 7 version of the Exchange Gateway provides the following capabilities:
Message exchange between users of GroupWise 5.x, 6.x, and 7.x and users of Exchange 5.5, 2000, and 2003.
Directory exchange, so that GroupWise users can be imported into the Exchange Address Book and Exchange users can be imported into the GroupWise Address Book. This enables users to select recipients from either system in their respective, familiar Address Books.
Directory synchronization, so that when users are added or removed, or user information is modified, the changes are automatically replicated between the GroupWise and Exchange systems. This keeps the GroupWise and Exchange Address Books up-to-date for all users.
Bi-directional Busy Search (Free/Busy) between GroupWise and Exchange 2000/2003.
