The GroupWise® 7 Migration Utility for Microsoft* Exchange migrates Exchange data into a GroupWise system. Exchange users’ mailboxes are migrated completely, with the exception of rules, search folders, and junk e-mail lists. Distribution lists/groups are migrated completely, including nested distribution lists/groups. Exchange public folders are converted into standard GroupWise folders residing in one or more GroupWise resource mailboxes that all users are given proxy rights to. Users’ personal PST files can be imported using the GroupWise Import Utility for Microsoft Outlook.

If you have contacts in Exchange public folders, they migrate successfully to GroupWise. However, when you proxy in to the resource that owns the resulting GroupWise folder, you cannot see the contacts in the folder. GroupWise does not grant proxy access to contacts.
If messages in Exchange have no recipients (that is, no distribution list), the messages are converted into posted items when they are migrated to GroupWise.
