Novell GroupWise 8


The GWIA is not handling nicknamed address properly as a nickname loop can be created. An incoming message, for example, to with a nickname that resolves to and is supposed to route out the GWIA will just loop back into the GWIA.


This has been reported to engineering and will be considered for a future release of GroupWise
