Novell GroupWise 8


In a received message that contains a hyperlink in the message body, the hyperlink works fine.
Changing the message type (from the open message) by choosing Edit | Change To |Reminder Note (or any type) | and Click Post.
Now, open the Note in the Calendar and the Hyperlink is no longer clickable.
This problem happens using HTML or Plain Text.

Works fine in the GroupWise Linux & Mac clients.


Reported to Engineering as an enhancement request.

Additional Information

In the Windows client, hyperlinks are not clickable (for navigation) in an edit view. When you change a recieved item to a posted item it now becomes an editable view.
Therefore, hyperlinks are not clickable in posted items.
