Can I send an appointment from GroupWise to Outlook through GWIA?


The specific information that pertains to GroupWise appointments, notes, and tasks is stripped off as the message goes through the Internet Agent. The Internet Agent sends out a simple MIME compatible e-mail message for Internet compatibility.
Even if this information was preserved through the Internet Agent, Microsoft Outlook/Exchange does not support GroupWise appointment information and would not display the message as an appointment, note, or task.

Additional Information

Answer:  No, not really.  GroupWise Appointments, Notes, and Tasks sent to Outlook via the GroupWise Internet Agent or SMTP Gateway are changed to Mail messages, so although the apointment will be sent, it will not be put into the GroupWise calendar, but in the inbox as a message.
