    GWIA does not send message from reply rule
    Creator of rule gets undeliverable recipient(s) message from Postmaster
    ERROR: "Response: 504 Need Fully Qualified Address"
    GWIA inbound/outbound messages work fine, except for reply rule


    1. Launch ConsoleOne
    2. Click Tools | GroupWise System Opertions | Select Domain and connect to the Domain
    3. Right click on GWIA and click Properties
    4. Under the SMTP/MIME tab select "Address Handling"

    Rule generated messages are handled a little differently at the GWIA to help to prevent looping messages.   The "From" information also can be populated by adding a postmaster to the GWIA.
