Problem

A Forum reader recently asked:

“We need to perform IMAP header searches on messages in users’ mailboxes. The GroupWise 7.0.1 release notes state that the IMAP search header <FIELD> <STRING> command works for most header fields. It says “most” fields, so I guess we need a definition for that qualifier.”

And here is the response from Morris Blackham …

Solution

With GroupWise 7.0 or 7.01 or later, all x-fields are now added to the user.db so they can be searched on. Other header fields may or may not be searchable. If it corresponds to a normal GroupWise field, like TO, FROM, Subject, Date, etc., it’s fine. But something like Importance: or Disposition-Notification-To: ?? is probably not. The Precedence, Received and Return-Path fields are added and searchable.
