    I think TeamWorks is a great, new way to interact with dedicated teams. I find it much more engaging than traditional email, personally! Yes, it’s not for everyone– but for quickly “scrumming” around team projects, I find it does the trick!

    GroupWise Mailbox Management: GroupWise Mailbox Management has been integrated into the GroupWise Admin Console, enabling you to manage users’ rules.

    Any documentation on this? Getting a trusted app error when trying to access from the Admin Console

    • By:JayParker

      In 18.1 GroupWise uses SOAP to access user’s mailbox for Mailbox Management when the license has been updated to provide access. To use SOAP we also needed a Trusted App for authentication.

      When the license is updated a specific Trusted App named ” GROUPWISE MAILBOX MANAGEMENT” is created to use and the error indicates that Trusted App does not exist.

      It is likely a result of one of these three causes.
      1. The license was updated but the Trusted App was not created.
      2. The license was NOT updated, but the code thinks it should use SOAP.
      3. The license was updated AND the Trusted App was created but was manually deleted afterwards.

      Regardless of the cause, a Trusted App named ” GROUPWISE MAILBOX MANAGEMENT” can be created manually to resolve the problem.

      Please open a support request ticket so that our Customer Care team can work with you to reproduce the problem and to create a bug report for development.
