Notifying the GroupWise Administrator

If you want to be notified with an e-mail message whenever POAs encounter critical errors, you can designate yourself as an administrator of the domain where the post offices are located.

  1. In ConsoleOne, browse to and right-click the Domain object, then click Properties to display the Identification page.

    Domain Identification property page
  2. In the Administrator field, browse to and select your GroupWise user ID.

    A domain can have a single administrator, or you can create a group of users to function as administrators.

  3. Click OK to save the administrator information.

    The selected user or group then begins receiving e-mail messages whenever POAs servicing post offices in the domain encounter critical errors.

Corresponding Startup Switches
By default, the POA generates error mail if an administrator has been assigned for the domain. Error mail can be turned off using the /noerrormail switch in the POA startup file.

POA Web Console
Another way to receive e-mail notification of POA problems is to use GroupWise Monitor to access the POA Web console. See Configuring E-Mail Notification.
