Groupwise snaps into NWAdmin. simple put when
groupwise was installed it hooked itself into
NWAdmin. You need to run the NWAdmin with
the groupwise snapin. Once you are running
the right NWadmin, you should see a tab
named Groupwise account (scroll down till you see it). You then select the Post Office that the user will use.
In some environments there are multiple Groupwise Post Offices, this is done to load balance the mail. IF this is what you have you may have to check another user account to see what they have for their post office.
To help in the future, you could make a User template in the OU that you are creating users that points to the correct post office for that set of users.
Hope this helps!

Hi,

If you have already installed Groupwise, you should have the Netware Administrator Snap-In's installed. Run Netware Administrator (NWAdmn32.exe in SYS:Public\Win32 directory).
Under the Tools Menu, you should have a Groupwise View item. Thisopens a new window with just Groupwise related info visible. Expand the tree as necessary until you can see the Post Office name. Either right-click or double-click the PO name for the Details window. Click the Membership button on the right. Providing that you have previously added/set up your Novell Users, you should be able to click the ADD button and add Valid users to the PO as desired.

Good Luck
Brad Hulse

Both answers above are correct, but I just have one note to add...if you are running Groupwise 5.5, you don't need to install a snap-in, but you MUST run NWADMN32 from the Win32 directory. If you are running Groupwise 5.2, you will need to install the snap-in or locate the PC that was previously used for administration in hopes that it has the snap-in installed. If you need to install it, you should be able to find it on the Groupwise CD.

And one last addition to the answers above--which are all good! You must run NWADMIN32 from the server where GroupWise is installed. You should also copy the sys\public\win32 directory from the GroupWise server to any other servers so that the snapin is available no matter which server you run NWADMIN from.
