Open GroupWise Resource in MS Outlook

By luv2bike2 ·
I have a GroupWise Resource account that I can use Proxy in the GroupWise client, but I have a few users that use Outlook to open up their GroupWise messages and do not have GroupWise Client installed on their systems. Is it possible to Proxy/Sharethe GroupWise Resource account in MS Outlook? When I am in Outlook Client and go to File/Open the Open Share folders is grayed out. Is there something that I need to install? Is this possible? Thanks

Quite a predicament but I have to stray from the main topic to ask, why would you let Outlook users connect to a GroupWise server for mail. If someone did that at my office, I'd toss their laptop out the window for jeopardizing my network's security.
M$ has never been able to write code that works well wirh Novell products, you would be better off searching the GroupWise resources for a patch on Novells site. I don't think the basic GroupWise > Outlook patch from Novell will work but it might, it is better to find something made by Novell due to the security measures used by GrouWise.

I assume you must be using GW6.0 because you say the users have no client installed (which is not needed for GW6). You may need to actually install the GW6 client and just use the standard GW>Outlook patch from Novell. THis way they can use Outlook for all the home based email and the GW client via Outlook when connected to the server. Still a very insecure practice, hope you're not too concerned about network security.
