grace period expires

Groupwise 18.0 

We are retiring our Groupwise servers - what happens after the 60-day grace period expires?  Will we be able to access mailboxes and their archives?  

  •   Can I ask why you are decommissioning your GW servers?

    As far as I know, you should still be able to access emails/archives.

  • a new team is beginning to manage the IT environment, and those of us experienced Gwise staff will re-tool with Outlook. The new people have Outlook and Exchange experience, and they are a great group to work with.  Decisions are made using a different metric than what we see on a day to day basis. I will miss the calendar-resources.  

    We certainly do not make the change because of the product.  In some ways it is a continuation of the Microsoft push/pull that drove the Netware product from the marketplace. We started our adventure in 1997.  

  • That is a shame.

    We have gone through great lengths to make Outlook and GroupWise compatible or even use Outlook Front end for a GW back-end.

    Anyway, thank you for your custom.

    I hope you can still stay engaged on other products.
