GroupWise and Group Policy (GPO)

I know most of the client settings are stored in the GroupWise databases, but some - like address of the post office and port number - are not.

Since we stopped using roaming profiles and started managing users by GPO, the address is empty when they start the client on a new computer.
They are able to login, but some features don't work, ie. it doesn't look like the "Documents\GroupWise" folder is created, so they are not able to open attachments.

Is there a GroupWise Administrative Template or adm for Windows GPO, I can use to define the post office address - and perhaps other registry specific settings?

We use GroupWise 2012 on Windows7, the Windows AD is 2008R2.

    I'm not aware of any GW admin templates for using GPOs, but if you have
    a way of just pushing out registry keys (e.g. using ZENworks), you can
    then push out any of the settings that are stored in the registry. FYI
    you'll find those settings all under
    HKCU\Software\Novell\GroupWise\Client.
