We do this now with ZENworks by pushing this Reg Key down to the workstation: HKCU\Software\Novell\GroupWise\Client\Setup\DocMan=Off

Some of my users create folders for keeping track of items inside the Documents folder instead of the Cabinet folder. Should they use WebAccess, this will be problematic. I would rather, as the admin, have the ability to just prevent the Documents folder from existing. New users should be created without it, and old users should (behind the scenes) get redirected by the POA to the root of the Cabinet folder.

Agreed. The reg key is a workaround, but not an acceptable permanent solution. This really should be a setting within GroupWise.

I totally agree - this is not a feature we use nor do I want our users to see it. The last thing I need is another place for them to save something or want to save something 🙂
