GWIA class of service for other mail clients not working?

Hello,

We are running a Groupwise 2014 R2 SP1 Server. To restrict the mail traffic we are using class of service in the GWIA.

We are using 2 class of service settings: "Default Class of Service" and "Internal"
The " Default Class of Service" allows everything and here are all users member of it.
The " Internal" contains only a few users, which are only allowed to send to 3 external mail domains and they can't receive any external emails.

These is working fine if the user is using a Groupwise mail client.

We also use for example Thunderbird or other mail clients to connect to the Groupwise Server GWIA (via IMAP and SMTP).
Here I found out that the restriction in "Internal" COS is not working.

Are the class of service not working if you are using a mail client that is connected via IMAP and SMTP?


I'm sure, that this worked with GroupWise 6.5 or 8
Was there a change in the functionality of GroupWise COS in the last versions?

Best regards,
Christian

unfortunately never worked.

Re: GWIA class of service for other mail clients not working

Hi Christian,

As far as I am aware the Class of Service to limit receiving/sending mail to/from internet destinations is restricted to messages sent via SMTP/MIME and won't work with IMAP.

I got this information here: GWIA Classes of Service

I'll dig into GroupWise 8 documentation and see if it's the same or not.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Re: GWIA class of service for other mail clients not working

I think it depends on what you are trying to accomplish. Restricting the GWIA class without having an IMAP restriction will allow IMAP users to log in. The GWIA restriction SHOULD, however, keep them from sending, even when attached via an IMAP client. Can you be more specific when you say "Internal COS is not working" exactly?

Thanks.

Are you sure? I'm pretty certain that's not the case, but would love to
be wrong.
