Mobility 18.1.1 483 - Saves duplicate draft emails

I'm seeing this from some Android devices, as well as Windows 10 mail. As an email is composed, every pause in typing creates another duplicate draft email in "Work in Progress" - and when the email is eventually sent those duplicates remain. I have users with thousands of emails in "Work in Progress" - all duplicates of sent mails. I thought there was a way to disable syncing drafts, but I can't locate the setting in the documentation. I would prefer not to disable draft syncing but with this problem I don't see another choice, unless this is a known issue that's slated to be fixed.

This is a known issue however we do not yet have a fix for it nor a time
frame for when that fix will be available. We do have a possible fix that
may or may not fix it. Please open an SR and refer to the possible fix in
defect 1119742.

Thanks,

Pam

Hello,

I have verified the available fix for the emailDraft.pyc , but unfortunately we still see the issue. I do hope there is a solution available very soon.

Engineering is aware of the fact that the first proposed fix is not working in all cases.  They are working on this again now so hopefully we will have a fix soon.

Hi Martin,

have you seen this discussion? https://community.microfocus.com/t5/GroupWise-User-Discussions/Will-GMS-18-2-work-with-GW-18-1-1-amp-will-GW-18-2-work-on-SLES/m-p/2707611#M84342

Maybe you can try a really new GMS against GroupWise 18.1.1. Well, it is not supported so let's start with an extra trial VM.

Hi,

This issue is resolved in GMS 18.2 FTF build 541 or greater.  Open a service request to get it or wait a short while for the public release of GMS 18.2.1

Yes, you can run GMS 18.2.x against a GroupWise 18.x.x backend.

Cheers,
