Opening .msg attachment deletes contents of trash

If we try to open up a .MSG attachment the computer attempts to run the
microsoft exchange client. The splash screen comes up and then a pop-up error
that it can't run. When going back to the GW8 client all the trash is now
gone.

Internet Explorer is pointing to GW as the default mail client. There is only
one mail profile and it is GW.

Re: Opening .msg attachment deletes contents of trash

I had similar experience (running GW8HP1) but I killed MS EXCHANGE when it
started loading because I know that it will mess GroupWise up if it loads.

If I look at my machine (WinXPPRO) which has GW8HP1 loaded, go into the file
type associations in Windows Explorer, indeed MSG is associated with
"Microsoft Exchange EXE", if I click the CHANGE button, in the RECOMMENDED
PROGRAMS I see Microsoft Exchange and the GroupWise Client. If I do a
similar exercise on another WinXPPRO machine that's running GW703HP1, only
Microsoft Exchange is available (MSG is still associated).

Not sure if any of this helps, perhaps this problem was there all along...??
Obviously the solution would be to associate MSG with the GroupWise client
(or with NOTEPAD??).

Cheers
James

Re: Opening .msg attachment deletes contents of trash

I did check and GW client was not one of the choices. On that machine I
unassociated .msg file types with anything but am wondering if I will need to
do this on all of our workstations. Although, now that you mention it I can
browse to the grpwise.exe and point it to that. Would think this should have
been taken care of in the install particularly since the Trash folder is
deleted.
