Using GW8 client with 6.5 POA

This is what I want to do..
I have a client that is using Groupwise 6.5 for only looking up old emails and addresses. They have gone to Google mail for all there newer stuff. They are getting some Windows 7 PCs. I want to know if I should use the GW 8 client to just access the old post offices? Or should I do something else?

Thanks,

You cannot use a newer client against an older POA. Period.
Consider using IMAP for their rare needs (although this doesn't give you
their address).

Or use the standard 6.5 client in XP mode on the Win 7 machines

I am going to try using XP mode. I have never used it for an application before but... here goes nothing. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Thanks

Have a look at Cloud Technology Solutions they have a GroupWise to Google migration suite that will move mail and archives to Google Apps
