    Question GroupWise Client 6.5

    This question is specific to the GroupWise version 6.5 client, if your not using it, this likely won't make much sense.

    I am testing the new Junk Mail Handler in the GroupWise Client (6.5). When
    I enter a specific e-mail address (e.g. bob@hotmail.com), incoming e-mail
    from that address is either blocked or sent to junk as it suppose to be.
    However, if I attempt to block/junk the whole domain (e.g. hotmail.com)
    all inbound e-mail makes it through to the mailbox. I have tried the
    following syntax:

    hotmail.com
    *.hotmail.com
    *@hotmail.com

    All e-mails make it through, what am I missing here? The documentation
    says you can block or junk at the domain level.

    I have also posted this in the Novell forums, but no answers yet.

    Thanks
    Cheers:

    Im not sure since it's ages since I used Groupwise but I checked around a little bit and Junk mail options are defined with ConsolOne (and thus stored in NDS and probably will NWAdmin work aswell), it may be a administrative error or 'feature' defined there which makes the domain block not to work properly.

    According to what I found out are Junkmail defined like this in the client, Block by domain: hotmail.com and
    by user: user@hotmail.com but I may be wrong.

    Another way to block unwanted mail is to create a rule, create rules.


    Hope this helps.

    Thanks micael, from what I've found, the options within ConsolOne, effect the system wide options, I am trying to deal with the individual client options.

    Another way to block unwanted mail is to create a rule, create rules.
    We are currently using rules in the 5.5 client, but you know users, they more often than not screw-up their typing when entering a rule and end up blocking good e-mail. I was hoping the Junk Mail Handler might be a little more idiot proof.

    Thanks

    Putting the 6.5 client on my machine happens to be on my agenda for things to do tomorrow. I'll see if I can't noodle your problem out and get back to you if you haven't already found a solution.

    I assume your running the 6.5 backend as well, if not, your going to have issues.
