GroupWise in online mode connects directly to the POA agent and polls it every two minutes for updates. Nothing is stored on the local system, all is stored on the server.
GroupWise in Cache mode creates a copy of the user database on the local PC. The structure of the database and the files that go with it are exactly like the client in Remote mode. The client does not connect to the POA agent, it connects to this local database. By default, every 10 minutes the client will sync with the POA. When it does this, it connects to the POA and downloads/uploads all new items.
Notify uses the same DLL's and configuration information as the Client. It makes it's own connection to the POA (hence when someone looks at their POA there are more connections that they would expect. One for the client, and one for Notify). However, Notify looks at the configuration information of the client to know were to connect. So, when your in online mode, notify uses the online mode config to connect to the POA (The GroupWise client does NOT need to be loaded for Notify to work). When your in caching mode, Notify connect to the cache. The problem is that Notify does not have anyway to sync your cache with the online mail box. This is why you must have the GroupWise client running in order to get notification of new email when your in caching mode.
To close, if you want Notify to work the way you want it to work, use Online mode. If you have to use caching mode, give up on Notify.
