Group address book in GroupWise 5.5

Group address book in GroupWise 5.5

Group address book in GroupWise 5.5

I am loosing faith in documentation.  I need to create a series of groups in our system.  I understand how to control access through the distribution lists but what I cannot find any where is directions on how to set up the group.  All I can find is setting up a personal address book.  The second problem is that I do not want to enter the user names one at a time.  I would like to pick them out of an existing "everyone" type of group.  I need to set up 5 shared groups within our common already shared address book.  

I also have one address group I will have to enter manually as the receivers do not exist in our current GroupWise environment. This group will consist of a collection of external addresses and needs to appear in our existing shared address book.  (The Admin Department needs to be able to send email to the student's parents)  I'm hoping I can control access through the distribution list for that group.    

We are using Novell 5, GroupWise 5.5, in a 6 server environment.  One of the servers has been set up as the GroupWise email server.  Everything works off the same PO.

Maybe this is an easy one but I have been stumped for about a week now.  Any suggestions, and help would be appreciated.  Thank you.   

RE: Group address book in GroupWise 5.5

Are you referring to creating a group in a user's address book or creating a dist. list in nwadmin?

RE: Group address book in GroupWise 5.5

We have an address book that includes all personnel in the school.  Within that address book I need to create groups for selected users to access.  For example I would need to create a Science Department group.  That way the principle can send one email to the entire department.  Or, a science teacher can send one email to all the science department members.  

RE: Group address book in GroupWise 5.5

The problem has been solved.  When you have a community address book already set up then the new groups are added within NDS.  They are handled as new distribution groups out of your PO.  Thanks to everyone who responded.
