converting gw to outlook

converting gw to outlook

converting gw to outlook

Hi all,

I'm doubtful that I can do this....IT is forcing us to downsize our personal gw email collections prior to converting to outlook.  I searched through other posts here and it looks like security, etc. makes it difficult to backup and then retrieve gw emails.  Some of these posts looked old.   

I would like to know my options in regards to archiving and then retrieving with outlook when we convert. If no options avail, I might just send the really important emails to my gmail account.

RE: converting gw to outlook

quest - expensive though

nothing much else due to security as gw is secure - outlook well lets just say ...

RE: converting gw to outlook

Just keep your GroupWise e-mail and use the GW client to access it OFFLINE.  If you do a full CACHING of your mailbox, you can access it forever if you store it on your local computer (if that's allowed) and if they allow you to keep the GW client on your computer.

You would just need to point to the path of the caching mailbox in your client.
