Groupwise 8 Client

Is the Groupwise 8 client compatible with Groupwise 7?

RE: Groupwise 8 Client

No, it always works the other way.  The higher back-end is compatible with older Groupwise clients.  You start at the server FIRST or BIG PROBLEMS.

GroupWise 8 Windows Client with GroupWise 7

Table Summary: The GroupWise 8 Windows client cannot communicate with the GroupWise 7 POA, nor can it access a GroupWise 7 post office directly. The general rule is that earlier POAs cannot communicate with later GroupWise clients, but later POAs can always communicate with earlier GroupWise clients.
