Changing users in GroupWise 8

Changing users in GroupWise 8

Changing users in GroupWise 8

IN former iterations of GroupWise I could change who I'm logging in as with the /@u- switch, but that no longer seems to be the case with GroupWise 8.  Instead it seems to cache my username/password until the next time I reboot my machine.  Occasionally I need to log on as another user (for example, creating a new user and proxy rights) but I don't necessarily want to have to reboot my PC to do it.  Is there any other way in GroupWise 8?

RE: Changing users in GroupWise 8

Did you shut down NOTIFY as well BEFORE trying to login as the other user???  Notify will "hold" the identity until closed.

RE: Changing users in GroupWise 8

I checked and Notify is not running.  I even checked running processes.

RE: Changing users in GroupWise 8

As I understand it there are 4 elements to GroupWise and if any of them are running the user is still logged in
Address Book

But the most common hidden one is Notify - somewhere in the tray.
