Where is mail saved

Where is mail saved

My Groupwise is screwed up.
It runs fine...unless I rebuild the
postoffice database...then some of
us cannot log in.

If I restore the NDS and groupwise directories we can work...but cannot
get new users into the address book.

I'd like to scrap this install...
create a brand new one...and

Can anyone help me with this?

RE: Where is mail saved

I have never seen this problem before but there seems to be some RIGHTS issues in your directory structure. I had an install where not all the rights were appropriately assign to the directory. I then explicitly specified the ALL rights for the directory (at the top of the PO) and everything worked. This did leave a security hole but it got everything working.

RE: Where is mail saved

If your running GW5 I would highly recomend that you use client\server mode only. This will stop you from having to assign rights to servers that the users really dont need.
After I did this I would do A top down rebuild of the system using the tools in nwadmin.

RE: Where is mail saved

Thank you both...I will try it.
