Address Book is Blank

Address Book is Blank

Address Book is Blank

I just setup 7 new Windows 2000 PCs on a Netware 4.11 server running GroupWise 5.2.  The Novell client for 2000 is installed and the Windows Messaging for Windows 2000 was installed on the PCs before installing the GroupWise client.
On five of the PCs this worked great but two of the PCs have a blank Novell Address book.  Any ideas?  (When we ran into this with Windows 98 it took removing the Windows messaging and reinstalling the oldwin95 message from the W98 install disk).

RE: Address Book is Blank

While I'm not certain about Windows 2K, I've run into this myself on Win9x machines. When the Novell address book is blank, "usually" the Windows mail profile setup is not referencing the GroupWise address book. This is often accompanied by an error message referencing "MS Exchange". If you go into "Control Panel" and double-click on the "Mail" icon, you can see whether or not GroupWise is the address book of choice.
