Not totally sure on GW 6, I migrated from GW to E2K.

1)     Folders can be shared, but are limited to the ones MS decided you
can share.  Public folders are fine to share documents and such.
However, if multiple people use the same document, conflicts can occur

2)     Resources exist, that's how we book conference rooms.  No
problems there.

3)     Message retraction sucks compared to GW.  If prompts the
recipient if they want to allow the retraction.  If they don't want to,
your outta luck.

4)     Auto-date works ok for us, we have meetings scheduled weekly.

5)     Message tracking has to be enabled before sending emails, unlike
GW's always on and doesn't send you pesky notifications with the info.

6)     There's a document viewer in Outlook?

Subject: [exchangelist] Outlook Differences from GroupWise

We are currently on GroupWise 6 SP3.  We will be migrating to Outlook
2003 and are concerned with some of the functions that our users are
used to that will not longer be available.  Can anyone tell me give me
some feedback on the following differences. and what possible 3rd party
products will solve these functionality differences.


1.  Shared folders versus Public Folders


2.  Have not found Resources but think that Public Folders might  work
for us. 


3.  Message retraction


4.  Auto-date for randomly scheduled appointments


5.  Message tracking


6.  Document Viewer 


Thanks in Advance
