Dear David,

Thank you for your questions above. You can use the mailto: formatting convention to launch GroupWise. However, tests reveal the OnCompose event (configured to fire after the event) fires _before_ GroupWise has finished completing the body of the message. As this is the only event I think would be useful in this case, automating the process would be problematic.

My initial suggestion would be to write an applet that places a button on the mail toolbar. Pressing this button checks the body of the message to see if it contains a pre-defined marker, and replaces the body if a marker is found.

In terms of the send event, yes, you could do this. We have posted some applets on Novell CoolSolutions that should give you a head start:


* 20 Jun 2002 – Find records in Access database
* 24 Sep 2002 – Save Message and Attachments
* 28 Jul 2003 – Export to Disk

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you require any further assistance.
