    I need to somwhow notify the user when a message arrives in a shared folder.

    Groupwise’s Notify doesnt seem to be able to do that.

    Is there an event that is triggered when a new message arrives or something like that?

    Thank you for your question.

    Unfortunately what you require does not seem to be possible. We have done some testing of this issue here at Advansys, using both:

    • Notify Options, to select a Shared folder;
    • The event ‘On message arrival’ for the GroupWise Application (on the Integrations tab in Formativ Central).

    The latter approach is associated with a Formativ applet, which is launched when the event fires.

    In our tests, neither approach had any effect when a message arrived, or was moved into, in a Shared folder.

    We are not sure whether this is a defect in GroupWise/Notify. Therefore we will look into having Novell add this issue to their enhancement database for GroupWise and/or GroupWise Notify.

    Thanks! I think i’ll just send everyone a notification message, that seems to be the easiest workaround.

    But there’s another problem:
    I want to delete a message in an shared folder (owned by someone else).
    When I try to remove() the Msg, nothing happens. There is no error at all, but the message is still there.

    (I have the nessesary rights on the folder, I can delete the message manually)



    I can successfully move() the Message to a local folder and then remove() it there, but not directly in the shared folder.

    Very strange.

    Here is an example applet to delete a message from a shared folder. The key to this solution is the Token GroupWise.Refresh, used instead of the Object API method Account.Refresh.

    Sub Main(Client, GWEvent)
      dim oMsg
      if Client.ClientState.SelectedMessages.Count = 0 then
        exit sub
      end if
      set oMsg = Client.ClientState.SelectedMessages.Item(1)
      msgbox oMsg.Subject
      set oMsg = nothing
    End Sub

    I hope this helps.
