    We are a large international organization. Is it possible to creat a check box or a popup window, to distinguish between offical email and unoffical email? This would be very helpfull to us.

    Yes, this is possible. We will post an example applet in this thread later today.

    Please see below some sample applet code that demonstrates one approach to this problem. Copy the source into a new applet in Formativ and integrate it with the Email toolbar. When you open a new email message, a new button will appear on the email view that lets you define whether the email message is official or otherwise. The applet uses a custom field which can be displayed in the GroupWise client. See the comments section at the top of the source code for more information.

    I hope this helps. Please note that this is example code, and does not implement complete error checking, etc.

    Please note that we do offer Formativ development services. If you are interested, please send an email to formativsales@advansyscorp.com for more information.

    ' Message Type Selection
    ' Designed By : Formativ Business Solutions Team
    ' Date Created: 4 January 2002
    ' Version 1.0
    ' This applet is a simple demonstration of using a custom field to categorize
    ' existing email messages as either 'Official' or 'Unofficial'. It adds a button
    ' to the GroupWise email. This button displays a dialog that allows the user to
    ' categorize the message as either 'Official' or 'Unofficial'. As all messages
    ' in the account are assumed to be Official by default, data is only stored in
    ' the custom field if the user designates the message as unofficial.
    ' You can see the state of messages by adding the "ADV Official Status" custom
    ' field to the mail list column header in the client. Those messages that have
    ' not yet been categorized will have no text appear in the display. Those that
    ' have been designated as unofficial will have the word "Unofficial" appear.
    ' You can easily search for unoffical messages by using the standard GroupWise
    ' Find facility, using the Advanced find option.
    ' You may need to restart the client the very first you execute the applet in
    ' order to see the newly created custom field
    ' INTEGRATIONS: This applet has already been integrated with the email view, but
    ' the integration has been disabled. Enable it in the Integrations tab in
