GroupWise® Resource Archive Readme
The GroupWise Resource Archive contains an invaluable source of GroupWise information.  Collated by Advansys® over many years, it contains NGW Digest emails since November 1999 from the essential GroupWise administrator's self-help NGW List resource, www.ngwlist.com.  In addition, it includes Novell® GroupWise® Cool Solutions weekly news since May 2001, www.gwmag.com.

The supplied Advansys Archive To Go Viewer and Finder software enables you to find the GroupWise information you need quickly.  Use Archive To Go's full text search engine to leverage years of invaluable experience shared by GroupWise administrators, independent experts, vendors and Novell staff.

Searching the Archive

The search capabilities provide a powerful mechanism to find the GroupWise information you need.  Use Archive To Go's full text search engine to locate what you need from years of invaluable experience shared by GroupWise administrators, independent experts, vendors and Novell staff.

Once the search index is created (see below), simply click the Find button or press the Ctrl + F keys to start the Archive To Go Finder.  See the Archive To Go Viewer documentation for details on the type of searches which are possible.

Creating a Search Index

To decrease download file size, a search index may not be included in the GroupWise Resource Archive ZIP file you downloaded.  Before you can search the GroupWise Resource Archive, you will need to create a search index.

To create a search index, simply start the Archive To Go Viewer application and press the Find button or press the Ctrl + F keys.  You will be prompted whether you wish to create an index.  Press Yes to create the index.  Due to the volume of email information to be indexed, this can take some time.  The index time will vary according to your system configuration.

Notes

The GroupWise Resource Archive is created using Advansys Archive To Go - Mailbox Exporter for GroupWise (www.archive2go.com).  After export, an automated process is used to remove email addresses from the email content.  To enable searching for all messages from a specific person, where available, contributor display names are preserved.
