GroupWise 5.5 Enhancement Pack CD Available for Home Use

By Mike Williams, Campus Wide Networks Desktop Support Specialist

The GroupWise 5.5 Enhancement Pack Client is now available. It is being installed around campus and you can also check it out for home use (contact me about checking out CDs). You'll find significant updates and new features including:


You can easily find UNT students and other internet E-mail addresses by adding LDAP address books to your GroupWise client. Use UNT specific or general-purpose Internet-wide address books like BigFoot and Switchboard. Sets up in seconds. Learn how to use this feature at

Internet Mail Accounts

Access your other POP3 and most IMAP4 Internet E-mail accounts (like Yahoo, HotMail, and other ISP E-mail providers), all simultaneously from your GroupWise desktop. Sets up in about a minute per E-mail account. Learn how to use this feature at

Routing Slips

Use Routing Slips to send a mail message or task to several people consecutively. You can add attachments for editing, track the status of the routed item, and require a password to mark the item Completed. No setup required (requires at least client 5.5 on all receivers).
