groupwise: reply vs forward
 
In Groupwise, when I reply to a message it appears on my screen
in editable format (lines starting with >). When I forward a message the original is an uneditable "attachment". Is there a setting I can adjust so I can edit a forwarded message? It's often useful to cut a longer message down to the essentials or to add comments to the forwardees embedded in the original message.

My default compose/view is plain text, and in environment>reply format>plain text reply format is internet standard. I can't find any settings for format of forwards.

thanks!

To change the default forward action, click the down arrow to the right of Forward in GoupWise and select "forward." This will forward the message "inline."

If you want to forward as an attachment, simply toggle it back using the same method, selecting "forward as attachment."

Betsy, your solution works for the Groupwise client. But what about when using webaccess? Is there a way to forward a message within webaccess, and get the forwarded message to appear within the text window and not in the "envelope"? I can reply with/without attachment, but the forward button has no down arrow or additional options. The only method I've figured out is to reply and then change the To: address, but that is awkward.

This version does not support inline forwarding (which pastes the text into the body of the forwarded message). We're not sure if the next version will have this feature or not.

For now, using the reply and changing the address is the best workaround other than using the GroupWise client.

Yeah, it's annoying to try to read such things in WebMail too, because you have to open multiple things. Mail.app just in-lines them for me, which is nice.

Now, if GroupWise would correctly format its html messages...

What are you seeing with the HTML formatting?

On Windows the GW client uses Internet Explorer to render the HTML and a Microsoft rich-edit control to create it. Seems to produce HTML that displays fine in IE, Firefox, Safari, Mail.app, Thunderbird, etc.
