1677 is the stanard GroupWise client/server port, which is used by the "official" GroupWise clients (Windows, Mac, Linux).
7191 is the SOAP port, used by third-party software that integrates with GroupWise.
We'll think about adding a specific set of settings for people using Novell Evolution. Not sure yet if we want to go that route, as I am not sure if anyone is actively developing on the Evolution side of things and how well it works.
Just an update: After that initial sync, it's just about as fast as push email (to the point where I can't tell the difference), and it's actually working quite well.
Also, Evolution Mail is still being actively developed both by Novell and the open source community...apparently 3.0 is in the works as we speak (or 2.34, but let's not get into software version nomenclature...Java, anyone?).
That's also an interesting note about the ports...I'll make note of that. Thanks everyone.
