[ngw] Consulting needed - Migration from GroupWise

I can certainly see your point, it is a GroupWise list.  But, sadly, we cannot all live in a bubble.  Mind you, if I had my way -I would spend the rest of my natural life doing GroupWise on NetWare Clusters. To me that was a great time in GroupWise and Novell.  But NetWare is dead, sadly.  GroupWise is not fairing well -at this point.  I believe the new mgmt. will do a good job and I have never doubted the GroupWise dev team. But times are changing.  In fact over the years, this list has had tons of people that have sought help to stop migrations as well as interfacing with other messaging solutions.  No need to stop the flow of ideas and assistance.  

Take Care.

Same here. No chance.

I even dont want to know Office365, Google apps perhaps, since I am a fan
of GMail, as the 1st cloud mail package years ago even. Not that I am being
asked or not, just that my groove stays with GroupWise and its community.
Hence the new website, presence at GWAVACon EMEA, new utils, and 10 years
of GWCheck.com, coming to an online event in november.

I find it tricky that you dare to ask for such a service in this NGW List,
cause it means you think more people are moving or being moved. The NGW
List is a pure and hundred percent or let's say GroupWIse365, even 366, or
in FTP terms: GroupWise777. I think anyone moving to Exchange is not going
to ask here how to do it.

I understand the need for this yet would appreciate if no more of this
requests would be posted in the NGW List. I am not sure if others feel the
same, yet let's keep the NGW a GW List. How to run GW, not break it down.
The fun of administrating a messaging product can go wider, yet I am
willing to start a list for that. Seperate from this one. CMC List, the
cross messaging and collaboration list. Independent of the system, hence
all products and all solutions.

Let me know if there is people herer that will become member of such a
list. CMC?
