>>I thought I would reply here to keep everyone in the loop.  GroupWise GWIA doesn't like when there are either spaces or extended ascii characters in a user name.  The easiest workaround is to create an alias for those users and this has to be done for those users with the extended ascii characters in their names.  You can add the -msstu switch to GWIA for the users with spaces in their names.  This will convert the spaces to underscores and all the message to be sent.
