I have sent them the dumps, not sure what to look for in these dumps
myself though.

I would have thought that the GroupWise Windows client crash dump file
that you captured for Micro Focus Support would expose what part of the
client is crashing.

We have users with constant GroupWise client crashes which is getting
to the point of it being unusable for them.

We have tried various things like installing the latest GroupWise
client, re-imaging computers and even giving people different PCs
altogether as recommended by MicroFocus.

I have also ran multiple Analyze/Fix and Structural Rebuilds on a bunch
of users. The POA also don't seem to be that busy, we have no CS reqs
pending and the threads seem to be all close to 0.

I have even doubled the RAM and the CPU on the POA server.

We currently have 18.1 installed.

I'm out of ideas and desperate to get this fixed, I have sent multiple
crash dumps and POA logs to MF, but they have not been able to help me
over the course of over a month.

If anyone has any suggestions that might help resolve this I will be
willing to try it.
