[ngw] Duplicate FID - how much of a problem?

on what we added to the GroupWise client for a FID change

FIDs are only unique within a GroupWise PO.  When you move a mailbox from PO1 to PO2 and the FID already exists on PO2 (this is called a FID collision) PO2's POA will assign a new FID to that mailbox coming inbound.

The only concern is with the users Archive Data-store (if in use) that was keyed to the old users PO1 FID.  The new GroupWise 2014 client will automatically take care of the FID change of that users mailbox after the User Move.

I just found the same FID in use by two different mailboxes.  I don't
recall how much of a problem that is.  Obviously, I could not move
either mailbox to the same post office of the other.  Are there other
effects or problems that might arise?
