I and running GroupWise 18.1 on server and a few trial workstations. 
I have been asked "Why does your email server chop out the actual email
text you are responding to? Not a big deal, but it doesn't make it
difficult to piece together conversations when I review threads." and "I
wouldn't say anything but, it gets confusing when I’m trying to review a
thread to make sure I've covered everything."

Apparently what the person at the other end sees the a portion of the
original email and your response. This cuts out any of the conversation
between the original email and your response, so in a thread with 10
responses, a great deal is missing for the recipient. I am the only
person he communicates with using the GroupWise 18.1 client and he has
no problems with any others. Another of his clients who uses GroupWise
told him that they "knew all about the “conversation mode” problem with
the 18 client. They said it was out in the forums. They didn't fight it,
they just downgraded to 14.
I have disabled "conversation threading" and the problem has gone away.
 In my limited view, this is a problem that makes "conversation
threading" something that will have to be turned off at the post office
level or higher before I can roll out the 18.1 client to the rest of the
office.  Apparently they did not think to test that aspect before it was
