you could put a nginx reverse proxy in front of GMS, GWWeb and Webaccess
and than you can use 443
for all from the outside

Best regards

In my, and my clients' configurations, I have GMS and GW Web running on
one Server, and GroupWise running on the OES Servers.

I put GW Web on port 446, and have devices connecting to GMS on 447.

It works fine, the users just have to have <ip>:446 or <ip>:447 when

Webaccess itself is on the OES Server, and is accessed via normal
https:<ip> or A record

Is that a new requirement? Initially when GW Web was in testing I had
it running on the same box as Webaccess.. Just on different ports.

I'm pretty sure you would need to run the 18.2 webacc on a separate
server from  the 18.3 agents, though.
I assume larger environments do that in any case, but smaller sites run
everything on one server.

You can still run 18.2 Webaccess, it's just on the Install. It is what
I have done. 

If you have GW 18.2 and 18.2 Webaccess, then upgrade to 18.3, GW Web
18.3 etc for those that want it, but 18.2 Webaccess will still be there.
If for some reason it isn't, then you can drop in a 18.2 Install, and
install just the Webaccess. It all co-exists quite happily.

I agree with all of these, and this is a great list for 18.4!

The ability to move the Compose Window is especially important for
iPads, as users end up typing blind with the pop-up keypad obscuring the
Compose Window.

We recently switched from the old web access to the new GW Web. For
those who haven't yet made the switch the following are a list of things
that our users noticed/complained about. Some of them might have
solutions that I don't know, some are probably bugs, and some of the
issues might be present in the old version as well.

* There is no way to add or edit contacts.

* The calendar currently does not show category colors.
* Multiple day events are only displayed on the first day.
* Busy search, while present, has been confusing for our users. (Click
the blue check is fine, but apparently clicking the red X to look for a
time slot that works is hard to figure out.)
* The calendar does not refresh automatically.
* Creating a personal calendar entry is obscure. (Compose a calendar
entry and then click the person icon is a lot more obtuse than dragging
a range in the calendar.)
* There's no ability to drag a personal calendar entry to a new time.
* Changing the time of a non-personal appointment requires deleting it
and creating a new one.
* There's no multi-user calendar displa
y. (I'm sure that's not present
in the old one either.)

* There's no spell checker and the browser based spell checkers (Chrome
and Firefox at least) do not appear to be operable while composing a
* There's no print option.
* There's no resend option.
* There's no ability to retract a message.
* The current quota usage is not displayed.
* There's no change to option. (I don't think that's in the old one.)
* The number of unread messages is not displayed in the folder list.
* If you click reply or reply all on a message, the CC and BCC options
are not visible unless you click the recipient first.
* If you turn off the preview pane, there's no way to resize the
columns or sort by the other columns.
* Messages opened as windows cannot be moved or resized.
* When a message is open in a window, there are no controls in the
window to reply/forwrad/delete the message.
* The advanced find features are not present.
* If you do a find and then delete a message from find, you return to
the full message list not the found message list.
* Any message filter in the sent items folder will return an empty
list. (This happens in the old version as well.)
* When in composing a message/appointment, if you right click in the
message body, the menu that appears only lists Link. The standard
editing tools (paste in particular) are not available. (Control-right
click works around that.)

* There does not appear to be a way to select multiple messages on a
mobile device.
* In portrait mode, while looking a message the ... extended menu is
not present. There is an option to move a message, but not to mark it as
unread or private.
* In the message list, press and hold to get the context menu works on
Android but not iOS. (I'm not an iOS person, so I may not know the work
around but I haven't found an alternative.)

Mac Mail
* If you send an HTML message from GW Web that contains an inline
image, only the image is visible if the message is read on Mac Mail. It
shows up as expected elsewhere.
