[ngw] GW 2012 domain shows "closed"

Thunderbird works pretty well with GroupWise. You would still need a newer version to do contact and calendar sync, though.
I do like that there is a plugin for Thunderbird that links to Nextcloud so you can add attachment links instead of large files directly in email.
Just like the GW client does with filr.

Yeah, it's way old.  But apparently there is no upgrade path any longer, 
that I am willing to pay for anyway.  I've not even been able to move it 
to supported OS due to objections about various packages not being 
correct revision.  Seems the code was written to not accept newer stuff 
as well as older.  Tried several ways to make older stuff coexist, but, 
it really did not seem worth the effort.

Since I no longer support GW "professionally" in any manner, it really 
makes no sense for me to get  up to speed on current stuff anyway.  Just 
inertia keeps me going.  There's a pun or something in there somewhere.

I had tried many of the "tried and true" fixes you suggest, but no 
resolution.  The problem has resolved (itself apparently) so no longer 
an issue.  But Thunderbird may be in my future.  The user side seems so 
GWise-y it is uncanny.  Eerie . . . collusive . . .  Imaginary?
