Forwarding "As Attachment" from GroupWise 6.x

Recommended Posts

Forwarding "As Attachment" from Novell GroupWise 6.x is generally the best way to Report your spam from GroupWise if you don't have a SpamCop Email System Account (if you do have such an Account, just drag the spam message(s) to your Held Mail mailbox/Folder). "As Attachment" is extremely important, as SpamCop's Parser can't do anything with GroupWise in-line forwarded e-mails (the default action) - it needs full Headers, including Received Header Lines. The following step-by-step instructions will walk you through the process.


1. A system running Windows and GroupWise 6.x client (can not be done using the web interface for GroupWise otherwise know as GroupWise Webaccess)

2. A SpamCop Account entitled to submit spam via email, and an associated Submit Address (submit.16charANcodeNMBR[at]spam.spamcop.net)

3. One or more spam email message(s) you wish to Report

Instruction Steps:

1. From the GroupWise item List, select the e-mail(s) you wish to Report (multiple messages can be selected with Shift-Click, Ctrl-Click, etc. as normal in Windows).

2. Select the Action Menu.

3. From the Action Menu, select the "Forward As Attachment" Item.

4. Send the message to your Submit Address submit.16charANcodeNMBR[at]spam.spamcop.net (easiest if you have a shortcut for that Address in your Address Book).

5. Wait for the Tracking URL which will let you Report that (or the first) message either in a reply email or as the "Report spam Now" Link on your SpamCop Parsing and Reporting Service webpage.

Those who wish can also "grab" the headers directly. Open the message in a new window. Then select View-->Attachments, then context-click each attachment to View-->Attachment until you can open and view the 822 file. You can then copy and paste the headers and necessary. I apologize for the vagueness of the above instructions, but you get the general idea and should be easily able to go from there.
