Archives are often termed as important records. In Novell GroupWise, the archives are usually created to minimize the size of Inbox and save important emails, so that they can be accessed anytime. Archive folder is a separate folder in Novell GroupWise that contains items of the mailbox which are archived by the user. Email clients like MS Outlook save the archives in the mailbox database although the case is totally different with Novell GroupWise email client.
In GroupWise, the archive database is not associated with the user mailbox database and that’s why while migrating from GroupWise to Outlook, administrators have to export archives separately. At times, the GroupWise to Exchange migration tools migrate everything but fail to migrate the archived mails. The technique for exporting archive database is different as the folder structures of both the databases is different and makes it tough for the migration tools to migrate them both simultaneously.
Novell GroupWise creates folder named ˜archive” for each mailbox and creates a database of migrated items. Therefore, it becomes important that archive database also gets migrated easily without loss of important data.
