The field of messaging has expanded from simple e-mail to
encompass a wide array of message types. Connector for Novell
GroupWise supports the transmission and mapping of different message
types between Exchange and GroupWise. Messages that cannot be
mapped to an analogous message type in the target domain are
converted to e-mail.

The following illustration and corresponding steps detail the
process of sending messages from Exchange to GroupWise.
When a message is sent to Exchange users, GroupWise matches the
domain portion of the message address with the Exchange foreign
domain. (The Exchange foreign domain represents Exchange within
GroupWise, and must be configured in GroupWise.) Next, GroupWise

the API_OUT and ATT_OUT directories, and moves the files over to
the Gw2mex and Gw2mexa queues on the Exchange server.
The connector then converts the message from GroupWise API
format to Exchange format.
The message is then sent to the Exchange MTA to route the
