2.6. Evolution for GroupWise Users

GroupWise users should have little trouble using Evolution to access their GroupWise accounts. Evolution and GroupWise use very similar terminology. Users familiar with one system should be able to learn the other with minimal effort.

Use the configuration assistant to configure Evolution to access your GroupWise system.

  1. To start the assistant, click Preferences+Mail Accounts+Add then click Forward.

  2. On the Identity page, provide your e-mail address in the GroupWise system (for example, joe@example.com) then click Forward.

  3. On the Receiving Email page, select IMAP in Server Type, specify the hostname of your GroupWise server in Host, set the other settings on the Receiving Options page as appropriate for your system, then click Forward.

  4. On the Sending Email page, select SMTP in Server Type, specify the hostname of your GroupWise server in Host, set the other Sending Email options as appropriate for your system, then click Forward.

  5. On the Account Management page, specify the name to use to identify this account on the Evolution Settings page then click Forward.

  6. Click Apply to create the GroupWise account. Your GroupWise mailbox now appears in the list of available e-mail accounts.
