"Minimum User Access" allowing others to read e-mail


GroupWise 6 SP 1 stand alone GWCheck:
To run PROXYMINRESET, run the stand alone GWCheck, click on the MISC tab and type in the option (eg: PROXYMINRESET) in the field under Support Options.

GroupWise 5.5 SP 5 stand alone GWCheck:
GroupWise 5.5 Enhancement Pack SP 4 stand alone GWCheck:
To run PROXYMINRESET do the following steps:
1-  Use PROXYMINRESET switch
Create a text file called GWCHECK.CFG in the directory where GWCHK32.EXE is being run.
Inside the GWCHECK.CFG file type the word: PROXYMINRESET
2-  Run GWCheck with these options:
Post Office, Analyze/Fix Databases, Content, Fix Problems, Databases: User.

Note: PROXYMINRESET - Removes all minimum access records.

PROXYMINRESET has been updated for GroupWise 6 Support Pack 2 to be able to find <ALL USER ACCESS> (the old string used for minimum user access).  This fix is available in GWENN3.NLM dated 1/2/2002 or newer.


Note:  If the PROXYMINRESET does not appear to work, do a structural rebuild on the user that is having the issue.   Also try removing the users from proxy access, exting GroupWise and re-adding them with their rights.
