After just a couple of hours, I’ve got a Novell GroupWise system running, with which I can experiment a bit and see what it is all about. Some of the terminology used by GroupWise is new to me, so I stumbled around a bit until I could get messages routed to and from the Internet, but it now works,

and the headers look good to me. ;-) The GroupWise client on Windows looks a tad better than it does on Linux and Mac, but the functionality appears to be identical.
