API gateway version 4.1 between Exchange 2000 sp3 and groupwise 5.5 stipping HTML from mail between systems>>HELP

When a message is sent from the Exchange server to the Groupwise, the API gateway strips the HTML tags and sends the message as plain text.

When a message is sent from Groupwise to Exchange, it creates 2 attachments, one plain text with all the HTML tags and the other is the text.  The body of the message is blank.

The rest of the system is running fine and the client is not planning on getting rid of the Groupwise system anytime soon,  they are migrating users slowly over the next year.  

How can I correct the system so that HTML messages are not altered when passed between systems.

The API gateway is version 4.1 and is older than HTML mail.
If you want to exchange HTML mail between your GW system and Exchange, use the Novell GroupWise Exchange Gateway (exgate) it is far more functional (with much less programming) than the API gateway.

Here's a download link: http://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=xtNOWrOwO5o~
Or just search teh Novell Downloads under GroupWise Gateways.

Run the EXGATE on your exchange server and point it to a GW Domain and you are pretty much done, I had one running for years without any problems.

Will this allow the GW server to send messages to the Exchange server as well?  Do I remove the API gateway or keep that installed and fumctioning as well?

Thanks,

Chris,
You can keep your API gateway up, it provides nice functionality for other customization options, but the Exchange Gateway will transfer mail back and forth between systems PLUS it will synchronize address books one way or both ways between your GW and Exchange.

You will be MUCH happier with the Exchange gateway in place.
