Is there a way to increase the number of characters in your subject line?

In Groupwise, the subject line allows you to enter up to 100 characters. However, the actual physical space of the subject line is longer than 100 charcaters.  Is there a way we can increase the number of charcaters in that subject line?  If so, how?

    What version/SP of GroupWise are you working with?  Things change between versions, including various arbitrary or standards-based limitations.

    The mail standards pretty-much have a total command-line length of 512 bytes, including the command and delimiters, but that can be extended with continuation characters.  I don't know that there's an actual standards-based limit on the length of a subject line, but most mail systems cut you off at somewhere under the 100 characters you're seeing (some chop you off at 80 characters) to make it more readable to the recipient.

    Without knowing what version/SP you're using, it's hard to know where to start looking, to see if you can change that kind of thing.  There are a lot of things you can do to change the interface, but again, how and to what extent depends on your version/SP.
