GroupWise 6.5 Mailbox Statistics

NOS:  Novell NetWare 5.1 SP6
Email:  GroupWise 6.5.2

Scenario:  Need detailed information on users mailbox.  Ran Mailbox/Library Maintenance/Mailbox Statistics for the user and gwckeck.log was auto emailed upon completion.  I am trying to determine EXACTLY how the utility is reporting each statistic.  For instance, under Items Breakdown|Mail the report shows 3,942 'In' emails, however there are nowhere near 3,942 emails in the persons In Box.  The person has access to several other users Shared GroupWise folders.  Is it possible the statistic reflects all of the other users In box mail as well?  I have scoured the web for an explanation of how each statistic is tallied but no luck.

Below is a part of the email attachment:

The statistics include items in cabinet folders (and other subfolders as well) not just items in the mailbox. Make sure you've looked in all folders (and subfolders.)

If that still doesn't account for it, you might want to run some maintenance tasks on the mailbox, starting with analyze/fix databases. (Don't use Recreate user database, that's a last resort for recovering a seriously messed up mailbox.)


I'd also suggest updating your GroupWise, SP2 is pretty old.

Thanks Bill.  Can you point me to the documentation that explains this?  You get the points.  A search of NetWares download site came up empty on patches or updates for GW 65 other than Clients SetupIP.  It looks like SP2 is the most recent SP.

Regards,
Gary

SP2 is a couple years old, I'm afraid. I'd suggest you go to SP6, available here...

Here's the documentation on running user maintenance tasks.
