Groupwise 6.5 reply address formatting problem

Posted on 2007-09-28

Some (not all) of my groupwise users are sending mail with a reply-to address in the following format (including the quotes):


Our groupwise server (running on Netware) hosts a secondary domain - the primary domain is hosted in our parent company in Austria.  Our WAN connection consists of 2 T-1 MPLS lines with VPN internet backup; from within the network, it behaves just like a LAN.  For the purposes of this discussion, the primary domain's internet addressing is:, while ours is  Every user gets a gateway alias in the format: firstinitial.lastname, and the "Email address" field on the General-Identification Tab in ConsoleOne is always

So, for the following fictional user Bob Smith:

alias = b.smith
Domain = DO-US

His reply-to address looks like:


Now for the interesting part:  this reply-to address is only created when the user sends email to another groupwise user with their or address.

For example: Bob Smith needs to send an email to Wolfgang Schneider.  If Bob selects Wolfgang from the groupwise address book, it will always work.  If he sends the email to "", then Wolfgang's reply will be sent to the address above.  On the other hand, if Bob sends to Wolfgang's personal address (say, then the reply address will be "", which is what we want.

I hope my explanation will make some sense - my head is spinning trying to keep all of this straight.  

I appreciate any suggestions you may have.  Thanks.

    You need to set up Internet Addressing. I don't have a GroupWise-enabled ConsoleOne in front of me, but from what I recall, go into ConsoleOne, select the GroupWise Domain, and then go up to Tools, I think. On one of the pull-down menus you should find Internet Addressing.

    That needs to be set up for the Domain, probably.
