I need to copy the mailbox folders of a single GroupWise user to send to someone for troubleshooting.  Does anyone know where these folders are located?

GroupWise doesn't work that way.  The folders are part of a user database.  The messages in the folders are part of two databases and potentially several folders and files in directory called OFFILES.  The message databases are found in the OFMSG directory (there are 253 of them) and there are an equal number of user databases (USERxxx.db) found in the OFUSER directory.

Now if you want to send the messages that are in these folders to another person in the system, you can share the folders with the person and they will be able to see and work on them in their own mailbox.

Lastly, I suppose you could buy a third party utility for about $25 (possibly more) to export he contents of the mailbox to one or more .PST files and then you could send the .PST files to the user for the troubleshooting.

Hope that helps..
