Both in Exchange and Groupwise the term "owner" refers to the actual user on the mailbox. You can give access rights to other users, and even give them "owner rights" or "Full Access Permissions", in exchange the "self" object of the given user will have "Full access" rights listed.  You can give multiple users "full access" rights in Exchange.
I do not see a possibility of giving "owner" rights to another user in Groupwise, you can however set up a "proxy" with some limitations(very similar to send as extended rights in Exchange with some elements of Full Access):
Proxies cannot see your Contacts folder at any time.
Proxies cannot archive items from your mailbox because the archive directory is typically a local directory that a proxy cannot access.
After a proxy user opens a mail message, the message is displayed both to the proxy user and to the mailbox owner as having been opened. If a mailbox owner wants messages that have been opened by a proxy user to be displayed as not having been read, then the mailbox owner can ask the proxy user to mark items as Read Later after the proxy user has viewed a message. There is no way for a mailbox owner to know if a proxy user has opened a message.
