Use the archive to save emails, telephone messages, appointments, notes or tasks in a special database on your computer/Mac. Archiving saves storage space in your mailbox and keeps it clearly arranged. For example, if you have important information in your mailbox which is irrelevant for your current work you might wish to archive it. Whenever you need to check back you can always view the information and, if needed, also return it back from the archive.

If you wish to archive a message that you sent, you cannot follow the status. If you delete a database file (*.db) in your archive folder, the deleted information cannot be restored.

If several users have their archive files on one computer, GroupWise distinguishes them via their user name and a three-digit identification number. This number can always be determined under Help -> About. It is the character string in the brackets next to your user name.
