Groupwise grew out of WordPerfect Office, which was a shared-file
type of system, but as I understand, Groupwise has been a real client/
server setup for years now. (Novell claims it'll run on windows, netware,
and unix/linux).  Since it does have an "Internet mail" connector, or
whatevern Novell calls it, it should be able to interface with Mailman

Either way, I don't think that mail transport probably is as much of
a problem as  address book integration is.   (I like the idea of putting
the mailman addresses in their own subdomain.)

All this is, of course, conjecture on my part.
