GroupWise 6.5 comes with GroupWise Messenger.  It is limited to users in
your Novell NDS tree (usually the same as your GroupWise users).  It is
available from anywhere based on a client that is downloaded from its
own web server.  Instant messaging sessions can be archived for use
later.  Its a cool product.  I would be concerned about the use of any
other IM product.  I believe that FirstClass also has an instant
messanging component.

I am far from an expert on this subject, but as a network administrator
I am
very concerned about security issues surrounding instant messaging. Is
anyone else worried?

Here are some links that I've looked at.;jsess
