So.. now in my 3rd day of testing my messenger install and the
authentication has me stumped.

In my GroupWise client, I now have an option to start messenger when I
start
GroupWise. (just like notify)

Right now messenger is asking for the NDS password.

Is there a way to configure messenger to use the GroupWise
authentication
and start immediately (just like notify)?

Thanks again for your input.

Note: The following is from the messenger client help file when I
searched
on "password"...
"The username and password you use to log in may or may not be the
same as
your GroupWise username and password, depending on how your GroupWise
system
has been set up. Check with your system administrator."

Well I'm the admin.. and obviously I'm clueless... :)
