Hey everyone, we are running gw703 on suse10.1 with API gateway 4.1 on dos. We use this configuration to import our students email addresses from Google into our staff address books which run on GroupWise. The students have there own dummy MTA and PO. This system has worked well for us until we ran into a student who used a period in their email address.

WPC-API= 1.2;
Header-Char= T50;
Msg-Type= ADMIN;
DS-User=
Operation= Add;
Domain= TBIRDSTU;
Post-Office= Students;
Object= STUDENTJ;
Account-ID= XXXXXXX;

;
-END-

To remedy this we were going to change the . to an _ for the objectID and were considering importing the address (address@domain) into the Preferred EMail ID field under internet addressing tab of the external user object.

Does anyone know how to do input the data into the external user object through the API import process?

Thanks,
