Currently running GW2014 with maintenance on our GW licensing, which
gives us access to GMS and Messenger as well.

It has been decided (opposed vehemently by me) to move our file / email
access to the 'cloud' and will be leaving GW. I am not happy about
this decision at all.

We are supposedly going to stagger the migration (starting some time in
2017), but I'm wondering what will happen with our Groupwise licenses?
The maintenance expires Dec 31. I'm wondering if we don't renew
maintenance for the next year, will we still be able to use Groupwise,
or GMS and Messenger for that matter, or not?
