Categories (discussed more fully in Chapter 5) provide the ability to
Figure 2.7. An Urgent category is used to mark a message needing immediate attention. Categories display in different colors in GroupWise.
You can create as many categories as you want. To change a message's category, or to add more categories, right-click any message, select Categories from the pop-up list, and then click the category or choose the "More " option.
My Subject is an interesting new feature that allows you to change the subject of any message you've received to one that might make more sense or assist you in message management (such as changing the subject to one that will activate a rule).
My Subject is discussed in Chapter 8 .
To change the subject of an email message, double-click the message and select the Personalize tab. Then enter a new subject and click the Close button.
The From Drop-down List
Because GroupWise allows access to multiple mailboxes (your corporate mailbox and a personal Internet mailbox, for example), the From feature was added, which allows you to easily select which mailbox you want the recipient to see as the message being sent from (Chapter 3 provides more detail on how to do this).
The Address Selector was added to allow quick access to addresses while composing a new message. When you click the Address button of a new message, the Address Selector is launched (see Figure 2.8).
Figure 2.8. The Address Selector is used to quickly find message recipients.
This is the same information in your address books, but it's accessed much quicker than launching the full Address Book.
Address Book Enhancements

Adding a new contact opens a much more detailed and information-packed contact-management dialog box, as shown in Figure 2.9.
Figure 2.9. The GroupWise 6.5 New Contact dialog box has several fields for contact management.
It is now possible to track much more information about a particular contact, such as personal information, comments, and advanced security information (certificates), than was previously available.
You can use categories for your contacts by selecting the Categories button at the bottom of the New Contact dialog box.
Additional security is available in GroupWise 6.5 in the form of encryption and digital signatures. (These topics are discussed in more detail in Chapter 8.) The use of certificates and public/private keys is required for this feature, which

iCal Internet Appointments
iCal is an Internet standard for appointments, and GroupWise 6.5 provides the ability to send appointments to Internet recipients in this format. If the receiving system is also "iCal aware," the appointment should be added to its calendar system as an actual appointment. Systems that are not iCal capable will simply display the appointment as an email with the appointment information (date, time, and so on). We will discuss this feature in more detail in Chapter 7, "Group Calendaring and Task Management."
