Note - For the bulk GroupWise mailbox migration “Shoviv GroupWise to Exchange Server” require that administrator must have proxy access of all the user mailboxes of GroupWise server so that it can access the mailboxes for the migration process.
I am describing here how any GroupWise user can grant proxy access permission of their mailbox to any other user, or how an administrator can grant full access permission of any user to any other user.
