Many existing documents in my organization are in WPS-PLUS and
WordPerfect format. What support is there for them?
Support for WPS-PLUS documents and messages is provided in the form of
converters that temporarily convert such items to rich-text format when you
open them for reading or editing. When you close such an item, it is converted
back to its original format, together with any changes you have made. (You can,
of course, use the Save As option to save the file in a different format on
Support for messages created using the ALL-IN-1 integration for
WordPerfect Version 4.2 or later is provided in the same way as for WPS-PLUS
Documents in WordPerfect format are not converted, but are opened with
whatever application is associated with WordPerfect format on your PC.
To use Microsoft Word to open WordPerfect items, you must have Word
installed with the appropriate WordPerfect option (provided in the default
My colleagues and I use Office Server Time Management to arrange
meetings. Does the MAPI driver support Time Management meeting requests?
You must use the VT interface to arrange meetings, but you can use the MAPI driver
to read meeting requests. The Office Server properties page (References tab)
has an option that allows you to leave Time Management messages
with the status UNREAD. This allows you to use the Office Server VT interface
to re-read these messages, answer them, and have meetings automatically
scheduled in your calendar.
If you do not use this option (not the default), the MAPI driver treats
these meeting requests as simple messages, and sets their status from UNREAD to
READ when you read them. This means that when you subsequently use the VT
interface to read these requests, you cannot take advantage of the automatic
reply and scheduling options that are available when you read a new meeting
Can I use Exchange folders as well as Office Server folders?
Yes. If your messaging profile contains both COMPAQ Office Server MAPI
Driver and Exchange, you can view Exchange folders and personal folders as well
as your Office Server drawers and folders. You can also move documents and
messages between these different folders.
How long does it take to install the COMPAQ Office Server MAPI
Installing the MAPI driver is very simple and takes only a few minutes.
