Chapter 10. Remote Access > Using GroupWise in Remote Mode - Pg. 204

You can then use the GroupWise client to read, delete, and reply to messages in the remote copy (all without ever connecting to the Internet or to the GroupWise system via a modem). The next time the client is connected to the master mailbox (when you get back to the office), the GroupWise client will prompt you that items are pending in the remote mailbox.
