File extension .GWI
|GroupWise Link Information Format||Novell||Database Files|
The GWI ( .GWI) file extension is associated with the GroupWise Database Shortcut File. It contains shortcuts and attachments from the GroupWise database that was created using Novell's GroupWisemail client. The data stored in a GWI file includes the source GW database address, document type, size, status, and priority number. It also may contain attachments from other applications such as MS Word and Excel.
The GWI file is created when one user sends email from the GroupWise client to another user. It is designed to save the sender's id, recipient's id, timestamp, subject line, text content, and attached files in-between the two mailboxes. Once the mail recipient downloads the GWI file and opens it from within their GroupWise environment, all contents stored within the file are automatically transferred to the recipient's mailbox which enables them to access emails anytime.
Uses and Similar File Extensions
GWI files are primarily used by users of Novell's GroupWise mail client to send emails and attachments to other users. It provides a secure way of transferring emails and other documents within the same organization or between multiple organizations because only users who have access to GroupWise mailboxes can unhide and extract information from the GWI file. Other similar file extensions also used in GroupWise client are .GWS, GWE, .GWV, GWD and .MPA.

After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .GWI) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .GWI extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .GWI file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .GWI extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .GWI extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .GWI file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .GWI file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .GWI file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .GWI file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .GWI file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
