    Hello everybody


    I got a problem with my system again. I am running Lotus Domino 5.0.8 on a Windows 2000 Server. My clients are running Lotus Notes 5.0.5. (Yes, I know its stoneage but i am going to upgrade to 6.5 soon, probably during christmas)


    The Domino server works great all day, but at the strike of 04:00 when thee server starts compacting, the mail.box gets corrupted.


    This results in mail.box getting read-only, and users can't send or receive mail. The only solution I have seen is to restart the Domino server.


    This started abtout 2 weeks ago. I entered mail.box and deleted all dead mail stored there. But still this happens, at least 4-5 times a week. I see why it happens, but my question is how can I prevent it from crashing my Domino server??


    I guess it is because of the same problem some of my users have been getting mails they cannot open. They get an error message saying: "The object store note that is used by this note was not found. Run the object store collect task on this database".

    Is this because of the mail.box keeps getting corrupt? How do I run the object store collect task on a database??


    Have a nice sunday, everyone!

    Happy Sunday! :)

    Honestly I think this is sort of a dead end road. It's like you are trying to fix something that really just needs to be upgraded or converted to an Exchange server. It sounds like there is some type of bug. Generally what you look for is to see if there is any type of update/upgrade to fix these types of issues.

    In such situation below steps can be helpful...

    Run Fixup command line tool (fixup -f)

    Load fixup -i mail\xxxx.nsf

    Fixup command line tool checks all documents in the database.

    Run Compact command line tool (compact -i -c -d -K)

    Load compact -c -i mail\xxxx.nsf

    See more helpful solution found in Internet, but it is not freeā€¦
