Replication problem

Posted on 1999-07-25

I have made modifications to the two locations which I use: Office and Internet. When I'm at the office, I use the database at the server. When I'm home, I use the local mail file, and I use replication to keep them updated.

For my Internet location, I've defined an private e-mail account. The problem is this: When I use the Office-location, and will replicate / update the mail-files, the replicator also tries to retrieve mail from my private e-mail account. I presumed that this retrival should only happen when I used the Internet-location and not while replicating my mail-files (Office-location)?

I have a workaround which I use; I use the "Replicate with options" and replicate only when needed.

As far as I know you "workaround" is the right way of doing it.
On the replication workspace, all email accounts and replicated databases are shown, if you press "Send & Receive mail", Notes tries to get the mail for all databases, the same applies to replication.
If you have, as in your case, an external mail file, I think your workaround is the correct way of doing it.

I dont think so, this text is retrieved from whatever u set in your location doc, if u set it to a name instead of an IP it will use that.
