We have a two small offices nearby who use the same Notes server as the main office but connect via a fairly low bandwidth line. In order to improve Notes performance for them and to reduce the load on the line, they have been set up to always use a local mail file, which replicates regularly in the background, instead of opening their mail file directly on the server.
This has been working fine for a month or two but just recently four users, in both offices, have had problems. The replication has simply stopped working for no apparent reason. Generally they can go to the Replicator and click Start and manually replicate but until they do this the mail does not get sent or received. One user could not even replicate manually. It gives no error messages, there is nothing unusual in the log file, and nothing has been changed about the configuration of these desktops - it just stopped working.
They are using Notes 4.6.2a client on Windows 95, mail template mail46.ntf, and the server is release 4.6.3b running on an NT machine.
Has anybody seen this before and do you have any ideas why it is happening??? And how to stop it from happening again?
