Since the R5 ods is deifferent from R4 it will be difficult for R4 to read the higher version ods. SO issue this command at server console on that specific db

load compact databaseName.nsf -R

And then copy the converted R4 db to client

Hello ashivan,

you have two options:
- either rename your R4 mail file locally to mymail.ns4
- or make a replica or new copy trough Notes client from Domino to local notes data directory (without physical copying mail file located on server).

If your present file transfer was done with ftp then you had to use the image (binary) transfer mode. The default mode is ASCII (text) mode which destroys the transferred nsf files.

Good luck,
zvonko
