*.ID files..mine did not come up..On one machine, from workspace, File..open database..selected my mail database and id, doubleclicked, my mailbox opened with all mails in red color...how is it possible..My question is
...is it possible for me to setup from my pc anything so that nomatter
what, others will not be able to open my mails..., they shd be prevented from opening my mail database....(I am
not the lotus administrator, so solutions from administration point of
view will be difficult for me to implement)..
Pls help?

Thanks

First of all check your acl, to see who all got access to your db. Mostly it would be you a manager and some admin group and server group. Default would be no access. Remove any other entries that you don't want to deny access for.

Then select advanced tab and set "enforce consistent acl", this will ensure that the acl is kept intact in all local replicas.

About you opening mail in other machine shows all msgs unread. It is nothing that you should be worried, because unread count is maintained on local machine.

I had already checked the ACL..It lists only the following:
Default, CertAdmins, My id, LocalDomainServers, MailAccess, OtherDomainServers, MailServer.  

Also, it is not me opening mails in other machine..the team member can open my mails in his machine..by going through the process I mentioned above..but his machine doesnot have my id file, it still opens..I want to block him and any others accessing my mails...not sure though, but has it to do something with certificates or agents?

That's your problem - Default access should be No access.
Change it on the Server and your problems should be solved.

I hope this helps !

Hello Kamur,

beside that unread marks are not always reliable indicators whether a document is changed or not it is not the right place to look for document changes.

Generally you look into database properties dialog in the second tab marked with an i char for Activity/UserDetails Therein you will find (when observation is activated) last changes in chronological order.

Also this documents with the unread mark you can inspect for this two fields: $UpdatedBy and $Revisions
The last entry in $UpdatedBy is the last changer and the last entry in $revisions is the last change time.

And: Don't Panic :)

Well if Default is Editor, anyone can come into your database. Just change it to No Access.
