Lotus Notes Inbox question

Hi guys,

We have several users (IBM ...) that delete their entire inbox, instead of deleting just the selected message. Two questions, how do I recover the inbox (messages from inbox are still viewable in "All Documents), and two, how do I prevent this from happening again? Can this action be restricted?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The solution is quite simple.
Just run Domino Administrator and reapply mailfile template
 - type command i server window or console window in Administrator:

load convert mailfilenamewithpath * mailx0.ntf

where x is 5 or 6 - it depends on Domino version.

It will rebuild all views and folders.

Hope it will help
