Providing access to select mails to another user

Hello,

I have lotus notes R5 client and I am not an administrator. I am moving from one dept to another dept of the organization.

What I want to do is, provide Read access to select mails in my lotus notes to another user who is moving to my current dept.

I want to provide that person the READ access to all mails in my inbox sent by persons, A, B, C & D.  I dont want to provide the READ access to my entire inbox...

Is this possible and if so, please advise how can I do this

Thanks

No problem. Do the following
- File/Database/New
- Local is ok
- give the db a name, e.g. mailbu.bsf  
- select as template Standard Mail Template (or equivalent)
- OK

Now you have a new empty database on the workspace. If you don't see the workspace, open the Databases Folder, the first one should be the Workspace.

- Open the new database (double-click)
- Open your mailfile
- Open the view All Documents
- Select the documents you want copied (click and drag in the view border at the left)
- Edit Copy
- Switch to the empty mailfile
- Open the View All Documents
- Edit Paste
- Repeat this process for all mails you want to copy (Sent folder?)

Mails will not show up (probably) in the Inbox, but the main thing is that you have a new database with the mails you wanted to be available for your colleague.

Last step:
- File/Database/Access Control
- Add your colleague's name to the list of people who have access to your new db
- at the right, give him/her the access rights required, in your case it's best to use Manager and Person

Just a last question: your Administrator should do this for you, that's what he's supposed to do. Isn't he supportive??

Sorry, won't work or is too difficult. I would like to suggest a different and much easier approach: create a new mailfile, your and his access only, and copy manually all mails form A, B, C and D.

How can I create a new mail file? Since I am not the administrator, will i be able to create one like that? It will really help if you could provide more details on it

Thanks

Create a filter and move only those documents from A,B,C,D to a separate folder(creating filter is simple)... and write a agent to move these documents from this folder to the new mail file which sjef mentioned. This would simplify the whole process, Let us know if u need any more inputs

Partha is right about the administrator....He is too busy with other things that he cannot devote any time for one person's mail backup or so...

Partha, if you say they're always busy, what do they do when everything is ready? Or did they scratch the word "ready" from their dictionary?? I used to be Admin, in the (ahem) old days, but I definitely have "ready" in mine. I prefer the good ol' 80-20 rule, which I explain as 80% of the result for 20% of the effort. I settle for the 80%, and so did my colleagues :)

I state that an Administrator who's too busy is doing the wrong things or the things wrong.

Bro,
It was sarcastic, and i face the same problem with my admins... "we are currently busy" - is the only statement they know

Of course you were sarcastic! And so was I, anyway I tried to be. "Those people" seem to be able to generate their own indispensability: when everything is ready they can always check things again. And again. And ...
