The user has to accept the updated certificate.  If you only sent it via e-mail, then it won't be available to the user to accept!  As long as the local cert isn't updated, it will be impossible to access the mail file, catch-22.  (I have seen some situations where this was somehow allowed, don't understand why.)

Anyway, get the new cert to them via the network or via a floppy/CD, and all will be well.

Whenever you recertify the user, the expiration date is updated when user tries to access the server.. This entirely taken care by adminp..And user sees a msg in the status bar about the update

In your case I believe the certification is done either on wrong copy or user is using some different or backup id... IN that case you have to manually send it to him either by floppy or put it on a file share..

A new TA has been added to EE: Lotus Domino Admin (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Lotus_Domino_Admin/).

Since it's still rather empty we're looking for content for this TA. This should offer visitors a better chanche of finding answers to their questions.

This question, though not posted in a wrong TA, was a typical Lotus Domino Admin question. Therefore I'm moving it from Lotus Notes/Domino TA to Lotus Domino Admin TA.

Another issue I have found is that if you recertify/recreate the user and they can access the Lotus servers OK but can not get into their mail file, you will need to remove their name from the ACL of the mail file and then re-add it with the appropriate access.  Just something that needs to be done.  Be careful of encrypted mail documents, as the new certified ID may not have access to these mails.
