Are you doing this using Notes R6 client?

Could your iNotes6.ntf be corrupt?

Yes I'm using the R6 client... I've been able to replace the design on several mail files with this template with no problem. I've only ran into two mail files that it fails on. I've tried to replace with other templates but I still get the same message.

It could be that the database is corrupt and that is why I asked you to compact and fixup the dbs..

Thanks guys for the replies. I tried compact and fixup. I've also tried load convert mail\user.nsf *  inotes6.ntf  I've also tried using different templates... On other mail files it works fine.
I'm confused on this one.

OK here is what I've done to get this to work.

I made a new copy of the user.nsf. Quit the server then replaced  the old user.nsf. From there I copied and pasted the messages recieved since the copy. After that I replaced the template with no problem.

Thanks everyone for the help.

HemanthaKumar, I believe you were correct on the database being corrupted so I'm giving you the points.
