replacing a corrupt template on the server

Hi All

My boss fixed a problem onsite the other day and I'd like to know how.

Sorry if this is vague I'm getting this second-hand.  Prob was that user wasn't getting mail.  When they replaced the mail file it wasn't working so had to replace a template on the server.

I googled and found plenty of stuff on replacing designs but not server templates.  Must be the same for any old template - has anyone got a link to detailed instructions.  Much TIA.

Usually it is done by copying the template from other server or install disk

Do you have to take anything offline while you do this?  Any impact on operations?

for mail template:

or iNotes5.ntf

The above is for R5

if it is MD6,
and StdmailR6 or ND6.

U can look for help for detailed explanation of templates.

U can do refresh/replace of design of mail template either from Server or Notes client.
I prefer Server.

Since ur user is working in remote, tell him to do it locally.
