I have a user that consistently manages to modify the ACL on their mail file, is there anyway to prevent this?
We are running domino and notes 6.5.1 and the users current access level is Editor.

A user with Editor rights in his mailfile can never adapt the ACL. It might be the Adminp process that changes the ACL all the time. Open the Admin Requests database and look what actions are open.

I can see any evidence in the admin requests DB, but then the ACL was modded around 3 weeks ago, and I assume the admin4.nsf will only log actions for 2 weeks?

We have several users that have supervisors or colleges which are allowed access to their mail files (in case of absence etc) but this is only only user we have this problem with. The log on the mail file shows that the server changed the user in the ACL at 04:00am so it must be the admin process, how do I stop this happening? is there any reason why it only occurs on this one users mail file and not others?

The admin4.nsf will be cleared in the replication process. Look at the Replication settings, Space Savers, Remove documents not modified after... 90 days? Then the old documents will be removed after 3 months.

There must be an action in the database to "correct" the ACL. Try to find it.
