I reinstalled Domino server R5.12. When I attempt to open a mail database I get.."The public key being used is not the one that was certified. How do I fix this?

    Apparently you didn't save/reuse the original cerificates. Do you still have them somewhere? And the original names.nsf? You might be able to fix this if you restore them from a backup.

    Each new installation creates a new certifier id. All other certificates generated on that server stem from that id. When you open a database, the server tells you that the id you currently use does not correspond with the id the server knows from you.

    How did you re-install?  Is it only you that is having this problem, or other users?  Do you have a cert.log?
