Problem with mail.box

Lately, I have been experiencing that after restarting my Domino server, the
reply and forwarded emails are not routed to the server. There's no sign
that it has been sent to the mail.box. No log.

However, once I deleted the mail.box, shutdown the router, recreate the
mail.box. Everything will work.

It seems to me that the mail.box is corrupted.

Any advise so that I don't need to delete the mail.box everytime I restart my server?

Strange. This makes me assume that your mailbox-template already has a problem. There is a mailbox.ntf on the server, you could try to re-install that template?

Thanks! I thought so. actually this question was from a friend. According to her it happens only to the server in question.

You can zip your mailbox.ntf to her if you want to. They are all supposed to be identical. They didn't change their template, did they? C'est bizarre...

I would also reccomend that your friend create more than one mail.box on the server. You can run up to 5 mail.boxes from version R5 on. And get that template replaced. If mail.boxes experience a lot of traffice and dead mail then compacting them once in awhile should help. This should be done with the server offline. Good Luck.

Also, it might be wise to get the lastest R 5 version 5.0.13A, or start to migrate to R 6.

I hope this helps !

Hmm.. R5.12 has issues with stuck sessions from imail users (cellphones, etc),  R5.013A resolves the stuck sessions, but disables the imail client, or it becomes problematic.  six of one, as they say... :)
