Problems open a mailfile using shift+ctrl

Hello Experts!

I have reader access to a mailfile on a 6.5 Domino server. When i click Open MailDb in the users person document the mailbox shows up, and i can read everything. However, i need to get to the $Contacts view so i try to click Open MailDb while holding shift+ctrl to be able to see all views. However, when i do so i get an error message: You are not authorized to perform that operation.

Why? It works on most other mailfiles, but not on this one.

Is there another way to get to the $Conatacts view?

Please assist!

When you already opened the database, you hold ctrl+shift, then click on View/Goto... All internal views will be shown.
