Coping the folder view and mails into other user database.

Hi experts

I am working with Lotus Domino and Lotus Notes client 6.5.5, and I need to copy from one user database the user defined folder structure as well the mails inside each folder into another user database.
Do you have any script to do it? I tried a new replica, an archive procedure.. without successful result.

Thanks in advance,

Hi serco_it,
If you HAVE enabled folder references in your mail files, then the replica>>(using space savers to select documents in folders)
>>to  create a new copy and make the copy a template
>> to replace the design of the target mail file to copy the folders,
Then run a simple agent to select all documents in the TEMPLATE ALL VIEW, and copy them to the target database.
Run updall, and viola!

All copied documents appear in their correct views.

I think this link will explain how to do folder references retroactively:

This one does a script to turn on folder references -- but you have to search through and read the entire solution:
