I have a single Notes user who cannot change their Soft Deletion time-out, since the option is greyed-out.  I've tried refreshing their mail template, fixup, etc. to no avail.

Has anyone seen this symptom before?

Thanks

Haven't seen that before. Is it greyed out under Tools->Preferences?

Soft Deletions are enabled? The user is Manager of the database?

Try compact, maybe the ODS is still in a version that doesn't support Soft Deletions. Just guessing...

Yes, the Tools -> Preferences section is grayed out.

I had performed a compact.  The user did not have Manager access (which I have now changed) nor did they have script rights (which I have also changed).

I will wait to see if this modification has helped.

Solved, that's great!

Did you find it, or why the B?
