Odd Bug.. R6.5.5 POP mail being pushed to server mail file instead of local.

Hi Folks.

Wonder if anyone has come across this one yet.  I have Windows XP, R6.5.5 Admin/Designer/Client running with different locations for pop/smtp mail as opposed to domino mail.

Lately, when I replicate to get my pop mail (and valuable EE messages)  the new mail ends up on the Server mail file rather than the local.

Location document specifies local, send mail directly to the server, and has the local mail path and filename for the local replica of my mail file.

Oddly enough, this seems to ONLY happen when I change the default workspace to Bookmarks, when I change it back to workspace, mail gets delivered to the local mail file.

Any ideas?

DO you have the R 6.5.5 Client fix installed ?

have you talked to IBM about this?

They release client fix packs without really having any announcements, and on an as needed basis.

BTW R 6.5.5 FP2 is out for the Server.

I hope this helps !

Hmm.. I don't think so, but nothing on the fix list for this in the fix pack.
No, just ran across it while I was playing with toolbars and the bookmarks.

But, confirmed, when you use Bookmarks as your default, the mail file defaults to the server copy and not the local.  All replications then go to the server copy of the mail file.

Really funny, I didn't see any mail until I opened the server replica, then saw a few dozen EE posts probably from a few days back.

Just an update, I also tried stacking the replica icons differently... pop/internet mail ended up on the server mail file.

Never seen this, never use the Bookmarks (awful things!).

I'm sure this doesn't help !

Well, so far you both are useless :)    And I'm not going to upgrade to Notes 8.3 ;))))

Create a pop mail location, accounts (POP/SMTP) and a local replica of your mail file.
Send and receive mail and see that it arrives in the local replica.
Switch to bookmarks as your worksplace, with your pop mail location as the main location.
Once you do that, Bookmarks shows you your server mail file and not the local, regardless of what location you have selected and are using.

And all mail is delivered there regardless of what your location document says.

Odd that sent mail still goes where you want it to go..?

To update this question, after a bit more testing I found:

If you have a pop account or two configured, and still have access to your Notes Server when you're in the pop location, and have the mail file field in the location document as: mail\thisdatabase.nsf, rather than c:\lotus\mail\thisdatabase.nsf, whatever mail file is top on the replica stack gets the mail, even if you specify "local" as the mail file location.

If you use welcome pages, and even if you specify the location document as local, it will deliver to the server database copy, regardless of which database is on top of the replica stack.  The welcome page simply moves the server copy front.
