Try replacing the design with appropriate Mail template.

If the above didn't work, then from the Db properties, in the 4th tab(Launch tab), select the inbox.

Also - make sure that the Inbox is the Default view.

I hope this helps !

It's the 5th tab, and MailFS should be the frameset. It depends on the version of Notes you're using...

If the folder is corrupted, it might also cause the problem. So, you might wat to try to remove that folder to see if the DB is openned at the last view. Before removing the corrupted folder, it would be good if we could create a new folder and move the content of the corrupted one to the new created folder.

Goodlucks!

Hi damixa,

If the mailFS is not opening, then one or more design elements in that frameset cannot be resolved, so the frameset aborts.  This is usually caused by the inbox folder (as mentioned before) not being there, or has become corrupted.  Times when I found this problem it was because someone modified the inbox design, and the "do not allow design refresh/replace" flag was set  so that design changes didn't update the customizations.

This sometimes causes duplicate inbox folders.  

If you have access to designer, you can open a replica of that particular mail database and see if there are flags, duplicate or missing elements.

You can also use scanEZ from ytria. com to explore the mail database properties.

A big clue is if you open the mailFS in designer and you see one or more DARK GRAY boxes where an outline or folder should be.

Regards!
