We are running a Domino 5 environment and one of our servers fails to run the compact task in the evening.  I have tried scheduling it at a different time and with different parameters (-S 5 and -B).  The notes log will show the compact task launching and compacting mail.box but nothing else.  Any clues on what might be wrong would be greatly appreciated.

Mail.box can be a source of many problems. You could try the following:
1) compact mail.box manually (server off, then open a DOS-box and run "ncompact" or "compact" on a Linux box)
2) stop the server, rename mail.box to mail.box.old or so, then restart the server; Domino will create a new mail.box database

If your server has to handle many mails, you can improve performance considerably when you enable multiple mail.box files (see the server document)

Thanks very much for the help.  I stopped server and renamed mail.box and let system create new one.  Compact starting running as scheduled that night.

Ah! There might be sent or received mails in the old mail.box database, better check that.
