Hi All,

I'm selectively converting our users to the R7 mail design and am running into the issue of old notices re-appearing in the "New Notices" pane of the calendar.  For most of our users this isn't a big deal, however one of our VIP's has noticed this happening and brought it to my attention.

Has anyone else seen this happen or know of a fix for it?

Thanks!

do a replace design again, and also check to see if this is not a repeating Notice that may be corrupted.

   
I hope this helps !

Thank you for your advice, however it is doing this on all mailboxes however, not just the one.

How do you do the design convert?

So far it has been opening the user's mailbox manually with my admin ID and replacing the design.  I've been doing it this way as it's just been one mailbox at a time as their Notes clients have been upgraded.

I guess I could try doing some conversions with the load convert command on the domino console and see if it makes a difference.  Do you have any suggestions?

correct, you have to use "convert" utility, not replace design. don't forget to stop the router first :)

Do you mean to tell me that in order to convert one mailbox I need to stop our mail router?  Wow, that's inconvenient.

it is only takes a couple minutes.
otherwise, when you run convert utility or doing manual design replace, there is a chance that during this process router will deliver a message into user mailbox . with partially changed design new message may never get into Inbox (although it would be in all documents view) or you might get into some other issues.
It is not a hardcore requirement, it is more of best practices
