I get the following message when I open Lotus Notes: "One or more certificates in your Notes User ID are expiring. To renew your certificates, choose File -- Security -- User Security and click Renew in Security Basics."

My Lotus Notes is a stand alone version.  I am not connected to a Domino Server and I do not have an Adminstrator who can issue a new certificate for me.  How can I fix this problem myself?  I have gone to File>Security>User Security>Your Identity>Your Certificates and it looks like my expiry date is 13/08/2008.

You can't.

If you have access to a Domino server and the original Certid, then you could do something.

If this is an old corporate email account then there is nothing that you can do, unless you want to download the Domino server Eval, build a server, and then add in the new User ID into the ACL of your database.

Do you have acess to someone who uses Domino ?

I hope this helps !

I know people who work in a corporate environment and who use Lotus Notes, but how could they help me?  What would I need to send them and what would I need to ask them for?  Also once I have whatever they send, what do I do with it?  If I can't get help from someone with a Domino server, what other options do I have?  Do I need to remove Lotus Notes from my computer all together and load a brand new version?  Also, what is an ACL?

You would need to see if they can
1) Open the file locally
2) If they have maanger access, can they create an ID for you, and then remove it from their address book.

Once you have the New ID and password, they can set up the ACl so that you can access your mail again ( for about 2 years or however long the iD is good for )

The down side, is that you may not be able to access encrypted mail that you have.
If the while local mail DB is encrypted, then you may have no recourse at all unless you talk to whomever originally set up ypur Notes ID.

I hope this helps !
