What is the best way to delete a user in Domino 8.5.x? I setup a test Domino server to learn more about it. I setup a bunch of users but forgot to create the ID files. So, I want to do it again. I deleted the accounts, and also used the advanced settings to tell Domino to delete the databases. Now, my Domino server keeps reporting errors and I cannot recreate a user with the same name. So, I want to start over. When I want to delete an account, what is the best way to delete an account so that I can create new users with the same name if I want to?
