"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

When you say folder is locked do you mean in the Domino Administrator Application Files view or in a Lotus Notes client mail file ?

If in Admin App then this means that some directory level permissions have been applied to the folder or a file exists with the name foldername.acl

You can right click folder and select Manage Directory ACL to see what permissions have been applied.
