Lotus Notes / Copy – Duplicating prohibtited

Filed under: IBM Related, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — Syed Jahanzaib / Pinochio~:) @ 5:02 PM


In our company, we have IBM Lotus Domino Mail Server which i managed myself. Getting Lotus Domino support is quite a tough job, especially if you dont have any support SLA with the IBM, which generally costs heavy amount in $. Therefore I have to manage things on my own mostly using google and with some common sense lol.

Today we received an email from a valid client, and when we tried to copy or reply him with history, we receive following error.


It also happens if user have selected following in mail delivery options.


Without going in much details (which is already available in greater details on the internet), here is how I managed to sort it.

Requirements: Domino Admin Client.

Open user mail file via Domino Admin Client.
Goto Create / Agent,

As showed in the image below …



Make sure you select FORMULA as shown above, and copy paste following code …

FIELD $KeepPrivate := @DeleteField;

Save it with any name like “remove keep private” and exit.

Lotus Notes Client:

Now open Lotus Notes Client , goto inbox and open the affected email,

Now goto Action / and you will see the newly created agent name. click on it.

As showed in the image below …


it may take just a second or two most, and will remove the restriction🙂

Enjoy !
