Lotus Notes Mail Backup
I have a lot of messages both in my sent mails and inbox. I will like to back them up on a CD so I can delete the mails to have enough disk quota. Please advise. Regards

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The easier approach is to move your old mail in an archive database.

Notes will create it automatically (from the mailbox model) when you will archive your first message.
It will move all the mail you select (or older than…) from one database (with quota) to an other (archive, without quota, that you could burn on a cd or dvd when you ready)

See “Archive” documents in the help file for more informations and to know how to setup your archive profil (your parameters : archive file name and path, frequency, etc….)

    Here's a step by step walkthrough of the procedure to prepare a notes database for CD ROM (so that it can be read from CD). If you do this to your database, you'll be able to read your old mail directly from the CD provided that you have a Notes client and ID File. When this works, you can simply delete the old mails from your current (live) mail file on the server.
