MIME to CD error?

Lotus Domino
Hello All, Sometimes, I saw in the Domino log the error message: 11/14/2005 03:00:01 PM MIME to CD error (Process: ?(00000584:0000003C),Database: C:DominoDatamailUserMailBox.nsf, Note: 00000A0E): CVS: Not initialized This error message usually appeared when users opened to read internet email messages or when an agent tried to access the Body field. Please let me know the reason and how to fix this "MIME to CD", "CVS: Not initialized" error? Thanks in advance.

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

Check your server notes.ini file for the following line.
MailConvertMimeonTransfer=1

If it is there, remove the line. It is an old parameter no longer needed, but could cause this issue if present.

    You need to add the following entry to the notes.ini of the server (I would recommend adding it via the Configuration Document so you can easily see the addition). convertor_log_level=10 That setting will eliminate the Mime-CD error messages from the log file.

    Hello All, Thank you for your answers! I've tried all your suggestions; however, none of them fully met my expectation :-(. 1. MailConvertMimeonTransfer: Removing this parameter forces Domino to stop the conversion on incoming and outgoing mail message. That's good. This can not fix the exception when my agent tried to access the Body field of Memo document. "CVS: Not initialized" error still appeared. 2. convertor_log_level=10: Changing log level to eliminate MIME to CD logs writing to the Domino log only while the error still exists. My aim is still allow Domino to convert HTML (MIME) to CD for inbound messages, but without the "MIME-to-CD CVS: Not initialized" error. Please help? Thanks!

    Did you recently upgrade from R5 to R6 or was this a change from one version of R6 to another version of R6? If you recently upgraded to R6, you can see these messages depending on how the mail files were upgraded. There are compact and updall processes that should run after the server is upgraded. What are the person document settings for the user mail files related to internet content? In general, the mime to cd messages do not mean there is an error. It has to do with the way the R6 server reports this information vs the R5 server. In most cases, if you look at the $MIME fields you will see it was properly converted. In general, it just adds entries to the log files and makes people concerned there is an issue. The converter_log_level=10 parameter will eliminate the messages and I'm not sure why Lotus didn't just change the defaults for this parameter. Here is a link on Notes.net specific to this info: http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/nd6forum.nsf/55c38d716d632d9b8525689b005ba1c0/6eef61ee55379f8885256d3c0073d5df?OpenDocument I checked for the MIME and CVS combination and didn't see any specific info with that combination. Have you tried running the R6 compact again to see if the messages go away for the specific mail files?

    Another thought. Is the HTML content english or is it another language? If another language, what is it? Related to the version you are using and whether you recently upgraded there is some feedback related to content type. If non-english, what is the server OS language and Domino server language? In one case, setting the 'LANG=en_US' parameter in the notes.ini caused the messages to stop. However, this might conflict with other things if the server OS and Domino SW are not english.

    Erik, Yes, we upgraded the Domino from R5 to R6 recently and I never saw such message when running R5. However, we also compacted to change all mail file ODS to R6. The mail file I mentioned in the original post is a stand-alone mail database (created using R6 Mail template). Therefore, there is no person document for it. Messages are transfered to this db by a filter we defined in Server configuration document (This is because of a business requirement). My application contains an agent which scans all messages in this mail database to get the message contents. Each time it attempts to get the Body field, this error message appears in the Domino console. Moreover, when it tries to cast the Body field to RichTextItem type, an exception is thrown (obviously, the Body field is not of RichTextItem type because Domino has failed to convert MIME content to RichText). I tried all your suggestions (include adding LANG=en_US param to notes.ini) but it didn't seem to work (we use English). Finally, I came to a decision to disable MIME-to-CD conversion from code by adding notesSession.ConvertMIME = false to the agent code and get the Body content through NotesMIMEEntity object. This worked, I no longer saw MIME-to-CD messages and my application still functioned correctly. However, I'm still wondering about how to eliminate this error message for such cases - when user agents try to access NotesRichTextItem ("MIME_Part" type, containing MIME data), not only in mail databases but also in other Notes databases. I installed a brand new R6 server on my machine to test, deployed the application. The Mime-to-CD message still appeared but without "CVS: not initialzied" and the Body field was successfully converted to RichText. Once again, thank you very much for your answers, I will apply your suggestions to our mail server (also upgraded from R5) to stop these annoying messages.
