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

Not sure, but you can get creative with Lotuscript. I haven’t tested this, but you could create an agent and have it monitor a the trash folder for “new” documents. The document won’t be new, but it’ll be new in the view.

Once you find a new document, you trap the current user and date/time and then write it to a new field in the document.

I don’t know if it’ll work. but it’s worth a try.

    You have said they are using the same ID... How can you tell which user is deleting stuff when they will be logging in as the generic user?

    Assuming you have a group of part-time users all using the same PC, why not have seperate location documents for that PC that restrict access to a specific id, but all have the same mail database specified. Each user then logs in with their own id and can send emails from that mailbox. Any replies to that email will come back to that mailbox. This way you then have the ability to track who is doing what. Tony

    This may be a little drastic, but why not just remove the user's right to delete documents in the ACL?

    You want users to be able to delete emails because if they dont then the administrators have to deal with the increase in size etc..... Once they are logged in using different ID's then you can analyze the logs etc and see the database infromation there etc.
