  • False indicates that MIME items are not converted.


This setting is initially True but persists across Notes® client events. In general, if you change this setting, you should restore it before exiting.

Changes to this property apply only to those items opened by the backend processor after the property has been changed. If a document has already been opened as a NotesItem, changing this property will have no effect on the NotesItem.
