You must first add your mail file database file name to Notes

What happened

You chose a mail command while your mail application was not yet associated with IBM® Notes®.

You also may see this message if you have a different server from your usual home server temporarily selected in your current location and you choose a mail command.

What you can do

  1. If your mail file is not on the Open list (Notes Basic client users: Bookmark bar), add it, and try the mail command again.
  2. If you still get the message, click File > Mobile > Edit Current Location.
  3. Under Servers, enter the name of your home/mail server. If it's already entered, check to see that it's correct.
  4. Under Mail, check the name of and path to your mail file. If it's in a subdirectory, specify your mail file in this format: name of subdirectory\name of mail file. For example:
    mail\dcooper.nsf
  5. Save the current location document.

If this doesn't work, see your IBM Domino® administrator.
