I don't usually blog about work...

...but you never know, this might get me some hits.

There's an interesting little bug in Notes mail 8.0/8.5.

On some clients, whenever you open mail, the following error dialog pops up: "Notes Error: Specified command is not available from the workspace"

This is a nuisance error; it doesn't appear to have any impact on the client.

There are precisely 2 related threads in the Notes/Domino 8.0 forums. There are none in the Notes/Domino 8.5 forums. There are no solutions.

I think I've found one, though.

The error seems to be related to a database launch property, "Restore as last viewed by user." Switch this off, the dialog goes away. Of course, I've only been able to test this on my computer, I need to repeat the test on other machines that have this problem.

Is that what causes that? Arggg it's been so intermittent I haven't been able to diagnose it.

If I'm right, it's a bad recorded last state that causes that blip. Switching off the "last viewed" property clears it, and everything is fine again after it's switched back on. It might happen again, though. Leaving it switched off should solve the problem permanently.

Did you convert to the new 8 on disk file structure?

Yeah, a few weeks after installing 8 on the servers. If you're running 8.0.1 or 8.0.2 without the latest fix-pack, though, there's a bug in compact -c -i that can corrupt a database (-c alone is OK).

Do you have an IBM link to that info?

I am having crazy corruption lately!
