Sometimes during a migration process we need to convert some cc:Mail local data, like private
addresses and archives. To do that we have the nupgrade tool that comes with Notes 5. But it rely
on the existence of configuration files of cc:Mail. So, the only thing we need to do, is give it
that files. The steps are:
1- Append these lines, and adapt to your needs, in WIN.INI file. [cc:Mail] PROGVER=600 ProgramPath=G:\CCMAIL63\CCMAIL INSOVersion=5.1.1 User1Name=FULL CC:MAIL USERNAME HERE User1Dir=c:\path_to_ccmailDataDir\ LastIDUsed=1 LastUserID=1 2- Move the PRIVDIR.INI file to c:path_to_ccmailDataDir. Bellow are a sample PRIVDIR.INI in case you want to create one by exporting data from another program. [Internet] EntryCount=1 Entry1="Felipe Machado Cardoso"
3- Move, or create, the WMAIL.INI file to c:path_to_ccmailDataDir. Bellow are an example. [cc:Mail] SmartIcons=Universal Path=N:\CVRDTU6\CCDATA Name=FULL CC:MAIL USERNAME HERE DDEApps=nsf,nsg,nsh,ntf,ns2,ors,org [cc:Archive] MaxArchive=1 Archive#1=C:\FILE.CCA
On WMAIL.INI you can specify all archives of the user, or during NUPGRADE, specify the custom method and select the archives manually. The User#Name in WIN.INI and Name in WMAIL.INI must be the same. The EntryCount in PRIVDIR.INI must reflect the total number of entries. The same for MaxArchive in WMAIL.INI. NUPGRADE don`t cares about the existance of the name provided on the INI`s if you will only migrate local data.
