Do new templates on a server have to be certified?

I am using Lotus/Domino R5. I have created a new "standard" mail template, and have placed it on the server; however, I am getting error messages when users other than me use a new form that uses "@MailSend."

I have read somewhere that the template needs to be "certified." Can you help me or point me to any Web sites that may have beginner's info on implementing new templates on a server?

(I have tried certifying it using the server's ID file; however, I get 200 error messages when opening a new memo.)
It is hard to debug this problem, without looking at the template in detail. Perhaps the signature on the design is the problem, but it could be something else. Let me make a general suggestion.

Lotus makes the strong recommendation that users not modify the mail template. The reason is that Lotus reserves the right to change the template in any new version of Notes. You will not get the new template (including bug fixes) if you have modified yours. Or you WILL get the new template and wipe out your changes. I suggest that you look for other ways to solve your problem, other than modifying the mail template.
