Changing a Lotus Notes database mail file from 'archive' to 'mail'

If a Lotus Notes database mail file spuriously shows "Archive" instead of "Mail," this LotusScript code will remedy the problem.

When a Lotus Notes database mail file shows "Archive" contrary to "Mail," you can run this code to change the ArchiveDatabase field value to 0. Simply close the Lotus Notes database and open again. Then, run the script with the user ID.

Dim s As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Set db = s.currentdatabase
Set doc=db.GetProfileDocument("archive database profile") 
doc.ArchiveDatabase = "0"
Call Doc.Save(True,True)
