The IBM Notes/IBM Domino IMAP interface is designed to allow a user access to their mail file via the IMAP interface. In order to access the NSF file mailjrn.nsf, it is necessary to set mailjrn.nsf as the BarracudaMailArchiver user email database. Note that the Mail Archiver database template is based on the standard mail archive template and requires only a few changes to allow access via IMAP. There are two changes: the addition of folders expected by IMAP, and the addition of logic to copy all messages to the Inbox folder which IMAP reads.
Log in to the IBM Notes Client Console, and verify Journaling is capturing emails and that the journal file mailjrn.nsf can be opened from the BarracudaMailArchiver account. If IMAP is not enabled, run the following command from the IBM Notes Client Console to enable IMAP on the Journal file mailjrn.nsf:
load convert -e mailjrn.nsf
Step 1. Load the Journal/Application into IBM Domino Designer
Use the following steps to load the journal database/application into IBM Domino Designer.
1a. Log in to IBM Domino Designer, and click Open Application:
1b. Expand the bookmark for the mailjrn database, and click Folders:
1c. IMAP requires the presence of the Sent Items and Drafts folders. If these folders are present, go to Step 2. Create Agent. If they are not present, complete steps 1d and 1e.
1d. Click New Folder, and in the Create Folder dialog box, enter Sent Items in the Folder name field:
1e. Click OK. The Sent Items folder is added. Click New Folder, and in the Create Folder dialog box, type Drafts. Click OK to add the folder.
Step 2. Create Agent
Use the following steps to create the agent to copy all messages to the Inbox folder to allow access by IMAP.
2a. Expand Shared Code, click Agents, and click New Agent in the center pane:
2b. The Agent dialog box displays:
2c. In the Name field, type the following value: Barracuda Mail Archiver Copy to Inbox
2d. In the Comment field, you can optionally enter a comment to describe the agent. In the Runtime section, set the Trigger to On event, and select After documents are created or modified:
2e. Click the Close ( ) icon to save your changes; close the dialog box. The Agent displays in the right pane:
2f. In the right pane, from the drop-down menu, select Simple Action; a warning dialog displays. Click Yes to save your changes and close the warning dialog. At the bottom of the Agent view, click Add Action; the Add Action dialog box displays:
2g. From the Action drop-down menu, select Copy to Folder; the available folders display:
2h. Click Inbox, and then click Add to save your changes and close the dialog box. The Agent displays the new action:
2i. Close the Agent; a warning dialog displays. Click Yes, and then close IBM Domino Designer.
Step 3. Update the Mail File Value
Use the following steps to change the mail file value from its existing name to mailjrn.
3a. Log in to the IBM Domino Client, and open the name and address book entry for the BarracudaMailArchiver account. Click on the Person name in the view to access the edit mode:
3b. In the Mail section, note the current value of Mail file, then change the value to mailjrn:
3c. Save and close the view.
Step 4. Set Privileges
Use the following steps to verify the Access Control List entries for the BarracudaMailArchiver account on the mailjrn.nsf file have the same privileges as the BarracudaMailArchiver account on the original mail database.
4a. Log in to the IBM Domino Client, and open the Files tab. Right-click mailjrn.nsf, and click Access Control - Manage; the Access Control List dialog box displays:
4b. If the BarracudaMailArchiver account does not display, click Add at the bottom of the screen and add the account to the database file. Click OK to save changes and close the Access Control List.
Test Your Settings
Open an email application that supports IMAP, and verify that the BarracudaMailArchiver account can be read and that the Inbox contains the records from the mail archive file. The mailjrn.nsf file Agent runs on a schedule specified by the IBM Domino Server (the default is every 30 minutes and can be set to a minimum of 5 minute intervals), therefore messages may not be immediately available. To force the Agent to run immediately, from the Domino Console, run the following command:
Tell amgr run mailjpn.nsf 'Barracuda Mail Archiver Copy to Inbox'
