Short Description: Controls the alerts send from McAfee GroupShield for Lotus Domino


GroupShield sent alerts to Administrators with the message "Unable to extract file from Note" for any kind of unknown error that occurred while attempting to extract a file from a Notes file.

This Patch resolves this issue by treating such Note files as unscannable and Administrators will no longer get the old alert notification. Instead they will receive alerts for "unscannable files".

If you do not wish to receive these alerts, the generic Alert may be turned off by entering the following ini setting into the Notes.ini, Ensure that there is a carriage return at the end of the line otherwise Domino will not pick up the setting:


Represents: Sender, Recipient, Administrator, Other.
Last digit should always be 0.
* 1 means that the Alert will go to the person
* 0 means that no Alert will be sent to the person.
The Other can not be specified and should always be set
to 0 any other value will not be valid.

To completely turn off the Generic Alert set all values to 0.
