Conversation Threads are not grouping for certain email threads. However, new or recent emails do group properly. Symptom

Conversation Threads do not group for certain email threads


If the mail file resides on the Domino server, by default, Lotus Notes will only group email threads up to 7 days.

If the mail file resides locally (i.e. local replica), by default, Lotus Notes will only group email threads up to 30 days.

Resolving the problem

The default behavior can be changed by using the notes.ini variable:

MAX_DAYS_FOR_THREAD_CONVERSATIONS=x (where X is the number of days conversation threads will group).

This notes.ini variable can be used in the Lotus Notes local notes.ini, or the Domino server's notes.ini.

However, the value should not exceed 30 (or 30 days) on the Domino server, for performance reasons.

On the local Notes client, you can set this value up to 365 (or 365 days).

Default value:



UI equivalent:
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
