Password Protected NSF Files

Note: This procedure is designed to work only with IBM Notes 9.0.1 FP10 Basic and eCapture 4.1.x and later.

If you receive an NSF file that is password protected and includes an ID profile associated with it, do the following:

  1. Create a folder and place the NSF and ID files in it. The discovery will be run on this folder.

  2. Name the ID file the same as the NSF file (for example, ImportantMail.NSF and ImportantMail.ID).

  3. Open a text editor such as Notepad and type the password at the top in the editing window. Do not include any other information in the file.

  4. Save this as a TXT file in the new folder that was created in step 1.

  5. Rename this TXT file with the same name as the NSF file and change the extension to PWD (for example, ImportantMail.PWD).


You should now have a new folder with the NSF, ID, and PWD files in it; no other files should be included. When you discover this folder, (Undefined variable: Primary.Ipro eCapture®) will open the NSF file and find that it is password protected. A pop-up dialog box displays noting that the NSF file is password protected, and the dialog box then prompts for the password. Give eCapture a few seconds to insert the password, then the box will close.
