    When I replace the design of all our R5 mailboxes with the R6 NTF,
    what will dissappear by this?
    Private folders where users put their mails in?
    Extra coloums in Views (like attachment name/size) I have put into the
    R5 NTF long ago?
    The wonderful colour settings I have designed in my mailbox?
    Will all agents I have created in R5 still run in R6?

    How long will the replace design for about 250 NSFs with average 30 MB
    size run? Is one evening enough if I want to be home before midnight?

    Thank You

    Those will remain.
    They should.
    Depends on your machine's specs :)

    Most of your questions were answered by the previous responce. I just
    wanted to add theat the nconvert task can be run when the ND6 Domino
    server is pered down. Its runs considerably faster this way.

    Look in the IBM Redbook for more information.

    There is one condition where these will get zapped - when the 'do not
    allow design replace/refresh to modify' is not set which seems to
    happen if folders are created in a mail database that is not set to
    inherit from any template. I know it sounds unlikely but lots of
    folks were bitten by this on the R4 -> R5 upgrade which is why there
    are so many utilities for checking this in the Sandbox on
