Messages moves to trash instead of Archive

Hello.

We have a problem with one XP Pro Sp3 workstation. The GW client is 8.0.2 build 91941.
When the user try to archive a message, the moves into trash instead of archive.

Any ideas to fix the problem?

Thanks in advance for your tips.

Best regards.

Do you have purge or retention flags on?

Hello Michael.

Thanks for your answer.
Yes, the flag is on (We're using reload)
The mails I moved to archive were backed up before move to archive. So I did'nt see this phenomenon in my mailbox.
I tested it with a mail, that wasn't backed up. The mail was in the archive and in trash. The users wonder about the move to trash.
Would it be an idea to have a flag, that shows, that these mails are in the achive too?

Best regards.

Novell considers this working as designed. If you have a purge flag on
and the item hasn't been backed up (eg purge flag is older than file),
then Novell deliberately sticks a copy in the trash (and prevents
emptying of trash) so it can be backed up by backup solution.

While you can suggest (support.novell.com/enhancement) another flag, I
must say I would oppose it - the whole point of the backup/purge flags
is to DELIBERATELY make life miserable for the user such that the item
is properly retained/backed up.

A better RFE in my opinion is to hide these items from the users (but
not the APIs) when they land in the trash. The user doesn't need to know.
