You will need to run another compact -c to compress the current documents.
Indirect file is just a text list of databases - one per line:


It goes in data directory and commands like compact refer to it that way. If
your ind files are in a subdirectory, then it would be load compact
indfiles/file.ind -a

"I think the reason it's not sticking is that those options are probably
enabled on your template. When design runs it will overwrite that. Are you
using Single Copy Template also? This could cause it to seem to get
overwritten more quickly.

Also, when you run your compact -c to enable ODS48 and implement the
compression, you may want to do this:

compact -v -n -ZU -c

-v = enable body compression, -n = enable design compression, -ZU = enable
LZ1 "

Chris - I just checked the mail8.ntf (the only one is use) and the
compression was not enabled so I checked it to enable it. All my databases
are at ODS48 (I did that during/shortly after the upgrade to 801) and the
design compression and LZ1 are already enabled (probably carried over from
the template). I'll let the compact -B run this weekend to do the body

"Or just create a view with a single column containing just the mail file
path and then export it to a text file and make it an ind file, etc...
Then run compact -a maila-d.ind" I'm not familiar with ind files. Where
would the ind file reside so that the compact command would find it? In
the main domino server directory?

Rob: "Too bad the compact doesn't allow wild cards. like mail/a*." That's
exactly what I was wondering... Thanks for clarifying. Sound like Chris's
ind file may be an alternative. "Then on 8.5 DAOS kicks butt." I hope to
go to 8.5 early next year after we get new hardware.
