  - Domino server is unavailable

In order to allow the NSF Import to get started it is possible to manually create the mailbox database(s) on the Domino Mail Server; so from Domino Admin go to File \ Application\ New and create an application with the same location and name of the previuously deleted mailbox database.

It is not required to alter the newly created ACL database application.
