Disable rename users by adminp on archives for Government(s) use

Some departments of some governments treats the archives as static archives. Deletions and renames are not allowed, because of the fact that your name was static on the date/time when you received or wrote an email or meeting.

If you change your name from User-A/ORG to User-B/ORG...that's from the date and time you started/requested the rename. Your name was not User-B/ORG 2 years ago.

The rename in your live mailbox is no problem, because governments mostly have a strict archive policy: 3 months or less.

Therefor we need a way to tell adminp to leave the archives as they are. Compact -A moves the ACL to the archive database, even the Advanced ACL properties ( when the ACL of the mailfile changes ). Therefor the archives gets the Administration Server of the maildatabase, and mostly that's wrong. We don't have archives on the mailserver, but on a seperated mailserver.

HCL please accomplish 2 things:

1) Let compact -a only change the ACL, and leave the Advanced properties alone.

2) Don't delete and rename users by adminp ( deletions are solved by notes.ini parameter )

    Updating the ACL afterwards can be done, but should not be the case. Compact -A should leave the Advanced ACL alone on the Archive server.

    @Thomas: Yes, that should be doing the trick....but every time when I perform a compact -a, and when the ACL on the maildatabase has changed, the entire ACL on the archivedatabase is overwritten with the one from the maildatabase.

    Changing ACL settings to not modify name fields (under Advanced) is not an option?
    //Edit: e.g. running an agent after compact -a , that will update the ACL again?
