Lotus Notes: Resolving "You are not authorized to use the server" errors

This article was been published more than a year ago. The information may be outdated.

The error message “You are not authorized to use the server” is caused by the user being entered into the Deny list. When this error message is displayed, the administrator of the Deny list will have to change the permissions of the user in question.
 
Edit: A commenter commented that I’d got it wrong, so I’ve now corrected it.

    That is not correct.

    The error message you state here indicates that the user is listed in a Deny List.

    The explanation you give to the error message is for the error message “You are not authorized to access this database”.

    Good try though.
