How do you get rid of all the deletion stubs in a database?

All document deletion stubs in a database can be purged by selecting File/Database/Information/Replication and setting the cutoff date ahead two days. Once this is done, the deletion stubs are purged immediately.

NOTE: Depending upon the Notes platform, it may also be necessary to set the purge interval to one day as well as setting the cutoff date ahead. This is not required for all Notes platforms.

Applies to Notes Versions: 3, 4, 4.5, 4.6, 5, 6
