  • Hi, inevg,

    I have to say that there is no other answers better than Martina's.

    If you use Cyrillic name by copying from one word file, then I suggest you firstly paste the name into one txt file. After then copy it and paste it into "Mailbox database name" box.

  • Even if you manage to do so using copy and paste tricks, I would not recommend to do so, this can produce different unforeseen negative effects.
