Notes 7.0.2 client does not automatically refresh inbox upon arrival of new email. Checked the settings under File-->Preferences-->User Preferences-->Mail(General), "When new mail arrives Automatically refresh inbox", it is checked off. Any suggestions?

Is it on the proper location (office or whichever is the one that defines that your client is connected directly to the server) ?

Is this mail a local replica or on the server.

is the server and mail file match this listed in the Location Document ?

If all that is OK, then try doing a replace design of the mail template.

I hope this helps !

The option you describe is a (also) design parameter of the Inbox-folder. The Refresh display option is set to Refresh the display automatically before showing the view to users. Assuming there's no Notes bug in this case, I can only conclude that you're not looking at what you think you're looking at. Could any of the following be true:
- you opened a database that resembled a mail database (e.g. with mail with a different mail template)
- mail is received on a server but you've opened your local replica
- you see that new mail arrived but you didn't get an audible or visual warning

In any case, can you tell us what you DO see when new mail arrives?

Goto Files > Preferences > User Preferences > Then go under the mail section and at the bottom " When new mail arrives" Select the options that you want when a new message arrives.

Did you check that the location document settings are correct ?

Can you forward an email ?

If not then the location document is not set up correctly.

I hope this helps !

It is possible that it is caused by the NewMailSeqNum variable in Notes.ini. You could remove that line. See also this tip:

That's very weird, because it has never happened to me (yet). Maybe timezone-related? ;-)
