How to Disable Lotus Notes Client Integrated IM (for good)?

Posted on 2009-04-17
Last Modified: 2013-12-18
We use Lotus Notes 8.02 client.  We wish to use the full featured Sametime client instead of the integrated barebone Sametime client in the Notes client.

I go in and disable the integrated Sametime client, remove the IM server address, etc and the integrated client goes away for a while - only to appear again later.  This makes me have to Sametime clients running.

Is there a server side policy setting that could be setting this?  Our Domino server is managed by outside staff and I need to know what to ask them to check.

    There is a client side setting IM_Disable that can be used. It can be set via server side policies, see here  -
