Lotus Software produced the Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet program, and later developed Lotus Notes, a groupware and email system. Following its acquisition by IBM, the Notes and Domino client/server collaborative platform were expanded to include functions such as email, calendars, to-do lists, contacts management, teamrooms, discussion forums, file sharing, microblogging, instant messaging, blogs, and user directories. IBM also release SmartSuite, a comprehensive office suite, and followed that with Symphony, unrelated to the Lotus suite of the same name.

I have a button on a form that will pull some information from that document to a new memo. Unfortunately, it is placing the Body text below the email signature (All Users have a signature). Any ideas how I can get the text to appear above the signture?

	Dim wsUI As New NotesUIWorkspace
	Dim dbMail As New NotesDatabase( "", "" )
	Dim docMail As NotesDocument
	Dim vComputeForm As Variant
	
	Call dbMail.OpenMail
	
	Set docMail = dbMail.CreateDocument
	docMail.Form = "Memo"
	docMail.Subject = "Review the following: " + docUI.Document.IDNum(0)
	docMail.Body = |Hello,| + Chr(13) + Chr(13) +_
	|We have received your document, titled "| + docUI.Document.Title(0) + |."  We will review in a few days.| +_
	|Please feel free to contact our office with any questions.|
	
	Call wsUI.EditDocument( True, docMail )

Open in new window


The above codes output:

Just recently I tried to open Lotus Notes database "Central Asset Tracking Syst Library"  and got the following message:
"A replica of this database cannot be found on the specified server; please try a different server". This database has been located on the Server: D06DBL074/06/A/IBM, Filename: e_dir\e0024574.nsf. This database is fundamental for the Development and Support of the IBM application CATS (WW Central Asset Tracking System). Please, advise us is it possible to retrieve this database and/or give us the name of appropriate contact person who could help us to resolve this problem.

I have created a secondary directory that is used for secondary (Web) users.

Directories:
names.nsf
namesSecondary.nsf

This allows both internal and external users to access the appropriate databases.

I noticed I am able to access the People view from the names.nsf & namesSecondary.nsf when I log in as a secondary user.

In general this seems like a data security issue. The user isn't able to edit anything however they can view all the users and obtain information about that user.

My question:
Am I able to secure the web access of names.nsf & namesSecondary.nsf without compromising authentication and etc?  I would love for anyone accessing any view from the web to be redirected to the main website address used by the Domino server.

Hi,

I am sure that this is an easy question to answer. I am looking at a migration from Lotus Notes to microsoft exchange. My network support engineer said that he has done this many times in the past and he has used a tool called quest and its really easy. I have been informed that this is expensive so really looking for what other options are available.

Have 250 users to migrate over a number of sites.

We have a phone system that will email a .wav voicemail message to a client if they are not near their phone to pick it up.  However, some of our clients only receive the attachment thumbnail & name: (xxxx.wav) and not the actual .wav file.

When they click the attachment icon to 'Open' the file or save it, they get this error msg:  Invalid form ($Body is not rich text).

Our agency has over 100 IBM (Lotus) Notes users (Some vs. 8.5.2 & some 9.0.1 PF7) this happens to just a couple of these users, not all.

Get the same msg. when an administrator opens their mail file & attachment in 'Administrator'.  So somehow Notes is stripping the .wav file before it gets to the client mailbox.  I would attempt to attach the .wav file here but there is nothing there to attach, just the thumbnail place holder.

Tried completely uninstalling IBM Notes client (along with all local file folders etc.) and reinstalling with Vs. 9.0.1 FP7.  -- Same issue.

Can anyone help with a solution?

Hello,

Can anyone help in providing step by step procedure to configure Notes NSD for crash analysis? I was unable to find any link or document which hold that information. I have a test server where the Domino is configured, all I want now is to configure the NSD for logs to get generated when there is a crash. Also, we dont want the server to get restarted rather I want the logs to get generated for validation.

Another information and guidance I need is, which logs help to analyse and find why the server got restarted or got crashed?

Dear all experts,

I need your advice in this case for Lotus Note Email Migration. In our company, we have many type of email address initial. I want to make the standardlize for whole company hence i need to change all the email address to match the standard. However i get the difficulities, each employee has only one employee number, 01 AD account, 01 Mailbox. If we want to change the email, we need to create one more employee number, it is very hard for HR to manage the employee number.

Hereby i would like to ask the possibility to add the mutiple email address for 01 account like primary and secondary? Or can we just rename email account?

Thanks and hope to receive your response soon.

KR,
Huy

1. Pass all the doc.UNID to java to convert all docs to PDF file
2. Then after converting it to a PDF File it will put all the pdf files into a zip file
3. Then it will give it to Notes
4. Notes need to decompress the file then save it to a folder programmatically
5. Print each file programmatically

How can I do 4 & 5? or at least no.5?

Sometimes clients can lose connectivity with the Lotus Notes Domino Server, but there's not always an obvious answer as to why it happens. Read this article to follow one of the first experiences I had with Lotus Notes on a client's machine, my now good bipolar friendly software.
