We have a problem with some users sending emails to an external email address and CC'ing an internal group (AddDev). The external user receives the email with the CC containing "AppDev"  I know an internet address will replace the "AppDev" if the group document contains an internet address (appdev@domain.com). In this case "AppDev" does not contain an internet address.

I know, if the user remembers, can click on "More - Expand Public Groups" will replace "AppDev" in the CC with the user names within that group.

Is there a way to eliminate the user having to click "More - Expand Public Groups" and have the server automatically do it if the is being externally sent?

We are trying to create two generic ID files in Domino admin for registering person docs (Registering New users) and re-certify user certificates which are expired. Current issue is we when we create a new person document with ID file and grant access to Admin server and try creating a new lotus domino account, we are unable to view list of certifiers to select.

When we try to modify recovery authorities but it fails and does not resolve the current issue, When we try to Modify certifiers and try to remove administrators its giving an error  “Cannot locate user certificate. Make sure server contains your certificate for encryption”. I also tried copying the person document of that administrator back into their directory and followed the same steps which did not help me.

Can any one help me at the earliest as its very important to us?2019-03-28-09_35_36-2019-02-10-10_46.png
I am using IBM Notes 9.0.1 FP7 (Social Edition)

How can I search for all the mails in the inbox that have an attachment ?

  • Hide all emails without an attachment
  • Sort the inbox so the emails with attachments are all at the top (Ideally sorted by date)

I am not:
  • Looking for a specific filename for the attachment
  • Meaning to search for specific text within any attachments
  • Looking for a solution where I have to use the 'Notes Designer' to create custom functionality - just in-built functionality

Easiest way to use Outlook 2013 with Domino server.

I have two PCs, one Windows 7, one Windows 10, which have Office 2013 installed and need to use this mail client to connect to their mail files on the IBM Domino server. I've been attempting to use the Damo connector to no avail as on Windows 10 it throws an error claiming there is no mail client set as the default program, despite Outlook 2013 explicitly being set as the default mail client. On Windows 7 it's had half a dozen random catastrophic errors resulting in inability to read IBM ID files, profiles having blank information despite an initial successful login and other strange behavior resulting in failures.

Is there some better way to connect Outlook 2013 to their mail files on the domino server?
Hello All,

We are having issue while fetching values related to dropdown.
Example: We have first Country dropdown and based on that we need to fetch value for State dropdown. But State values are not getting fetched.

So we have code 'OnChange ' property of Country dropdown.

we have a java script mentioned on form where we are defining variable say
V3 = 'computedtext' here computed text holds lotus notes formula of 'dbcolumn' which fetches value of country
V4 = 'computed text' here computed text holds lotus notes formula of dbcolumn which fetches value of states

But while loading form in web browser.. it is throwing error V3 is not defined.. where as V3 is already defined on the form.

Please suggest

I have problem with SSL Certificate. I would like to have domain with https (https://mydomain.com), but I don't know how to do it. I bought and download SSL Certificate (SHA-2, CSR,CA) from my hosting that I took my domain. I used Server Certificate Admin (certsrv.nsf) and i get dialog box "The certificate has been merged into your key ring. You are now ready to enable SSL on server...". I go to server document Ports->Internet Ports change to enable "Accept SSL site Certificate", but no results. Maybe the problem is with path to keyfile (My path on server "D:/Domino/Data/keyfile.kyr").

For example my code, it needs only onw string to be complete.

e = window.document.forms[0].elements
var  count = String(e.elements["countrow"].value)
for (j = 1, t=j+1 ; j < 49; j++,t++) {
e.elements[ "textlink"+j].value = e.elements[ "textlink"+t].value
e.elements[ "pwname"+j].value = e.elements[ "pwname"+t].value
e.elements[ "idn"+j].value = e.elements[ "idn"+t].value
e.elements[ "countrow"].value = count-1
