The key difference between Notes and Exchange is that Notes is not an email system first and foremost. It is a platform for database development. It happens to also be an email and calendaring package. Long established Notes shops often have no idea how many custom databases users have built and rely on for day to day business. I know of one large Notes ...

Basically: get a fixed IP address. Dynamic address ranges are often in blacklists, ... so they can't send email to lots of destinations anyway. It's not worth the hassle for a company.

If your Domino server is 8.5.3 or higher you can use FTBasePath notes.ini variable to set the location of full text indexes.

This is more of an admin question and here is the answer: http://www-12.lotus.com/ldd/doc/domino_notes/Rnext/help6_admin.nsf/b3266a3c17f9bb7085256b870069c0a9/5dc869eda42a372e85256c1d0039546f?OpenDocument Since I haven't used this feature before, I am not sure whether it will keep a copy in the intended recipient's mail box or not, but this is a step in the ...

Two ways to find the version of Domino running on a server: Open the Name and Address Book on server (usually, names.nsf), go to the Configuration > Servers > All Server Documents view (using left-hand navigator). You will see a list of all servers, and a column for each labeled "Domino Release" Open the main log database (usually, log.nsf) on the server. ...

I highly recommend converting the design of the mail-in database from the standard mail template to the DominoTeamMailbox template available at OpenNTF: http://www.openntf.org/Projects/pmt.nsf/ProjectLookup/DominoTeamMailbox You can manually set the from/reply-to addresses in the database configuration. We use it for all of our mail-in databases (as well ...

Out of the box outlook user experience is much better than Notes. However, as Geoff said, Lotus Notes is a development platorm. The Mail system is just one application already given to you. If you want you can design on that Mail template your own customization. Notes (/Domino) is a very stable environment and a very good Rapid Application Development ...

Most of the time in my experience it has been relatively straightforward and users generally hate Lotus because Lotus admins insist on running a 5 year backlevel client. (Having working with Tivoli before, I could understand that philosophy.) The key is to rip off the bandaid. The products that help you run Notes/Exchange simultaneously are fairly mediocre, ...

Any chance to get a VPN from your machine directly to the server? There are "security solutions" that drop packages, connections, ... Using a VPN, you can rule out issues with the network on the way there.

problem is that when you renewed the certificate, you accepted the default encryption method of SHA2 which is not supported properly yet. Needed to switch it to SHA1. SHA1 used to be the default but has recently changed. Something to be aware of going forward. by default, godaddy now issues certificates in the higher new format. You can re-issue the ...

This article on the DominoPower.com site could be helpful: Different ways to programmatically create an email message. Basically the author describes how to use ShellExecute in order to open "mailto:" links.

One should never look at notes unless company is already hooked on that piece of software. I don't care how powerfull this platform is. It belongs to win 3.11 era. And the way the things go it will never ever become a modern product. It is 2009 and latest version of notes does not work with clipboard user friendly. It should burn in hell. additional info

I personally don't have experience in with the Domino / AD integration, but I've long thought about it and hope to try implementing it this year. The things I do know is that IBM has a service built to synchronize Domino and AD user/group info in both directions, and that there is a company called PistolStar that appears to specialize in this area. I ...

11 Years.... Although I don't know about your SSO goals, I would have to deffiently say that it's time for a fresh install on a new/virtual server and to move everything over then create the users you need (or if you find out about SSO, setting that up). That current setup sounds like it's covered in security issues.

Wow, that is a lot of questions with a huge scope. I don't mean to be rude but I think your best approach is going to be to research most of these questions extensively yourself and build up a very complete picture. It's not something we can really cover properly for you in a single thread. A migration like this is a big undertaking, it'll need time & ...

There shouldn't be any interference between the two servers that would break things. For example, you need to install both of them on the same machine when running Blackberry Enterprise Server for Domino. But as lg says, performance may be a concern depending on what you need from them.

You'll have to change the mail file location specified in the Person document of the Domino Directory.

The Synchronize Address Book action actually copies contacts into the user's mail database itself. There are several views like "($Contacts)", "($Users)" or "($VIMPeople)" in the mail database that Domino Web Access (and newer versions of BB) uses to display Contacts on the web. Try just giving her Manager access to her own mail file and then use the ...

First and foremost bug your ISP to give you a static IP. You can not expect to reliably send or receive email from a dynamic IP. Sending may be less of an issue since you use a 3rd party to relay your outgoing email. However incoming email will become a problem every time your ISP changes your IP. Then you have to change DNS records accordingly or you may ...

So, you're essentially using the dynamic DNS entry as your MX? Can you clarify that? To do filtering of incoming mail, you can contract with some service to do it for you. Mailroute, I guess Postini, etc. You would set the MX record to point at their service, so they see the mail before you do. I assume that clean mail would then be routed to your ...

If you open the reported event in DDM.nsf, you can use the "Triggered by" doclink to get to the probe that generated the event. From there you can disable the probe.

Since IBM's System Requirements for Windows only goes up to Server 2008 R2, even if you were to get Domino installed and working on 2012 - they would not support you if you needed to call in for support. I suggest going with the system requirements, as to save yourself for being SOL for support or the frustration of trying to get Domino up and running on ...

I have installed Domino 8.5.3 on Windows Server 2012 with no problems. However, I agree with Cole that it is an unsupported configuratin.

Support for Windows Server 2012 was introduced with IBM Domino 9 Social Edition (March 2013) and 8.5.3 Fix Pack 4 (April 2013).

The 'Redirect TCP to SSL' option is on the Security tab of the WebSite/Internet Site document. However, I just checked this with Fiddler and it uses a 302 response code, not a 301. Open the Internet Sites doc in question and click the Web Site... -> Create Rule button. Set the following field values: Description: 301 Redir to SSL Type of rule: ...

compact -B is "In-place with file size reduction". Give it a try if you haven't yet. In my understanding drop db.nsf does not work. Try Drop All and if that works you could write some code that drops only users accessing that db.

This can't really be done out of the box in the notes client. First you need a Domino web server on your machine that you can link to. The Notes client does not offer this. It does have a scaled down web server which is active when you "Preview in Web Browser", but it is very limited and not designed to take external requests from the machine. One ...

You can run net stop /y to suppress the yes/no prompt. Simple enough.

It sounds like an issue with the UNK table. The field was probably not created as a date/time field in the first place. Delete the FT index, do an offline compact, and re-build the FT index. See http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21261002 for more info.
