Today i created a new mail rule in IBM Lotus Notes. I hate mails sent with high importance and i have some people which are sending all there mail with high importance! The new traveler app adds “Dringend” to each mail marked with high importance. I read my mails all 10 to 20 minutes and i normally answer them in under two hours, but i do not answer faster, when i see a red “!” Get rid of this: I created a mail rule to remove the high importance tag. Thanks Notes!

I think there is a wrong message in meeting delegation with comments function. When you delegate a meeting to someone else and add a comment, then the Comment window shows following info text: “The delegation notice will go out to the delegee and chair will receive the information about this delegation.” So people who add a comment think the text will be sent to the person which get delegated. What do you think? Who will receive the comment? Yes right, the chair will get it, not the delegee. I think this is very confusing for the users and perhaps they add comments which shouldn’t be read of the chair!

Some more points to my working configuration of Single Sign-On in Lotus Notes. Automating configuration with plugin_customization.ini I do a lot of software tests with my productive Notes Client (on Mac OS), so i often delete the Expeditor-folder in ~/Library/Application Support/Lotus Notes Data/. So i place configuration details in /Applications/Notes.app/Contents/MacOS/rcp/plugin_customization.ini, then the settings get automatically applied. # Connections Config com.ibm.lconn.client.base/server=http\://connections.example.com/profiles com.ibm.lconn.client.base/authtype=DOMINO-SSO com.ibm.lconn.client.base/dominosso.dominoresolveservername=false com.ibm.lconn.client.base/authserver=$hierarchical Domino-Server-Name$ com.ibm.lconn.client.base/dominosso.useclustermates=true com.ibm.lconn.client.base/dominosso.preferred.username.field=ShortName com.ibm.lconn.client.base/policy-mode=OVERWRITE com.ibm.lconn.client.base/enableConnectionsIntegration=true # Sametime Config com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/name=$Name for Community$ com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/host=$Hostname of Sametime Server$ com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/defaultAuthType=ST-DOMINO-SSO com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/authServerUrl=$hierarchical Domino Server Name$ com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/loginByToken=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/tokenLoginOnly=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/loginAtStartup=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.login/autologin=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.login/alwaysLoggedIn=true com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.imhub/disableExit=false # Status Updater Fix to show profile pictures com.ibm.lconn.statusupdates/download.image.enabled=true Sametime will only apply the settings of plugin_customization.

In only two weeks starts LCTY Edcom Nachlese 2012 in Munich. I prepare a session on Single Sign On in Notes / Domino environments. So i had time to check some settings in Lotus Notes. Since 8.5.3 we have a new option Domino-SSO for Connections Plugin. I made several tests with my installed Notes Client on Mac OS, but i had no success. I tested with several settings in the preferences dialog and with different settings in plugin_customization.ini. I had one configuration where i can use Sametime Tokenbased Login and leave “Domino Single Sign-On Server” empty in connections preferences, but this works only with running Notes Client and i had to apply the setting again after restart the client.
