Out of office agent replies to messages again after 6.x or 7.x mail database is converted to 8.x mail template

You are running an 8.x Domino server and you are converting or replacing the mail template design of 6.x or 7.x mail database to 8.x. The mail database has the out of office agent enabled. After conversion you notice three distinct issues:
  • The agent sends replies to messages previously replied to again immediately after the conversion
  • The agent will now responds to EVERY message received
  • While enabled agent sends replies to messages previously replied to again after every design change
Workaround...Disable all out of office agents in databases with an R6 and R7 mail template design prior to converting on a R8 Domino server :-\

Yellow day - Keep a few hours to..., Chris Blatnick, Chris Toohey, Nathan Freeman, Tony Palmer ...

For the Yellow Day, it's time to get involved!!! I'm not much a graphist but when I'm ask to "modernize" a Notes application, I try to keep a few hours to revamp the UI based on those posts. It's a quick win!! It's easy to get rid of those 1990 UI, 16 colors interfaces.

Take a few minutes, it will worth it!

Interface matters from Chris Blatnick
Set of icons form Martin Vereecken
Domino Guru Chris Toohey
SnTT - Lotus Notes Database Icons posted by Gregg Eldred
Stuff from Tony Palmer
And a new sets Fugue Icon collection posted by Nathan Freeman on OpenNtf

So it will give stuff like this:

Old navigator

New frame
Old form

New form

Oh, and don't forget to wash your hand

Moving to MS Exchange from Lotus Domino - Random notes of a system administrator

From Random notes of a system administrator

...since most of our customers are interested on the benefits on moving to Exchange from Domino mail environment to Exchange. Even though this will be a cost factor initially long term the ROI really going to help them to streamline the business productivity. We found most of our customers are having hard time maintaining Domino environment as well as support wise.

hehehe, no comments

I prefer this version
