There has been some confusion about how BES10 will access Domino based mailfiles.
A couple of customers asked me to explain how this is going to work.
The following abstract describes briefly on high level how both will work together.
The current BES server uses a C-API based solution which access the Domino Mail-Databases via Notes protocol (NRPC).
With BES10 there is no native access any more and BES 10 only support devices with the new BB OS.
All communication between BES 10 and Domino will be over ActiveSync to a IBM Notes Traveler Server which will use native NRPC to access user's mailfiles.
So the communication is BES10 -> Traveler via ActiveSync
Traveler -> Domino via NRPC.
BB10 devices will normally connect to the BES10 server using the infrastructure that you already know.
So the same security and encryption applies for BB10 devices. You can use policies in a similar way you could use in previous BES releases.
The BES10 server will control the "business" part of the device.
For other device types like iOS and Android the connectivity will be directly from the device to the Traveler server using ActiveSync.
But the mobile device functionality of the BES10 server can be leveraged. So for iOS devices you can install a profile with a payload containing the ActiveSync account needed for Traveler and all sort of other settings.
BES10 and Playbook devices can also be connected directly to a Traveler server using ActiveSync.
When using BES10 and Playbook devices or the BES10 Server leveraging ActiveSync access you need Traveler 9 running on a Domino 9 server.
Both are planned to ship end of March 2013.
I hope this clarifies a bit how this new offering from Blackberry will work together with IBM Notes Traveler

Traveler 9.0.1 IF1 available
Fri, Nov 22nd 2013 7:14a Daniel Nashed There have been some issues with Traveler 9.0.1. The most ciritcal issue was (LO77840) that if you marked a mail with the followup function the mail was updated with the device user's principal -- which let the mail look as sent from yourself. IF1 fixes the following issues and you should update asap. The IF is not yet available but should be available later today. The fixlist information is already listed on the IBM website. -- Daniel Note: Notes Traveler 9.0.1 IF1 includes all AP [read] Keywords: ibm
Traveler 9.0.1 issue with followup indicators used on mobile device
Tue, Nov 12th 2013 7:11a Daniel Nashed There is an issue in Traveler 9.0.1 that we ran into. When you use the follow-up indicators on the mobile device for a SMTP message, Traveler will add the user's name to the Principal field in the message. This will sync back to the mail database and the name shown in the inbox view is the user's name instead of the sender. You will still see the original sender as "sent by". The problem occurs only if you use the followup indicator and does not occur when you toggle read/unread. IBM ha [read] Keywords: ibm
Domino 9.0.1 DBMT Compact File Pre-Alloc
Mon, Nov 4th 2013 5:12a Daniel Nashed This was on my list for a long time. When you leverage a copy-style compact the resulting database is often more fragmented than it was before because of the way a copy style compact works. A copy style compact generates a temp file and copies the database note by note into the database. For each document there is a check if the target database still has sufficient space fee. Else the database is extended to make the new document and/or object fit into the database. The space allocated is [read] Keywords: domino
IBM Sametime Limited Use 9 release for IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 customers
Wed, Oct 30th 2013 5:12p Daniel Nashed There has been a lot of discussion about the Sametime Limited use for Notes 9 already before Sametime 9 shipped. But with Sametime 9 there was more confusion. IBM published a technote which will be updated as soon there are news. The following content is already great news for customers. It wasn't the best timing between the different teams but it sounds like they have sorted it out :-) Stay tuned for updates.

Traveler 9.0.1 - Adaptive Initial Sync
Wed, Oct 30th 2013 10:12a Daniel Nashed Most of the Traveler improvements have been already shipped with the 220.127.116.11 release. But there is one important setting that can make a difference in case you run into a recovery situation and also more important for new users -- which is more a daily use case. The feature is called Adaptive Initial Sync in short "AIS". The functionality can be controlled by a couple of notes.ini settings and is enabled by default. AIS will first send the user is "current data" (by default the curr [read] Keywords: admin
C-API Development for Domino 9 64bit
Fri, Oct 25th 2013 6:17a Daniel Nashed The following is a short info for all C-API developers who want to port their applications to native 64bit on Windows.
It took me some time to find the right Microsoft compiler and that's why I want to give you a quick summary.
This can save you some of time and frustation. Once you installed the wrong compiler or did the wrong update you might not be able to re-install the compiler.
I had to switch to a new Windows 2008 R2 VM and re-installed everything from scratch after things went wrong.

Thu, Oct 17th 2013 6:10a Daniel Nashed IBM released a new interims fix with quite a number of fixes. IMHO it would make sense to install this update as soon as you can if you are already on Traveler 9.x
