BM mail support for Microsoft Outlook officially released

Finally IBM has released IMSMO 2.0. It has been around already under controlled distribution and is finally available for all customers and partners.

It enables you to connect a Microsoft Outlook 2013 client to a Domino V9.0.1 Server.

The software is an add-on to your Domino server similar to what a Traveler does (in fact they share some code base but they are not the same!).
Also the gateway need to resist on the mail-server of the user. We asked to have a way to use a gateway server approach but IBM implemented it this way.

If you are running in a production environment and you are running with more than a handful of users it is strongly recommended to use DB2 for the state database instead of the derby database.
So for every server that has IMSMO enabled you need a connection to a DB2 server for the state database.
Another way would be to have a local replica of the mailfile on the IMSMO server for all users running an Outlook Client.

This solution is not intended for a whole, large organization. It's more one of the flexible options to support Outlook Clients in your environment for users who want or need the client for some special reason.

For the Outlook Client you have to deploy an add-on which handles the connection.
The first version with the project name "Hawthorn" was using the Active Sync protocol for sync and rest services with a plug-in for additional services like OOO and busytime lookup. T
hat's why only Outlook 2013 and higher was supported because earlier releases did not support ActiveSync.

The new version uses SyncML which gives IBM more control over the connection and functionality. The plugin does now handle the whole connection from client to server over SyncML.
Older clients can still connect over ActiveSync but the new model makes more sense to only use the new plug-in.
IBM also plans to support other Outlook Clients leveraging the plug-in approach.

If you are entitled to download Domino V9.0.1, you can download IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook at no charge from Passport Advantage®.

But you should wait to download and install the client component. There is an issue where I have an open PMR since yesterday afternoon.
It looks like there is an issue with the client package. Development reported back that they are working on it with high priority.
I will blog about it once I have more details.

CREATE_R9_LOG is not a valid notes.ini parameter and does not exist!
Fri, Mar 24th 2017 8:29p   Daniel Nashed
After hearing this question twice a week I think it is time for a blog entry. There is a notes.ini parameter for the different ODS formats in different releases. The latest one you should use is Create_R9_Databases=1 to create databases with ODS 52. ODS 52 is needed for local databases which are encrypted (there was an underlying ODS issue that has been addressed in ODS 52). Also for hew new LargeSummary (16MB instead of 32KB per document) you need to be on ODS 52. But there is no ne

Traveler 9.0.1.17 Relased with important bug fixes
Fri, Mar 24th 2017 8:12p   Daniel Nashed
As posted before Traveler 9.0.1.16 had one issue that needed urgent attention. Push was not working when the mail-server had a short downtime. If you are on that release you should update asap. There are a couple of other fixes along with that ARPA included in 9.0.1.17. Just back from a couple of days of travel and installed it this morning. Looks good so far.

D9.0.1 FP8 Attachment Corruption Issue with Disclaimers
Tue, Mar 21st 2017 3:27p   Daniel Nashed
There is an issue that has been reported about FP8. When using disclaimers attachments might be corrupted. IBM released a technote with details and is working on a fix. Feature Pack 8 contains an enhancement/fix to correctly send Google Calendar files. The fix is enabled by default and causes this corruption. You can still deploy FP8 and disable the feature/fix temporary via Notes.ini MIMEDisclaimersNoEncode=0 on your SMTP outbound server. See this SPR #TPONAKFJLP / APAR #LO91828 fo

Traveler on Domino 9.0.1 FP8
Tue, Mar 7th 2017 9:51p   Daniel Nashed
Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8 has just shipped. If you are intending to update your Traveler Server to Domino FP8 you should be aware that you need at least Traveler 9.0.1.16 (which currently has an issue reconnecting to a mail-server if it wasn't reachable --> see previous blog posts). If you still intend to update your server there are some important requirements. FP8 comes with Java 1.8 and Traveler is using that JVM. So it some changes are needed in the Traveler code to support the

Feature Pack 8 has shipped today including new templates. The new version comes with updated documentation for the Client, the Server and also for the Designer.

Here is the main entries for the documentation. Beside Java 1.8 support, NIFNSF and large summary support there are a couple of other new stuff. XPages was not mention

Travele 9.0.16 released with re-connect issue
Sun, Mar 5th 2017 2:26p   Daniel Nashed
Traveler 9.0.16 has been released a while go with an issue that might impact you if you need to restart your mail servers. There is an APAR and there is already a hotfix available if you are already on that release. If you are not on this release yet, you should wait for a new version! There is also a work-around if you are on that release -- see below. 9.0.16 itself comes with a couple of bugfixes and preparation for Domino 9.0.1 FP8 which will introduce JVM 1.8.

Details about JVM 1.8 Update in Notes/Domino 9.0.1 FP8
Sun, Feb 5th 2017 10:30p   Daniel Nashed
After my post I got a couple of offline and online questions about details for JVM 1.8 in the Notes Client. The release notes will be update but here is the comment from Scott in case you missed it in the comments. Thanks Scott for this detailed additonal information!!! Java Upgrade to 1.8. The Java run time environment provided with Domino has been upgraded to Java JRE version 1.8 to provide you with access to the latest features. - This is actually both Notes & Domino.

IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8 Preliminary Release Notice

Notes 9.0.1 FP7 IF1 released
Thu, Dec 8th 2016 3:59p   Daniel Nashed
There is a new IF1 for the Notes Client. Now it begins to be more complicated. The client IF1 and the server IF1 for the Linux issue (see previous posts) have nothing to do with each other and contain different SPRs. The most important fix is the issue we had with ID vault when the new port encryption is used. Given that the SPR is fixed in the client this looks like a client issue and not a server issue. -- Daniel Notes 9.0.1 Fix Pack 7 Interim Fix 1 RGAUADUM59 Duplica
