If you’re a Domino administrator you know that up to know you have not been able to “drop” an individual IMAP or HTTP user like you have been with a Notes user. Why would you need to do that? Perhaps you’ve noticed that they have multiple threads or you know that they are causing the IMAP task to hang, or the IMAP task is not completing its shutdown because a few users are still logged on, etc., etc.
In any case, we asked for this feature to be included for IMAP and thanks to John Woods, Nick Orrick and team, it is currently in 8.5.3 CD5 (Note – it is always up to the discretion of IBM as to what features will be included in the generally available release). The commands are as follows:
tell imap show threadpool threads debug
tell imap drop all
tell imap drop session <abcd123>
This a big step towards providing IMAP stability. And no IMAP Idle is still not included. If you are a customer who requires IMAP in your environment, please make your requirements known to IBM!
Key Takeaways for me from Lotusphere 2012
Sat, Jan 21st 2012 8:09a Marie Scott I’m winding down the week of Lotusphere 2012 trying to fight off the usual post-conference plague/cold. The last few years I’ve been fortunate to add a few days to the end of the week to spend some time in Florida before heading home to the grey and cold winterscape of home. Winters in Virginia are nothing like what lots of Lotusphere attendees experience; we don’t usually have much snow. But we do have cold spells, occasional ice storms, and days of gray cloudiness. So the opp [read] Keywords: collaboration

Thu, Nov 3rd 2011 7:10a Marie Scott Several users (8.5.1 and 8.5.2) have reported receiving emails as HTML formatted text. After reviewing Notes preferences and reinstalling the Notes client, IBM Support was contacted. Here are the findings:
This problem may occur after Google Chrome has been uninstalled. If the default browser is not chosen when uninstalling Chrome, Notes will not be able to find the OS default browser.

Traveler 8.5.3 and Apple Devices
Wed, Nov 2nd 2011 8:47a Marie Scott We’ve been testing Traveler 8.5.3 in advance of our roll-out to our users this weekend. One thing we noticed was that on our Apple test devices, lookups for groups returned extra data. See below:
Upon investigation, I found this wiki article. Adding the following property to the datatravelercfgNTSConfig.xml file
addresses this issue and does not affect lookups for any other device (Android, etc.). Be sure to test this out first before modifying this in your production environment!

Domino 8.5.3 and iNotes Lite Mode
Wed, Nov 2nd 2011 8:04a Marie Scott A colleague of mine ran into this scenario after migrating to Domino 8.5.3 with iNotes. After upgrading, users logging into iNotes would experience a browser time. Research found that the setting in the notes.ini: iNotes_wa_DefaultUI=dwa_lite if removed, would allow the users to login successfully. However, the preference was to have iNotes_lite as the default. They aren’t using the iNotes redirect to set those settings on the fly.
After contacting IBM Support, they were notified t [read] Keywords: domino
