Traveler will install 5 icons in total on your Android device, they are
The installer is downloaded from the Traveler Server and used to install the other applications
These two should be obvious
Used to search the directory
This is where options are set for Traveler, and where I am going to show a few settings I changed to better suit my needs.
After Launching Notes Traveler use the Menu key on your device to bring up the settings menu, and select Applications
The first setting I like to tweak is the Signature option, by default it is enabled and set to “Sent by Lotus Notes Traveler” My personal preference is no signature at all, but even in cases where I want a signature, I never use a device specific one, so I simply disable, you can disable or set the default to suit your preferences:
The next step is to customize the Inbox view, and notification settings, from the Applications Menu select preferences:
The Message Preview option determines what you in your inbox, and also as a result how many messages will appear on your screen at once. On the left is an example using message preview, on the right is an example with preview off:
As you can see disabling message preview gives you 3 to 4 more messages per screen, personally I prefer to see more messages per screen and forgo the preview.
While in Preferences you can also set your notification options on receipt of new mail:
Finally the last option I am going to cover today is Auto Sync which you can use to control how frequently your Device syncs with the server. There are two periods you can define, peak and off-peak, the default is for peak to be “Always Connected”, and off-peak “Every 15 minutes” To access these preferences select the Auto Sync option from the Settings menu, here you can set the peak and off peak time windows as well as the sync option for each:
As you can see I have changed my peak time period from “Always Connected” to “Every 15 minutes”, I find it is less of a drain on battery life (again you know I worry about these things), and I can always initiate a manual sync from my inbox if I need something more immediate.
I hope these tips help you customize your Traveler on Android experience, and if you have a good tip, do please leave a comment.
Sun, May 5th 2013 5:21p Mitch Cohen Survivor is the only reality TV show I watch. I have been watching it since it went on the air in 1998. Some seasons have been better than others, some of the survivors have been more fun to watch than others, but through the years for some reason I keep watching.
This morning we are celebrating real survivors, including my favorite survivor pictured here.

Farewell Google Reader – The “Free Problem”
Thu, Mar 14th 2013 8:15a Mitch Cohen Everyone loves Free products, but just look at the last few weeks/months here is a list of services or apps I use(d) that are going away
Tweetdeck (Air version)
There are others like Otixo which I used which transitioned from Freemium to paid, at which point I made a value judgement that it was not worth it to me to pay for that service. Ultimately you get what you pay for, and when you are not paying, you are simply hoping the free service you are us [read] Keywords: facebook
Oxford University Blocks Google Docs
Tue, Feb 19th 2013 6:15a Mitch Cohen This story caught e eye this morning, Oxford University made a decision to block Google Docs on the campus network at least temporarily for security reasons. You can read the article for why Oxford made this decision, the key though is how they say Google’s response (or lack thereof) to Phishing attacks running in Google Docs
Unfortunately, you then need to wait for them to take action. Of late that seems typically to take a day or two; in the past it’s been much longer, sometimes on [read] Keywords: email
