I have recently been running some tests with Traveler to see if the client can be configured to use Active Directory credentials rather than a Notes username and Internet password.
An easy way of doing this is to add the domain username to the users person document and set/sync the same password. This works but is not an acceptable option.
While it is possible to configure the Traveler server to authenticate using AD when accessing it via a browser this does not work from an Android Traveler client.
Does anyone know of a way of getting this to work?
Also I have been trying the Android Email client as an alternative to using the Traveler client. I am not sure what the benefit is of using the Traveler client over the Android 4 builtin Exchange client. This may be addressed in the 8.5.4 client but why install additional software if it is not required?

Top Annoyances in Lotus Traveler client
Sat, Mar 16th 2013 6:15a Paul Farris While Lotus Traveler is a great product it is not perfect. Here is my list of the most annoying things about the Android client (8.5.3).
Date Picker. Does not display day name when selecting dates.
Save button. It is at the button of the form in Cal/Todo apps. Why do I have to scroll down to the bottom of the form to press it.
Does not sync when over quota. It does not display a message explaining telling the user that they are over quota and that is why the sync is failing.
