PermaLink Enhancing the Lotus Domino server based mailrules25.11.2004 19:29

I browsed the blog of Chris Linfoot to get some new ideas on Anti-SPAM tactics as my attention was directed to this article about hacking the Domino Mailrules. I found this quite useful and can recommend this modification.



PermaLink Bluetooth handsfree skypeing25.11.2004 12:13

Logitech Headset for use with SkypeAs I blogged before I am using Skype since a while. Today I was frustrated that I can't use it cause I don't have my headset with me. This brought me to the idea that maybe my bluetooth headset from Logitech, which I normally use with my Nokia mobile, would work with my IBM Thinkpad T41p. Guess what, it just works!

PermaLink Vacation plans almost finished22.11.2004 23:49

As I was blogging before -here- I am going to make vacation in middle earth, New Zealand in January 2005.


PermaLink Support for Lotus Domino Web Access with Firefox browser on Windows22.11.2004 16:08

Currently Domino 6.5.3 supports mozilla based browsers on Linux clients only. To make this absolutely clear: Neither mozilla nor firefox are currently supported clients on the MS Windows platform.

If you would like to see firefox on WINDOWS to be a supported browser stop whining, open an PMR and ask for an fix for SPR ETII66RJQQ. If enough customers are complaining, this will be available soon.



PermaLink Release Open Notes Picture Database 1.1.216.11.2004 08:42

I just release version 1.1.2 of the Open Notes Picture Database. While the previous release supported EZThumbnail as an external application to resize images, the current release added support for ImageMagick. It's your choice which application to use as there is currently no difference in supported functions. Download is available on the ONPD release page.



PermaLink Uploading more than one file at the same time15.11.2004 16:47

I was working on an option to upload photos to the ONPD database. While doing some tests I ran into a problem with uploading more than one file at once using the file upload control. This works just for the first file, the others will fail.

All Domino Servers running on UNIX operating systems (Linux, AIX, ...) are affected. This is a bug which is fixed in 6.5.4, SPR THTO63TR3Y.



PermaLink SMTPMaxforRecipients does not work10.11.2004 11:33

Just for the records. The IBM Redbook "Lotus Domino 6 spam survival Guide" does recommend to use SMTPMaxforRecipients in the notes.ini to reduce the effectiveness of harvesting email addresses. Chapter 4.5.2 in: http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/pdfs/sg246930.pdf

This parameter does not seem to work, neither in 5.x nor in 6.x. The problem is known as SPR TMEN62PF8B if you like to request a fix.



PermaLink Is your company using Instant Messaging?10.11.2004 10:44

Discussing with customers about IBM Lotus Instant Messaging (SameTime) is sometimes funny when the customers representative claims that they are not using any IM solution at all and so they do not have the need to use SameTime.

There is a tool you can use to be sure what is going on in a corporate network. Download and whitepaper is available on this site: http://www.imdetector.com/ibmreseller/?sre=IML0015

 



PermaLink Using IBM Lotus Domino Web Access as standard mail client09.11.2004 00:11

Using Mircrosoft Internet Explorer using DWA (formerly known as Lotus iNotes) is quite simple - just open the prefences and activate DWA to be your systems mail client.

This works by adding a registry key to HKLM\Software\Clients\Mail which is beeing used by IE. For whatever reason this is a system wide setting that affects all users on a particular computer. IE is not able to direct to webpages directly - even not for Hotmail which is preconfigured. A local code has to be called. In case of DWA it is the iNotes6.dll which is beeing added to your browser as soon as you use DWA as it uses Active-X

When using Mozilla or Firefox, you can't use Active-X so the dll is not beeing downloaded to your computer. Like IE mozilla is not able to direct to a web page directly. but there is a solution: you can use an extension: WebMailCompose can do exactly what you need to send email using DWA by just clicking on an mailto link.

First step is to download and install the extension: http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/more-info/webmailcompose

Secend step is to configure the extension: Configure it using the following URL: http://www.brandlehner.at/mail/YourMailfileNameGoesHere.nsf//($Drafts)/$new/?EditDocument&Form=h_PageUI&PresetFields=h_EditAction;h_New,s_NotesForm;Memo,SendTo;^T

After restarting the browser the configuration is active.



PermaLink Do you skype?07.11.2004 12:53
