Notes Client / email 


Allow users to have multiple signature files which they can easily choose from

:Notes Client / Mail
: email, signature
Alan Lepofsky8175 - 02 2007 / (11)
I'd like to have a drop down list which enables me to choose the signature I want added to the email. (or blog/forum post)   Today I get around this by using my Paste Information application, but I'd rather have this integrated.

Option of which Email address to use on Send

:Notes Client / Mail
: email, notes, client, lotus
Keith Brooks6439 - 01 2007 / (8)
It would be nice to not need 5 or more location documents for all my emails.
While I can have one inbox, I can not have multiple outgoing email names/addresses from that one box, thus 5 different location docs/dbs, etc.
I can make personal stationery, but not personal email addresses?

Add some views into the "Views" section of the Notes 8.5 mailbox

:Notes Client / Other
: email, views
Stephen Bailey1802 - 22 2012 / (8)
Another simple one.
By default, when you open an un-customised Notes 8.5 mailbox, the "Views" section doesn't contain any views. Simply put, it should!
Some examples might be:
By Sender
By Size
By Attachment
By Month
Mail Threads

Remember "show images" for email addresses

:Notes Client / Other
: email, htmlemail, images
Scott Cochrane1847 - 13 2008 / (7)
I like the fact that the notes client doesn't immediately show images on an html email.  Especially as I might be looking at a bit of junk etc.
But I don't want to have to right-click "Show Images" everytime I receive an email from a trusted source ...

Lotus Notes - delayed / scheduled send

:Notes Client / Mail
: lotus notes, delayed, scheduled agents, send, email, send-by
Tom Randall205 - 16 2011 / (7)
I have been thinking and talking with colleagues and one useful tool/add on would to be able to draft an email (save it) and schedule Notes to send it delayed at a specific time.

The benefits include: being able to send personalised reminders to individuals; send ...

Allow users to define the font characteristics for new mail and replies.

:Notes Client / Mail
: email
Alan Lepofsky8175 - 02 2007 / (6)
This would be similar to permanent pen, but you would not have have to turn it on/off.
Mac makes this very simple.  (as does Outlook I beleive)

Tune out of conversation

:Notes Client / Mail
: email, rules
Richard Kernick139 - 29 2007 / (6)
Enable easy creation of a rule to tune out of an email thread.
If the thread is of no interest (and I keep getting messages because someone chose to stick me in the cc list) I rightclick, choose 'Tune out'. This creates a rule based on the message ...

Better Notification of Unsent mail

:Notes Client / Mail
: email, sent, unsent
Keith Brooks6439 - 07 2009 / (6)
I recently experienced irate users who were unaware that their mails had not been sent due to some ISP issues.
The users were workign remotely and replicated to send mail.
They were upset because Notes never tells the user in an obvious way that their mail has NOT been ...

Drag emails to Day-At-A-Glance

:Notes Client / Other
: day-at-a-glance, email, meeting, appointment
Ove St°rholt603 - 10 2008 / (5)
It should be possible to drag an email og generic document and drop it in the Day-At-A-Glance sidebar plugin.
Even better; If the Day-At-A-Glance plugin had the possibility for showing time-slots, the document could be dragged directory to the time of day you wanted.

Make it possible to select internet sender address when sending mail

:Notes Client / Other
: email, internet, sender
Jens-B. Augustiny848 - 15 2008 / (5)
Especially in the SMB market, where people are working for/under different organisations, but using only one mailfile/Notes-Identity it would be nice to have a way to select from different sending addresses, when sending to the internet, like some other mail clients do (drop down list or so).

Mail rules run after reading

:Notes Client / Other
: mail, rules, email, mail rule, inbox, folders
Zoltan Szabo4849 - 11 2011 / (5)
Hi All,
I'm sure You have the same problem if You have a large complex folder structure. You got  a new mail, but the mail rule moves it into a folder somewhere deeeeeeep....then it's hard to find. Of course You can use "copy to folder" but then your inbox ...

Update the inbox on local replicas with new mail arriving..

:Notes Client / Mail
: email, inbox, local-replica
Scott Cochrane1847 - 13 2008 / (5)
I have heard from several people and my own albeit limited experience backs this up: "outlook just seems to receive the email - none of this sending and receiving".  This is in connection with situations where the user is running a local replica of their mail file.
What I ...

Remove the "Reply with Internet-Style History" button

:Notes Client / Mail
: reply, mail, email, endusers
David Vasta2524 - 02 2007 / (4)
Did IBM do this just so you can annoy people with the ">' everywhere and to make it worse they give you and option in the preferences to change the charater. It's all pointless. RELPY and REPLY with HISTORY is fine.

Should spell check in Lotus Notes remember your choices when you save as a draft?

:Notes Client / Other
: spell check, email
Bob Balfe704 - 04 2010 / (4)
The behavior is, once you do a spell check, save the email as draft and go back to that email later you should not have to re-check the words you already have signed off on.

Emailing a subform from the current UI document

:Notes Client / Other Database Applications
: email, subform, copy, clipboard
Chad Martin60 - 11 2008 / (4)

I'm sure most of you are familar with the simple @Command([MailForward]) function. @Command([MailForward]) forwards the current document by placing its entire contents into a mail memo which the user then addresses and sends. I was tasked with duplicating this functionality, but for a subform on the current document. Futhermore, the ...


Provide keyboard shortcuts for common mail tasks

:Notes Client / Mail
: mail, keyboard, shortcut, email
Alan Lepofsky8175 - 08 2008 / (3)
I'd like to be able to click r to reply, a to reply to all, etc... like Gmail.

Make copying attachments work better

:Notes Client / Mail
: attachments, attachment, email
Alex Kassabov1327 - 21 2009 / (3)
I want to be able to right click on an attachment in an email message, select Copy, and then paste the attachment into a new message.  Even in 8.5 I often get other pieces of the original email together with the attachment.  The only way to reliably do it is ...

Replace notes hierarcial names with email address

:Notes Client / Mail
: email, hierarchial, replace
Thomas Adrian2196 - 22 2009 / (3)
Notes hierarcial addressing is very confusing to users and must be replaced with standard email format.
IBM already have problems with Lotus traveler as the iPhone mail app only support email format, and they wiill run into even more problem in the future as they have promised to support ...

Add auto word completion feature to mail body

:Notes Client / Mail
: mail, email
Subrahmanya Udupa59 - 06 2013 / (3)
I like the auto word completion feature in Symphony documents. It makes typing easy when we have to type certain words again and again.
It would be nice to have same feature for mail body editing.

Fix HTML mail rendering

:Notes Client / Other
: client, email, rendering
Jason Hook2740 - 07 2007 / (2)

Based on some recent experience the Notes client does a very poor job of rendering HTML mail.  As far as I can tell the problem relates to the clients interpretation of inline css.

Assuming that an email contains compliant CSS 1.0 instructions and XHTML I'd expect it to render well and currently it ...
