Install IC4 Lotus Notes Plugins on Mac OS X 10.8.x

Today Luis Benitez annouced the new Connections 4 Plugins for Lotus Notes.

The zip-file contains all three operating system installer. Windows, Linux and Mac, but i had no success to install through xpd.mac-addon.pgk, because the preinstall script stop the installation.

You can open this file in finder:

Now you can copy the updatesite folder to an other place and use File – Application – Install in Lotus Notes. Point the Install to the updatesite folder and install the whole package. I have to restart twice, but after this i can use the new Status Update, Files and Activities Plugins.

Created new mail rule

Today i created a new mail rule in IBM Lotus Notes. I hate mails sent with high importance and i have some people which are sending all there mail with high importance!

The new traveler app adds “Dringend” to each mail marked with high importance. I read my mails all 10 to 20 minutes and i normally answer them in under two hours, but i do not answer faster, when i see a red “!”

Get rid of this:

I created a mail rule to remove the high importance tag. Thanks Notes!

Meeting delegation with comments (Notes 8.5.x)

I think there is a wrong message in meeting delegation with comments function.
When you delegate a meeting to someone else and add a comment, then the Comment window shows following info text:

“The delegation notice will go out to the delegee and chair will receive the information about this delegation.”

So people who add a comment think the text will be sent to the person which get delegated. What do you think? Who will receive the comment?

Yes right, the chair will get it, not the delegee.

I think this is very confusing for the users and perhaps they add comments which shouldn’t be read of the chair!
