Some Notes and Domino 8 Technotes

Technotes for ND8 have been making their way out for the last couple of weeks, here are some that popped up yesterday covering some of the new features in ND8 1. Article on message recall how it works and how to configure, and of course read the fine print

Because Lotus Notes mail can be read offline, with the user disconnected from a network, the read and unread status of a local replica of a mail file can be different from that of a server-based copy until replication takes place. Thus, a recall request sent to the server may report that a message was unread when, in fact, the user read it offline.

After much debate mail recall will be enabled by default, so make sure you check those settings when upgrading or installing. 2. Recent contacts is a new feature in Notes 8 which saves your 2000 most recent contacts to a special view in your inbox, see these technotes on deleting recent contacts, and on disabling the feature.. 3. Here is an article on Domino Fast Server Restart which is supposed to allow a new instance of Domino to start while a crashed instance is still running NSD. Make sure to check this point on memory requirements at the end of the note

To ensure satisfactory performance of the new Domino instance while NSD is collecting data, it is recommended to have double the amount of physical memory available. Specifically, if the Domino instance uses up to 4 GB of physical memory, it is recommended that the new instance of Domino has access to an additional 4 GB of physical memory.

4. Finally for blackberry users, here is a note on BES support under Domino 8

    I’ve noticed the technotes coming through as well. Mail recall should be interesting and prove to be a bear. I noticed the memory note as well on the Fast Restart.
