Mat Newman July 19 2011 07:49:28Some email going back and forth with a contact during the last few days prompted this post. I knew they used Notes, and just could NOT help myself to educate them on some settings that would fix their 'ugly' email. It's not the first time I have come across this scenario. Users complain that its Notes' fault for a lot of things, and often respond with the misguided 'I use Lotus Notes and it doesn't ...'
Yes, Notes DOES do pretty email, you just need to make sure your settings are correct.
- Ensure that your preferences have send 'HTML and Plain Text', and
- Your current Notes location (essentially the Notes account settings) is configured to use MIME for the Internet message format.
The two screen shots below demonstrate how to make these changes:
First - from the Menu - choose: File -> Preferences, then
So if you're sending 'Ugly' Notes email to internet recipients, change a couple of settings and enjoy!
(Note: for the Admins out there - if your Domino server is set to send 'Plain Text' only - SHAME on you! It's 2011 dude - or dude-ette - not 1989!)
