MYTHBUSTING Outlook IS NOT better than Lotus Notes, pt 6: Work from Anywhere, Any App, Any Time, Even while off-line
Mat Newman February 27 2012 11:00:00Following on from last weeks when the Internet disappears thank heaven for Lotus Notes post, today's Mythbusting session demonstrates how to create Replica's.
Lotus Notes has an amazing capability called Replication, which will allow you to take ANYTHING, NOT just your MAIL (Calendar/To-Dos/Contacts/Notebook) off-line, so you can work from Anywhere, Any App, Any Time, Even when Disconnected from a Network and regardless of the speed of your connection or even if your server is available.
There's also some great information over on Alan Hamilton's blog which discusses Lotus Notes Managed Mail Database Replicas, a feature that was introduced in Lotus Notes 8.5.2:
If you are using Notes 8.5.2 client you could consider adding the following lines to your NOTES.INI file (and restarting Notes) to get managed replicas going:
Alternatively ask your Domino Administrator to set up a policy to enable this.
For those who are unaware of what the setting above do, or what happens when your Admin applies a Managed Replica to your Lotus Notes client via policy, it's quite simple:
A Managed replica no longer "waits" for scheduled replication to replicate with your server. When your Notes client see's that you have new Mail on the server, Replication is initiated IMMEDIATELY for your mail database.
Work faster. Work from Anywhere. Replication - it's ALL about the Apps.
