Using a policy to enable scheduled messages for Notes® users

To enable scheduled messages for IBM® Notes® users, use a Mail Settings document assigned to a policy in the Domino® directory. The directory must be upgraded to at least the Domino® 10 pubnames.ntf design. The Notes® user mail file must be upgraded to at least the Notes® 10 mail template (mail10.ntf) design.


  1. Open the Domino® directory.
  2. Click Configuration > Policies > Settings.
  3. Select a Mail Settings document in the view and click Edit Settings. Or, to add a new document, click Add Settings > Mail.
  4. Select Mail > Basics.
  5. In the Delivery Options section, click Yes in the field Allow users to schedule when messages are delivered.
  6. Click Save & Close.
  7. Assign the Mail Settings to a policy, if not done already.
  8. It can take up to 12 hours for the feature to take effect on Notes® clients. To push the update to clients immediately, enter the following command from the console of their home servers:
    tell adminp p mailpolicy


After the policy takes effect, when users send messages, they see the delivery option Delay delivery until to select a date to deliver them.
