Configuring iNotes

IBM® iNotes® (previously IBM Domino® Web Access) provides IBM Notes® users with browser-based access to Notes mail and to Notes calendar and scheduling features. Administrators specify mail policy and security policy settings as well as notes.ini file settings to complete the full implementation of IBM iNotes.

iNotes users can send and receive mail, view their calendars, invite people to meetings, create to-do lists, keep a notebook, and work offline. After being set up for iNotes, a user can use both the standard Notes client and a Web browser to access their mail files. Because both the Notes client and iNotes operate on the same underlying user mail file, read and unread marks remain up-to-date, regardless of which client they use to read their mail. Users can also synchronize contact information in their Notes Contacts with information in their iNotes contacts list.

While users simply need a name and Internet password to log on and use iNotes, a Notes ID is required if a user wants to work offline. Be sure to create a Notes ID for each user when registering new users with the iNotes mail template.

iNotes includes two modes: full mode and ultra-light mode. The full mode provides a full set of features including mail, calendar, notebook, contacts, and to do list. The ultra-light mode is designed for use on a mobile device and is initially supported on the Apple iPhone or iPod touch. Ultra-light mode is also the accessible mode, available on Microsoft™ Windows™ operating systems (Win32) using Mozilla Firefox 3.0 or later.
