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.
