How to Properly Configure Your Notes 8.x Client
This document assumes you have Notes already installed and you want to make sure it isconfigured correctly. Even though there are an infinite number of combinations of Notespreferences, there is, in my opinion, a right way to have it set up and this is it. After you follow thisdocument carefully and adjust your settings, restart Notes.
Starting with your Notes Preferences:
*Note if you are not given the option to select some of the preferences below it probably means your email template was not upgraded to version 8.x when you upgraded your client. Skip to the sectionat the bottom titled
Here is how you apply the Notes 8 mail template design to your mail file if it wasnot done during the upgrade" then return here.
Select File - Preferences from the menu to pull up the Notes Preferences UI
Select Basic Client Configuration
1.Select Autosave and set the interval to every "5" minutes -- This feature saves you from losingyour work if Notes or Windows crashes in the middle of you composing an email. When yourestart Notes you will be prompted to recover any documents that were opened in edit modewhen you crashed.In the additional Options box, keep the setting that are already checked and then make sure youalso have these options checked --1.Make Internet URLs (http://.....) into Hotspots -- This will automatically make urls in the body of an email clickable without having to manually create a hotspot.2.Retain View column sorting -- This allows you to change your default column sort in a viewand have it "stick" that way the next time you open the view.3.Disable embedded browser for MIME mail -- If you are finding Notes is slow at opening internetemail messages, checking this setting will speed it up. In Notes 8.x, MIME mail by default isrendered by Internet Explorer (if you use Windows) and Safari (if you use Mac). Checking thisoption reverts the way Notes renders the MIME email back to how it did it in previous versions.Checking this option may adversely affect the fidelity of the rendering but it will positivelyenhance the speed.4.Invoke Notes on vCard files -- This allows you to double-click on a vCard file that someonesends to you and have Notes prompt you to add the contact to your Address Book.5.Enable Icon Popup Help in View -- This allows you to hover over any of the smarticons in theNotes interface and see a description of what the icon does.6.Compress images pasted into documents -- This setting makes it so that if you paste a screenshot into the body of an email, the size of the email will be 120K instead of 1200K7.Show check marks in margin for selected documents. This is optional. It allows you to selectmultiple documents in a view with one hand by dragging your mouse down the selectionmargin (the old fashioned Notes way), instead of using Ctrl-Click or Shift-click Windowsconventions
