capabilities on the Web

Whether at home, traveling or using

require flexible, fast access to corpo-

rate and personal information to make

better decisions and collaborate more

effectively—and, ultimately, make

your business more responsive while

saving time and money.

IBM Lotus ® Domino ® Web Access 7

software provides a feature-rich Web

client for IBM Lotus Domino server

software—IBM’s reliable, enterprise-

class messaging and collaboration

platform—that is built to improve

user and administrator productivity

and to help reduce your total cost

of ownership.

With Lotus Domino Web Access

software, you can equip your

employees with capabilities similar

to those included in IBM Lotus Notes ®

client software, delivered through

a Web browser. Employees can

send encrypted rich text e-mail,

schedule meetings, manage tasks

and collaborate with colleagues—

meetings, manage tasks and collaborate with colleagues— whether they are using their own workstations, Internet

whether they are using their own

workstations, Internet kiosks or PCs

that belong to other users. You can

provide your mobile workforce with

offline capabilities that expand their

access to key information and appli-

cations, so they can maintain a high

level of productivity.

Help save time and money with new

levels of scalability and performance

Speed response times on your

servers and workstations. The Lotus

Domino Web Access 7 mail template

has been engineered to increase

server scalability and use fewer

server resources to help boost perfor-

mance on workstations and servers.

Using NotesBench workloads, per-

formance metrics demonstrate that

Lotus Domino 7 server can support

up to 50 percent more Lotus Domino

Web Access users on the same

server hardware as Version 6.5.x, with

up to a 20 percent reduction in CPU

usage. 1 With client-side performance

enhancements in Versions 6.5.4 and

7, users have reported an improved

response time of up to 40 percent. 2

Collaborate with ease, using integrated instant messaging Allow employees to see who’s avail- able for real-time collaboration, without having to switch applications. Lotus Domino Web Access 7 software can provide visual indicators that show presence awareness— wherever a contact name appears in the in-box, calendar and address book. For example, employees using Lotus Domino Web Access for e-mail can immediately initiate online conversations by simply clicking on any live name in their in-boxes. Users have a similar capability when using their Web browsers to work with team discussion and reference database application templates supplied with Lotus Domino software. 3

Improve usability with an enhanced user interface In response to user feedback, IBM has enhanced the user interface in Lotus Domino Web Access 7 soft- ware. Presence awareness icons appear next to colleague names. Menus are available in more places on the screen and can be displayed in cascaded style. And at the top of the screen, a graphical status bar displays the percentage of your mail quota you have used.

With Lotus Domino Web Access 7 software, you can sort your in-box by subject and use attention indicators to help prioritize your mail messages. Attention indicators are visual cues that indicate whether you are the only recipient of a message, one of a

whether you are the only recipient of a message, one of a Lotus Domino Web Access

few recipients or one of many recipi- ents. With limited time to respond to e-mail messages, you can use this new feature to rapidly identify which messages may be more likely to require your immediate attention. This can help your employees to be more responsive and your organization to be more productive.

Act quickly to increase efficiency and responsiveness on daily tasks Help employees save time and manage their daily tasks more effi- ciently with enhanced calendar and mail capabilities. Features offered by Lotus Domino Web Access 7 software include:

A

single-click follow-up function

that makes it easy to mark an e-mail message to indicate further action

is

warranted.

Quick mail rules that allow you to let Lotus Domino Web Access software automatically process e-mail that meets specified criteria—by delet-

ing it, changing its priority or moving

it to a folder.

Using advanced mail and calendar features delivered through a Web browser, Lotus Domino Web Access 7 software users can:

View mail threads from within a message.

Create personalized stationery to use when composing e-mail.

Easily include attachments

in messages.

Forward non-mail objects such as calendar entries and contacts.

Delete a message and continue to the next item in the in-box.

Send mail from applications that support Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI), such as Microsoft ® Office software.

Save in-process meeting invitations as drafts.

Import country-specific corporate holidays.

Plus, administrators can control user access to attachments, rooms, resources and online meetings. 4

Protect your enterprise with leading- edge security features When you run software on a Web browser, security features matter. Lotus Domino Web Access software supports a variety of authentication options as well as encryption and digital signatures. And it provides an active content filter to help protect against potentially malicious content embedded an an e-mail message.

Lotus Domino Web Access software supports reading, creating, digitally signing and verifying signatures of Lotus Notes software-based encrypted mail messages. Ver- sion 7 includes additional security options and enhanced support for Internet standards such as Secure Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME). Users can read, encrypt, sign and verify signatures using Internet (X.509) certificates.

Lotus Domino Web Access software can help protect your enterprise security standards from being com- promised, even when your employees use public or shared devices. Even if the user forgets to press the logoff button, the system can be set up to run the security-related functions of a logoff when the last browser window is closed. The standard logoff button in Lotus Domino Web Access software can clear the browser cache and the system’s temporary files directory so that user data is not left behind.

Choose the operating system that’s right for your business Provide employees with access to rich messaging and collaborative functionality from an even wider variety of Web browsers. Lotus Domino Web Access 7.0.2 software supports the Firefox 1.0.x and 1.5 Web browsers from the Mozilla Corporation (on Microsoft Windows ® , Linux ® and Apple Macintosh systems), in addition to the Mozilla 1.7.x browser for Linux systems and the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser for Windows systems. 5

For supported Linux technology- based Web browsers, Lotus Domino Web Access 7 software provides new features such as drag-and-drop con- venience, an enhanced user interface for attachments and offline scheduled synchronization. Plus, for the first time with Lotus Domino Web Access 7.0.2 software, Macintosh users can access rich messaging and collaborative functionality right from their desktops.

Deploy and manage Lotus Domino Web Access software with ease Deliver collaborative services to your employees with rapid, no-touch deployment. With an intuitive Web- based interface, Lotus Domino Web Access software can help you reduce or avoid training costs typically asso- ciated with deploying dedicated Lotus Domino workstations. Plus, enhanced capabilities in Version 7 help make administration and management even easier. For example, administra- tors can easily track usage of Lotus Domino Web Access clients on their Lotus Domino servers.

Empower teams with Web-based access to information, while addressing costs To become more productive, employ- ees require fast, intuitive access to the right information—combined with effective collaboration and communi- cation capabilities. IBM Lotus Domino Web Access 7 software delivers the flexible, function-rich, browser-based messaging and collaboration client solution your employees need to efficiently manage business-critical information, online or offline. And it provides no-touch deployment to help lower training, administration and deployment costs.
