Currently, in Notes 6.x and 7.x a Notes user is being prompted if he want's to try to switch to another server in case the current server does not respond. This prompts says:

  • The server with this database is no longer responding. Should Notes switch to a replica on another server?

Notes 8 introduces a new notes.ini parameter HidePromptFailoverInc =1 that eliminates the prompt by defaulting to yes.

It seamed ORDB (ORDB.org was shut down on December 18, 2006) changed since yesterday their behaviour, and instead of timing out, they are blocking all IP addresses (every e-mail server queried is being reported as an open relay). If your mail infrastructure uses ORDB, the sender will get a message like this one (this is an example blacklisting the Gmail servers): 

Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 13): 550-Message rejected because ag-out-0708.google.com [72.14.246.240]:20081 is
550-blacklisted at relays.ordb.org see ordb.org was shut down on December 18,
550 2006. Please remove from your mailserver.

The reason behind this active behaviour change is not clear yet, if we get more information we will update this entry here.




The new BlackBerries (8100 Pearl, 8300 Curve and maybe some other which I didn´t use) are prone to memory leak issues where email messages along with SMS & PIN get deleted for no apparent reason.

Rim released now a technote (KB13814) that this is a known problem. BUT at the moment there is no solution. Only some workarounds:

  • reducing the size of allocated media memory to the lowest setting
  • using a microSD memory card
  • reboot the device after x days

 

More information can be found here (technote KB13814) .

 




Do you have a Sametime 8 Server? Do you like the Sametime Unyte advertisement on your Sametime Server?

 

Sametime Unyte Link

No? Then open the sametime.ini and search for EnableUnyteHomepageUI=1 change it to EnableUnyteHomepageUI=0, restart your server and the advertisement is away.
