Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: Enabled/Disabled a function to sync the IMAP folder with the Notes views.

In pre-8.5.2 Domino IMAP environments, and those who have this feature turned off in 8.5.2, mail messages that appear in the Sent, Drafts, and Trash IMAP folders do not stay in sync with the Notes client Sent, Drafts, and Trash views. The reason for this is, when an IMAP client Sends, Saves as Draft, or Deletes a mail message, the message is then stored in the special IMAP corresponding Sent, Draft, or Trash folder in the Notes mail database. Or, when a Notes client Sends, Saves as Draft, or Deletes a mail message, that message is stored in the corresponding Sent, Draft, or Trash view.

Since the IMAP client only deposits mail messages in a special IMAP folder and the Notes client only deposits them in views, then a user who uses both an IMAP client and a Notes client will never have these folders and views synchronized.

Resolving the problem
To enable this feature:
  • Add the following notes.ini parameter to the server that will be servicing the IMAP clients that want this feature turned on: EnableImapFolderSynch=1
  • Upgrade the mail templates to the latest mail template included with 8.5.2
  • Make sure that the IMAP client subscribes to the new hidden folders that are new to the 8.5.2 mail template. The folder names need to match exactly.

Once the feature is enabled, an IMAP user will see all the new messages in Sent, Draft, and Trash IMAP folders in sync with their Notes client Sent, Draft, and Trash views.

Default value:

EnableImapFolderSynch=0 / 1
