Run Mail Rules on existing mail

18 January 2018 Thomas Hampel
Maybe you noticed but with Notes 9.0.1 FP9 you can (finally) run mail rules on existing messages (see SPR #BLIO8TGDUW )
You can use mail rules to run actions on mail already in mail folders. This feature existis within the FP9 mail template and is hidden by default.
To use it, your administrator must upgrade your mail file to the Feature Pack 9 template.

Then the owner of the mail file will then need to enable this feature by clicking on File > Preferences > Mail.
In Mail Options, select Enable Run Rules On Existing Mail.

How to fix HTTP Server error "Cannot load resource file"

14 December 2017 Thomas Hampel
A colleague approached me with a problem where a Domino server did not start up the HTTP task after upgrading to 9.0.1 FP9

After upgrading a Domino server on Windows from 9.0.1 FP8 to FP9 the http task no longer starts up.
HTTP Server: Cannot load resource file. Exiting

For a different server the same FP9 installation worked fine.
Although the problem is not new, it seems nobody investigated the root cause yet...

Oliver Busse blogged about this problem in combination with FP3 install on Windows and IBM Technote 1298729 indicates that this problem is caused by a missing file: "Similar behavior can be seen in the Windows environment if the nstrings.dll file located in the Domino folder is damaged or missing."

In our case this file did exist and was not the root cause of the problem.

We wanted to avoid reinstalling the server from scratch as done by Oliver.
So we compared the program directory of the server with another server where FP9 has been installed succesfully and found the file "nrshttp.dll" is missing.

The solution is rather simple: just copy the file from a working server...

then start up the HTTP task and get yourself a coffee.

Improving the Mail Template 9.0.1FP9 - Manage Return Receipts according to RFC 2298

19 September 2017 Thomas Hampel
According to RFC 2298 it is recommended to show a dialog box where the recipient of a mail can decide weather or not a return receipt shall be sent back to the originator of the mail. This behavior is not currently part of the Standard IBM Mail template.

To add this feature you have to modify the following design elements:
  • Form “Memo”, Event "QueryOpenDocument", added the code shown below
  • Form “Reply”, Event "QueryOpenDocument", added the code shown below
  • Form “ReplyWithHistory”, Event "QueryOpenDocument", added the code shown below

Insert this code at the end of the QueryOpenDocument event.

Set doc = Source.document
If Source.isNewDoc Then
        '# don' t do anything, as this is a new document
        If doc.GetItemValue("ReturnReceipt")(0) = "1"  And doc.HasItem ("DeliveredDate") Then
                If MessageBox ("The sender of this message has asked to be notified when you read this message." & Chr(13) & "Do you wish to notify the sender?", 36, "Send Return Receipt?") = 7 Then
                        Call doc.ReplaceItemValue ("ReturnReceipt", "0")
                        Call doc.Save(True, False, true)
                End if
        End If
End If
