Issues with Lotus Notes 8.5.1 and Snow Leopard...

by slickard / September 5, 2009 10:04 PM PDT

I know that others are seeing the same issues I am...missing Notes icons in mail view, etc.

I am also experiencing extremely long program launch times.

Just curious if anyone is seeing that too.

Also, i'm wondering if downgrading to version 8.5 would help clear these problems up. Anyone know if these problems exist with Notes 8.5 vs. the beta version of 8.5 FP1?

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

Lotus Notes 8.5.1 issues with Snow Leopard
by 7485worth / October 29, 2009 5:31 AM PDT

Am also seeing issues with Lotus Notes 8.5.1 after installing Snow Leopard on 10/28/09. Downgrading to 8.5 probably won't help because that's where I first encountered these problems:

1) Cannot see attachment icons in the main mail screen

2) Cannot attach files to emails or to form pages in the Notes bulletin database

3) Cannot make check marks beside emails on main mail screen.

No other problems encountered thusfar, and I can receive emails with attachments and offload them with no problem.

Otherwise, Snow Leopard makes for much faster connections to my company's windows-based servers. Other operations too are faster and it freed up about 7 GB on my harddrive, just like the tech notes said it would.

Snow Leopard Update 10.6.2 fixes certain issues
by 7485worth / December 6, 2009 9:59 PM PST

To Mac Lotus Notes users:

After install of OS X Update 10.6.2, the Notes issues in points 1-3 were all solved after rebooting the computer.

Only remaining issue is compatibility for a print driver for a Canon i9900 bubblejet printer.
