Default Reverse Sync E-mail

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all!! I'm a newbie looking for some tips.

My company uses Lotus Notes and I just got the Bold 9000. On my old blackberry (don't remember the model but it was ancient!) when I read an e-mail on lotus notes, deleted it, filed it, etc it was marked that way on my blackberry, or at least marked as read. I have always had any device set up so that the device "wins" to keep me from having to reread/resort emails on my computer after traveling. But now I'm having to reread/resort e-mails on my blackberry after working on my computer. Is there anyway to reverse sync my lotus notes to my blackberry? All I really want is to make my in-boxes look the same at any given time.

hi dlparr,

You will need you bb and notes admin to solve this problem but here are the steps:

1. run a fixup, compact and updall on all server replicas of your mail file and state db.
2. in notes, open each copy of your mail file and go to Edit, Unread Marks, Mark All Read. This will mark all emails as read.
3. right click on the workspace and select Stack Replica Icons.
4. Move your mail file to a seperate tab in notes.
5. Unstack the icons.
6. hold shift and click on any two copies of your mail file.
7. go to Edit, Unread Marks, Exchange Unread Marks.
8. If there are any other replicas of your mail file, then exchange the unread marks with one of the other copies until all replicas have 0 unread marks.
9. On your bb, go to messages and hightlight the date at the top and press the menu button and mark prior opened. This will mark everything on your bb as read.
10.Ensure that the BES has Manager permissions to your mail file.

Now you should be able to exchange your unreads in both directions.

I have found that this will solve the problem most of the time. If it doesn't there may be an entry in your mail file that has a corrupt date. This may cause the unread marks to not function properly. If this is the case, your domino admin will have to find that entry and delete it for the unread marks to work.

hope that helps.
