COMPLETE STEP BY STEP GUIDE ON HOW TO CONFIGURE GMAIL IMAP ON LOTUS NOTES 8x

 

 

Go to local Contacts book and create two accounts for accepting incoming email and sending outgoing email on Gmail. Names are not so important, but the configuration on the two accounts is!

 

1. Creating account for Incoming Gmail:

 

Click Open à Contacts à Advanced à Accounts à New Account

 

The Basics tab

 

a. Account name: Can be anything (I chose ”In Gmail”)

b. Account server: imap.gmail.com

c. Login Name: Your gmail email address (complete with the @gmail.com)

d. Password: Your gmail password

e. Protocol: IMAP Online

f. SSL: Enabled

g. Only from Location(s): leave only the * (first) field checked

 

Protocol Configuration tab:

 

a. Sent folder name:    [Gmail]/Sent Mail

b. Drafts folder name:  [Gmail]/Drafts

 

Advanced Tab: This is the most important tab.

 

a. Port Number: 993

b. Accept SSL site certificates: Yes

c. Accept expired SSL certificates: Yes.

d. Send SSL certificates when asked (outbound connections only): No.

e. Verify account server name with remote server's certificate: Disabled

f. SSL protocol version: V3.0 with V2.0 handshake

Click on Save and Close to save the document and exit.

 

Now you will need to create another account document to handle the outgoing email.

 

2. Creating account document for Outgoing Gmail:

 

Click Open à Contacts à Advanced à Accounts à New Account

 

The Basics Tab

 

a. Account Name: Can be anything. I chose ”Out Gmail”

b. Account server name: smtp.gmail.com

c. Login Name: Your gmail email address (complete with the @gmail.com)

d. Password: Your gmail password

e. Protocol: SMTP

f. SSL: Enabled

g. Only from Location(s): leave only the * (first) field checked

 

Advanced Tab: This is the most important tab.

 

a. Port Number: 465 or  587 (Both are SSL ports and both work)

b. Accept SSL site certificates: Yes

c. Accept expired SSL certificates: Yes.

d. Send SSL certificates when asked (outbound connections only): No.

e. Verify account server name with remote server's certificate: Disabled

f. SSL protocol version: V3.0 with V2.0 handshake

 

3. Once these two accounts are created, create a location document. The

steps to create are:

 

Click Open à Contacts à Advanced à Locations à New Location

 

Basics Tab:

 

a. Location Type: Local Area Network

b. Location Name: Can be anything (I chose ”Gmail”)

c. Internet Mail Address: Your complete gmail email address

Leave the rest as it is.

 

Servers Tab:

 

Home/Mail server: imap.gmail.com

Leave the rest as it is.

 

Ports tab:

 

No changes (ensure TCPIP is checked)

 

Mail Tab (Most important):

 

a. Mail file location: Local

b. Mail file: InGmail.nsf – in this case (if you specified a different account name than the one I provided here for the incoming mail account, enter the file name of your proxy database file).

Regarding the Mail file name, Lotus Notes help states that ”If this is a separate location for your Internet IMAP Online mail, enter the file name of your IMAP proxy application.”

To find the name of your proxy database (application), go to Accounts and try to delete the incoming mail account you just created. A popup window will appear notifying you that this action will also delete the corresponding proxy database, e.g. xxxx.nsf. Note the name of the proxy database file, and click on cancel).

c. Internet domain for Notes addresses when connecting directly to the Internet: gmail.com

d. Send Outgoing mail: directly to Internet

e. Transfer outgoing mail if [1] messages pending

Leave the rest of the fields as it is.

 

6. There is no need to change the rest of tabs. Click on Save and Close to create the document.

Change to the the new location (Open à Applications à Workspace à double click the name of the incoming mail account newly created) and you will see your Gmail emails getting downloaded.

 

7. You can create a folder named [Gmail]/All Mail folder in the left folders pannel, to sync the new Lotus account with your All Mail label in Gmail.

8. Also, sometimes some messages appear as white text on a white ground or black text on a black ground. To fix this, go into File à Preferences à Basic Notes Client Configuration and put a check mark next to "Disable embedded browser for MIME mail". You don't have to close the client, just save the change and re-open the message.
