Server name

The most common question is usually the server name to use.

When you opened your Lotus Notes, set you on your Workspace (where you have all your application icons).

Find your inbox icon. Inside the mail icon, you should see your name.

Depending on the configuration done by your administrator, you may also have the short name of your mail server.

Then open a Command Prompt window and type "ping xxx", where xxx is the short name of your mail server.

You will get in response:

pinging xxx.aaa.bbb…….. .com or .fr .eu ..., depending on the area of your business.
for example : xxx.aaa.acme.com

It is this name should be written in the setting of the application ZenNotes in the field server.


There could be only one reason you did not have access: your Lotus Notes administrator did not give you permission to access your messages from an external web browser (your name was not added to the ACL, Access Control System).
To verify this, simply type in your prefered web browser the following link:

https://xxx.aaa.acme.com/names.nsf?Login (SSL=ON) or http://xxx.aaa.acme.com/names.nsf?Login (SSL=OFF)

with xxx.aaa.acme.com : the full name of your mail server found with the ping command.

You should get the welcome screen asking for your Lotus iNotes userid (username) and password (password)
