    Home > How to Configure Lotus Notes Options in DesktopMirror
    As you know, we have several Lotus Notes synchronization software titles in the DesktopMirror family: And our LN Duplicates Cleaner and LN-CSV Converter software also work with Lotus Notes.

    To let the software load your Lotus Notes data, you need to configure the Lotus Notes related options. We will use the DesktopMirror for Lotus Notes and Outlook as an example to introduce how to specify the settings:

    Lotus Notes options 1

    • Notes.exe Path:

      The "Notes.exe Path" field contains the full path of the executable notes.exe. Generally, it should be detected automatically by DesktopMirror. DesktopMirror uses these path to call IBM Lotus Notes API. If DesktopMirror didn't detect this field correctly, please browse to specify the correct Notes.exe path.

    Lotus Notes options 2

    • Local address book path:

      If you need to work with Lotus Notes Contacts, this field is to specify the full path of local Lotus Notes Contacts database to be loaded by DesktopMirror. The default Contacts database name is "names.nsf". Generally, this field will be detected automatically by DesktopMirror. If you are using a custom Contacts database or remote Contacts database, please specify the path by yourself.

    • Calendar and Todo (Mail) database:

      If you need to work with Lotus Notes Calendar or Todos, this field is to specify the location of the Lotus Notes mail database. (Calendar and Todo information is contained in the Notes mail database.).

      The database could locate on your local computer or on a remote server. If it is on the server, the general format is "[Server Name]!![Database Name]".

      This is the difficult part, you may be not sure about where is your mail database, we have a basic guide for your reference: How to specify the location of Lotus notes mail database.

    • Notebook path:

      If you need to work with Lotus Notes Notebook, you need to specify the database file path of the Notebook. When you create the new Notebook, you should be asked to specify the name of the new Notebook database.

    Lotus Notes options 3

    • Your Password:

      If you need to enter password before using Lotus Notes, our software also need the password to access Notes information.

    • User ID File

      The user id file to be authorized to access Lotus Domino Server data. By default, the user.id file under Notes data directory is used. However, you may specify other user id file if you need to access Server data as other users.

      To get the user ID file you are using, please follow the steps below:

      1. Open Lotus Notes, and click the menu: [File]->[Security]->[User Security]. A dialog box will pop up.
      2. In the "Security Basics" area, you may find the file name of your user ID file.
