SPR# CEMABAVNMT RFC822 addresses with unquoted commas and semicolons in a friendly part causes an issue on the Domino server mail addressing. RFC822StripUnquotedDelimiters serves as a work around in fixing the issue

From the SPR# JALS658T7S – Mail is parsed into two separate addresses on a reply/reply with history.

This fix prevents splitting of RFC822 addresses caused by unquoted commas and semicolons in a friendly part. This fix requires setting the Notes.ini variable “RFC822StripUnquotedDelimiters=1”.

But on some cases, setting the parameter to RFC822StripUnquotedDelimiters=0 will workaround the issue for inbound SMTP when User in the TO field goes to the BCC field when entering a Domino 10.0.1 server

Permanent fix will be available in Domino 10.0.1 FP2. SPR# CEMABAVNMT

Domino Symmetrical Cluster and Directory Links

One issue I just saw during a Domino V10.0.1 migration ( Domino Server 10.0.1 FP1 with the new German Language Pack ):

the customer has a directory link file called “mail.dir” file located in the DATA directory which points to another disk:


There all new mail databases are created. I now activated the RepairCleanup task and the “repaired” ( because not existing mail databases ) have been successfully created from the cluster member, but not in the directory from the directory link. Instead of the directory from the Directory Link, a new directory “mail” was created in the DATA directory:

01_New directory mail
Here´s the excerpt from the CONSOLE.LOG:

02_Newly created databases from the Repair Task
The mail file is not listed in the directory from the directory link:
02_Missing database in the directory from the directory link
So it seems that the the RepairCleanup does not respect directory links. I now changed the cluster symmetry to only log missing or corrupt files in the log and will open a case.
If you can also see this problem you can refer to case number TS002195477.
Today I received the information that this issue has been proposed to be fixed in Domino V10.0.1 FP2.

Error (0xc000007b) running the KYRTOOL.EXE

Today I ran into the issue on a new notebook that I was not able to run the KYRTOOL.EXE from the Notes program directory.

I copied over the 64bit version ( Windows 10 Pro 64-bit ) and always received the following error message “The application is unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)…”.

After some investigation I just copied over the 32bit version of the KYRTOOL.EXE and everythink was running fine again. Solution is very ease >> IBM Notes is a 32bit application and therefore you have to use the 32bit KYRTOOL.EXE.

Some Verse Android users are getting locked out during initial setup on Android 8 and Android 9 devices

Due to some security updates in the Android 8 and Android 9 OS sometimes Verse users are locked out during the initial sync.


In the latest Android security update changes were made that affect the response flow for Android’s Device Administrator capability. These changes are causing the Verse Android application to believe that the Device Administrator is not fully enabled and communicating this to the IBM Traveler server which is then locking out the users from further synchronization.

The error message the user may encounter might look similar to the following:
” Device Android_6216408d7fda7bb3 for User ID CN=USERXXXX is locked out for security reasons. Device security violation(s): Device Password, Wipe.”

If a user experiences this situation they should:

Open the Android Settings application and search on “device admin apps”
Tap on the result to open the “device admin apps” settings screen
Tap the IBM Verse Security entry and select Deactivate, to disable the IBM Verse device administrator temporarily.
Tap the IBM Verse Security entry and select Activate.

At this point the initial configuration that had been started will be removed and the user can launch the Verse app to go through initial configuration again and this time will be able to successfully complete the setup without being locked out.

IBM is working on updates to the Verse Android application to respond to this change in Android and will provide an updated version to resolve this issue shortly.

Great publications in the last days

IBM/HCL just release the following enhancements in the last days:

Domino AppDev Pack 1.0.1 for Linux and NEW: 1.0.1 for Windows

> Link to the official announcement: https://ibm.co/2WE4iio

IBM Verse on Premises 1.0.7 with the following enhancements:


  • Enhancements to importing internet calendar events
    In this release, you can import internet calendar events from an .ics file that is attached to a mail message, in addition to importing from an .ics file on your computer. Also, using either import method, you can import up to 100 events from one .ics file. The previous limit was 50 events.
  • Original times shown when repeat meetings are rescheduled
    When a repeat meeting is rescheduled, attendees see the original times followed by the new times when they open the reschedule notice.
  • Read messages marked as “Prevent copying” or “Keep Private”
    When IBM® Notes® users and IBM iNotes® users send “private” messages that cannot be copied, IBM Verse® users can now read those messages. Previously, the messages could be read only through Notes or iNotes.
  • Attachment name used as message subject if no subject provided
    If a new message with an attachment doesn’t include a subject, the attachment name (minus the file extension) is used as the subject. If the message has multiple attachments, the first attachment listed is used.
  • Option to download all attachments at once
    When there are multiple attachments in a message, a Download All option is available to download all of them at once. Previously, you had to download each attachment separately.
  • Improved integration of forwarding addresses
    When a person has a forwarding address – used to deliver mail to an external address – the person’s forwarding address and primary directory address can now both be shown.
  • Filter by unread messages after searching
    You can now filter search results to show only unread messages. Previously, you could show unread messages only for the entire Inbox or an entire folder.
  • Clearer prompt to search directory when using typeahead
    When you use typeahead in an addressing field to find names, the prompt to search the directory is clearer.
