Last week I installed VoP 2.0 on multiple domino environments. In one environment I faced the issue that I always received the following error message when opening the locally installed VoP Web Client:
“Unable to load folders over network”
I took a look at the Developer Source in Google Chrome and could see the following error messages among other entries:
- folderController error: Folders are not available, folder controller promise rejected for unknown reasons., SyntaxError: Unexpected token ‘<‘
- Error occurs when fetching folder data: SyntaxError: Unexpected token ‘<‘
- Failed to get offline user context when load applications from appregsitry SyntaxError: Unexpected token ‘<‘
After opening a case @ HCL I received the very helpful entry for the NOTES.INI:
After setting this NOTES.INI entry and restarting the HTTP server everything was running fine. Thanks a lot for the quick and helpful support to HCL Support ( especially to Sudhir Kunale who was working in this case ).
Today I upgraded our Domino environment to the latest versions ( Domino V11, Traveler V11 and also VoP 1.0.9 ). OK, it´s late, but I was sick last week – hopefully this is a legitimate excuse 😉
A nice feature in VoP 1.0.9 is this one:
With this option you are able to change the password of your uploaded Notes ID inside the mail file and you can also see the installed version of VoP without having to use some “recalculation tables”:
Thanks a lot to the Dev Team !!

- Enhancements to the calendar event design preview in 1.0.8
IBM Verse 1.0.8 provides the following enhancements to the calendar event design preview feature.
- See names in your native language
In Verse 1.0.8, in work environments that use internationally-recognized names, your administrator may allow you to see names in their native languages and character sets. These are known as alternate names.
- See your archived mail
In Verse 1.0.8, if you archive your mail to an archive database on a server using another client such as iNotes, or if your administrator archives your mail on a server for you, you can now open the archive mail file from the folder panel to see the archived messages.
- More support for encrypted meeting notifications
There is additional support for encrypting meeting invitations and responses.
- Font sizes are consistent with Notes and iNotes
In Verse 1.0.8, the font size is the same as the font size in Notes and iNotes. For example, Arial 14 is rendered the same size in Verse, Notes, and iNotes. Previously, the Verse font size was smaller.
- Improved web browser experience enabled by default
An improved experience for users who access Verse from browsers on mobile devices is now enabled automatically.
- New password and Notes ID features
In Verse 1.0.8, you can change the password that you use to log in to Verse, change your Notes ID password, and manage your Notes ID.
- Server support for IBM i
Verse is now supported on a Domino 10.0.1 server running on IBM i version V7R2 or V7R3.
VoP 1.0.8 will be available in Q3/2019. You can get the complete informations about the new features on the official site here: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SS4RQV_1.0.8/whats_new/whats_new_in_version_1.0.8.html
