Unfortunately, I have been shanghaied into using the notes client for email. I've done the usual googling to figure out a few things, but haven't come up with solutions, so am turning to this forum for a potential solution:
- How do I set it so that all email is automatically treated as plain ol' text, and not the formatted junk that it insists on doing? Failing this, how do I force it to use the fonts that I specify? I've tried setting it through preferences, but it keeps reverting to its default
- Can is set it up to use an external editor (vim) rather than what it has? I've found a few webpages from 6+ years back, but these solutions go through multiple jumps. I'd like something seamless
- How do I tell it not to change my signature? I format it in plain text, like the way it looks, but notes insists on putting it in its own fonts, screwing up the justification and then puts in line breaks in wierd places. I've tried both telling it to use a text file as well as putting in the signature in the preferences dialog, with no luck
these may seem like minor things, but they're bugging the heck out of me. I'm sure the lotus notes developers are great guys and all, but man, this thing sucks!
while I'm ranting: I tried to convince our admins to allow us to use any other email client, but switching the domino server to smtp will invalidate the support contract that we have! AAAARGGHHHHHHH
thanks for all pointers
