How can I minimize Lotus Notes 8.5 to the system tray just like Microsoft Outlook does?

I've seen some advices that say I should install some utility that does it, is that the only way? no IBM add-on?

Lotus Notes doesn't have support for this. But you can do it with TrayIt application.

@MicTech, Thanks! I didn't give it a try yet, but not having to install this app looks like a great feature... (I do think this is a basic feature IBM should of added to there Clint...) – CD. Sep 13 '09 at 17:37

I don't know if there is such an add-on made by IBM, but a lot of programs can do this.

One of them is Eusing Software Auto Window Manager. It can save your desired settings so it'll work each time one of the specified windows opens.

Alltray is a workaround that will allow you do do this on linux.
