In Lotus Notes 8.5.3, I used to be able to put a check mark on multiple messages if I wanted to move or delete them.

How do I add this column back to the far left of my inbox?

what program do you use to read you email? – Steve Rathbone Jun 13 '12 at 14:47
You need MUCH more detail if anyone is going to be able to answer. Start with which program it concerns. – Daniel Andersson Jun 13 '12 at 14:47
by notes do you mean you are using Lotus Notes? – madmaze Jun 13 '12 at 14:49
Sorry - Lotus Notes version 8.3.5 – Linda Jun 13 '12 at 15:11
Sorry again! I meant v8.5.3 – Linda Jun 13 '12 at 15:18

Select "Preferences" from the File menu.

Click on "Basic Notes Client Configuration" in the left-hand pane.

Scroll the slider in the "Additional Options" box down to the bottom.

Click on "Show check marks in margin for selected documents".

You might have quit and restart your Notes client for this to take effect.
