Lotus Notes: Mark email as read on preview

Lotus Notes: Mark email as read on preview.

If you’re a native Microsoft Outlook user like myself it might take some time to adjust to a transition over to Lotus Notes. One setting I notice most users are greatly accustomed to is mark email as read on preview. Tired of having to open an email to mark it as read on lotus notes?

Do you want it marked as read automatically after you preview it? Here’s how..

Follow the next 5 steps to find and modify this setting.

1. In Lotus Notes click “File”
2. Select Preferences.
file preferences

3. A new box will appear. On the left menu highlight “Basic Notes Client Config”
4. On the right side locate and highlight”Mark documents read when opened in preview pane”. If this setting is checked it will enable the feature. If you want to turn it off click on it again until the check mark dissapear.
5. Click ‘OK’ to save your setting
mark documents read on review

    Hey, that helped me a lot..but do you also have a solution to “mimic” the “clean up folder/conversation”-function from Outlook in lotus? I am missing that, too.
    Would be gorgeous!
