iNotes Web Access
iNotes Web Access provides Notes users with browser-based access to Notes mail and to Notes calendar and scheduling features. iNotes Web Access users can send and receive mail, view their calendars, invite people to meetings, create to do lists, keep a notebook, and work offline. After being set up for iNotes Web Access, a user can use both the standard Notes client and a Web browser to access their mail files. Because both the Notes client and iNotes Web Access operate on the same underlying user mail file, read and unread marks remain up-to-date, regardless of which client the user uses to read the mail. Users can also synchronize contact information in their Personal Address Book with information in their Contact List in iNotes Web Access.

While users simply need a name and Internet password to log on and use iNotes Web Access, a Notes ID is required if a user wants to work offline. Be sure to create a Notes ID for each user when registering new users with the iNotes Web Access template.

For more information, see the topic, Registering iNotes Web Access users .


iNotes Web Access requires user log-on and logout security. When a user logs onto iNotes Web Access, they must enter their name and Internet password, as specified in their Person document. The login names that the server accepts as valid depend on the setting in Internet authentication field on the Security tab of the Server document.

For more information, see the topic Controlling the level of authentication for Internet clients.

When the user logs out of iNotes Web Access, iNotes closes the browser and removes the user's log-on credentials and private data from the browser's cache. By deleting this data, iNotes prevents an unauthorized user from using cached information to access the user's mail file.

Note The removal of private data from the browser's cache and more secure data clearing capabilities are available only if the user accepts the iNotes ActiveX control.

iNotes Web Access will not remove some personal data unless the user explicitly selects "Logout for Shared PCs or Kiosk Users." With this selection, users can choose one of two secure logouts:

You can also redirect users to a specific Web page after they logout.

For more information, see the topic Redirecting users to a Web page after logout.

Integration with DOLS and Sametime

To provide users with the ability to work offline and use instant messaging, you can integrate iNotes Web Access with Domino Off-line Services (DOLS) and Sametime. DOLS enables users to work offline, disconnected from the network, and provides many replication features that Notes users expect when working in the Notes client. Sametime provides integrated, real-time chat features for iNotes Web Access users. Neither DOLS nor Sametime are required for iNotes Web Access use.

For more information, see the topic Setting up Sametime for iNotes Web Access.
