I'm a bit confused as what Lotus Notes is supposed to be.
At first I thought it was an email client. Then it was supposed to be a scheduling/calendar system with mail functionality built into it.
To set your inbox to show up at startup, you'll have to create a "bookmark" for it and then set it as "home page".
So now its starting to sound like a browser (and yes, it comes with its own browsing capabilities that nobody gives a rats ass about).
So how do you set it up?
- Click on the "Open" menu.
- Right-click on "Mail"
- Select "Set Bookmark as Home Page"
- Click "Yes" to confirm.
Proceed to beat your slack IT manager until he gets off his fat hairy arse and sets up a proper email client for your company.
Oh by the way this was for Lotus Notes 8.5.
