CoexLinks: Coexistence between IBM Notes/Domino and external email systems

In our complex world, your Notes email may be read using another email system; you need to be confident it will be accessible.

Many emails contain doclinks, created by applications or users, and those doclinks must work even if the recipient has Microsoft Outlook or Gmail or a generic web mail. CoexLinks will convert doclinks based on your needs to a format accepted by any recipient.

Don't rewrite applications or retrain users. CoexLinks will even convert automatic approval links created by a third party application without any modification or upgrade to the application.

Configure CoexLinks to send NDL files, Notes URL's or HTTP URL's, all without agents, scripts or on-going administration. Once configured, it just works. You may even forget CoexLinks is there.

The complexities of collaboration and coexistence, made a little bit simpler.

CXL#4 CoexLinks Fidelity: Preventing Data Loss in Notes/Domino Email (CoexLinks 3.6)


The high fidelity rendering promised by CoexLinks Fidelity 3.6 is often viewed as primarily about appearance, but it is also about the preservation of data integrity. This demo shows a number of examples where actual data loss occurs when certain elements are sent via email and rendered by either the IBM Notes 9.0.1 client or the IBM Domino 9.0.1 server. Please note, none of these data losses started in 9.0.1, and in fact the rendering is even worse in 8.5.3 and earlier. Also, for the sake of brevity, we did not include any data loss that was dependent on the recipient's email, such as checked and unchecked bullets appearing the same in Microsoft Outlook. All of the data loss shown in this demo will be apparent in any external email or even in IBM Notes/Domino at a customer's server if the email is sent via SMTP.
Problems shown have all been reported by actual Genii Software customers in rich text rendering, although the examples are contrived for effect.
Data issues fixed by CoexLinks Fidelity and shown in the demo:
  1. Image resources (disappear with both client/server rendering)
  2. Text and cell colors (light green/dark green confusion in client rendering)
  3. Table borders and cell borders (table borders disappear in both client/server rendering, cell borders rendered poorly in server rendering)
  4. Section titles (disappear completely in client rendering, render poorly in server rendering)
  5. Layout regions (disappear completely in both client/server rendering)
  6. Stored forms (not rendered by client except Body field if present)
  7. Buttons (disappear completely in both client/server rendering)

CXL#3 Message Store in CoexLinks Fidelity (CoexLinks 3.5)


The Message Store feature added to CoexLinks Fidelity 3.5 allows messages to be stored in a secure Notes database, and a doclink to the secure message added to the email sent through to Outlook, GMail or another external email system. This doclink is handled just as any other doclinks are by CoexLinks, so the recipient can access the email in a Notes client and act on it there.
The adminstrator can easily configure which Notes features will cause the email to be stored in the Message Store. The available categories are shown below. Since most of these features can be rendered in most cases, a company may decide only to store the higher priority messages.
Encrypted emails (always stored if Message Store enabled)
Action hotspots or buttons
Computed text
Layout regions
OLE object
Signed emails
Tabbed or Animated table
Section
Stored form
Text popups

If you would like to try out CoexLinks Fidelity and the Message Store feature, request an evaluation license and we can help get you set up and configured.
