Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 24 days ago.

you can use Gmail Imap with lotus.....but yahoo....not so much

Customer: replied 24 days ago.

Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 24 days ago.

yeah thats OUTLOOK!

Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 24 days ago.

Lotus is NOT outlook!

Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 24 days ago.

its still an EMail client....but its a DIFFERENT type....so....yeah just because it works on outlok means NOTHING

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
your expert answer is "not so much"
Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 24 days ago.

Lotus and Yahoo are direct competitors, and havent contracted for IMAP usage yet.

Unlike Gmail, and IBM (IBM own Lotus) they DO HAVE a contract.

So gmail allowed IBM theor IMAP source code so they could implement it into their lotus software

Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 24 days ago.

No, my official answer is you need to use a POP3 yahoo to use it with Lotus

Customer: replied 24 days ago.
OK... So then give me th settings to have GMAIL working on my LOTUS NOTES mail client, please
Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 24 days ago.

Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 24 days ago.
