How to Tell How Much More Lotus Notes Email Memory to Delete

Once you start getting that memory warning message on Lotus Notes mail you will want to start deleting as many pesky emails as possible starting with the mail / files that take up the most gbs. You need to do this until you are under the memory threshold again. If you don’t, you won’t be able to save ‘sent’ emails, update your calendar, enable / disable features etc. on Lotus Notes.

The question that comes up of course is how many emails exactly do I need to delete? Or, put another way, how many GBs do I need to recover on Lotus so that I can start saving mail and using features again? 

Checking to see how much more memory you need to recover is easy to do but it isn’t very intuitive. You might not be able to find it on your own. I can show you how to figure this out here. 

I did notice that this did not work quite as smoothly when I migrated to Lotus Notes 8.5. Scroll down further if you don't find what you are looking for here:

Step 1
Go to FILE in the upper left corner of Lotus. A drop down menu will appear. 

Step 2
In the drop down menu, hover your cursor over DATABASE. When you do this a side menu will appear to the right.  

Step 3
Click on PROPERTIES on the side menu 


Lotus Notes Out of Office Message Won't Disable or Enable

If you are trying to go away on vacation  or leave the office for an extended period of time with no access to email, you will definitely want to enable your away message on Lotus Notes Mail to indicate you are not available via email. Here's a post to learn how to put your out of message on if you don't know how.

Conversely if yo have returned to the office you want to be sure you disable your out of office message so that people know you are back. 

Let's make sure you are disabling properly before we look at another way to fix your problem. To Disable, first be sure you are in any screen that allows the “Tools” button to show in the top right corner of your Lotus Notes screen (inbox, send, junk mail, trash, etc views will all allow you to see the “Tools” button)Click the “Tools” button


What You Need for Domestic LTL Truck Shipment Quote

So you want to have the right information ready to go when asking a trucking company or other carrier service for a rate quote?

Look, I'll be honest, I'm not a logistics expert but I do know a bit about getting a price for transportation of goods within the United States. This process really does not apply to international shipments worldwide. Overseas exports and imports require additional information for transport that I won't include here.

Also, this is best suited for domestic (USA) LTL (less than truckload) shipments using common carrier trucking service.

Some transport services need more information, some need less, some need more specific information than I detail here. They will talk you through this process if this doesn't give you everything you need. That said, if you have this information below, you'll be off to a good start. Check with your preferred carrier or third party logistics company and if there is some other freight information they need they'll tell you.

These are the things at a minimum your carrier will want to know when you ask them to quote what it will cost you to ship goods via truck.

1. The address the goods are shipping from (typically they just need origin zip code)

2. The destination the goods are shipping to (typically they just need the destination zip code)

3. The gross weight of your shipment


Removing Uninstalling Apps From LG Fusion Cell Phone or Other Wireless

OK, my guess is that you have downloaded a bunch of apps and found that you no longer want them on your phone anymore. It is likely that you either hate (or simply no longer want) the application or you need to open up some additional memory space on your cell phone. I’ll run through how to remove / uninstall apps.

This works for my LG Fusion (android) wireless phone so if you have that type of phone this method will work. If you have another kind of phone, it might work as well. Try it and find out. There are two ways you can do this, I’ll run through both. Heres the first way to get an app off your cellphone.

 Step 1
Press the “Apps” icon on your touch screen. Mine is in the lower right corner

Step 2 
Then look for your “App Manager “ Icon located under “Tools” on your touch screen. Press “App Manager” 

Step 3 
Now look for the “Download” Icon/button on the screen that appears. This shows at the top of my cell phone touch screen. Press “Download” 

Step 4 
A list of all your downloaded apps will appear. Press “Uninstall” Follow rest of prompts and your application will be off your phone.

There is also another way to erase an application off your wireless phone. I feel like there are more steps to this method but in some ways it is a little more straight forward.

 Step 1
See the button in the lower left corner of your LG Fusion? The one with the square on it? Press it
Button on lower left
 Step 2 
Then press “Settings” (You should be able to find it easy but if not it is the icon with the sprocket / gear under the word “settings” 

Step 3 
Scroll to and press the “Applications”button 

Step 4
Press “Manage Applications” 

Step 5  
Press “Downloaded” (you should already be on this tab but if not, press it) 

Step 6 
Choose your app that you wish to uninstall by scrolling to it and pressing it 

Step 7
Press “Uninstall” Follow rest of prompts then you are done.
