When you visit a website, the server may place a cookie on your hard drive. These very small files (which got their nickname from the trail of cookie crumbs you might leave behind you) contain information unique to you, which the web server will "read" to recognize you when you revisit the site. Cookies must be enabled on your computer to view certain websites. Follow these steps to enable cookies on the browser version you are using.

Internet Explorer 6.0 Click "Internet Options" on the Tools menu. Select the "Privacy" tab. Make sure the privacy level is no higher than "Medium High." Click the "OK" button. b> FireFox 1.5 b> Select "Options" on the Tools menu. Click on the "Cookies" tab. Make sure the box to "Allow sites to accept Cookies" is checked. Click "OK." b> Netscape versions 6 and 7.1 b> Select "Preferences" on the Edit menu. Click the "Privacy & Security" tab. Then click "Cookies." Click on the box to "Enable All Cookies." Click "OK."
Enable Cookies in Browser b> Web browsers store cookies from websites you visit on your computer. Cookies can store a website's preferences, your login state on the site or track your browsing activity across a website. Many websites, particularly ones that require you log in, need cookies enabled in your browser before you can log in. Cookies are enabled by default on all major browsers, but you can also enable them if they've been disabled from your browser's options window.

Click the gear icon at the top right corner of the Internet Explorer window and select "Internet Options." Click the "Tools" menu if you don't see a gear icon. Click the "Privacy" tab at the top of the Internet Options dialog. Drag the Settings slider to the bottom to enable all cookies. You can also set the slider to medium or low to allow most cookies, except certain types of cookies that can be used to track you. Most websites should work properly at medium. Click "OK." Mozilla Firefox b> Click the "Firefox" menu button and select "Options." Click the "Tools" menu if you don't see the Firefox menu button. Click the "Privacy" panel icon at the top of the options window. Click the drop-down box to the right of Firefox Will and select "Use Custom Settings for History." Enable the "Accept Cookies From Sites" and "Accept Third Party Cookies" check boxes by clicking them if they're disabled. Most websites should work properly without the "Accept Third Party Cookies" check box checked. Click "OK." b> Google Chrome b> Click the wrench icon at the top right corner of the Google Chrome window and select "Options." Click the "Under the Hood" tab at the left side of the options page. Click the "Content Settings" button to the right of Privacy. Click the "Allow Local Data To Be Set (Recommended)" option and uncheck the "Ignore Exceptions and Block Third Party Cookies From Being Set" check box if you want to allow third party cookies. Most websites should work properly with third party cookies disabled. Close the options tab. Hope this helps.

How to configer email address in lotus notes


From what provider are you trying to configure email?If its gmail,

1. Create a Lotus Notes database file to store your POP emails: Lotus Notes does not create a file automatically as Thunderbird or other mail clients do but you have to manually point the mails to flow to a file that is already existing.
2. In the local Address Book, create two accounts for accepting incoming email and sending outgoing email on Gmail. Names are not important but the configuration on the two accounts is!
Account document for Incoming Gmail:
The Basics tab
a. Account name: Can be anything (I chose In Gmail)
b. Account server: pop.gmail.com
c. Login Name: Your gmail email address (complete with the @gmail.com)
d. Password: Your password
e. Protocol: POP
f. SSL: Enabled
g. Only from Location(s): Doesn't matter. Although I would recommend creating a location document specific for Gmail if you are also using Domino Server. I chose creating a location (Gmail).
Protocol Configuration tab: There is only one field here and it doesn't matter what you do with it.
Advanced Tab: This is the most important tab.
a. Port Number: 995
b. Accept SSL site certificates: Yes (Most of the articles on the web tell you to choose No here. But it does work. Trust me. I have tried it)
c. Accept expired SSL certificates: Yes. (Most of the articles on the web tell you to choose No here. But it does work. Trust me. I have tried it)
d. Send SSL certificates when asked (outbound connections only): No.
e. Verify account server name with remote server's certificate: Disabled
f. SSL protocol version: V3.0 with V2.0 handshake
3. Click on Save and Close to save the document and exit. Now you will need to create another account document to handle the outgoing email.
Account document for Outgoing Gmail:
The Basics Tab
a. Account Name: Can be anything. I chose Out Gmail
b. Account server name: smtp.gmail.com
c. Login Name: Your gmail email address (complete with the @gmail.com)
d. Password: Your password
e. Protocol: SMTP
f. SSL: Enabled
g. Only from Location(s): Doesn't matter. Although I would recommend creating a location document specific for Gmail if you are also using Domino Server. I chose creating a location (Gmail).
Advanced Tab: This is the most important tab.
a. Port Number: 587 or 465 (Both are SSL port and both work)
b. Accept SSL site certificates: Yes (Most of the articles on the web tell you to choose No here. But it does work. Trust me. I have tried it)
c. Accept expired SSL certificates: Yes. (Most of the articles on the web tell you to choose No here. But it does work. Trust me. I have tried it)
d. Send SSL certificates when asked (outbound connections only): No.
e. Verify account server name with remote server's certificate: Disabled
f. SSL protocol version: V3.0 with V2.0 handshake
4. Once these two documents are created, I would recommend creating a location document to ensure that you separate your gmail from your other Domino based account on the client. The steps to create are:
5. In the same local Address Book, choose New --> Location
Basics Tab:
a. Location Type: Local Area Network
b. Location Name: Can be anything (I chose Gmail)
c. Internet Mail Address: Your gmail email address
Leave the rest as it is.
Servers Tab:
a. Home/Mail server: pop.gmail.com
Leave the rest as it is.
Ports tab: No changes (ensure TCPIP is checked)
Mail Tab (Most important):
a. Mail file location: Local
b. Mail file: My Gmail.nsf (whatever you created in step 1 above).
Update: A couple of readers pointed out that I had missed an important step in the configuration how-to. So here it is. Step C has been added to include the missed step.
c. Internet domain for Notes addresses when connecting directly to the Internet: gmail.com
d. Send Outgoing mail: directly to Internet
Leave the rest of the fields as it is.
6. There is no need to change the rest of tabs. Click on Save and Close to create the document.
Change to the the new location and you will see Gmail getting downloaded in the mail file you created.

Password will not allow to sign in changed to new password gianed acess signed out can not sign in wont stay sign in


Many times the reason you cannot stay logged into your mail account is because of cookies. Gmail will try to set a cookie in your internet browser. If you are blocking cookies or otherwise not accepting cookies, this may contribute to the problem you are facing.

My computer is not accepting cookies.


Assuming you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer, you have to do this:
  1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Privacy tab, and then click Advanced.
  3. Click Override automatic cookie handling, and then specify how you want Internet Explorer to handle cookies from first-party Web sites and third-party Web sites (a Web site other than the one you are currently viewing).
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to always allow cookies to be saved on your computer, click Accept.
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to never allow cookies to be saved on your computer, click Block.
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to ask whether or not you want to allow a cookie to be saved on your computer, click Prompt.
  4. If you want Internet Explorer to always allow session cookies (cookies that will be deleted from your computer when you close Internet Explorer) to be saved on your computer, click Always allow session cookies.
 Notes
  • Some Web sites require cookies; therefore, if you select a setting that does not allow cookies to be saved on your computer, you might not be able to view certain Web sites.
  • When you change your privacy settings, the changes might not affect cookies that are already on your computer. If you want to ensure that all of the cookies on your computer meet your privacy settings, you should delete all of the existing cookies on your computer. When you return to Web sites that previously had saved cookies on your computer, the Web sites that meet your privacy settings will save cookies on your computer again. The Web sites that do not meet your privacy settings will not be allowed to save cookies on your computer, and might not function properly.
