When Lotus Notes Crashes – ZapNotes

I have the misfortune of having to use Lotus Notes at work. A developer at IBM realized that it’s buggy software, and provided a wonderful application called ZapNotes. For those times when Notes crashes so hard that you can’t even restart it, ZapNotes will go through the system processes and kill any lingering Notes threads. I especially like the program tagline:

ZapNotes 3.4 – Now people from around the world look forward to their Notes client crashing! 🙂

  1. I’ve been an Outlook user for as long as I remember so the move to Lotus Notes wasn’t very pleasant. But after using it for almost an year know, I’ve realized that Lotus Notes is much more robust and extensible than Outlook can ever imagine to be. Which other app allows you to prevent the email from being forwarded, replied to, or even its message copy pasted to a text editor.

    I really don’t know what kind of problems you are fgacing, but the client takes too long to start, you can load Nlnotes.exe (inprogram directory) or create a shortcut to it. This way you don’t have to wait for the splash screen. You can run multiple versions of Notes simultaneously, and avoid loading the debugger.
