More Lotus Notes Suckage
A colleague emailed me today regarding some information I had sent him previously. Apparently, Lotus deleted all of his data which wasn’t archived. Why? Who knows.
Anyways, I suggested that he simply ignore the company email system and use a GMail account. To this, he replied:
If I could I would NEVER use Lotus email. WHAT A nightmare!!!
Emphasis his. So please, if you’re an IT administrator or a CTO, don’t punish your minions by subjecting them to Lotus Notes (unless, you know, you’re into that sort of thing).
The user interface is by far the worst there is for professionally written software. This doesn’t mean every other email application is good, just that Lotus Notes is terrible. Having used about a dozen email applications over the years, I can authoritatively state that Lotus Notes is the worst.
