No way IRS relies on local desktops to store email

Eugen Tarnow  June 16 2014 09:16:51 PM
The claim in the media is that Lois Lerner lost her emails because of a crashing hard disk.  

This does not seem believable.  

The IRS surely stores all mail on servers, not on local desktops.  And there must be journaling systems that capture all incoming and outgoing emails in a separate place.

Does anybody know whether the IRS still uses Lotus Notes or went over to Outlook?

    Compassionate Release system takes 5 month to develop - they should use Lotus Notes!

    Eugen Tarnow  May 23 2013 12:17:51 PM
    U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General came out with a report in April that shows that "compassionate release", a program that allows prisoners to go
     free within 18 months of their estimated death, is not working.  They made a suggestion to the Federal Bureau of Prisons to create an electronic workflow system to make
    the process faster.  The Prison bureau responded with a proposed date for a new system of September.  That is five months!

    Would such a system take any more than a couple weeks to develop using Lotus Notes?

    ReduceMail Pro team is very excited give our full attention to all companies who use Notes mail.

      Any thoughts on the new Lotus Notes team at IBM?

      I understand that Ed Brill is no longer with the team.  Does anybody know what other changes there were and whether those changes might be positive for Notes?

          IBM owns the patent application for the perfect Reply-To-All button

          Eugen Tarnow  December 3 2012 02:59:54 PM
          Every so often I have an idea and I rush to the US Patent & Trade Marks database to see if somebody already came up with it.  

          This time I was thinking of the perfect Reply-to-All button.  To make for more responsible communications the Reply-All-Button should present the end user with a list of potential recipients and each recipient should have to be checked off in order for the reply to be sent.

          It turns out that Kyle Patrick of IBM, Austin, already came up with it.  The corresponding published patent application can be found here.

          What is curious is why the button has been sitting on the shelf for 8 years!  Kyle Patrick appears to no longer be working at IBM, perhaps that is the reason?

          ReduceMail Pro team is very excited give our full attention to all companies who use Notes mail.

          Antivirus software a waste of money for businesses, report suggests

          Eugen Tarnow  November 27 2012 09:57:27 PM
          You can read comments about this report here although I can't find the original report.  

          Since so much money is spent on antivirus software, perhaps some of it would be better spent on getting Lotus Domino mail systems which are apparently more secure than Microsoft Exchange systems?

          HP says Autonomy committed fraud

          Eugen Tarnow  November 20 2012 10:07:16 AM
          For some reason the mail archiving & e-discovery space seems to attract frauds.  

          According to an article in the Wall Street Journal HP, who bought Autonomy, "has informed the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as the U.K.'s Serious Fraud Office" about representations Autonomy made before HP bought the company.

          Another company in this space had an executive charged with fraud, a third one kept selling stock yet always lost money.  A fourth one was also charged by the SEC.

          Then there is what seems like a patent troll going after multiple companies in this space, just to make things worse.

          What is so special about mail archiving & e-discovery?
