How do I Select Multiple Emails in Lotus Notes 8.5

In Previous versions of Lotus Notes you were able to select multiple emails to delete or move them by placing a check mark beside the email messages.

With Lotus Notes 8.5 the default setting has now changed to the Microsoft Windows Explorer convention, which is to highlight and use the Control Key to select multiple documents or use the Shift Key to select multiple email messages in consecutive order.

Some people will enjoy the windows explorer type of selecting multiple documents but for me and those who have become accustom to the good old fashion check mark way, if you want to change it back you need to do the following:

– Go to File – Preferences – “Basic Notes Client Configuration” Section

– In “Additional Options” field scroll all the way to the bottom

– Check off “Show Check Marks in Margin for Selected Documents

-Then Click OK

    Thanks for that tip! Just installing Domino 8.5.2 and will be having most users using the web client. Do you know how to set this up so all users can use the check mark from the server? Thanks for your help!

    You can also go to “File”, click “Preferences”. Under “additional options” find (usually way at the bottom) “Show check marks in margine for selected documents” and check it. Voila.
