IBM Notes (formerly IBM Lotus Notes) continues to be a leading email client for businesses to communicate and collaborate with colleagues, customers and partners. However, IBM Notes email was not designed to send large attachments, provide enterprise-grade security, and track all attachment activities. In this post, we will discuss the key file transfer challenges in IBM Notes and provide an enterprise-grade solution to these problems.

Large File Transfer: A Challenge for IBM Notes/Domino

With the sizes of files increasing every year due to innovations in technology (e.g. HD video and CAD design solutions), it is now a challenge for many companies to send these files from email clients like IBM Notes using standard file attachments. When a user tries to send a file that is over the set limit in IBM Notes, they are blocked by the Notes client. Additionally, using the IBM Domino server to handle large file attachments leads to high storage costs and poor performance (especially in peak hours). Not being able to send large files from IBM Notes leads many users to adopt their own solutions like FTP or free, consumer file sharing apps. This causes a poor user experience for the company’s end users and a high risk of a data leaks when users are using solutions that are out of IT’s visibility and control.
