A new Domino Directory template (pubnames.ntf) for Domino 9.0.1 is now available. This new template extends Holiday documents through years 2026 or 2027 and adds policy updates for Traveler and IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook (IMSMO).
The new pubnames.ntf for Domino 9.0.1 includes the following updates:
- Holiday documents that have been extended another 10 years through 2026 or 2027 depending on the holiday.
- Policy update for cloud Traveler servers that allows admins to remove the device password requirement for Traveler devices. Hybrid customers will be able to override the default that says you must have a device password.
- Policy update for IMSMO cloud and on-premises servers that allows more granular control of auto-processing notices. Now you can choose whether to skip processing of meeting notices that have pending reschedules. In the cloud, this new setting is enforced/enabled regardless of the policy setting selected on-premises.
This new template is at this moment only available in English. Full localization is being worked for Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8.
The Holiday documents in this pubnames.ntf will not be applicable to cloud Hybrid environments until IBM delivers an updated mail template that provides a new option to import Holidays from any server. That updated mail template is currently planned for Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8.
The updated holidays include the original start dates but extend into either year 2026 or year 2027 depending on the holiday. The holidays will not be duplicated but instead extended; therefore, users will see the past and future holiday dates.
