    My ISP email host has announced that Microsoft will turn off POP3/IMAP support effective July 28, 2022. I think Microsoft announced this change about 2 years ago and have delayed the deadline a couple of times. Once Microsoft turns off their access except via OAuth2 protocol, those of us using Notes will be highly motivated to switch to Outlook (Heaven forbid!) or Thunderbird if we wish to access our Outlook or Exchange email accounts.

    I have been a long time user of Notes and have used it for many years with Gmail as a great editing, formatting and archival tool. I strongly support HCL working with Google to supply us with a solution. My HCL/IBM Notes is a great client and l many folders I depend on for my work. Thanks for your help and support.

    I love Notes because it can do so much more (separate archive and edit e-mails) than any other program out there. I will not be able to function as efficiently if my connection with Gmail is broken. The effective date of deactivation from Google is May 30, 2022. I am an individual user of Notes and I am not on a Domino server. Please do not abandon your customers who use Notes this way. Please. Thank you.

    Is there any news on whether this will be implemented? I'm trying the v12 beta, and on first look the issue is still there.

    This means I can no longer use my Notes client. Please provide a work round as soon as possible.

    Would a server-based solution be possible? The Squirrel for Domino server add-in allows the forwarding of POP3 and IMAP messges to the users mailbox. See https://squirrel.abdata.ch

    Currently, the authentication is done with passwords, but OAUTH2 support is planned for March 2021.

    This also needs supporting for Federated Calendars. You will loose the ability to insert a Google Calendar into your Notes Calendar on this date too.

    I hope HCL's Domino/Notes developers will find a solution to this, so that many of us can keep using Notes as an email client. Using a browser to read gmail (as one solution suggested) means that we won't be able to download email and archive it (as I've been doing for many years). I realize that many Notes users are connecting to Domino servers that have been setup as the mx record servers for particular domains (this setup was an important part of my job with PC World and MacWorld Magazines for 14 years). But there is also a large group of Notes users who use POP3 or IMAP to download their email from gmail or other modern email hosts. Not being able to connect to gmail's servers (or other big name email hosts) because of a security problem puts the Notes client in a legacy position in the universe of email clients. There's already a perception out there that Notes is old fashioned. Why support that perception?
