Lotus Notes Errors

Over the course of my career I have had to use Lotus Notes for email, calendaring, and early on for application development! I thought it would be fun to post pictures of some of the wonderful error messages I have seen.  (In July of 2013, I finally have been able to use MS Outlook and felt the need to update this post. After all, as one employee put it: “People in the real world, use Outlook.”)

In no particular order:

Anonymous hacking Notes 


Ye olde ctrl+c, ctrl_v error


Notes informing you it is in the process of crashing


Every coders favourite error, ‘Entry not found in index’


When I was attempting to re-schedule a meeting


Another coder classic


Trying to quit Notes

If you lose network connectivity

Notes and losing connection


Notes trying to open a window:



I am sure there are many more out there so if you have any good ones, feel free to post in the comments.

    Ah, congrats on making the leap to Outlook!
    I remember many of these error messages, especially the last one.
    So weird, and with no actionable next step.
