Quickr 8.5.x: Replies sent to place excluded from room index

There is a nice new feature delivered with IBM Quickr 8.5.x for Domino called

Do not show incoming emails in a place or room index if it was a reply“.

Unfortunately, there is no option which lets you choose whether to enable or disable this feature. Since version 8.5 this feature is enabled. Period.

In other words, sending an email to a certain place works properly as long as it was sent as a new or forwarded email. If it was a reply, it will never appear in the place or room index, but you will see it in “What’s new” for a short time.

Domino 9.0.1: Bug with documents not appearing in categorized views

After upgrading to Domino 9.0.1 you may run into weird view problems where documents, especially response documents may not appear in categorised views.

Only “shift + F9” will solve the problem temporarily, but as soon as documents are added to the database, the problem might occur again.

The issue has already been reported in LO78849 “DOCUMENTS DISAPPEAR FROM VIEWS AFTER UPGRADING TO DOMINO 9.0.1” (authentication is required to access the technote).

According to IBM Support, this issue has the highest severity and they are working on a fix. It’s supposed to be addressed in FP2 for Domino 9.0.1.

As a temporary workaround, IBM Support recommends to set MAX_PERMUTE_RECURSE=100000 in the server’s notes.ini.

This parameter which is new in Domino 9.0.1 and 8.5.3 FP6 has been introduced due to SPR #KHAN87ZUTS and seems to be part of the root cause because

…the number of hierarchical responses that can be added to a given collection…

is now somehow limited. I wonder if the same problem also occurs in Domino 8.5.3 FP6?
