Update 3/20/2014 - Oh, yes, should have mentioned this.....you also need to be on mail9.ntf for your mail files.

IE11 has been out for a while and with the likes of Google saying IE9 will no longer supported on their stuff, more and more organizations and people are moving to it. The thing with iNotes is that fixes may or may not be in a Domino Fix Pack. They may be in a completely separate download. You have to select "iNotes" as the product in Fix Central.

To support IE11 with iNotes you need to be at Domino 9.0.1 with iNotes fix 9.0.1 IF1 or higher (IF2 is now available so go with that).

Anyway, get the fix from Fix Central, here's a Windows Domino server link
:
http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/quickorder?parent=ibm%7ELotus&product=ibm/Lotus/Lotus+iNotes&release=9.0.1.0&platform=Windows&function=all&source=fc

There are three files on the ZIP file:
  • Run the executable, as you would a fix pack
  • Copy the CAB file to the /data/domino/html folder, replacing the one that is there (take a backup if you are)
  • Copy the NSF to the /data/iNotes folder, replacing the one that is there (take a backup if you are)
  • Your mail files need to be on mail9.ntf
  • Restart the server, bask in the glow that is IE11 (alright, that was a joke).....

There is also an IBM TechNote that lists iNotes support by browser and Domino version, http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21426680 although it only goes up to Firefox 26.....surely we're up to 103 by now no? ;)

One would hope that Domino 9.0 and 8.5.3 would get IE11 support too......As the great Beyonce would have said "if you want, you should have put a PMR on it"

I've been trying to halt the IE bandwagon at IE10. There is actually an option in IE10 to turn off automatic updates, and there is true install blocker you can download from Microsoft. But IE11 keeps creeping in if you have any Windows machines you're not managing carefully. At least now we have a solution for iNotes -- not so lucky with some of our other web services.
