This article concentrates on more common configuration settings you may come across in your IBM Notes 9 client application as well as some new options that have been introduced.
Firstly when you install IBM Notes 9 Social Edition it will set a series of Defaults that you may want to change:
Notes 9.0 Social Edition has a brand new look and feel—the IBM Social Theme. This theme provides a cleaner, more modern look to the client interface, and is being adopted across the IBM product line for UI consistency.
To select a different theme, choose File > Preferences > Windows and Themes
By default, your most recent emails will appear at the top of the Inbox. You can change that in your Preferences.
Click File > Preferences > Mail
Scroll to the Bottom, Tick Automatically sort date column, and select "Most recent on bottom"
You will need to re-open the mail file, if in doubt close and re-open IBM Notes.
Newly introduced in IBM Notes 9 are a series of shortcut buttons are available to the right of the Open button, which you can use to open Mail, Calendar, Contacts and other views from anywhere in IBM Notes.
To change which shortcut buttons display by default, select View > Show Shortcut Buttons, and make your selections.
Another Newly introduced feature in IBM Notes 9 is that Message tabs can now be automatically closed after you have replied to, or forwarded, a message.
To change this default behaviour, select File > Preferences > Mail
