Lotus Notes has an incompatibility issue with Outlook.  The issue is with recurring meetings because the options for recurring meetings in Lotus Notes are not al the same with those in Outlook.  In previous versions of Lotus Notes we could modify the NOTES.INI file by adding:

$CSCompatibilityMode=2

DisallowRelatedICalendarMime=2

These settings would ensure that the recurring meeting options shown to the user when scheduling a meeting would only be those that are compatible with Outlook.  With these options set in the NOTES.INI file, the Lotus Notes user would be able to select the "Some invitees use other email programs" checkbox and be limited to choose only from the common recurring options of Notes and Outlook.

With Lotus Notes 9, those settings no longer seem to work in the NOTES.INI file.  The "Some invitees use other email programs" checkbox no longer shows.  If those 2 settings no longer work for Lotus Notes 9, then what is the new solution?

Thank you.
