New pubnames.ntf extends Holiday documents through 2026/2027 & adds policy updates for Traveler and IMSMO

Recommended Resources


A new Domino Directory template (pubnames.ntf) is now available that extends Holiday documents through years 2026 or 2027 and adds policy updates for both Traveler and IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook (IMSMO).


A new pubnames.ntf for Domino 9.0.1 is available that includes the following updates:

  • Holiday documents that have been extended another 10 years through 2026 or 2027 depending on the holiday.
  • Policy update for cloud Traveler servers that allows admins to remove the device password requirement for Traveler devices. Hybrid customers will be able to override the default that says you must have a device password.
  • Policy update for IMSMO cloud and on-premises servers that allows more granular control of auto-processing notices. Now you can choose whether to skip processing of meeting notices that have pending reschedules. In the cloud, this new setting is enforced/enabled regardless of the policy setting selected on-premises.

      Importing the updated Holiday documents
      Perform the following two actions to import the updated Holiday documents into your server's Domino Directory (names.nsf)
        1. Navigate to the Configuration\Miscellaneous\Holidays view
        2. From the Actions menu, run the Import Holidays from Template agent
      After the above actions, then your users can update their calendars by selecting More -> Import Holidays from any Calendar view.

      Is this new template available in non-English versions?
      Yes, a multi-lingual pubnames.ntf was released with 9.0.1FP8.
        Should admins delete the prior holidays before importing these new ones?
        No. The updated holidays include the original start dates but extend into either year 2026 or year 2027 depending on the holiday. The holidays will not be duplicated but instead extended; therefore, users will see the past and future holiday dates.
