[Q] Lotus Notes through Exchange on Android
I've got a Nexus 5 with Android 4.4.
My work is running Lotus Notes for email. The desktop software is bad enough, but the Lotus Traveler app on android is pure garbage.
Apparently the traveler server works with standard ActiveSync. I know this because people at my office have their email set up on their iPhones/iPads through ActiveSync. I can actually add my Lotus account onto my phone through the default email app using the Exchange setup. Everything seemed to work as it should at first. The app asked me to set a pin for my phone, which I did. The problem is that after a couple minutes I get a prompt saying my device pin has expired and all my Lotus account data will be deleted unless I reset my pin. This happens every few minutes even if I keep resetting my pin.
Anyone know of anyway around this? At the moment I'm forwarding all my work emails to my gmail account so that I can read them on my phone, but I can only reply from my gmail address, so it isn't ideal.
