Lotus Note - Mail folder modification does not synchronize to server

Under normal expectation, the changes made in your local mail folder (ie, mark as read, move mail to folder, add new folder, etc..) should be synchronized to the server so that additional mail clients (such as another Lotus Note mail client in a remote desktop) should pick up such modification.

If the above is not happening (ie, your remote desktop Inbox filled with unread message while you are very sure that you have read your email from a local machine), you may have a "Send Document To Server" replication setting turned off.

To fix this, do the following

1. Open Local Lotus Note client (the one you mostly use to make modification), access to your Inbox
2. Click on File -> Application -> Properties
3. Click on Replication Settings
4. Make sure "Send document to server" check box is checked
