Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

A customer last night asked about CoexLinks and iFidelity and wanted to know how they differ.  There is between the products, in the sense that iFidelity can do everything CoexLinks can do, but it can also do much more and has a much wider audience.  In a very simplistic sense, CoexLinks is for people who choose NOT to use Notes mail, while iFidelity is for people who DO choose to use Notes mail, as well as for those who do not.

But here is a very simple visual difference.  Assume that you want to send a table of doclinks, using the standard Edit - Copy As - Table, creating an email and sending it.  Functionally, both CoexLinks and iFidelity will make the links work properly outside of Notes (and have all the extra features such as NDL attachments, customized web URL links, etc.), but iFidelity handles the appearance as well as the functionality:


In Notes 8.0.1, the original email:


Original message in Lotus Notes client


In Outlook, the email as received after being handle by CoexLinks


Email converted by CoexLinks and shown in Outlook


In Gmail, the email as received after being handle by CoexLinks


Email converted by CoexLinks and shown in Gmail


In Outlook, the email as received after being handle by iFidelity


Email converted by iFidelity and shown in Outlook


In GMail, the email as received after being handle by iFidelity


Email converted by iFidelity and shown in Gmail
