Domino 8.5???

I have just upgraded to Domino 8.5 after a mail server crash. I a  wondering when Domino 8.5 will be supported?

  • Hi TJ,

    The release notes show that the current version of PureMessage for Domino, 4.1, support Domino 8.5.  You can find the release notes on the Sophos website located here:


  • Does this also include 8.5.1?

  • Hello .myke,

    sorry for delay.

    In Domino 8.5.1 lots of changes have been implemented and PureMessage for Domino (PMD) v4.1 officially does not support Domino 8.5.1
    (please cf.

    A customer did install PMD 4.1 on Windows 2003 Server 32bit with Domino 8.5.1.
    Installation ran through but in domino server console most of the tasks not being listed and instead of the tasks name only "Database Server" was shown.

    Customer solved issue with the following workaround:
    -install PMD 4.1 on domino 8.5.1
    -remove tm_grab and td_grab from notes.ini, section ServerTasks=...
    -restart domino server
    -in domino directory on domino server (= names.nsf) in
    configuration > servers > programs
    added tm_grab and tm_grab as well to start "At server startup only"
    -restart domino server
    -everything's working fine

    You'll have to keep on mind that the above is UNSUPPORTED.
    I regret to give no other answer.
    Sophos Technical Support staying in contact with product management for Domino 8.5.1 to be supported by PMD.
    No further information on that available at this time.

    Kind regards,

  • interesting! I'll probably be using it shortly
