Verse is the new way to work with email communications. It was first made available in IBM Connections Cloud and is now available for your Domino mail server on premises. To save you some time searching at Passport Advantage for the download, the part number is CNGD8ML
More later when I have a chance to install it.
There are many online resources for connecting with administrators, developers, and IBMers to get your questions answered, find resources for hire, discover integrated products to extend your software environment, and learn about what new software or the next version will bring. IBM customers tend to be very collaborative, so you can find them in just about any social media forum. Being connected to them is invaluable. Knowing where to find them is the hard part. Here is a list of top resources. There are many more out there. Start with the aggregators. Please post your own contributions in the comments and I will add them to this list.

IBM just announced the list of people who have earned the title of 2017 IBM Champion for ICS (IBM Collaborative Solutions).
What is an IBM Champion? To quote the champion of the Champions, Amanda Bauman:
These individuals are non-IBMers who evangelize IBM solutions, share their knowledge and help grow the community of professionals who are focused on social business and IBM’s Social Solutions. IBM Champions spend a considerable amount of their own time, energy and resources on community efforts — organizing and leading user group events, answering questions in forums, contributing wiki articles and applications, publishing podcasts, sharing instructional videos and more!
Congratulations to all of you IBM Champions on your achievements. I am honored and humbled to be included again this year in such great company. I believe your achievements as IBM Champions is just an indicator of the kind of leaders and top performing individuals you are. You all set a very high standard to live by! I also want to make a shout out to my friend and neighbor to the North (Vancouver, BC), Graham Acres of Brytek Systems who as also been recognized as an IBM Champion for ICS 2017.
Here is the complete list:
*Frank Van der Linden
