As soon as I sync the calendar via Traveller (1 month past/3month future) the calendar becomes very slow. Also the phone is reacting much slower. I have deleted the calendar and synced via PCsuite again and everything is ok and quick again. Very strange.
1 Syncing with LN traveler (remote) makes my E7 very slow ( useless)
2 Then=> Sync with Nokia Suite on my home PC (so all business entries are on my pc at home).
3 Delete all entries on my E7 (its empty after that)
4 Reload all entries from Nokia Suite (they are back on my E7) Now running smooth!
5 With the same entries (that were slow) but coming from nokia suite instead of LN traveler my E7 is running fine. (Still wonder why since they are the same entrrie that originally came from LN traveler and were slow).
6 Since then, my E7 updates new entries from LN traveler (remote every hour) (removing 2 weeks in the past and 6 months in future)
7 Still working fine so far.
8 Now about 90% of all entries came from my home pc as described above and about 10% came from LN traveler (By syncing). In about the next 6 months all entries originate from LN traveler (remote sync)
I wonder how long its will run smooth.
CONCLUSION : Data directly coming from LN traveler makes the E7 very slow or almost useless., The SAME (!!!!) data from Nokia Suite causes no problem at all.
So there must be a difference between calendar data coming from LN traveler and the same calendar data coming from Nokia Suite.
NOTHING HEARD FROM NOKIA SO FAR EXCEPT A RECEIPT OF MY REPORTED PROBLEM
I have the same issues as you describe, my phone even crashes because of the sync problems with Traveller.
Strange thing is that 2 of my colleagues also have an E7 without the problems that I have. The only difference I found so far is that they have Dutch language for the phone were mine is English. I can not imagine that this is the problem.
Hi i have tested on nokia E7 and lotus traveler 188.8.131.52 and if client is configured with domain name es. mail.myserver.com have a problem with mail and calendar, but if configure client with IP Addresso es. xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx calendar and mail sync nomally.
pex81 Thanks for the hint it seems indeed that here is the issue.
I found out that a colleage of mine syncs via wifi instead of GPRS which I use. I have now also synced (first time) via Wifi and I noticed that the calendar is now named "Lotus" where it before was named "Personal". Syncing went smooth and without problems of slowing down the calendar/phone. After that I have used my GPRS connection again and it seems just a little slower but much much better then before. The calendar is stilled called "Lotus".
Very strange but it seems to be working now. Thanks again big time.
My Calendar is named "Personal" not "Lotus".
I have tested another problem, on setting Traveler configuration "Automatic Syncronization" if set "Always Connect" i recived error after tot. min, if setting "sync each 15 min" work, but this is not push email.
I personally am disappointed.

This is really ridicolous. I thought I had everything going well. Not sure what happened, but the problems of the slowing down of my phone are back! It is not possible to do syncing via traveller. Syncing via PCsuite works fine.
The "Agendaserver for calendar” is available for Nokia Belle devices. Please update via SW Update, if you have Lotus Notes Traveler version 184.108.40.206. That should help on the calendar performance issues.

The agendaserver update also does not solve the problem for me unfortunatly (Traveller 220.127.116.11).
The only working solution after a lot op updates testings, back to factory settings and anything you can imagine, this works for me.
The calendar becomes slow/useless after an initial sync with LN traveler, or after "replace" data from LN to calendar.
Remove all calendar entries on your E7. After its emptied, it works fine, although there are no items at all since when you removed them.
Do an initial sync with LN traveler ( I did it by 3G, wireless) Take a small range for example 1 month in the past till 3 months in the future. (I'll explain why later)
Your calender is filled now and very slow, or even seless.
Sync your slow calendar with an empty calendar on your (home) pc, (With Nokia Suite) for example with outlook calendar. Now your business calendar entries are both on your phone as on your home pc.
Again remove all calendar items on your E7.
Sync again your E7 with the calendar on your home pc using Nokia Suite.
Now your E7 has the calendardata back. But the difference is, now your calendar is running smooth and quickly.
By the first LN Traveler sync with your office your data are doubled in your office calendar. You'll find every entrie twice on Lotus Notes but only once on your E7.
Don't remove the doubles on LN because with the next sync you'll lose most of the entries on your E7. This is why you have to sync only 1 month in the past till e.g. 3 or 6 month in the future. This problem will disappear with the time. With every sync new data are put on your e7 and ald data wille be removed, and only once and not double again.
I did these steps about a month ago so now most of the old entries are replaced by every sync that's automatically done every 1 hour. Still my E7 is running fine.
Conclusion: Problems occur after the initianal sync, and NOT after the folowing syncs with traveler. The initial sync into an empty E7 calendat must be done from your home pc as described above. The Traveler update from nokia did not help to solve the issue.
I hope this will help you. Let us know!

@Raymond. Unfortunatly that did not work for me.
I try to explain what I did:
Removed all calendar entries: Personal calendar -> "Delete all events" and PC suite calender "Delete Calendar". Now there is one calendar "Personal" which is empty. Phone is ok.
Sync via Traveller: (wifi) 1 month past and 3 month future -> Result: Ok, no slowing down of my calendar/phone. There is 1 calendar on my phone called "Personal".
BUT I noticed that not all my calendar entries in the 4 month time span (Lotus Notes Calender on PC) were synced to my Nokia. Strange, I have not noticed this before.
I think the appointments that did/will not sync via traveller came originally from my Phone via the PCsuite synchronization to the PC.
When I sync via PCsuite afterwards these entries are synced to my phone to the calendar named PC Suite. So at that moment there are 2 calendars. 1 That was synced via Traveller (goes to the default "Personal) and the other is synced via PCSuite (called: PC suite).
At that moment things start to slow down to the point the phone is useless.
It seems that appointments from the PC suite syncing can not "live beside" appointments that are synced via Traveller after the Belle upgrade.
Raymond. You mention that you have/had double appointments. Is it correct to assume that 1 appointment is in the Personal calendar and the other in the PCsuite?
@ lubbers. Amon all the calendar test n my E7 I have never seen a calendar other than 'personal'
So I've always had only 1 calendar and thats called 'personal' . I don't think there's an issue with double calendars. My workaround stll works, but I noticed that all callendar items that were made by my secretary with other LN users were cancelled in their office LN calendars. So, at many meetings nobody but me showed up
