As of Notes 9.0.1 the Notebook (journal) still doesn't synchronize automatically into the mail file the way contacts do.  The way to synchronize the Notebook is to open the mail file, then pull down Actions - IBM iNotes - Synchronize Notebook.  EVERY TIME YOU WANT THEM SYNCHRONIZED.  This should be just another setting in preferences like contacts are.
Users get particularly frustrated because they don't know why it doesn't happen like everything else (contacts, todos, calendars, mail). To them, it is just another component.

Notebook enhancements are forthcoming, as cited in a session at IC14; no date given, but internal betas for them were cited. So, perhaps, this is included. Would be a nice enhancement.

Preferences and policy settings documents too.

We have the Contacts Synchronization utility for Lotus Notes / Domino available freely from our website which performs the synchronization of contacts between Notes Mail and Personal Address Book. If there's enough interest we could look at extending the functionality to include synchronization with the Notebook as well.
