General questions

I'm a freshman in using Lotus Notes and have a few questions I hope someone can answer:

1. Is it possible to "get rid of" / detach a user.id which has been saved in the Public Adress Book? I am able to save it in a file, but not remove it.
2. Is it possible to rename the Notes-domain from let's say "Notes Domain 1" to "Notes Domain 2" Is it recommendable to call the Notes-domain the same name same as our NT-domain? What is recommended here?
3. We have a little e-mail server which logs all activity in a file (connection time, sent/received messages and so on). If we want to use Notes for Internet-mail (SMTP) instead, is it possible to get the same functionality?

1. Place the cursor on the attachment i.e. the id file and hit the Delete key
2. The architecture should be decided before installation of notes servers. I'm not sure if you can change the domain name now.
3. Yes, the Notes log and server files would provide the all the details

1. You have to put the document in edit mode or else you will mark the document for deletion.  Also, are you referring to doing this one at a time, or do you want this to happen to multiple documents according to set criteria?  If so you need to create an agent to do so.

2. You can change the name of the domain but it requires a lot of work.  Remember, your Notes domain is defined by your Public Address Book.  Usually the domain is named after the Organization i.e ACME.  Your PAB is called ACME's  Address Book and the Org certifier would be /ACME.  You can just change the name of the PAB to ABC and that is now your domain name.  However if you wanted to change your Org cert, that is another matter.  You would have to touch every Notes ID in the organization.

3.  The Notes log log's pretty much everything that goes on on the server.  However, you should probably enable Statistics and Events gathering.  Statistics give you very detailed info on all Notes activities and many OS and hardware activites.  Events uses that info to send up flags when some statistic reaches a defined threshold.  These setting are enabled by adding Report and Event to the ServerTasks line of the Notes.ini on each server.  You can then replicate the 2 databases to each server so that the info gained is stored in one place and you can make at a glance comparisons.

Well, PsychoEffer has the best answer, so the points should go to him/her. But none of you has answered question 2 about the NT-domain...
And another question: Is it recommended to use spaces in the domain name (e.g. 'Notes domain')

Having experience with Notes SMTP it probably won't give you the functionality of your standard E-Mail program. It is extremely finicky to set up also. I might suggest waiting to see if version 5 is better in this regard. As to point 2 I would recommend calling them different names as it helps if and when problems arise later.

1. Put document in edit mode and then single click on attachment and hit delete.  You will need an agent to do this for all files in db...make sure that you specify a file name ending in .id since the default just says 'userid'.

2. No, use a name different from your NT server since you can then refer to them both individually, especially using IP domain names.  If you give them the same name then one will have to be left out of the DNS.

3. Use Notes stats and enable advanced stats gathering for starters, although I might be tempted to run a monitor accross your gateway server as well, outside of Notes.
