External Internet emails required @domain added


With our current notes system if we are sending an external email i.e. jbloggs@hotmail.com we have to type jbloggs@hotmail.com@TNPN

I'm seeking someway where the @TNPN is automatically added by the Server if required.

The reason I need this is that some users have a need to use Outlook 2000 and when they type jbloggs@hotmail.com@TNPN the Outlook 2000 is unable to send it through the Lotus Notes Service.

Thank you


P.S.  Plz let me know if 50 points is too cheap for this question.  I'm assuming its easy but I could be mistaken.

Once configured properly, it will work for all servers in the domain which share the same PAB.

You just need one Foreign SMTP Domain document in a domain.

If Server A and Server B are in the same domain, one Foreign SMTP Domain Document will do the job, you can create from either server and replicate the changes.

If they are in different domain, and I should think that the Foreign SMTP Domain document is created in Server A's PAB already. In that case, you will need to create another Foreign SMTP Domain document in Server B's PAB and in the Should Be Routed To Domain Name you will then specify the Server A's domain name (which I think is TNPN). You should have a connection document to TNPN domain in your PAB already.

Let me know whether it works!

Are you using POP3 or IMAP to talk to the Domino Server from Outlook 2000?

Currently their is no POP3 or IMAP running on our Lotus Notes 4.6.3 Server.  Outlook 2000 is attempting to use MAPI to communicate with the NOtes server.  Currently a very unstable arrangement.

I'm hoping to install a the SMTP component of Notes but I'm unsure if this will help that problem greatly.

Hi rhomulos

YOu must install SMTP in notes. This would avoid the problem of manually inputting TNPN, which is taken care by the server, if SMTP service is running.

Good Luck
How about Foreign SMTP Domain document, I thought that is the one that makes the mail with internet addresses to be routed to SMTP server.

Just to clarify that.

I have SMTP running on Server A,  My mail is on Server B.

Do I put a SMTP Domain Document on Server B or do I need to install the SMTP service on Server B
