Can one notes server accept two domains ?

I had registered two domains for my email system, and one notes server 4.6.
Anyways for my single notes server to accomodate my two email domains, that's the server can process 2 email domains.
Or I need to have 2 notes server ?

We are in the same boat, I have multiple domains running off a single Domino server.

What you have to do is make sure that  an MX record (mail domain) have been created with your ISP for both your domains, and pointing to the same IP address, i.e.: = =

To test if both mail domain are properly registered, do the following from your Domino server:


If you can see both pointing to your Domino server IP address you are on the right track and can use multiple mail domain on a single Domino server.

Next, within your Domino server the default mail domain would usually be the first domain registered, i.e., so once you create an e-mail account i.e. "user1" it would default to

Once you want to create mail user for other domain than the default, all you have to do is create the mail user as normal and once created, edit the PERSON document/record and change the "Short name and/or Internet Address:" field from i.e. "user2" to "".

I hope this helps, good luck and happy computing.....



you can set up virtual servers on a single Domino Web server. Then that single Domino Web server can host several Web sites. Using virtual servers allows you to maintain separate sites.  Before configuring the virtual server settings in Domino, you must set up the network connections for each virtual server. To establish a new site on a multi-site server, create a Virtual Server document in the Domino Directory. The settings that you specify in the Virtual Server document override the corresponding settings in the Server document. To display the Virtual Server document, open the Web - Web Server Configurations view from the Domino Administrator. Domino displays the Virtual Server document as a response to the Server document.
1.      Set up each virtual server with its own separate, permanent numeric IP address or map multiple names to the same IP address. See your operating system documentation for more information.
  2.      From the Domino Administrator, click the Configuration tab, choose Server, and then open the Server document for the server on which you want to create a virtual server.
  3.      Click Web and choose Create Virtual Server.
  4.      Choose Virtual Server. tell http restart.

Are  and the same person and therefore mail sent to either address should be routed to the same account?  If so, go to the Global Domain document in your address book and under internet domain suffix list both domains.
If  and are not the same person then you will need two notes domains and therefore two servers and two address books

I had tried, but it fails. Only the first domain can
accept mail.
Is it FQDN means of your domain suffix ?
What is FQDN?

FQDN means Fully Qualified Domain Names
..I found it in global domain document.
But cannot find domain suffix
