I just installed Domino R5 Server for Internet Mail server and configured SMTP service from the server setup program.

Everything works fine but the reply address when the users send mails from web client. Instead of "benny.liaw@abc.com" as defined in the person document, the reply address is Benny_Liaw/ISI%com%com

I believe there may be some settings that I missed out, but not sure which one, since R5 does not require some documents of R4 MTA that I know.

Tried creating a Global Domain documents, and restarted SMTP and Router tasks with no luck.

Please help ....

Hello bennyliaw,

U have to make a small adjustment in the person document of the user. Just go the person document, then to the mail tab for the user and write the internet address for the user in the "internet address". So u have to put benny.liaw@abc.com in the "internet address" option.

Try it out, hope this will serve your purpose.

Sorry, I did not make it clear.
I had already "benny.liaw@abc.com" in the "internet address" of the person document. That's what I meant by defined in the person document.

The setting works for incoming mail, but somehow for outgoing mail, Domino just does not use it, instead it converts the reply address to Benny_Liaw/ISI%com%com

Go to the configuration document for the Mail server (or create one) and under the MIME-Conversion Options-Outbound tab, enable the field 'Lookup Internet address for all Notes addresses when Internet address is not defined in document'.

This setting affects R4 and webmail clients whereas R5 clients should already have their Internet address in new memos they create (the address is pulled down from their person document into their location document).

After restarting the server now the reply address has the correct domain name but still it does not use the one configured in the person document.

The reply address is Benny_Liaw/OU/O@abc.com

But I still want it to be benny.liaw@abc.com.

I have tried your suggestion with no effect.

I've had the exact same problem, and solved it by enabling the "Use as default Global Domain" in the Basics in the domain-sheet.
