Spoke to Hub Mail Routing
Posted on 2001-08-13
I have a client that has 2 Domino servers - a hub and a spoke on the same Notes Domain
All Users log into the Spoke server and when they send mail the spoke transfers the mail to the Hub's mail.box and the hub sends it out.
The problem comes when the users want to send mail to their HQ in another country also running a Domino server but on another Notes Domain. This Notes Domain is specified as an ajacent domain and the relevant connection document does exist. The Hub comes back with an error that it could not transfer the mail to the HQ server as the loop count has been exceeded and the recepient's forwarding address must be checked in the address book. The Recipient has not got a forwarding address. When the Recipient's Internet addresss is used then the mail does get to him but not with Notes Mail.
I then attempted to get the mail out of the spoke server to go directly to the HQ hub but that only works when the local hub is shut down then the spoke routes the mail. Otherwise it routes the mail through the hub and obviously the same error comes through. SMTP on the spoke is not enabled.
Can someone please help.
