Hi I am very new to notes and was told that it is a much better platform to use than exchange. I am setting up the notes server Release 6.5.1 on IBM OS/400. So far I have got it to the point I can send email internal. However ifi try to send out to the internet It tells me ...

Your document: Mail Trace Message
was not delivered to:  
because: Delivery time expired

Any ideas? I am sure it is a setting I have wrong but I am a little lost. So any suggestions would be great.

Thanks

You need to set it up so the server kown where to send SMTP, and make sure that it CAN send SMTP.  The setup should include a Global Domain Document, and, in the most common scenario, an SMTP foreign domain for *.* and an SMTP Connection document.  That wil allow the Notes environment to know that a particuar server will be able to send all internet messages.  If that server can reach the entire internet, and has DNS configured so that it can resolve all public internet host names, then you are through.  Otherwise, you probably need to specify a relay host in a server Configuration document (not a plain server document).

There;s lots of other stuff you should know about relaying and spam, etc.

When you say document I am a little lost but I do understand what you are saying about the DNS I will check that. I am very new to Lotus Notes server and I am trying to switch from exchange. It is taking me forever just to navigate around and find things because I am so unfirmilar with this system. Thank you for your help and any more tips would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for this late repsonse.  Records in Notes are called documents, so all the entries in the Domino Directory (or server Name and Address Book) are documents.

Some of those documents are called Domains, and one type of Domain is the Global DOmain (which designates how Notes should gloabally handle some basic SMTP settings for the entire mail domain, or for one SMTP mail domains it should handle traffic... nobody is really sure why they call it a global domain).

There's also this tricky business of setting up SMTP connections and SMTP domains.  The SMTP domain specifies that the system can handle traffic for a particular internet ost -- e.g., ibm.com, or *.com, or *.* for everything.  But, they separated that from teh connection document taht specifies which servers can handle the domain, for flexibility (that way, you can have two servers handle one domain, and one of those and a backup handle another domain).  FLexible, but confusing.  The SMTP Foreign Domains are found alongside the Global Domains, in the Domains view of the Directory.  The SMTP Connection documents are in the Connections view.  You make up a "fake domain name" to tie the two together -- designate a domain of AllTheInternet for the *.* SMTP domain, and set up a connection document, type SMTP , from your SMTP server to either an external relay host or blank for direct sends -- and have this SMTP connection designate the same AllTheInternet domain for its destination server domain field.
