How to configure Domino to use an ISP for mail routing with SMTP after POP3 authentication?
Posted on 2004-08-23
For historical reasons, I'm running Domino for my tiny company (Domino 6.5.1). Since the server is a standalone box, I decided to work with an ISP for web and mail. From the ISP, I download mail using a third-party utility which logs onto all POP3 accounts of the ISP, downloads the mails and delivers them to Domino as SMTP mails. The utility performs some virus scanning at the same time.
For outbound mail, I have configured the Notes clients to send mail directly to the ISP. Clients log on to the ISP with SMTP after POP3 and deliver their mail to the ISP.
This configuration works great so far. However, for a number of reasons, I'd prefer to use the Domino Server as a relay and let the server submit the mails to the ISP. The ISP says that he requires SMTP after POP3 authentication.
In Domino, I understand that I can configure a "Relay host for messages leaving the local internet domain" in the configuration document; this appears to be the right setting. However, I have not found a way to tell Domino to authenticate to the relay (SMTP) host. On the client, this would be an account document.
Does anybody have an idea how to solve this?
