Hello,

I work alot with Domino at work, but would like to setup a enviroment at home, I just don't know how to set it up to accept mail & send mail.

I have domainname.com registered.
Point the MX record to my server.

Where in Domino do I set it to accept the incomming mail??  
I take it when setting up domino I should make my Domino domain the same name as the registered domain name?

You should read the admin help on SMTP and internet mail.

You will need a static address for your server for setting the MX recod.

You will need to set u a DOMAIN doc in addition.

I hope this helps !

I have my domain pointing using no-ip.com that can be updated on the fly to get around the whole ISP issue.  Also, for sending email, how does that work, since I need to authencate with my ISP before mail goes out.  Is that in the server document aswell?

No, you cannot do that. Servers cannot authenticate with you mail provider as a personal address.

Commented:
Agreed, your ISP will not allow your server to push mail to their mail.server.  You can, however, configure a/your location document to send mail directly to the internet, and then create a SMTP account in your personal nab that does authenticate with your ISP.   Once you create the SMTP account in your personal NAB, notes will create smtp.box on your local along with an item in your replication page.

There are agents you could run to pull from a POP account if you want to pull you existing mail onto the Domino server. I recommend using a non-public DNS Name for the domain. You will need to be sure the Domino server can send SMTP outbound and that it can query DNS for the mx-lookups.

Would somthing like zone edit or no-ip work for pointing the IP address to my computer?

You see with my hosting space I can change the MX record to point to what ever server I would like to.  So it would actually be my hosting provider pushing mail to my Domino server, not the ISP.

I was thinking of pointing my MX records to zone edit or NO-IP since you can change the IP address at No-IP or Zone edit on the fly.

I would perfer not to pull from a pop account.    Does anyone currently have this type of setup configured.

Incoming:
- mail sent to hosting provider, e.g. codeit (at) hosting.com
- Linux server with Domino
- run fetchmail every 5 minutes to read from a POP account, it send via SMTP to the Domino server

Outgoing:
- directly from your Notes client (set this up in your Location document)
- you need an Account and possibly a Connection document
