Mail Routing in Lotus Domino R5 and R6

Hi All,

I need to know how to configure my Lotus Notes R5 Hub Server to redirect different mails to different notes smtp servers.

The situation is like this, we have a notes servers each in a 5 countries, all of them routes their mails to a hub server, which then redirects the mails to a notes R6 smtp server. Now we need to configure the hub server to filter out mails from test.com and route them to a new smtp server which will be a R6.

The new R6 smtp server will then forward all the mails it recieves to an exchange smtp server.

Well i'm not good at Lotus... so i would be grateful if the answers are more dummy proof. Thanks!

I'll start the ball rolling, and I'm sure the other EE's will pitch in and either repeat or add to my comments.

Most of this can be found in the Administration Help database - very specific instructions:
Creating an SMTP Connection document
Transferring outbound Internet mail to an SMTP server over Notes routing  

Open up your Administrator Client, and in messaging you will create a new Domain, and in Domain type select: "foreign SMTP domain" document for smtp routing.  In this document you can specify the domain to "catch",  which domains can send or not send mail, and mail to "xxx.com" should be routed to  a server or internet domain.

Then be sure you have a SMTP connection document for each server to the destination server.

So, under connections, create a new connection, select "SMTP" for type.  Fill out the destination server name, and then go to the replication, disable the Replication, but enable the mail replication and set the times the server should call to deliver smtp mail.

The smtp listening task must be turned on, Port 25 enabled in your firewall, and the server that is receiving mail from the internet needs to named in your mx records.

But, really, start with Administration Help, and search on SMTP - the instructions are step by step, detailed.  Then you can come back here and clarify things you don't understand.
