Our organization switched from Lotus Notes to Exchange/Outlook mail. But, as a Lotus Notes developer, I was permitted to stay with Notes. The problem is that any mail I send (or that any other Lotus Notes internal mailbox sends) to addresses in our company get classified as spam and sent by Exchange IMF to people's Junk folders.
The Exchange domain is ourhq.ourdomain.com, and the Lotus mail server domain is domino-mail.ourhq.ourdomai
n.com. And even if individuals add me to their Trusted Senders, IMF overrides this.
Searching experts-exchange and elsewhere, I've seen the whitelist solutions, but our Exchange admin doesn't want to complicate mail management with an add-in.
I have a gut feeling it has to do with IMF treating the subdomain as junk under some anti-relay, anti-spoofing heuristic or setting.
Solutions I might anticipate could include:
- Free and easy whitelist capability (how could MS NOT include this!). Is that what this hack is: http://forums.msexchange.org/m_1800395576/mpage_1/key_/tm.htm
- Fix IMF's bias against the sub-domain.
- Implement an Outlook rule that IMF doesn't override, then apply that globally to our organization.
Thank you. --David
