Notes Connector and Foreign Domain

Hi all -

I recently setup the notes connector for ms exchange 2003.  I am having a couple problems.  The first appears to be that the incoming mail to the Notes serveris not routed to the foreign domain.  If I address an email to user@foreign domain, then the connector picks it up just fine.  I have checked that the server name is correct in the foreign domain.  The second is more of a question.  Are the sent folders from outlook and notes supposed to be in sync?  Any thoughts would be appreciated.  Thanks -

when you say incoming mail, do you mean SMTP? Are the SMTP domains the same between notes and exchange?

It won't do that by default that I know of. So what you want is a message that comes in to a notes user to automatically be copied to the same user but in the foreign domain.

You would have to create some custom agent to do this, or maybe do it on the client side with the "send full copy to" rule.

How is the server supposed to correspond the foreign domain name with the notes user name when delivering the message

I tried to create that agent, but all emails came from the user, not the person who sent the email.  Not sure what you mean by your question.  The notes connector for exchange interacts with the foreign domain.  If you can help me setup the agent, that would be great.  Not too familar with notes over here.  Thanks -

You are correct the connector interracts with the foreign domain, but it does not expect the same person to exist on both systems at the same time. It is meant to allow you to co-exist between systems but not synchronize mail for the same person on two different environments.

For example the connector would allow John Smith@Company1@Notes to e-mail Jane Doe@Comapny2@Exchange. It is not meant for Jane Doe@Company2@exchange to be able to e-mail John Smith@Company1@Notes and have it also go to John Smith@Company2@Exchange. To the connector and Notes these are 2 different people.

The signer of the agent is the one that the e-mails will come from. I know there are agents like this out there but I will have to research them

Also, I think you will take a serious performance hit trying to do this as well. You are having to process the same message multiple times as well as store it multiple times.

Thanks for the info.  I am not too worried about the performance hit because we are a small company.  Also, the emails will be stored on two seperate boxes, so I don't think there should be a storage issue.  I was trying to run parrellel for a couple of weeks so folks could train ... if something happened, then they could switch back to notes and at least have their inbox.

I have also been researching the agent to forward the mail from the original sender.  Will you let me know if you come up with anything?  I will do the same.  FYI, we run R5 client and domino.  Thanks again.
