Multiple E-mail addresses and Forwarding
Posted on 2007-04-09
I have two inter-related questions. Both I know how to handle in Exchange, but can't figure out in Lotus Domino.
The first is - how can a mailbox have multiple e-mail addresses? For instance, in our old system, we could attach the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org to a particular mailbox as a secondary e-mail address. This can obviously be used as easily for something like "sales" as for common mis-spellings of a name.
The second is - how do I forward e-mail sent to one mailbox to another address? This may relate to the first question if there is no other way to accomplish the first thing. I need to know how to do this both for internal addresses and external addresses. For example -
I host e-mail for domain domain.com. I have a mailbox, email@example.com. I would like all messages sent to firstname.lastname@example.org to be automatically forwarded to email@example.com. Another part of this is if I have a user that doesn't check e-mail on our system all the time. I want them to receive their firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail, so I want to forward it to email@example.com.
I'll be glad to split points if necessary, but I figure this is all pretty simple for a Lotus admin, I'm just not a Lotus admin :).... yet.
