Inco,ming email settings for Lotus notes and Sharepoint

Posted on 2009-12-21

I have installed MOSS on Windows 2003 server.  Our company uses Lotus notes 8.0.1
I have configured the MOSS to send emails using our lotus notes server. Therefore this means the server on which MOSS is installed has been registered with our Domino server to be able to send emails.  This was a simple matter of setting in our Notes SMTP server address and a valid username to send the emails from.  My questions is incoming emails.
I would like MOSS to be able to receive emails when sending to the email address connected to the "list" in MOSS.
I have not installed STMP services on the server which has MOSS installed.

The setting as displayed on the attached image.
I have then goen to the Team Dicussion web site and selected incoming e-mail settings to allow this discussion to receive emails.

I then send an email from notes to that email address and nothing is displayed in sharepoint, what do I need to do that is missing?

You should also note the automatic is disabled in my settings.

    Why not? How should Domino know where to store your mails?

    Normally they are stored in a Notes database, but does MOSS know how to fetch them? Or does it know how to use IMAP or POP3 as a client?

    If you enable the SMTP server of MOSS, on a different port if on the same server, Domino can forward those mails to the MOSS SMTP server.
