Dear All Expert,

I am fresh Domino learner and now I want to configure split Domain with Lotus Domino as primary and Zimbra mail server as secondary.

Can anyone give me the link or guide how to configure that?

Thank you. I need your help.

On the Domino side, you could set up Zimbra as a smart host, the host that deals with all mails Domino cannot handle, for a number of reasons, e.g. the user is unknown in Domino.

See https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSKTMJ_8.0.1/com.ibm.help.domino.admin.doc/DOC/H_USING_A_SMART_HOST_STEPS.html

Both domains should be different, i.e. Domino should accept company.com and Zimbra should accept something like zimbra.company.com

Hi Sanga Collins,

How about the Domino site? How to configure it?

I do not have experience with domino specifically, but from the few times I did this before with an exchange server as the primary, all the configuring for split domain takes place on the zimbra server. The primary server is configured with the default setup with an additional permission added for the zimbra server IP to be allowed to relay via the primary server.

Only just saw this question... probably too late anyway but from Domino you just configure smart host like Sjef says, except there should be no need to use a different domain or subdomain.

Incoming mail goes to Domino, if the email address is found in one of the address books defined on the server then it is delivered to that mailbox, if not it is sent on to the smart host which would be your Zimbra box.

Other alternative is you define a person document in Domino for each person who's mail is on the Zimbra system with a forwarding address using a sub-domain which you can accept on that system e.g.  steve@mydomain.com --> steve@zimbra.mydomain.local

Be careful if you also have a smart-host type system on the Zimbra system that points to Domino..... if an address is on neither such as junkmail coming in it will go around in circles until hop count is reached.
