I have been trying for a couple of days to set up a Domino 8.5 server. Basically, I want everything to be run inside a local network. Right now I can send email to other user in the Domino directory without any mail address. I am pretty new to all this stuff, so maybe the answer will be really obvious.
What I need to do is be able to send a mail from somewhere else to a domino user that will be redirected to his account.
On the Domino server, I also have hMailServer installed on port 25. I configured Domino to use port 26.
I followed those step to get where I am now.
-I have set the Fully qualified Internet host name to "preview.notes".
-Smtp Listener task changed to Enabled to turn on the Listener so that the server can receive messages routed via SMTP routing
-Setting up SMTP routing within the local Internet domain (http://www.h2l.com/help/help85%5Fadmin.nsf/f4b82fbb75e942a6852566ac0037f284/7f9738a49efc4f58852574d500097b01?OpenDocument)
-I modified the person to use the firstname.lastname@example.org address.
-I'm using the hMailServer (which have the local "preview.local" domain name) to send mail to email@example.com.
When sending mail I got an error telling that the DNS is not set up correctly.
Is using the Domino Smtp server instead of hMailServer will solve the problem? I can Telnet the Domino Smtp Server.
