It’s not a new story, but today I had to do it again to restore our email relay successfully. so I am writing this just as a reference.
Recently we were having some issues in sending emails to various domains , in some particular case, our Public IP was blacklisted at one or two spam lists. To sort it out, we used our ISP’s SMTP (example: smtp.yoursip.com.pk)to relay mails successfully. Here is how you can add/change the relay host.
- From the Domino Administrator, click the Configuration tab and then expand the Messaging section.
- Choose Configurations.
- Select the Configuration Settings document and then click Edit Configuration.
- Click the Router/SMTP – Basics tab.
- Complete this field, and then click Save & Close:
|Relay host for messages leaving the local Internet domain|
As showed in the image below . . .
To take changes take effect immediately, issue this command at domino admin client
tell router update config
To remove relay host, simply remove the smtp entry and reload config.
