Let's say there's a company named Gates and there's a guy, Bill Gates, who is the name of company founder.
In the Gates company other members of the Gates family work, each with their own email address, say:
The mail server is Lotus Domino 8.5, the Domino domain is "gates".
Problem is that all company people get e-mail address from Internet EXCEPT those whose lastname is Gates, i.e. whose e-mail address is X.email@example.com.
Delivery was not successful because:
User b (firstname.lastname@example.org) not listed in Domino Directory
I got almost crazy looking aDomino mail setting to solve the issue. No way.
My first workaround was to update people person documents with a fake "X" username entry.
Very later I found this IBM technote:
Last name part of an Internet mail address is interpreted as the domain
that give directions for my issue: I setup the NOTES.INI variable
and all is working. Finally.
Am I missing something or still in Domino 8.5 we have to fix such issue with another notes.ini variable?
Never getting bored with Domino ;-)
