We have several pop accounts with an ISP. We access these accounts with a share dialup connection. Our email program is actually Outlook Express. We want to migrate to Domino R5. Is it possible to use configure Domino so that it can:
- Collect the email for each user that has an account with the ISP
- Send external (internet) email through the ISP using the pop accounts
- Send internal notes messages with the dominos accounts
Is it possible to create just one mailbox in Notes and have the Domino server to handle both external ISP pop accounts and internal Notes messages?
I will try to give you some basics to start with because I would really need to see your situation to give you a complete answer. First, you can have your R5 client collect both Notes mail and external POP3 mail into one mail file. It would all come into the same Inbox. As for sending and receiving via the ISP, you would need to setup some Account documents in your Personal Address Book. You would need a SMTP account and a POP account. Fill in the information accordingly. This should get you started. A question is, why would you want to continue your POP account access? Is it because of name and domain concerns? You could set all of this up in Domino and just setup your Domino server to route all Internet mail to your ISP. In turn, your ISP could route all inbound Internet mail to your server that could then route the mail to your users.
