Routing messages coming from the same domain
We have two Domino servers in the same domain in different geographical locations, both running 5.09/5.09a for Web access only. Each location has a different Internet domain name. This does not cause any issues for normal SMTP mail as the person document reflects the correct user return address. However mail sent from the Web server only picks up the first domain name in the global domain document and the return address is username/OU2/OU1/O@domain1.com How can we reflect the correct domain for mail sent from each location and prevent the full hierarchical name from being shown.
Why route them via SMTP? If they are in the same domain, I'd route the messages via NRPC. The advantages of Notes-to-Notes connections are huge. You can natively encrypt documents, as well as the ports between the two servers. NRPC traffic is also far less chatty than SMTP. Finally, there are some compression routines built into NRPC.
