I have one Domino server. The domain is ABC.com (firstname.lastname@example.org). Inside our company a group of individuals act as a different company, and they require and different e-mail address sending and receiving. I thought setting up a new global document with the other domain def.com (email@example.com) would solve my problem.
Unfortunately, if the user isn't in the def.com domain, it searches the abc.com domain. I would like to keep the two domains from looking at each other. If someone sends mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and there is no such user, it should send back a delivery failure, but instead it searches abc.com and sends the mail there.
Could you please help?
You need to set your server to only do "fullname" lookups. This is set in the configuration document under Router/SMTP -- Basics in the "Address Lookup" field. Be careful with this setting, as the lookup happens in a different view, $Users. The names in there are only found in the "User Name" field of the person record. Entries that only exist in the "Short Name" field will not be valid. Those entries must be put into the "User Name" field in addition to the person's hierarchical Notes name.
The $Users-view contains all values in the ShortName, InternetAddress as well as the UserName-field (plus some other combinations). However, the server will always look for a perfect match in the first column (email@example.com); otherwise the mail will be non-deliverable (with a "user not found" error).
