I recently made changes to several Internet addresses in the person document(s) in the Domino directory, changing them to a domain name that we will soon inherit. (We're preparing to merge with another company and will be changing our Internet domain name.) I then changed those Internet e-mail addresses back to what they were originally. Since that time, I cannot send Internet e-mail to those addresses without a delivery failure saying "User not found in Domino directory." If I send an (Internet-intended) e-mail to someone such as firstname.lastname@example.org and we actually have a Notes user named email@example.com (our domain), then the e-mail is delivered to that user's Notes account rather than going out to the Internet to the proper domain. Could I have done damage by changing the Internet e-mail addresses and then changing them back to their original state? If so, what would be the fix?
We have a mixed environment of R5.10 and R6.5 servers all running on Linux (Redhat) with the exception of one Domino Blackberry server running on Windows 2000. Any help you can lend will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
When you first changed the email addresses, did you also change the Global Domino document to accept alternate Internet domains? Check for the "new" domain name in either the local primary Internet domain field, or the alternate Internet domain alias field (both found in the conversions tab of the Global Domain document).
