    Postfix/Sendmail and IBM Lotus Domino


    Dear Gurus

    Email Domain: test.com
    Lotus Domino IP: 10.2.2.251/24
    Lotus Domino FQDN: msg1.test.com

    IBM Lotus Domino is running and configured for Mail and Messaging.
    Now we want that Lotus Domino doesnt face the internet, but there will be a Linux based mail server(postfix or sendmail) that will recieve the mails from outside/internet, do some filtering etc, and then pass the emails to the Lotus Domino. Likewise postfix/sendmail also recives the emails from Lotus Domino, and send email to the appropriate destination/internet.

    Now
    1, what to do on postfix/sendmail so that it will forward/pass all the emails it recives from internet/outside for test.com to the Lotus Domino Server.

    2, what to do on postfix/sendmail so that it will ACCEPT and Forward/Send all the emails it recives from Lotus Domino to the internet/outside.

    Please help

    Regards
    Maaz

    Hi,
    I'm not sure i understood ur problem correctly.
    Here is wat i tried while setting up sendmail server.
    Ip 1.2.3.4 is an application server.(linux+apache+mysql+php+sendmail)
    Ip 5.6.7.8 is an mail server(linux+sendmail)

    At application server:
    1) edit sendmail.mc file
    set SMART_HOST(`Give ur mail server name');
    2)Comment DAEMON_OPTIONS like this,
    dnl DAEMON_OPTIONS(`PORT=smpt,Addr=127.0.0.1,Name=MTA' )dnl
    3)run this command,
    m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
    4)service sendmail restart

    Make sure sendmail port 25 is open & ur mail server name is in /etc/hosts file

    At Mail Server:
    1)edit sendmail.mc file.
    Comment above said DAEMON OPTION line by placing dnl in front of it.
    2)Run these commands
    m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
    service sendmail restart
    3)edit /etc/mail/access
    place a new entry,
    connect:1.2 RELAY
    4)go to
    cd /etc/mail
    type,
    make


    This is what it did for FC-4 machine ...it seems like working.

    Thanks a lot for help, I am asking the same question but with a bit/small difference

    Internet_Mail_Server FQDN: mail.test.com, private IP: 10.0.0.225/24
    Internet_Mail_Server MTA: POSTFIX, and facing the internet

    Local_Mail_Server FQDN: local.test.com, ip: 10.0.0.125/24
    Local_Mail_Server MTA: POSTFIX, and Doesnt face the internet

    Yet Didnt configure the Internet_Mail_Server(need help)

    following is the Postfix configuration of Local_Mail_Server :

    myhostname = local.test.com
    mydomain = test.com
    myorigin = test.com
    inet_interfaces = all
    mydestination = $myhostname, localhost, $mydomain
    mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8, 10.0.0.0/24

    rest of the options are all the default.

    Now I need help to configure the

    1, Local_Mail_Server to forward all the emails for outside/INTERNET to the Internet_Mail_Server(mail.test.com, private ip 10.0.0.225/24)

    2, Internet_Mail_Server so that it will ACCEPT all the emails(going to internet) comming from Local_Mail_Server and then forward/pass those emails TO internet

    3, Internet_Mail_Server so that it will forward/pass all the emails for test.com domain(comming from internet/outside) to the Local_Mail_Server(10.0.0.125/24)

    Please help
    Regards
