Lotus Domino 8 Mail Administration
Lotus Training Overview

During this course you will configure traditional Notes Mail as well as standards-based SMTP mail transfer and delivery. You will set up several mail clients, including Notes, Internet mail (POP/Outlook Express), Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook, and a browser for WebMail and Domino Web Access.

This course stresses the role of directories, including the Domino Directory, Directory Catalog, Mobile Directory Catalog, and Extended Directory Catalog, and how to make them available via Directory Assistance. It also covers the configuration of Domino to support LDAP requests.

This course also covers mail security for both Notes and Internet mail clients, including how to configure SSL on Domino and to issue Internet Certificates to users for digital signing and encryption.

Lotus Training Learning Objectives

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • configure intranet and Internet mail routing using the NRPC and SMTP protocols
  • set up Notes to send and receive mail, set up an Internet mail client to send mail via SMTP and retrieve mail via POP3 or IMAP4 protocols, use a browser to access mail via WebMail or Domino Web Access, and configure Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook
  • utilize the various directory types for mail addressing as well as for mail transfer and delivery
  • configure the Domino Server to support address lookups by Internet mail clients using LDAP
  • configure the NRPC and SMTP Router controls and restrictions to improve routing performance and reduce unsolicited email
  • utilize Notes Mail security features and serve as your own Internet Certificate Authority, create server and client Internet Certificates, enable SSL, and digitally sign and encrypt mail sent to Internet mail clients
  • support Notes Calendar and scheduling, including inter-domain resource reservations
  • configure Notes Mail to use a Shared Object Store
  • reduce Mail database size by applying a Single Copy Template and/or use design note compression
  • manage Notes Mail files using Domino Administrator with the assistance of the Administration Process
  • utilize mail monitoring, tracking, and journaling features
  • retain messages using archiving and journalling
  • monitor and troubleshoot mail transfer and delivery.
