Controlling messaging

After you set up basic mail routing, use IBM® Domino® administrative controls to customize the messaging system to your environment. Using the Domino® Administrator and other tools you can change settings that affect routing performance, protect the system from unauthorized use, schedule message transfer, and ensure efficient use of network bandwidth and storage space.

Some of the settings you change apply to all of the messages that the server processes, regardless of whether a message is sent or received using IBM® Notes® routing or SMTP routing; other settings are specific to a particular routing protocol.

As you customize your messaging system, you may need to troubleshoot problems that occur. While you are troubleshooting, you can:

  • Change the log level to record additional messaging information
  • Temporarily disable mail routing
