How do I set up locations for Internet mail manually?

If you create Internet mail account(s) manually instead of during configuration, you may want to set up one or more locations for Internet mail.

To set up one or more locations:

Procedure

  1. Do one of the following:
    • To use the one mail file for both HCL Domino® and Internet mail, click File > Locations > Manage Locations, click Online, and click Edit.
    • To use separate files by creating a location where you want to use Internet mail, click FileLocationsManage Locations and click New.
      Note: You can also access your locations by clicking File > Preferences and then Locations.
  2. If you're creating the Internet location, click a type from the list in the Location type field.
    • For use over a phone line modem, click Network Dialup.
    • For use over a network (for example at your office), a cable modem, or a DSL line, click Local Area Network.
      Note: Do not use Notes Direct Dialup.
  3. Do one of the following in the Internet mail address field:
    • If you're using only one location, enter the Internet version of your organizational Notes® mail address, for example, jsmith@acme.com.
    • If you're creating a separate Internet location for personal mail, enter the Internet mail address assigned by your ISP, for example, myfunname@myisp.com.
  4. Click the Mail tab.
  5. Enter the domain of your Domino home server in Internet domain for Notes addresses when connecting directly to the Internet. For example, if your Domino server MailServer/Acme has the address mailserver.acme.com, the Internet domain would be acme.com.
    Note: If you are using HCL Notes only for Internet mail with no Domino server, leave this field as is.
  6. Do one of the following to specify where to collect your POP or IMAP Offline mail:
    • If this location is for both Domino and Internet mail, enter the name of your Notes mail file (for example, mail\jsmith.nsf) in the Mail file field.
    • If this is a separate location for your Internet (POP or IMAP Offline) mail only, enter the file name of your POP or IMAP application.
    • If this is a separate location for your Internet IMAP Online mail, enter the file name of your IMAP proxy application.
  7. Do one of the following:
    • To work with no connection and use replication to send and receive mail at this location, set Mail file location to Local. When you're ready, you can click the Replication tab to set up a replication schedule.
    • To work directly on the Internet mail server (for example if you have IMAP Online mail), set Mail file location to on Server.
  8. Set the field Send outgoing mail to directly to Internet.
    Note: Your Domino server may be capable of handling outgoing Internet mail (ask your administrator), but even if it is, you may not want to send your personal Internet mail through your organization's server.
  9. Click OK.

Results

Note: You can use the Replication page to receive POP and IMAP Offline mail, send SMTP mail, and replicate IMAP and newsgroup proxy applications.

Steps

Store all your mail, Domino and Internet, in a single mail file and send all your mail using one identity.

Edit your existing most commonly used location, for example the Online location, and perform the steps in To set up one or more locations.

At step 3: Enter an Internet mail address based on your Domino mail name, or the Internet mail address assigned by your ISP if you want all sent mail to appear under that name.

At step 6: Specify a single mail file.

At step 8: Send outgoing Internet mail through a Domino server (if your Domino server allows it; ask your administrator.)

Store your Internet mail separately from your Domino mail (for example if Internet mail is personal and Domino mail is for your organization). Use two identities on the Internet.

Create a location to use for your Internet mail, and perform the steps in To set up one or more locations.

At step 3: Enter the Internet mail address assigned by your ISP.

At step 6: Enter the title of an existing local mail application other than your Domino mail. This application will collect your Internet mail.

At step 8: Send outgoing Internet mail through a SMTP server. To use an SMTP server you must have an account.
