Edit locations (Internet Mail Address)

HCL Notes® Internet-style mail uses secure MIME (S/MIME) protocols for sending and receiving encrypted and signed mail. Internet-style Notes® mail (S/MIME) is required to secure your mail to people over the Internet, and is optional to secure your mail to other Notes® users.

When you send Internet-style (S/MIME) signed mail, Notes® looks at your location document for your Internet mail address. Your location document Internet mail address must match the mail address in your default signing certificate, otherwise you will experience signing errors.

To change your Internet mail address in one or more of your location documents

  1. Click File > Security > User Security (Macintosh OS X users: Notes > Security > User Security).
  2. Click Mail, then click the "Internet-style Mail Options" button.
  3. Click the "Certificate Configuration" button under "Certificate options," then click the "More Signing Configuration" button.
  4. Click the "Edit Other Locations" button. Double-click the Internet mail address you want to change, and enter the new Internet mail address in the field that appears.
  5. To use the same address for all of your location documents, select the Internet mail address you want to use and then click the "Copy the selected address to all list entries" button. This is useful to do if you anticipate using the same S/MIME configuration for all locations. By default, you should set all locations to contain the same Internet mail address. Only those locations that switch your User ID should potentially contain a different Internet mail address.
