Incorrect number of email recipients?
iQ.Suite Tips & Tricks for IBM Domino
Here you want to prevent massmailings and check whether an email is being sent to too many recipients.
Take, for example, a Wall MailJob.
If you only send the mail tointernal or external recipients, the job works fine.
However, when a user sends anemail to internal and external recipients, the mail is forwarded although thetotal number of recipients may have exceeded the predefined, maximum number ofrecipients.
The reason for this is thatthe Lotus Notes client, based on a default setting, converts all emails goingto internet addressees into the Mime format, while leaving the others in theRich Text Format.
This means the Lotus Notesclient creates two outbound email streams, each having its own recipient list.
If both recipient lists remainunder the predefined, maximum number of recipients, the email will be routedwithout alteration.
The setting that causes thisis found in the Location documents of the Notes client.
(Or via Local Address Book – Extended)
If the selection for "Format for messages addressed to internet addresses:" is "MIME Format", the Notes client generates two messages.
If, however, the selection is changed to "Notes Rich Text Format", only one email is generated (the Domino router then only converts emails into the Mime format on request).
Blocking is carried out asdesired:
The setting can be changed onthe client itself or centrally via "Policies und Settings".
Other client administrationtools can of course also be used for configuration purposes.
