A good DNS service is very important for a mail server.

On Linux servers you need to put your DNS servers on a file called resolv.conf. In general you have two entries like this:

nameserver1   192.168.10.10
nameserver2   10.10.1.1

If one server does not respond then linux will try the second, but there is a timeout for this:

timeout:n
                     Sets the amount of time the resolver will wait for a
                     response from a remote name server before retrying the
                     query via a different name server. This may not be the
                     total time taken by any resolver API call and there is
                     no guarantee that a single resolver API call maps to a
                     single timeout.  Measured in seconds, the default is
                     RES_TIMEOUT (currently 5, see <resolv.h>).  The value
                     for this option is silently capped to 30.

If you want to speed this resolution change resolv.conf to:

options rotate
options timeout:1
nameserver1 192.168.10.10
nameserver2 10.10.1.1

Using the configuration above, both nameserver in rotation and wait max. 1 second for answer before trying the next one.

Today i receive an mail with this article.

Some administration features that are available in an on-premises Lotus Domino environment are unavailable, are implemented differently, or have limitations within the SmartCloud Notes service.

It is very important to know this differences.

Domino

You can have Domino add a phrase to the sender’s address on outbound SMTP mail and specify the name component to use as the address phrase. By default, addresses do not include phrases. If you choose not to support phrase-style addresses, you can specify that Domino remove any user-added phrases in the recipient fields of outbound messages.

You configure this address format using the “RFC822 phrase handling” field in the Configuration Settings document, under the MIME – Advanced – Advanced Outbound Message Options tab.

The Router adds phrases to Internet addresses both when taking the address from a Person document in the Domino Directory and when constructing the address from rules in the Global domain document.

This setting applies to messages sent over SMTP to another host or exported to the IMAP or POP3 service. It does not apply to messages delivered to mail files on the server or messages transferred over IBM® Lotus® Notes® routing.

The options for this field are as follows:

  • Do not add phrase — (Default setting) Outbound mail displays the sending user’s RFC 821 address. The Router permits user-defined phrases in recipient addresses.
  • Use DN as phrase — Constructs an RFC 822-style address using a phrase part derived from the person’s hierarchical, distinguished name; for example, John Jones/Sales/ACME <[email protected]>. The Router permits user-defined phrases in recipient addresses.
  • Use alt. name if available – otherwise DN — If an Alternate name is specified in the user’s Person document, constructs an RFC 822-style address using it as the phrase part; otherwise uses the hierarchical, distinguished name; for example, “John Jones/Sales/ACME” <[email protected]>. The Router permits user-defined phrases in recipient addresses.
  • Remove Phrase – The Router strips user-defined phrases in recipient addresses. Only RFC 821-style addresses are allowed.
  • Use CN as phrase — Constructs an RFC 822-style address using a phrase part derived from the person’s common name; for example, John Jones <[email protected]>. The Router permits user-defined phrases in recipient addresses.
