Multiple domains
Our corporate structure consists of one corporate domain (acme.com) with multiple subsidiary domains (trains.com, planes.com, automobiles.com). We need to be able to have the users receive email from any or all of the sub-domains. We also need for the users to be able to send from any or all of the sub-domains so that the outbound email address reflects the appropriate sub-domain. For example, jim@acme.com receives an email on jim@trains.com & jim@planes.com, upon replying to the email message, the outbound address should reflect the domain for the message that was replied to (jim@trains.com) instead of the corporate domain (jim@acme.com). Second, what is the best practice for configuring the sub-domains in Domino so that email can be sent & received on a single Domino server. Finally, all of our email is processed through Barracuda's email filtering service in the cloud (all sub-domains included).

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In the public address book, there is a view called Domains; it’s under Configuration, Messaging.  In there, you should have a Global Domain document.  In that document, on the Conversions tab, there is a “Local primary Internet domain” field.  Yours probably says acme.com.  Below that, there is a “Alternate Internet domain aliases” field.  In there, you should put planes.com and trains.com  That will take care of the need to accept mail addressed to any of those domains.

As for outgoing, the only thing that comes to mind is to set up separate location documents for each of the domains.  Create a location doc called Planes.  Set the “Internet mail address” field to Jim@planes.com  Set up other location docs for the other domains.  The user would switch to the Planes location to send mail from Jim@planes.com.  and then switch to the Trains location doc to send mail from Jim@trains.com, etc.
