We recently purchased Lotus Domino and installed the server on a workgroup. We are able send email out but not receive it and the following error message inexplicably shows up: “Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently: fmc_admin/FMC@fmungereza.co.ug Technical details of permanent failure: The recipient server did not accept our requests to connect. Learn more at http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=7720 [Server1.fmungereza.co.ug. (10): Connection timed out]” Is it possible to set up Lotus in a workgroup? The company has a few computers so their domain is actually WORKGROUP.

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

Hi,

Could you please elaborate , is this a fresh installation or migration from an old server . You can send email because smtp service is running on your lotus domino server and if port 25 is open in your firewall it will allow you to send any email from any smtp server even a simple vista smtp server.

There are several possible causes of the problem.
First review the basic requrements for smtp colaboration:

1. Fully qualified domain name for your Smtp server.
2. Smtp relay host ( if you are relaying your mx record from ISP, you should configure this on your Domino configuration documents smtp relay host)
3. Check what Gabe9527 mentioned, If you have a firewall, definetely you are forwarding your smtp public ip to you locally configured LAN ip of the mail server. Check if smtp traffic is properly forwarded to the lan IP of your mail server and you should allow smtp traffic in the packet filter.

    As long as the email SMTP traffic gets to the server through your firewall the Domino server will get it. Domino Does not care about the OS or IP as long as it can see itself. Check there is no firewall blocking it or that you dont have any restrictions in the ROUTING / SMTP inbound rules etc.

    Lotus Domino does not have to be installed in a Windows domain; it functions very nicely completely independent of other systems on your network. You might want to test your installation with a direct telnet SMTP connection to your server, both from inside your network and from outside the firewall. There are instructions on how to do this at .
