Add option to authenticate in Foreign SMTP Domain

If I want to route a mail to a certain SMTP Domain to another host than my other smtp mails are routed to, I create a "Foreign SMTP Domain". Unfortunately I cannot add authentication information to it.

The only way for authenticated SMTP Relaying is in the Server Configuration.

Please add the authentication option to "Foreign SMTP Domain" configuration document.

    is it possible to add a possibility to use SMTP client authentication with a certificate on a SMTP outbound session ?

    In O365 connectors, you can set that you require an SMTP client authenticated session but at this moment it is not possible to do so in a Domino config.

    In my opinion this should be configurable in Foreign SMTP Domain Document and/or SMTP Server Connections Document.

    Foreign SMTP Domain if a smtp-relais host is selected instead of a "next" Domain.

    Once a relais-host is selected or in case a SMTP Server Connections Document is used

    you should be able to set

    • Target Port if differnt from default (25/465)

    • Encrypted Connections, TLS, or unencrypted

    • With or without Authentication

    • if with Authentication : UserName and Password.

Multiple SMTP relay with authentication

If there are two multiple SMTP relays that require authentication, it would be possible to add the login data to the "Foreign SMTP Domain" document. Or some other option.
