Allow user based SMTP relay in Domino server

Currently we cannot relay the mails from User A to specific relay server while User B to another relay server unless they are on different mail servers. So there is a feature request to allow user based relay so that mails of particular users will relay through specific relay server.

    Our customer uses Cyren for incoming and outgoing Mail. But Cyren does not allow bulk mails, they don't want to lose reputation. That's why the use another relay host specialized on bulk mails. We solved the problem by installing a separated domino server.It would be fine if we could route mails based on senders address to the specific relay host

    Some countries uses some implementation of Registered Electronic Mail (REM).

    What we do is to peek the mail from a external POP4/IMAP server but the answer should be sent via a specific SMTP server (due to the fact the an external entity have to verify the user identity and add certificates to the mail)

    It can be done locally using a specific configuration (location + smtp connection) but it would be very nice (and way more professional) to achieve it on the server.

    This would be relevant when emails from senders in a particular internet domain(s) need to be routed out through a specific (ie. non-default) AV/AS service and where the users reside on the same mail servers/cluster.

    For example: User A has smtp address usera@domainA.tld. The outgoing route should be through gateway relay server A . User B has SMTP address userb@domainB.tld and should through a different gateway relay server B. This can only be arranged now by having these two users reside on two different domino mail servers. It is inefficient use of resources to have multiple servers to accomplished this source address based routing.

    Reason to have this feature is the outgoing mail needs different outgoing gateways to the Internet due the requirements assigned to these internet domains.tld. Like SPF records, DKIM signing. Also the organisation structure forced this. DNS and gateway of domainA is managed by different department or outsourced (connected through VPN) and domainB is managed by own department with own Internet connection. I've several (very large) customers using this type of construction with not two but many domains, gateways and with mixed email platforms (Domino, Exchange, ...). How we workaround this now is to use postfix mail relay servers to do the sourced based routing. It would be very nice to have this incorporated into Domino.

    Can you please provide more details on why you need to have sender based routing?


Route Internet/Email address

Please add a feature to Domino, that it can re-route a specific email address inbound and outbound to a specific SMTP server. It can be on the SMTP In/Outbound Controls Tab or Rules tab under Router/SMTP.
