You can use policy setting document “Mail settings” to deploy a standard message disclaimer for your users.

First you have to configure your domino server which makes the smtp conversion of internet mails. For this server open the “configuration document” and check if “Message disclaimers” is enabled.

Now we need a policy for all traveler users, or if you want to deploy personalized signatures, for each traveler user.

I created a dynamic policy (explicit policy document and set of group/user in “policy assignment”) for my traveler user and made a mail setting document for the disclaimer:

2011 02 28 1227 1

“Notes client can add disclaimer” to disabled: So the server will append/prepend the disclaimer text. This is important, because the traveler client don’t act as a notes client, so it is the only way to deploy a disclaimer text with domino tools on traveler.

Append will set your disclaimer text to top of your mail, and prepend on the bottom.

Mail and Traveler settings are applied to mail files on the server by the Administration Process every 12 hours by default. Adminp can be triggered on the server console: “tell adminp process mailpolicy” or “tell adminp process traveler”.

Or you change the notes.ini value ADMINP_POLL_INTERVALL=(time in minutes), that adminp process these settings more often.

Last week I had an issue that some Domino Server didn’t provide SSO through SPNEGO any longer (environment worked for over 2 years now).

Since years i think that the Internet Lockout Feature of IBM Domino is not enough. The function is documented here: IBM Domino Administrator Help Cite of this document: There are some usage restrictions for Internet password lockout: You can only use Internet password lockout with Web access. Other Internet protocols and services, such as LDAP, POP, IMAP, DIIOP, IBM® Lotus® Quickr®, and IBM Sametime® are not currently supported. However, Internet password lockout can be used for Web access if the password that is used for authentication is stored on an LDAP server So documentation tells us, that only HTTP can be secured through inetlockout.
