Julie -> RE: Setting From Field with doc.Principal... ugh!!! Matt Chant 15.Aug.00 01:41 PM a Web browser Domino Designer -- Agents 5.0.3Windows 95/98
Once the Admin has added an Internet Address in the InternetAddress field of their person document, try it again and see if it makes a difference.
Exhaustive won't make a difference unless you have multiple NABs/Directories where the users exist in multiple sources.
At this point I can only suggest some troubleshooting steps.
Stop the Router on the box that sends SMTP.
Set SMTPClientDebug=3 in the .ini
Send a test message from the Agent.
Note the contents of the From, Principal and any inet* fields in the note as it sits in the mail.box on the SMTP server.
Start the Router and let it send the message SMTP.
Now look at the message as its received at the other end.
Does it have an SMTP From: header and what does it contain ? Does it have an SMTP Sender: header and what does it contain ?
What did the debug trace in the log say for the SMTP session ?
Principal isn't a guarentee of anything, it allows Notes to send an SMTP message that differentates the Sender (Notes From: SMTP Sender:) with the intended From (Notes Principal, SMTP From:). if the receiving SMTP system/client displays the Sender: instead of the From: then it would appear that Notes didn't use the Principal, when in fact it did. You have to look at the underlying SMTP message source rather than rely on what the UI is telling you.
