IBM® Lotus Notes® Traveler user mail databases do not need to reside on the same Domino® server as the Lotus Notes Traveler service. In a remote configuration, the Lotus Notes Traveler service looks up the Lotus Notes Traveler mail server name and file name of the user from the local names.nsf and remotely connects to that mail server when needed.
Remote mail databases
Make sure that the Lotus Notes Traveler server can physically connect to the remote servers. To verify this connection, from the Domino server console on the Lotus Notes Traveler server, enter this command:
This command shows connection routing information that shows you if there are any problems with the route between the Lotus Notes Traveler server and the specified remote server.
Local mail databases
While it is possible to run the Lotus Notes Traveler service on the same Domino server that is hosting mail files, it is best to do this only for smaller installations. In general, the Lotus Notes Traveler service runs on a machine separate from other applications, such as IBM Lotus® Sametime® or IBM Lotus Quickr®.
For invitation responses to flow correctly, mail routing must be configured on the Lotus Notes Traveler Domino server.
Remote mail database support
Lotus Notes Traveler server can connect to remote mail databases hosted by Domino 7.0.2 servers or above. The Domino remote mail server can be any operating system supported by Domino.
Mail file template support
Lotus Notes Traveler server supports standard and iNotes® mail file templates, version 6.5 and above.
