Does IBM plan to fix this issue which has existed over a year??? I noticed the same issue when I upgraded to Notes 9.0.1 FP4 in August 2015. I researched all the Notes forums, wikis and blogs and could not find a solution. I have been using IBM Notes for over 5 years as a SMTP mail client to send outbound mail (via a local mailbox) directly to SMTP. i.e. Sending using my Gmail email address via the Gmail SMTP server
And some of my customers are using it as well to bypass strict outbound company server rules when using 3rd party mail merge tools which integrate with Notes. i.e. Print Merge Reporter for IBM Notes -- Mail merge Excel to email messages (aka PMR mail merge tool)
My customers and I started receiving the errors below after the 9.0.1 FP4 and it has never worked again thru 9.0.1 FP6. :( My customers had to downgrade or install Notes 9.0.1 FP3 on a VM desktop to keep the existing functionality they were using for several years -- since at least 2012. :( FYI: And as of June 16, 2016 if you are using Gmail with IBM Notes it seems Google will no longer be accepting SSL3 connections, so this workaround most likely not even work for Gmail: http://www.securityweek.com/google-soon-kill-sslv3-rc4-support-gmail
