Domino 10 - New Administrator Feature to Push to Notes Clients: Set Limits for Sending Mail

IBM Domino 10 is here. Faster, modern and with lower TCO. IBM Domino is back and better than ever including some great new Administrator features. In the next blog post I will describe some of these great new Domino 10 Administrator features. Really cool stuff. The first new Administrator feature I want to bring forward is a new feature to push to Notes Clients from a Mail Policy, Set Limits for Sending Mail. In Domino 10 it is now possible to set various limits and conditions to alert Notes users of when they send mail. Users will see one prompt alerting them to any limits and conditions that are found when they send messages. This feature requires the Domino 10 Directory template on the Domino server and the Notes 10 Mail template on the Notes client. Below the steps to set the limit and conditions in a Mail Policy on the Domino Server.
  • In the Domino directory select Configuration - Policies - Settings. 
  • Add a Mail Settings Policy document or edit an existing Mail Policy document.
  • Select Mail and select the Basics Tab, 
  • Next select Yes for Set outgoing limits. 
  • Select any of the following limits: 
    • Maximum document size
    • Maximum number of attachments
    • Maximum combined size of attachments
    • Maximum number of individual recipients. This setting limits the number of names allowed in all address fields. While a group name counts as one recipient a message is sent to all members of the group.
    • Internal domains used to specify the domains to allow messages to be sent to.

Next deploy the Mail Policy to all users using the Domino Console command 'tell adminp process mail policy'. 

In case any of the above new limits and conditions are set in the Mail Policy document or other limits such as 'Warn user about blank message subjects' or 'Do not allow users to set return receipt' are set  when users send messages that don't comply with any of the conditions and limits, users will see the errors oand warnings in one prompt as shown in the image below.

In my next blog posts more about the new Domino 10 Administrator features.
