Lotus Protector – Notifications (1/6/2010)


Time for a new update.

A) The system is working really well, this is truly a fire-and-forget-missile type device. No blips, no blurps, and no jiggles either.

B) Error reporting is great! I just got a Delivery Status Notification / Failure report on a mail I sent. Normally in Domino these can be rather bland. They will give you an RFC error code, but not much else. I turned on all reporting and set it up to send all reports to an internal account in my mail system. I had ot given it much thought until today when I got my first one:

I just received a failure report from my LP device and it is really good (this is me being geeklily excited) . I have added an edited version further below. Please notice section [<2>] – it gives you the actual output from the rejecting mail server. As I mentioned before, Domino will usually just give you a RFC code and a generic line but this is really helpful. It shows that even thoughs I went by the book, I did not take care of all details – I never updated my external internet DNS with the name for my Lotus Protector device. Somewhat embarrassing, but with the help of clear error messages like this I can actually deal with it right away.

Here is the actual (edited) message:
