Domino Lotus Notes email “fix”

By default, Domino/Lotus has the sender set to null.

The issue can be resolved by changing the configuration settings for “Reverse-path for forwarded mail” found in the Domino server’s Configuration Settings (Router/SMTP > Restrictions and Controls > Delivery Controls)

By default, this is set to “Set reverse-path to null”. This means any time a message is forwarded by a Client side mail rule the Mail From address will be null/blank. We can set this field to “Preserve existing value”. This will use the original sender’s email address as the Mail From field:

After making this change, save the configuration document and restart the router task (“restart task router”).
