Sun, Mar 11th 2012 3:22a Christian Petters Due to lack of time, another post in ‘shorthand’:
Outgoing SMTP messages are rejected by ISP or Gateway appliance with error “Invalid sender address”
RFC 5322 requires a from field in the header of every email. Emails that were sent from LotusScript* specifying an invalid entry for the Principal field, which caused Domino to create invalid message headers. The mandatory From field was missing.
