Domino 9.0.1 FP9 SMTP Issue

Daniel Nashed    

Last Friday a friend contacted me about a SMTP issue. I was able to reproduce the root cause of the issue but the emails I receive still look OK.
So it depends on your STMP configuration how much impact this issue has in your infrastructure with FP9.

In my environment I see in my SpamGeek log database that sender and recipient information contains some garbage chars at the beginning of the string.
This can cause that the header information might get corrupted. We don't know exactly how this happens and why it has different impact in different environments. The issue we see is cross platform (verified on Windows and Linux).

I have an open PMR since Friday escalated to L3 and I got a test hotfix today, which corrected the header. This confirmed that one of changes in FP9 caused this regression. But I don't know yet if this first fix was just a test fix that reverted the behavior or was a final fix.

So if you did not yet update your SMTP server to FP9, you should wait until this issue is fixed.

I will post an update once I have more details.

Traveler 9.0.1.20 Released
Sat, Nov 18th 2017 3:44p   Daniel Nashed
Traveler 9.0.1.20 has been released and I installed it already. As usual, if you are not waiting for an urgent open issue that is listed in the fix list, it might make sense to wait before installing a new version in production asap. I have installed it already befor the weekend and it looks good for my small environment. Beside the fixes listed below there is a new feature: Support for invitee availability search from Calendar on Exchange ActiveSync clients. Still trying to test it. N

VIEW_REBUILD_DIR changed to /dev/shm/view_rebuild
Tue, Nov 14th 2017 2:35p   Daniel Nashed
We just discovered an interesting configuration issue, which generates quite some logging and is a bit annoying. When you specify the view_rebuild_dir without the trailing slash / back-slash, the server will internally append the slash. But if you configured the view_rebuild_dir in the config document without the (back) slash the server will tell you every couple of minutes that the server changed the setting. This happens why the internal path is always stored with the trailing (back) sl

Domino on Linux Start Script 3.1.3 with changed way to request it
Mon, Oct 30th 2017 5:43a   Daniel Nashed
Just updated the start script to a new version with some minor changes. There was one issue with systemd on shutdown and I made a change in the way config files are used. Most of the new features are coming in either thru projects or when I want something for my own environment. I don't get much feedback or feature requests beside that. One change triggered by a project was how config files apply. We wanted to use the same configuration for all servers. But we wanted special settings f

Great news Notes Domino 10 and beyond
Wed, Oct 25th 2017 9:03p   Daniel Nashed
We got great news today. There will be a Notes & Domino 10 in 2018. And IBM also announced that with joined efforts with HCL Technologies they are working on a strategy for #Domino2025. This isn't a new partnership. IBM and HCL are already working together for Tivoli and Rational software. But is was still a big surprise today. Notes and Domino 9.0.1 FP10 is committed for 2017 and I am looking forward to hear more about the Notes & Domino Strategy planned for 2018 with Notes and D

Correctly Stopping a Traveler Server
Tue, Oct 24th 2017 2:02p   Daniel Nashed
This is not new but I ran into this a couple of times on customer site. Specially on a Traveler HA server this becomes important. Shutting down the Traveler servertask when the Domino server/service is stopped might lead to hang situations of the HTTP task. The better way would be to shutdown the Traveler servertask first. But even that might lead to undesired results. There is a special Traveler shutdown command "tell traveler shutdown" that can be used to let Traveler finish it's wor

Notes Client 9.0.1 FP9 F1 released
Sat, Oct 14th 2017 5:31p   Daniel Nashed
There is also a client IF1 for 9.0.1 FP9 which fixes one part of the issue that I reported. Depending on your configuration MIME messages sent did show up with different fonts on Notes clients. It happened in edit mode or when the embedded MIME browser was disabled. What has been fixed is that the IF1 client shows correct fronts. But earlier clients still shows different fonts (for example if you send a mail with sans serif it will show up in serif). I don't know if that can be fixed at

Domino 9.0.1 FP 9 IF2 available with important fixes
Fri, Oct 13th 2017 9:09a   Daniel Nashed
Two of the issues fixed in IF2 have been discussed before in my blog. But there are also two other critical issues fixed. Some of my customers reported DBMT and updall hangs which have been fixed with TDOOAREP8W. And the Private on first use folder issue also has been reported before. If you have installed 9.0.1 FP 9 you should update to IF2! -- Daniel JPAIAQ5SKW PANIC: DbMarkCorrupt! (d:notefileadmin4.nsf Dbiid: 0x3D91E116 0x3C07FE17) JVEKAQSGCC S

Installing C-API Applications on Linux
Wed, Oct 4th 2017 11:51a   Daniel Nashed
When installing binaries on Linux you have to be aware of the directory structure for the files installed in the opt directory. For installing a servertask the recommended way is to copy it to the Domino binary directory and create a start link. For myself I created a script that handles installation of servertasks and extension managers because I don't want to do those steps manually and my script comes with a wrapper script that benefits of sudo when installing binaries on my developmen
