Problem Emailing Groups


iNotes (Domino Web Access)

Students may receive an error message when attempting to email a Group; i.e. COM2011

The error message may look like this:

Your message

 Subject: Re: Classified Ad site

was not delivered to:



 host mail2.downstate.edu[] said: 554 Mail   for com2011@downstate.edu rejected for policy reasons. (in reply to RCPT TO   command)

Outside of Domino Web Access or Lotus Notes client, you cannot write to these groups directly using an email address.
If you are using an internet email account, these groups; i.e. com2011@downstate.edu, does not exist.
Also, if you were using a 3rd party mail client, such as Outlook, Thunderbird or a Wirless device, the same issue applies. This is for security reasons.
You can only write to COM2011 from within iNotes, and it does not have to have @downstate.edu appended to the end when in use.
