Set Up the Connection to the Notes Server

The first step in configuring the connector is to specify the Lotus Notes/Domino server to which the Notes connector will connect.

Important   Before you can establish a connection to the Lotus Notes/Domino server, you must install a Notes client on the Exchange server.

To set up the connection to the Lotus Notes/Domino server:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Navigate to Connectors.


    1. Connectors
  3. Right-click Connector for Lotus Notes (server_name), and then click Properties.
  4. On the General tab, in Notes Server, type the full name of the Lotus Notes/Domino server to which you want the connector to connect. Use the Notes server/Notes organization convention.
  5. Verify that Notes INI file location displays the full path and file name of the Notes.ini file. If you need to designate a different location, click Modify.
  6. Verify that Connector Mailbox displays the name of the connector's primary mail file, If you used a different name for the connector mailbox, type the new name in the text box.
  7. In Polling interval, type a new value or accept the default of 15. The polling interval specifies how often, in seconds, the connector checks its primary mail file ( for messages to be delivered to Exchange recipients.
  8. Verify that Notes Server language displays the operating language of the connected Lotus Notes/Domino server. The server language is used for messages that the connector inserts into a message (for example, an explanation of a non-delivery report).
