The following components have to be installed on each mail server within a Lotus Domino environment.
treeMailS Server Engine (Lotus Domino AddIn-Servertask)
The “treeMailS” server task is used to control treeMailS on a Lotus Domino mail server. It monitors all of the existing routing databases on a Lotus Domino mail server and executes the desired treeMailS/MFT actions (add signature, 4-eye principle, marketing templates, etc.) for the blocked mail documents (“DEAD” status) on the server. On each Lotus Domino domain you have to select one server as a treeMailS administration server. This server runs two instances of the treeMailS Server engine (administration process and signature process), while on the other mail servers only the signature process is necessary.
treeMailS Mail Blocker (Lotus Domino Hook Driver)
The mail blocker automatically stops all emails that are routed through MAIL.BOX databases (routing databases) of a Lotus Domino mail server (setting field “RoutingState” to “DEAD”). Then the “treeMailS” Server engine processes the blocked emails, executes the corresponding actions, and then releases them for IBM Domino routing again.
MAIL.BOXes (routing databases) have to be numbered consecutively (MAIL1.BOX, MAIL2.BOX, etc). Otherwise treeMailS stops after the end of a row.
The treeMailS mail blocker is compatible with the mail blockers from the following manufacturers:
- Group Technologies
treeMailS Configuration Database
The treeMailS Configuration database contains all of the configuration settings. The treeMailS Configuration database synchronizes itself automatically with the Lotus Domino address book. In other words, new users in the Lotus Domino address book are automatically added to the treeMailS Configuration database and, similarly, users deleted from the Lotus Domino address book are removed from the treeMailS Configuration database.
treeMailS Gateway Database
The treeMailS Gateway database is needed in particular for the 4-eye-principle within treeMailS. In addition, it controls different job documents sent by a treeMailS client.
treeMailS Log Database
The treeMailS Log database logs all of the actions performed by the treeMailS Server engine.
treeMailS / MFT Bridge Database
treeMailS / MFT Bridge database is the server based interface between Lotus Notes and Thru. All messages that will be sent by Lotus Notes over MFT will be transferred from this database to Thru. The treeMailS / MFT Bridge database is also responsible for single sign on (SSO) to Thru and sending the adapted e-mails to the recipients after the successful transfer of attachments to Thru. For load balancing reasons up to four treeMailS / MFT Bridges could be installed on a Lotus Domino mail server.
