Sean,

Thanks for your reply. I found a message in our notes log saying that our
notes server does not allow relaying for the domain of the destination. So I
should check if it's possible to set up notes to allow relaying from mails
originating from inside our network and not from mails coming from the
internet.

I you can help me with this, great ! otherwise, thanks for the advice !

Regards,
Bart
