Sametime in an Active Directory and Exchange environment.

This is for Sametime 8.0 on Domino 8.0 pointing to AD for authentication with an Exchange server.

When trying to get the meeting notifications to work, I initially recieved this error:
Dead Failure Reason:User Sametime Development/Lotus Notes Companion Products (Sametime Development/Lotus Notes Companion Products@Domain) not listed in Domino Directory

After enabling smtpclientdebug=1, I was seeing that the error was actually similar to this: Meeting notification email to moderator

Specifically, the error is: SMTPClient: Error parsing from address

The key part of this error is that it's an error parsing from address. To make a long story short, I ended up having to open STConf.nsf in Domino Designer, then opening the the "sendnotification email" script library. In the sub used for notifications, I had to modify what was being used for the sender's address.

One note is that you should create a Sametime Admin account on the Domino server as well as on the Exchange server. In Exchange, you could create a Sametime Admin group to receive the replies if you would like. Here's what I changed to not only solve the issue above, but to also make the Outlook Client display a name in the Inbox folder.

Look for the following If loop and replace it with the following code down to the line that is: Set header = body.CreateHeader("Sender")

If (sendEmailFrom = "") Then
'sendEmailFrom = meetingDoc.STCreator(0)
sendEmailFrom = "sametime.admin@exchangedomain.com"
End If

' The following three are the best way to ensure that the client renders the
' sender's address correctly. When modifying the principal field, Domino must
' be able to resolve the address in the local directory (from my understanding and
' prior troubleshooting).
doc.From = "Sametime Admin"
doc.Principal = "Sametime Admin"
doc.replyto = "Sametime Admin"
' You can just use the internet address for the following sender fields.
doc.SendFrom = sendEmailFrom
doc.DisplaySent = sendEmailFrom
doc.AltFrom = sendEmailFrom
doc.INetFrom = sendEmailFrom
doc.tmpDisplayFrom_Preview = sendEmailFrom
doc.tmpDisplayFrom_NoLogo = sendEmailFrom
doc.tmpDisplaySentBy = sendEmailFrom

Do guitarists really play Guitar Hero?

So I was walking around BestBuy tonight and decided to test drive one of the guitar hero games. I just don't get it. Maybe it's because I'm a guitarist? I played Black Hole Sun (on Rock Band) on medium and got boo'd off the stage rather quickly. I guess if I have spare time to play an instrument I'll just pick up one of my guitars... ;)


While I was in BestBuy, I picked up a Dynex headphone adapter for my iPhone and a somewhat decent set of earbud headphones. I figure I can have some decent phones for the bus ride to Lotusphere and walking around (if needed...) :)

LOL - Edwards is on CNN compaining about the 99.5%+ of Americans who haven't voted yet (and assuming that they should vote for him...) and then talking about a woman who couldn't get a liver transplant in time. Could that be because slick ambulance chasers like Edwards have completely drove up insurance prices because of his antics and huge lawsuits?

Well... Ummm... Happy New Year!

So, I figure that a week into the year I should at least post something! As you've probably seen from Nathan, Tim, and Mike's blogs, things are pretty fun at Lotus 911 now preparing for Lotusphere 2008... But you'll hear more about that later.

Some random thoughts? Interesting watching the SEC dominating the bowls! If LSU hangs on, then I think the SEC will be 6-1 in bowls this year.

NH primary should be interesting. Will we see another Obama/Huckabee showing? Guess we'll know in 24 hours...
