2-4: Set up the foreign SMTP document

The configuration settings for CMN are all on the Routing tab. All the settings on the other tabs are left at their respective defaults.

The Internet Domain field must be set to the name of the domain you will use for the Exchange users. Note that the Internet Domain value must begin with an asterisk as the first character of the name, with no dot—just an asterisk and then the FQDN.
The Domain name must be entered as CMNOUT, to match with a connection document that will be set up next.

2-5: Set up the server connection document

This Connection Document is used both for the Free/Busy Connector and for mail-routing.

On the Basics tab: Set the Connection type to SMTP, and the Source server is the server where the F/B request will originate.
To accommodate multiple mail servers, set up just one Server Connection document with the Source server set so that any of those servers can use this same document:
Source Domain (field appears in some but not all Domino versions): The Domino domain.
Connect via: Set to Direct connection.
Destination server: Can be any arbitrary name you want to assign.
Destination domain: Should be set to CMNOUT, to match the Domain name in the Foreign SMTP Document (set up in the preceding section). You can use some other value, but the Destination domain value here must match the Foreign SMTP Domain name. Note this is a "virtual domain," not a real domain. It doesn't really exist or go anywhere, but we use these fields to get Domino to match documents and route mail the way we want.
Set the SMTP MTA relay host to the IP address of the CMN Mail Connector.
On the Replication/Routing tab (for the same connection document): The Replication task should be Disabled, and the Routing task should be set to Mail Routing or SMTP Mail Routing, depending on the setup of your environment.
On the Schedule tab (for the same connection document): Set this connection document to be enabled 24 hours per day.

2-6: Add TCP/IP connection documents

In some environments, free/busy lookups may also require that you add TCP/IP Connection documents in both directions between the Domino servers housing mail databases (mailbox servers) and the Domino server running the QCalCon Domino Server Task.

To add TCP/IP connection documents: In Domino Admin, expand Configuration, expand Messaging and then click Connections. Add a connection, and then:

On the Basics tab:
Connection type: Local Area Network.
Source Server: name of the Domino server (in the Notes / Domino format, e.g. source_Notes_mail_database_server/DOMINODOMAIN).
Destination server: the Domino server hosting the QCalCon Domino Server Task (in the Notes / Domino format, e.g. target_Notes_QCalCon_server/DOMINODOMAIN).
Destination domain: DOMINODOMAIN of the server running the QCalCon Domino Server Task.
Optional network address: IP address of the destination server.
IMPORTANT: Remember that a TCP/IP Connection document is required in both directions. The Basics tab settings must be reversed on the other TCP/IP Connection document to define a connection in the other direction. The net result of this configuration with a Domino mail database server and the QCalCon Domino Server Task running on a separate Domino server is that you will have two TCP/IP Connection documents, with one document pair for each Domino mail database server.
On the Replication/Routing tab:
Routing task: Mail Routing.
Route at once if: 1 messages pending.
On the Schedule tab: Modify the settings on this tab to meet sending requirements (24 hours).
Click Save and Close.

Step 3: Configure the O365 side

To configure a non-hybrid Office 365 for CMN’s F/B Connector in a single/shared namespace environment:

Configure an Autodiscover website for CMN that is not Autodiscover.x.y—since that name is reserved for Outlook use. (In these examples, the "x.y" domain is the SMTP address to the right of the @ symbol.) The CMN website could be, for example, coexist.x.y. The CMN website must also have a matching certificate. (To obtain and install a matching certificate, see 4-2: Obtain and install web services certificates.)
Run the O365 Add-AvailabilityAddressSpace cmdlet for the CMN Autodiscover address ("coexist.x.y") configured in step 2 above.
In DNS, make sure the coexist domain has an A record pointing to CMN.
Test the configuration: Open a web browser and enter the URL ("https://coexist.x.y/autodiscover/autodiscover.xml") to verify that it resolves it correctly and without any certification errors.

CMN’s Free/Busy Connector can facilitate the flow of free/busy information among multiple subdomains supported by both the Exchange and Domino servers. To support this scenario, run the Add-AvailabilityAddress­Space cmdlet on O365 for each Domino SMTP domain supported.
