Default Esoteric Architecture Question (Domino BES)

Please Login to Remove!

Here's the setup - three Domino 8.0.1 servers; server A holds all mail databases, server B runs BES 4.1.5, and server C is a messaging archive vault. Outbound SMTP from BES goes directly to an SMTP gateway (i.e. it's not routed thru server A).

The archiver works by forking a copy of messages in Domino's mail.box on server A into the vault.

Is it correct to assume that the only messages from BlackBerries it will NOT archive are SMS/MMS messages, because BES does not route them thru mail.box?

On a side note - do I have to route SMTP from BES thru server A or will the default policy of "keep a copy in sent folder" be sufficient?

BES does not route SMS / MMS / PIN or any 3rd party integrated BIS mailboxes (unless you force the mail through your BES).

Mail should be routing through your mail database server; no?

Technically, yes. But in your config, doesn't sound like outbound mail will log either.

Sufficient for what? If you want to log it in your vault app, you need to route via ServerA. I have the same on my setup - have to log all mail in and out. As such, BES does not send mail outbound - it routes it through my internal Domino server whic is running Journalling. (I could enable journalling on BES since it is R7 now, just haven't gotten round to reconfiguring everything).
If you're using a 3rd party app rather than native domino journalling to copy mail, then you need to route all mail through that server. Retaining a copy in the users sent view won't add it to the vault (I assume - not sure what product you are using, but they normally work on server mail.boxes, not sent views of mail nsfs)
