APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Starting in release 8.5.3.200 Traveler will attempt to use SMIME
    encryption instead of Notes encryption when an encrypted email
    is sent from a device and both the sender and recipient have
    Internet certificates.  Currently, the recipient is unable to
    decrypt the received email.  Along with fixing this problem,
    this APAR will also change the default Traveler behavior to only
    use Notes encryption like previous releases.  Customers that
    want to use SMIME encryption will have to set a new Traveler
    configuration property in notes.ini.
    

Local fix

  • NA
    

Problem summary

  • SMIME encryption was mistakenly on by default.  Most devices can
    not handle this vs Domino mail encryption which they can handle.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Disabled SMIME and added NTS_SENDMAIL_ALLOW_SMIME=true|false
    notes.ini parameter for the very few customers interested in
    this.
    

Temporary fix
