Q&A


Q1. I've seen a phishing email where there is no link, but contains a phrase or news story that the user wants to google. When they do google the phrase/story, the top result is the phishing site.
A technique on checking if an email with unknown contents or phrases that wants you to google is to use Notes Client's preview pane, in this manner, you can peek on the content the mail without opening it. Then, you can select / click on an empty space on the body of the email, so you can view the page source of that mail, and from there, you can verify the content if they are legitimate.


Q2. Do you have any plans to add checking of PTR and SPF records to Domino?
Domino already has a setting to check PTR records, via the field " Verify connecting host name in DNS", but for the SPF record, since that record adds up additional layer of security BUT not a required record for mail servers to work that feature is still unavailable for Domino. For more information, refer to the following resources:


Q3. How can you prevent the ghosting of server rules?
Just disable the rule first, before deleting them. If you accidentally deleted a rule that is still enabled, the other way is to check the design of your configuration document. See the following technotes for details:


Q4. Is there a way to disable a rule once it has been ghosted?
By using your Domino Designer client and finding the formula for the rule that you accidentally deleted.
