Re: lotus notes server ---- not a known tcp ip host


this sounds like a problem with your Notes server.

You can correct the problem by editing the Server document, under the Ports tab, Notes Network Ports subtab, and changing the value in the Net Address column from the DNS name of the server to the IP Address of the server instead.
