How do you set the outgoing domain name in the SMTP MTA on a per user basis?

This technique, which can be used to host multiple domains provided you have unique names across all the domains, applies to the Lotus SMTP MTA 1.05 and higher:

You can edit the short name field in the user's Person document to include the domain name. For example, if your domain is "company.com", you can enter the user's name as "user@another.com" and the mail will be sent with that as a reply address.

To be able to receive mail from more than one domain, be sure to add the other domain to the Internet Domain Suffix field in the Global Domain document.
