1. Implementation

The Squirrel server add-in is written completely in Java and is using the open source framework JAddin. The IBM Notes front-end is a pure IBM Notes application distributed on a single NSF database.

2. Email Document

The original body of the Internet mail will always be saved in the Notes document as a Notes MIME type item. All original MIME headers are preserved and saved in the Notes document.

3. Additional Notes Items

Before forwarding messages to IBM Domino, the following items are added to preserve the original fields from the Internet email message. These items may be used to process messages in the users in-box with agents or to create new views or additional columns.

Notes Item Value Description
$SquirrelVersion String  Squirrel program version (e.g. 1.0.0)
$SquirrelRecipient String  Original email recipient name (e.g. jsmith@gmail.com)
$SquirrelPostedDate DateTime  Date and time of the Squirrel message processing
$SquirrelHostname String  Internet host name of the mail server (e.g. imap.gmail.com)
$SquirrelProtocol String  Protocol used to retrieve the email messages (IMAPS, IMAP, POP3S or POP3)

4. Notes Delivered Time / Posted Time

Squirrel will set the Notes item PostedDate to the original date and time of the message. The Notes item DeliveredDate is set by the Domino router to the date and time when the message was actually processed by the router task (stored in the users mail database). If you want the user to see the original date and time of the message, you must change the formula of the Inbox folder column to show the PostedDate instead of the DeliveredDate.
