How to implement a Notes Mail portlet in WPS (WebSphere Portal Server)

that is able to access user mail database with 'automagic' configuration

By making some lookups in the Domino Directory, we can enhance Notes mail portlet for 'automagic' user attributes configuration.

"automagic" Notes mail portlet

- relies on the Domino Directory entry for user, no restrictions on mail server DNS domain, template... - reduced user definitions for portal administrator : no need to specify each user mail server or mail file. - Single Sign-On : the userid is directly taken from the portal context. - After initial lookup, 'caching' of user attributes on the portal.

"Automagic NotesMail Portlet" in action

* Client sends a request to WPS to read his Notes mail
* WPS calls the "Automagic NotesMail Portlet" to retrieve the user's mail
* "Automagic NotesMail Portlet" calls the Domino Directory to get the

information about the user's mail server IP address, mail file and mail format

(Notes or iNotes)
* "Automagic NotesMail Portlet" creates an iFrame in the user's browser and

make it call directly the Domino Mail Server web interface with the user's

parameters requested in point 2.
