We have configured several Lotus Notes clients to work from a local replica while still on a Local Area Network connection (as described in an IBM Developer Works article or similar which I read a year or more ago and can no longer find.)
A new location document is copied from the Office (Network) location and named Office (Local). The mail file is set to use the local replica and mail addressing on the mail tab is set to server then local (I believe server then local was added in 7.x.) Server then local allows for a session to remain open to the server to poll for new mail and replicate. Mail is configured to be sent if one message is pending and replication is scheduled frequently throughout the day.
The people we have configured are also heavy users of a few mail-in databases.
When sending mail outbound from the group mailboxes, customers were getting delivery failures on replies as the internet from address was not getting set correctly as Domino was doing its best to formulate an internet address based on the global domain document.
Fix was to put the corporate mobile directory catalog on the client and make it a local address book so name lookup would occur and find the correct internet address when placing the message in the local router mail.box for delivery. Without the local directory catalog, lookup would fail on the Notes client, and the server router would do no further lookup to find the internet address and add it to the message.
