Mail Security for Domino


When SMSDOM is running, the Domino server crashes frequently on "nServer" with "PANIC: LookupHandle: handle out of range".



If you're running Symantec Mail Security for Domino (SMSDOM) version 8.0.5 or 8.0.6 on a Windows x64 server, please follow the steps below to resolve this issue by applying a patch file.

Please also note that this issue is resolved in the SMSDOM 8.0.7.

Note: These resolution steps only apply to Symantec Mail Security for Domino version 8.0.5 and 8.0.6 on 64-bit architectures.

  1. Download the extension library "nnem.dll" attached below.
  2. Stop the Domino server.
  3. Create a backup copy of the existing library "nnem.dll".
    The file is located generally under C:\Program Files\IBM\Lotus\Domino
  4. Replace the existing "nnem.dll" with the one you downloaded at step 1
  5. Start Domino server.
