Let ? ? Cn, n = 2, be a domain with smooth connected boundary. If? is relatively compact, the Hartogs-Bochner theorem ensures that everyCR distribution on ?? has a holomorphic extension to ?. For unboundeddomains this extension property may fail, for example if ? contains a complex hypersurface. The main result in this paper tells that the extensionproperty holds if and only if the envelope of holomorphy of Cn\? is Cn.It seems that it is a first result in the literature which gives a geometriccharacterization of unbounded domains in Cnfor which the Hartogs phenomenon holds. Comparing this to earlier work by the first two authorsand Z. S lodkowski, one observes that the extension problem sensitively depends on a finer geometry of the contact of a complex hypersurface andthe boundary of the domain.
