Field in Location docs being populated by a field in the Person doc

Hi, Debbie. I have upgraded one of our Domino servers to 6.0.1 and replicated the 6.x Domino directory to all other R5.0.8 servers in the domain, including the SMTP servers. Since doing this, users' Internet address field in their Location documents are being populated from the Internet address field from their Person document in the Domino directory.

If you change the Internet address field in the location document, when the PC next authenticates with their home server, the Location doc is then repopulated with the Internet Address field from the Person document.

I don't think this is a bad thing. However, there are several drawbacks to this and I have been able to get around all of these with the exception of friendly Internet addresses (i.e., "Firstname Lastname" internetaddress@domain.com), as opposed to simply internetaddress@domain.com).

Obviously you cannot put a "friendly" address in the Internet address field in the Person doc, so the Location doc gets overwritten with a non-friendly name during authentication.

My long-winded question is: How can you force this to be formatted as a "friendly" name when sending SMTP mail (i.e., name and address)?

There is a setting for this in the Global domain document, but this is for pre-R5.
There is a setting in the Server Configuration document for this. Go to the Mime Tab -- Advanced Outbound Messaging Options and the field is RFC822 phrase handling.
