We will be changing our e-mail addressing scheme for our e-mail users. Currently the e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be using the "validate Internet address" utility in the Domino Administrator to facilitate this change. The e-mail address will now be email@example.com. This naming scheme will also be changed for other users in other countries as well (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org). This appears to only change the e-mail address within the person document in the company's name and address book. How would this new e-mail naming convention be pushed to the users' location documents in their personal name and address book?
You could write a button into a Notes mail message, and then send this e-mail to all users. The code behind the button could find and fix any local settings you want, including the e-mail address in location documents.
You wrote, "You could write a button into a Notes mail message..."
Yes, you could, but that is unnecessary. Unless clients have added the notes.ini setting DisableDynConfigClient=1 they will get the Internet address updated in their location document automatically when they connect to their home server.
Thanks very much for pointing this out. We can all learn new things.
