How can a new domain name be pushed to users' location docs in their personal name and address books

We will be changing our e-mail addressing scheme for our e-mail users. Currently the e-mail address is first.last@acme.com. I will be using the "validate Internet address" utility in the Domino Administrator to facilitate this change. The e-mail address will now be first.last@us.acme.com. This naming scheme will also be changed for other users in other countries as well (e.g., first.last@uk.acme.com). 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.

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.

Chuck's response:
Thanks very much for pointing this out. We can all learn new things.
