Too many people can access Domino database

I have a Domino database with Default and Anonymous access set to "No Access." I have several groups with varying levels of access. The security administrator now tells me that everyone on our intranet is able to access the database. But how is that possible when only a limited number of those people are members of one of the groups?

What I would do here is ask the security admin to show this to you in person. To verify that what the admin is saying is true, log on as someone who should not have access. If what the admin is saying is true, you have some digging to do. Perhaps one of the groups has a subgroup, which includes extra members you don't know about.
