Technote (FAQ)

This document applies only to the following language version(s):



How to display internet address of Notes users instead of traditional Notes hierarchical address ?


Users will see an additional menu under Preferences as "Show display names as internet address"

For this feature to work, the Notes Client, Domino Server & Mail database template should be upgraded with 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8

In Preferences → Mail → Basics → “Show display names as internet address” should be selected by user.

During type-ahead, the internet style addresses would be used for displaying names, followed by Notes hierarchical addresses in parenthesis.

In preview and opened document, the internet style addresses would be used for displaying names.

This feature is supported only if the 'Internet mail address' field is populated and 'Primary Names' is selected as "Default display name" in the Location document.

While composing mails, it will show up addresses in internet style format during type-ahead, but when Enter is pressed, it will populate the name in Notes address format as before.
