IBM Notes – Enable Displaying Internet Addresses

A few days ago, I searched quite a while for a possibility to display internet addresses instead of Domino usernames in Notes clients via a policy setting. Although there is not a dedicated option in a “Setting” document which could be rolled out via policies, there is a new “notes.ini” setting:

$INETADDRESSFIXUP=1

Which allows to rollout this feature using a policy. This is described in the official article.

Before this “notes.ini” setting can take effect, you need to upgrade the Domino mail templates to the 9.0.1 FP8 version.

You can download the mailtemplates using the following URLs:

English

Multilingual

I like this new feature very much, it makes sense to implement it in an environment where you have a single Domino domain or OU, but many mail domains which were created by acquiring smaller companies. Or if you just want to make users who are more accustomed to Outlook happy. 🙂

  1. I wish that there were a formula or a NotesName method that would retrieve the internet address. I was able to write a function to do it, but you’d think there would be a piece of core code to handle it….
