When a local personal address book group has the same name as a server address book group, the message only goes to the server based group, not the people in my local one. This happend even when I manually select the local group, not using type ahead. How can I tell Notes to use the personal one, not the server one?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Goto File, and select edit current location. Goto Mail tap, Recipient name type-ahead: is local then server, Recipient name lookup change to exhaustively check all address books. aand also mail addressing: local then server. Hope it help.

    We have used those settings but Notes always mails the recipients in the Server group. Thanks for your response.

    normally with the settings described by kelvinsw, you should be prompted for the group. Be sure to select the one from local. The selection could be complicated especially if the admins didn't set the domain in the server group. anyway, in the "Ambiguous name" dialgo bo, you should have a button details which could help you identify the proper group. If you're not prompted for the group to choose ... then there is a problem.

    Now here is the problem.... the real one. Type ahead and Recipient names lookup are not the same. You would think that they are but not. Each setting will override the other. Type ahead will look toward one address book (depends on the settings which one) and then normal addressbook look up will look at the other. This is a known issue (feature in Notes) and has been confusing people for a long time. This has been addressed in version 8 with recent address lookups etc. This should also be in later version of 7. I spent ages looking into this.... but best practice is "Do not have user and groups that match in the personal and NAB".
