    result in no or partly mail sending without notifying the user
    doing the send.

Local fix

  • This issue is a particular case described in the Technote
    1153854.
    
    This issue was reported to Quality Engineering as SPR#
    EMMS2YMU3J and was found to be a software limitation.
    
    Workarounds:
    When a SendTo entry specifies a domain name, no initial
    validation of the entry is performed but the router still
    evaluates the SendTo field as usual.
    
    Workaround 1:
    Append the domain name to the end of the SendTo value, as in:
    
    Call doc.send(True, "Jane Doe/US/Widgets@Widgets")
    
    Additionally, if you want to have a duplicate entry in your
    Personal Address Book, copy the entry from the Domino Directory
    (People view --> highlight the person --> choose Edit --> Copy)
    and paste it into your Personal Address Book (People view -->
    choose Edit --> Paste). This will eliminate the error.
    
    Workaround 2:
    This is sample code to add the domain name automatically if an
    "ambiguous name" error occurs.
    
    NOTE: The code below is a sample script, provided to illustrate
    one way to approach this issue and is used at your own risk. In
    order for this example to perform as intended, the script must
    be laid out exactly as indicated below. Product Support cannot
    customize this script for specific environments or applications.
    
    Before the Send button, add the following:
    ...
    ...
    ...
    On Error 4294 goto AmbiguousError doc.send(True)
    ...
    ...
    ...
    Exit sub
    
    AmbiguousError:
    Set namesdb= session.getdatabase(db.server, "names.nsf")
    Set Persondoc=
    namesdb.getview("($Users)").getdocumentbykey(docmail.SendTo(0))
    docMail.SendTo = Persondoc.fullname(0)  & "@" &
    Persondoc.MailDomain(0)
    Call docMail.Send(True)
    Resume next
    End sub
    
    In this particulare case, customer has to programmatically
    add @org to all emails addresses
