I'm going to re-build a very old Lotus Notes infrastructure coming from 4.x towards 8.5.

I'm trying to setup Domino so that all user names should be of a single string or the internet e-mail address.

For example the user "John Smith/ACME" should be in the whole system jsmith or .

I still get jsmith/ACME all around.

Where it is most annoying is in the NAB when creating a new message. Is there a way to get all addresses in uniform standard e-mail adress format at least in mail ? The mixup in the destination like "John Smith/ACME," confused the users.

That's how Domino handles domains, yes.

You can add a shortid (JSmith) or an email address ( as other acceptable usernames for a given user, but you'll still have the username/domain all over the place because that's the fully qualified name for your users in Domino.
