    I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.

    I’m new to Lotus Notes so this post was helpful as the director asked for this to be done urgently 🙂

  5. Hi All,

    Being new on this blog, hope you will be indulgent.

    My issue is on Lotus Notes 8.5 : I have several Group of contacts. When email using the Group name it appears that everyone in the group receive my email with all email address constituying the Group.

    For exemple Groupe Name is GROUP1
    GROUP1 is composed by xxx@aol.com, identification@yahoo.com….
    I expect both to receive my email with GROUP1 as destanaries but they get xxx@aol.com, identification@yahoo.com

    How can I prevent this ?

    Best regards

  6. Hi Maurice, just to confirm:
    You have created a group name which includes two email addresses, both external addresses.

    When you send an email to the group name, both recipients receive the email but it shows the email was sent to the individual emails and not the group name.

    You want the recipients to see the group name so they can not see other email addresses.

    Is this correct?

    Sorry, just trying to get what the exact issue is. Thanks
