When a contact is inserted on a BlackBerry device with a common name
(firstname, lastname combination) and an email address that matches an entry
in the Domino Directory of that BES, the resulting entry in a user’s iNotes
contacts is modified to reflect the Domino naming conventions. Supposing you
John Doe with an email address of
email@example.com, the iNotes
Person document would normally contain the following fields, among others:
FullName: "John Doe" Lastname: "Doe" FirstName: "John" InternetAddress: "firstname.lastname@example.org" MailAddress: "John Doe <email@example.com>" MailSystem: "5"
If the contact you add is a member of the Domino Directory, the result is amazingly different:
FullName: "CN=John Doe/OU=something/O=Corp" Lastname: "Doe" FirstName: "John" InternetAddress: "firstname.lastname@example.org" MailAddress: "CN=John Doe/OU=something/O=Corp" MailSystem: "1"
Note specifically the fields FullName, MailAddress and MailSystem. If I wanted Lotus–style distinguished names in my address book, I’d have added them that way. Stop playing stupid “magic” tricks.
