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 add a John Doe with an email address of j.doe@example.com, the iNotes Person document would normally contain the following fields, among others:

FullName: "John Doe"
Lastname: "Doe"
FirstName: "John"
InternetAddress: "j.doe@example.com"
MailAddress: "John Doe <j.doe@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: "j.doe@example.com"
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.
