No worries AJ. I would like to reiterate that. Pretty much everyone uses AD. Its a fact we have to live with...

Sorry Folks - I am on so many mailing lists. I probably should have
looked twice and tailored this for an iSeries audience.
Sometimes I jot off a solution in email - and only in hind sight realize
it may have come off a bit terse. My apologies

That being said - I think it is fair to say that the majority of
environments now have Microsoft as their NOS.
I also think that we as Domino users should recognize where it is in our
best interest to provide solutions. It has been an inclination
in the Domino world to use the Tool to do everything - maybe we should
consider off-loading some projects to a more appropriate
domain - literally and figuratively.

Of course this solution wont apply to those environments that dont use
Novell or AD (presuamably very few of those left)
You should exploit the LAN/NOS people as they are typically at the front
end of the employee provisioning process. And
typically have dedicated staff for account creation. You direct the task
of acquring and pasting in pictures to that personnel.
Based on personal experience you DO NOT want to be involved in working
with the user community when personal pictures
are the issue...
"I hate my picture, can you use this picture instead",
"I am contacting a lawyer, that is sexual harrasment to have my picture
available"
"I love my picture can I have more copies"
" That wierd guy in finance printed out my picture and has it hanging from
his desk..."

Once the pictures are in a LDAP accessible domain like AD or NDIS. You
cna become a consumer and paste in the pictures
wherever and however you like. Your directory stays clean and compact.
You dont have to deal with cropping/resizing pictures

"If you are like the rest of the world you probably already have either an
ADAM server established in your AD environment."

aj,

1) If "AD" stands for Active Directory and you think we are all
running it, then I suspect you are wrong. Why would be people running
Domino on iSeries be using Active Directory?
2) It might be that you sentence will make sense depending on the
other option, but you didn't follow "either an ADAM server
established in your AD environment." with an "or". Or what?

There is a defined attribute for picture in the schema - just for what
you
described. (Photo and JpegPhoto are both defined)
If you are like the rest of the world you probably already have either an
ADAM server established in your AD environment.
You could have the Network / Physical security folks add the pictures
they used for badges to the existing entry
then you could use a URL in your Signature to point to the picture. THis
is good becasue photos wont be sent outside of your local domain.
The user can activate/deactivate there sig as appropriate

Re: Customized letterhead






Robert,

As I understand it, the whole point of this is for a company to be
able to have a person's picture in his/her person document in the
Domino directory. It would be rather useless if it weren't.

While the Personal Name and Address Book template and the Server Name
and Address Book (Domino Directory) templates aren't the same for
obvious reasons, the person form in each have to be pretty similar in
order for the view action "Copy To Personal Address Book" in the
Domino Directory to work.

At 09:47 AM 11/30/2007, you wrote:
We're not on 8 yet, but the question I have is, does the directory
template(Domino Directory) have the placeholder for the picture or just
the
personal address book template(Contacts) ?

The Contacts template and the Directory template are not the same...

Why is this bad news? The example was from a personal address book,
but as I stated, in most cases these will be found in the Domino
Directory, not a personal address book.

I discourage copying our companies address book to your personal

book. Even just the entries from our department. Too often have I
seen
changes (name changes, etc) not get propagated. I am willing to put
up
with the hassle of having to reach into my wallet for list of
departmental
employees versus scrolling through my large contact list in my Treo.

sync my Treo with Notes.)

Re: Customized letterhead






The picture in the link is a personal address book, but you can add a
photograph to a contact in either one. I would imagine that most of
the contacts containing pictures in a local address book would simply
be contacts copied from the Domino Directory, given that most
endusers aren't going to go to the trouble of adding a picture to a
contact in their personal address book.

Re: Customized letterhead






When your company rolls out Notes/Domino R8, your management will
have the option to add a photograph to each person's contact record
in the Lotus Notes Name and Address book (directory). Here's the

Re: Customized letterhead






I sent my response before I saw Walter's response. Up to that
point,
it appeared to me that you wanted to include a picture for all
email,
including Internet email.

Even given that, if you added your picture to your letterhead at
any
company that I've worked for, you would catch so much grief from
your
co-workers that eventually you'd find yourself removing it. Maybe
your company's different.

At 02:46 PM 11/29/2007, you wrote:
Timothy,

Why should a picture take up any more space than the "Buck
Rodgers"
logo,
etc?

I think the answer is that the letterhead is not sent with the
email.
Apparently there's some simple text in the memo that says which
letterhead
to use. Then it displays an image based on the recipients mail
file.
As
Walter said, if I want my recipients to see my picture in the
letterhead
then I better modify the mail7.ntf (or other templates as
necessary)
and
apply those templates to all mail files on the server. Based
on
that
information, I think I'll pass.

On a related note, when I pull up my contact list in Sametime
Connect
Client and start a chat with someone, I see something which
looks
like
a
generic shading of a picture. How do I populate that picture
with a
picture of that contact?
