The Address Book provider

The Address Book provider provides access to the Domino® Directories.

The provider searches all name and address books on a server. To specify that the provider search additional Domino Directories when doing address lookups, set the NAMES= setting in the NOTES.INI file to include the file names of additional Domino Directories to search. Also, add the names of the Domino Directories for Options - Addressing during MAPI profile setup. Often, the notes.ini will not contain a NAMES= line. In that case, the default address book (names.nsf) will be used. If you add a NAMES line, do not leave out names.nsf if that is your main address book.

The Address Book provider searches the Domino Directory for recipients' names according to the order specified in the profile.

Any simple or extended MAPI client can use the Address Book provider to access a Domino Directory.
