Configuring alternate name support in iNotes

An alternate name is helpful when a user wants to use his or her native language and character set to type, display, and look up names. For example, users can type a name in a native language and character set when sending mail. A user's primary name is recognizable to an international audience; an alternate name is recognizable to the user's native language.

About this task

By default, HCL iNotes® allows users to view alternate names but not in any language other than English. You can change iNotes to allow users to send and view alternate names in their own native language.

Note: Before a user can use an alternate name for a primary name, you must register and certify the alternate name.
