Per default Lotus Notes create 4 location documents in the local names.nsf:


But the normal user need often only one ... the Online one.


The user choose accidentally "offline" as location document and after that he has various problems with his client. Or he choose Travel and all outgoing emails are held in the local mail.box. In both cases he called the HelpDesk and complained about problems with Lotus Notes.

Allow us to use a parameter in the setup.txt (See: "Applying scriptable setup" in the Admin Help DB ) where we can control which location documents will be created via first client start. I think this will solve a lot of problems which I see in various environments. Many from them have a modified mailfile where they delete all not needed location documents via lotus script during the mailfile open event (and re-create the needed ones). But I think such a option in the setup.txt is a better solution.

What I would like to see is something like:

As Options in the setup.txt. ...
Or maybe we can enlarge this option to some other options too...
the settings above would "stamp" our online location document with the needed server names.
