Why don't you just Email the user and ask them to attach their ID in an Email ? - why do you you want to automate this task ? Just ask the user to send it to you. It's not very time consuming. Everybody else in the world does it this way.

Here is another way to do it though. If your users have a private share on a seperate server (file server) put their Notes data directory there and update their INI file so that this directory is always their Notes data directory. This means that as a LAN administrator - you have access to their files and it also means that they can log on from anywhere and still get to use their own notes desktop. All you have to do is make some subtle changes to the logon script. I have more info on this if you are interested. It doesn't work for totally mobile users of course.

From the 4.0 release notes to setup an escrow account (which is the term for getting copies of ids):

1.      If you do not have a valid Address Book Person entry that includes a public key, you must create one.  This ensures that you can receive encrypted mail.

2.      Edit your Person entry and add "Escrow Agent" to the list of names in the User Name field in your Person record.  "Escrow Agent" is a special name that does not change among translated or localized versions of Notes; always use this name to enable an Escrow Agent.  

After you identify the Escrow Agent in the Public Address Book, the New User, New Server, and New Certifier functions in the Notes Administration user interface will attach and mail each new ID file and its password in an encrypted form to the Escrow Agent.
