ECL problem

Hi all,

I have a problem with ECL. In past, we are using a powerful ID("NotesAgent/LTACON") to sign our database so that users will not get the ECL security prompts when accessing the database.

However, something happened and we cannot use that ID anymore. So we were thinking to use another ID ("AppsID/LTACON"). however, once we use this ID to sign our database design, the users will get ECL security alerts when they are accessing our new database, even though we have put the "AppsID" into server address book's Administration ECL.

I know there is a formula --> @RefreshECL, which can update the user's workstation ECL.
I have tried this formula by putting it into:
1) "QueryOpen" event of the Database Scripts
2) a button in a memo, and click by users
But both methods are totally not working, the "AppsID" entry doesn't get updated into users' workstation ECL.
And users still getting the ECL security alerts, unless they press "Trust Signer" button.

Is there any ways to "push" the updated Administration ECL from server address book to all my users workstation ECL?

Thanks very much in advance!

Use "Edit Administration ECL" from Domino Administrator (People & Groups view, Actions menu) to add your new "powerful user" to master ECL, then send a button to users containing


when they push the button everything should happen automagically...
I agree with krisjaniz, and also want to add that they can also go to File -> Preferences -> User Preferences -> Security Options and click the Refresh button and that will update their ECL from their home mail server.

Thanks krisianiz and others.
Oh yes, I got it right finally.

Well, my Administrator does not want me to send users a button to click on. So I need to put the formula into a common place where everyone will go into everyday, and mailbox is the ideal place.

Finally I realised that putting the formula into PostOpen event of mailbox doesn't work, but if you put it in PostOpen event of "Inbox", it works perfectly!

Thanks everyone!
