How would I go about identifying this - is it a feature in 6.5+ or something, or should I use designer to include a column which detects this and shows an icon or something?  If it is the latter - please give pointers on the formula to use.

That would give me three columns with a lot of stuff in each.  I just want an indication whether I am in to, cc, or bcc.

So I was thinking more along the lines of one column, with
@if(I am in to; icon1; I am in cc; icon2; icon3)
kind of thing.

Complication is "I" could be part of a group, which is in to: etc.

Ok, no problem.

create a column and in the column properties, enable display as icons.

and in the formula:
U can change the no's upto 99 for icons.
@If(SendTo<>"";55;CopyTo<>"";56;57)

The code will give value 55 as long as SendTo is not empty - which is practically always.  Just checking whether the field is empty does not work.  

I need some way to check if the mail is addressed to ME in to, cc or bcc.  i.e., "I" or "Username" is a member of SendTo, ...  Problem is the mail can be addressed to me from Notes or Internet, or could be addressed to a group I belong to etc.

So far here is what I have for the hidden column:

tempName := @Name([CN]; @UserName);
tempName := "*" + @ReplaceSubstring(tempName; " "; "*") + "*";
@If(@Matches(SendTo; tempName); 148; @Matches(CopyTo; tempName); 159; 0)

This works for me, and some others, as most of our internet email ids are FirstName.LastName@..., however it does not work for groups, and for those people whose middle names are in CN.

If you have 6.0x or 6.5x, just use the OpenNTF Mail Experience template.  It includes an indicator to show how you were designated recipient.

@username if used in view column formulas gives unpredictable results,. It can be used "shared, private on first use"

Checked the OpenNTF template - uses DbfTitle, which is OK, and modified the internet address conditions.  Works fine.  While I probably wont use the entire template, (some things dont seem to be working right), this column was useful. Thanks.

If something doesn't work right in the template, let me know!  We'll get it fixed in a jiffy!

or, you can correct it and post the correction for template inclusion.
