I would like an alternative solution in prohibiting Notes users from using their id to access the Domino environment. The only solution I can think of is re-creating the account by having the system override the existing settings, do not distribute the user id, and reset the HTTP password. Are there any other options besides this one?

Yes, if I understand you right that you want to deny access to users who left the company: create a Deny group in the NAB and put those isers in there.

sjef_bosman is correct, that is why deny aces groups exist.

If you are reusing ID's generically, then this will not work.

You can also force a pasword change at login and not allow older passwords to work.

I hope this helps !

I want to only allow web access and not Notes client access.

Ah, that's it. Just don't create an ID-file for them automatically, but create only a Person document, and do that manually.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

I have no idea...

1) don't give them the ID-file
2) give the ID-file but give it a password that's unknown to them
3) block incoming port 1352 from their PC's

Well, we're no saints out here, we don't know everything. There may be tools (3rd party) that do what you want. But I don't know that. I'll ask someone else to visit this question, but, again, don't expect miracles: just another expert ;-))

Thanks!
