Hi,

1. My client opened his personal address book,
2. And he found 3 groups that he did not create it,
3. He asked me, why it is happened as he did not create any of the group
4. My questions: i) Can somebody explain the above, ii) The 2nd question: What is the different between the Personal Group and Global Group ?
5. Thank you

The 3 groups are there by Defalt for all users.
Personal address bok is used to put personal contacts and groups that only wil be used by that person.

Global public groups are used for anyone using Notes to send mail to groups that can be seen by everyone.

I hope this helps !

I actually only found 2 default groips
LocaDomainServers and OtherDomainServers

Neither of these should be used for mail grops, they are for Server entries only.

I hope this helps !

SysExpert,

1. If i can summarize your comments,
2. Personal Group is created by the person itself, right ?
3. Global group is created by domino administrator, right ?
4. You did not answer my original question; if number 2 is correct, why there are "some personal groups" in my clients' address book (as he did not create it; will it appear it automatically when a client creates the personal group ???)
5. Wait for your explanation.
6. Thanks.

Is this a new install ?

Was this computer used by someone else and Notes reinstalled  ?

In either case there could be leftovers in the Personal address book if a proper reinstall was not done.

If the person does not need any groups in the personal address book, simply delete them.

I would need to know the names of any groups to see if they are default groups or not.

I hope this helps !
