Hi all,

We are having a problem with BlackBerry and Domino Mail server.
User using the blackberry device when search for username starting with 'C' or 'CN' in the "To" or "CC" or "BCC" field encountered the error "Lookup Failed" on their device. They don't have problem searching for anyother words for e.g. 'CA', 'DA', 'Be', etc.

I check the domino server log.nsf and found the following log entry.

Searching for 'C', 'CN', or 'CN=' is prohibited on ($Users) due to possible performance issues. Returning zero matches.

I understand the nature of the problem.

Does anyone know what is the fix to the problem.

Thanks in advance

Not off hand , but I would check to see if there is a notes.ini setting to get around this, or alternatively contact IBM.


I hope this helps !

I just tested and don't have a problem searching for c or CN entries but we use directory assistance. Only RIM or IBM would be able to tell if you that is the correct route for you to go.

Hi, as a test can you please enter the following into the notes.ini file on the BES and then restart Domino.

RIM_ALP_DONT_USE_USERS_VIEW=1

Hi,
The problem is possibily a bug with Domino and BES, where the character 'C' and 'CN' return too many matches  because they use the "($User)" view in the Public Address Book. This view has all the user name prefixed with 'CN'.
Any comments.

garycutri, can you provide details on RIM_ALP_DONT_USE_USERS_VIEW=1. I did not find any documentation.

garycutri, the posting at BlackBerry Technical Solution Center seem to make sense, however, I'm concerned with the statement

"Note: Non-Domino recipients will not be searched during a lookup after eliminating the ($Users) view search."

Does that mean it will not provide search results for users who have been just created for access web, etc. of it is for certificates that they are talking about.

Let me know your comments
