Creating Person Documents from a Web Application

A Lotus Domino based online application asks users register, a person document is created for them and a password emailed to them.
Even if they get the username and password emailed to them instantly, it seems that Domino won't let them use it to log in for a minute or two.
How do I make it so that the username and password will work instantly, as users lose interest pretty quickly.

Application was written in release 6.5, but they are updating the server to 8.5 soon if that helps, although I don't want to re-write the entire app in XPAges... just yet!

Correct... Some page talk discuss the possibility to update some views in the NAB, but I wonder: would that update the server's cache as well?

Ah, now here's a more promising one: http://www.bruceelgort.com/blogs/be.nsf/plinks/BELT-7BJ2MT

Try that!

AFAIK you can't force the server to re-read the NAB, which is what it should do.

I suppose all you can do is delay sending the password...

So immediately create the Person document, put an action in a queue with a time of now + 3 minutes, and have an agent that runs every 3 or 5 minutes that picks up the actions due and sends mails.

How annoying...

Also related, if a user logs in, changes their password and continues surfing the site, after a few minutes the password changes 'goes through' and they are booted out and have to log in again. Anyway for them to not have to login again? Again app written in 6.5 and on a 6.5 server that should be upgraded to 8.5 soon!

Quite interesting actually, but I take it you wouldn't recommend changing details according to these as by the sounds of things they aren't going to offer much improvement.
