I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Domino Administrator
Find the person in the "People" list
Choose Delete person

It will be removed from groups, reader and author lists in databases etc.

Then you can select to delete their mail file from their home and any other replica servers (maybe having archived a copy to a different drive if wanted first) and remove from directory immediately.

Then just leave it to it, or as the removing of names from fields etc. and mail file from other servers etc. is carried out by admin process which will work perioidcally you can do:


on the console of the server to kick this off.

If more than one server is involved the admin4.nsf and names.nsf databases will have to have replicated across to that server and adminp kick in on there.
