I was snooping around in the Lotus Domino support knowledge base when I found this interesting IBM technote titled:
Using email address to identify users or group members for Web authentication
(reference # 1209955)
What?! I surely missed something. :-(
I tried this tip to enter my company mailbox:
and IT WORKS!
I thought it was NOT possible to use e-mail address as username during Domino web authentication: in fact over the years many users asked me to do that on the company website... I even thought about buying some third-party DSAPI filter for the Domino http server.
Some months/years ago I even read an interesting article (The View magazine) explaining a workaround to use user email address during web authentication, but it was done using LotusScript programming & HTML, no DSAPI filters or standard Domino settings.
But please, read the technote for important additional info about this (new?) feature.
How many of you already knew about this opportunity? Please, speak up.
For example I asked two up-to-date friends about that, but they confessed they were not aware of it.
