There is a technote,, which says Domino will recognize any user with a forwarding address as not using their calendar.
That's great, very nice.
However, in a mixed shop of Notes, Gmail, Exchange et al and when you are running DDm and monitoring notifications, every time the server starts up these errors propogate countless notificaitons....for no reason.
Please IBM recognize people need to use forwarding for a reason and stop the issuance of these error notifications like the one below:
SchedMgr: Error processing calendar profile document (NoteID: NT000010EA) in database mail\username.nsf: User's mail is being forwarded to another location
Or if someone has a simple way to fix this let me know.

"which says Domino will recognize any user with a forwarding address as not using their calendar. That's great, very nice."

There are scenarious where this assumption is wrong. So Domino should not only stop sending these messages but instead process these users' calendars normally.

Can you not use DDM/events to suppress the messages in your environment?

Alan, The message could be suppressed, however, as we migrate users we want to now who is still forwarding perhaps? Or when new people get registered we want to know they are correct is what we are using it for but it's bad design on IBM's part.

I still believe the messages are valid and should be issued, as are the ones issued for mail databases for users that are no longer in the NAB.
As for checking user configuration - I'd go to the NAB for verifying the use of forwarding. It's a lot easier to use a view in the NAB than search the logs.
