Expanding the list of keywords in the field "Recipient name type-ahead:" with the possibility "Server then Local". Would avoid issues when users have the additional setting "Recipient name lookup" set to "Stop after first match" to get troubles with encrypting emails with wrong outdated keys of an person existing also in their Personal addressbook and Server addressbook.

This feature shipped with version 7.0.2.

I use Notes 8.0.1 and I´m unable to see this?!?!

Bastian, you have to be working from a local replica. Yeah, it doesn't make sense to me, either, but that's how it's implemented. I think Alan Lepofsky did a writeup about it.

Charles, here is the thread where you and I figured this out. It is in Notes 7.0.2+, mail has to be local...

The option in 7.0.2+ is for mail addressing (a different box) and only works if your mail file is local.

Having the type-ahead support Server then Local would be very useful regardless of mail file location.

I agree with @5

My users are complaining, when an email intended for an internal employee, initials are used as shortnames, is send to a recipient from the local address book.
