Notes.ini parameter to prevent local machine information added to Notes addresses without internet addresses during MIME conversion

If there is a user (ie. John Doe/Company) in the Domino Directory who does not have an internet address specified in their Person document (or you're converting a user that doesn't exist in the Domino Directory) then when messages sent to this user are converted to MIME the user name has several things done to it in order to try to form a valid internet address:

- Spaces are converted to underscores
- At signs are converted to percent signs
- In some cases a percent sign followed by the Domino domain in uppercase is appended
- An at sign followed by the IP domain of the machine the database resides on is added to the address

So in the above case 'John Doe/Company' might be translated to 'John_Doe/' in an effort to form a valid internet style address.

The address with the appended information can be in any of the headers that contains address information (From/To/Cc/Bcc/others). On the Notes document it is just the <Notes user name>@<Domino domain> but after calling doc.convertToMime() through the Java API it gets translated to <Notes user name with underscores replacing spaces>%<Domino domain>%<local server Domino domain>@<local machine IP address>

We would like to request for a notes.ini parameter that would prevent the last two things (appending the local Domino domain and local machine IP domain) from happening.
