Whenever a user changes to a new location in Notes that includes a different Notes ID, the client throws up this dialog
"This Notes Client supports multiple users.  To use your own private data, log into the operating system using your personal logon and relaunch Notes.  Do you wish to continue with 'Switch ID'?   No/Yes'
I see this message at least 5 times a day as I switch between IDs to support my customers and for test environments.
Given that the majority of users that are likely to wish to Switch IDs are advanced users or consultants, I would imagine that they know that there are alternative ways to achieve this functionality.  Therefore, please could we have a means to suppress this dialog - either via the Notes client preferences or using a checkbox on the dialog (Do not show this message again?).

I agree with the checkbox option to not show the dialog box again.
