This does already exist in 8.5.3 for recent contacts but not for groups (nor regular contacts). Very handy if you need to mail to certain (often large) groups like for announcements, but don't want to take the risk to mail this group by mistake for non-announcements.

I asked this of the core team at Lotusphere98, '99, '00, '01. I'm still waiting.

It was slated to be included in Notes 5.5, which never got released...and instead we went to R6. I think it got lost in the shuffle and despite my asking, management at the time, instead, created the multiple Group Type field in the directory: Access Control List Only, Servers Only, Deny List Only, Mail Only, Multi-purpose. Yes, this was a help of course, but it still didn't address the underlying issue for having mail lists appear in type-ahead.

As I recall, it was a hot PMR for my customer at the time as well. Point is that I concur, this should exist.

Perhaps Mail only, Mail only - Administration, to have it excluded in type-ahead, or a check-box for Mail only, that can only be set when one has Manager rights to the Directory.

What I did as a work-around is to preface each of these special groups with a character construct that is unique and rarely if ever typed in the organization. Then, put the group name after it. e.g. _$%^!zZZZ2w$2 -- <group_name>; As the odds of someone typing an e-mail address beginning with an underscore character was quite slim there. Then I would send the note to myself with these groups in the BCC field.

That is just one way...not necessarily the most elegant, but it does work.
