I got tired of people always asking me what their email address or web site address is so I have written a little application that will present the email address and web site address to the user when they run the application.
This requires RAD to be installed on your server, so if you have it, it is free. Send me an email if it is useful.
Clicking on the button will send an email to the user, summarizing the information.
Clicking on the button will open the web site belonging to the user.
This application assumes that you have chosen
in the Advanced Directory/Aliases Tab form OR your have entered an alias in the individual user info form.
No entries are made in the user info alias field
Then the user id is used along with the specified domain names for both email and web. (See below for how the domain names are entered)
There is at least one entry in the alias field
will pick up the first entry in the field and use it to yield
The first entry in the alias field contains an "@"symbol
will use the full address and not use the email domain.
Note: If there are any spaces in the user's UserID, the space will be replaced by the space character defined in the Advanced Directory/Aliases Tab form.
So a userid of "Jo Schmo" will have "Jo_Schmo" substituted before displaying the addresses.
