Short Description: Can be used to exclud addresses from recent contacts view
The notes.ini setting DPABRemoveRule= is the primary Recent Contacts filter list.
If the user wanted to filter out all the addresses from the widget company. All of those addresses contain a sub-string of widget. For example email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org etc. Setting DPABRemoveRule=widget will cause Notes to ignore all the widget addresses when creating Recent Contact entries. Now if the user also wanted Notes to ignore the addresses from the foobar company they would add foobar to the list separated by a comma. DPABRemoveRule=widget, foobar.
In addition to the DPABRemoveRule list, the user can set Notes.ini DPABRemoveRuleSetting=1.
When DPABRemoveRuleSetting=1 is set, the addresses containing sub-strings =exchange and /exchange will also be filtered out without being explicitly added to the list by the user.
DPABRemoveRule=string, string, string, ...
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
