overload of methods/functions in Lotus Script

I make overload for any methods/functions using next approach. It is quite simple and useful from my point of view

Sub new(key As Variant)
Select Case Typename(key)
Case "STRING":
call newForString(key) or do code
call newForNotesDocument(key) or do code
call newForEmpty(key) or do code
End Select

EncryptOnSend, how can we send encrypted email even if "aim-user" does not have a key to read it?

I was facing with interesting problem, have to send encrypted email to user even if user does not have a key to open/read encrypted email. Let's say in case if I user does not have the key to read/open encrypted email I would like to send him just a message with confirmation that he received an email that was encrypted by userA. So, my main point is to catch users which do not have key to read/open encrypted emails in moment when I send these emails.
Right now Domino automatically UNencrypt emails for users which do not have a key to read/open them.
From help: EncryptOnSend property
To encrypt a document when mailed, this method looks for the public key of each recipient in the Domino Directory. If it cannot find a recipient's public key, the method sends an unencrypted copy of the document to that recipient. All other recipients receive an encrypted copy of the document.

How to disable autorunning SameTime in IBM Lotus Notes 8.5

After I installed LN 8.5 each time when I run LN8.5 the sametime run also. I don't like this because I don't use it. So if you want to disable it you should add/change variable in notes.ini
Please notice 2 variations of IM_DISABLED / IM_DISABLE, it depends of version of LN you have, so if one does not work for you, try another setting.
