If you have a Directory Catalog in place and aggregate say your domains domino directory with an external directory you should be able to give the different directories an adjusted weighting, say 2 for domino directory and 1 for external directory.
The higher weighted entries would then be the primary suggestion when having ambiguous matches at a name lookup, e.g. when writing an email.
Maybe also an "internal" flag could be automatically populated when aggregation in dircat occurs. That flag is set when the entry is reachable via notes mail within the same / cross certified domain. This flag might be utilized in such things like workflow applications, where external names don't make any sense as suggestion.
Kind regards
