Is there any way to control if a Forwarding Address in the person document s external or internal ?

This is what I would do if I am allowed to change the Domino Directory:

- Using the Forwarding address field in the Person Document: In this case there is no "default option" to control if the forwarding address is internal or external. However, if the company is open to customize the Domino Directory (maybe they are already doing it), we can add an input validation formula in the MailAddress field in the Person form to validate the forwarding address to be internal only.

I'd like to see an option where admins can allow (or not) to use external addresses in the Domino Directory, so we don't have to change the Domino Directory. It can be in the Server Document, so users of that server will be allowed or not to specify an external internetd addres as the Forwarding Address.
I just copied from my blog.. go there if you want to see the full situation. Http://

We do not allow users to change that field in the person document. Unfortunately, you did not cover mail rules, which, if we decide to act on, will require another change to the mail template to disallow. Yes, we are considering it.
