Lookup fields are created within each signature and then mapped to a notes database.
The mapping is completed using views, keys, or fields within the email that is being processed by Crossware Mail Signature.
Under most circumstances you should not need to change these settings.
If your user information is not stored in the address book but in a separate database you can modify the setting in these documents to extract the lookup information from another database/view.
To create a new Lookup click the Action button 'New Lookup Configuration'.
This will create a "New Lookup Configuration Document".

Text List Separator
This setting controls how Text Lists are formatted when returned. By default, text lists will be on separate lines when inserted into the email.
When lookups are used in other lookups e.g. Formula a Carriage Return/Line Feed is not suitable. Therefore a different separator can be used.
Carriage Return/Line Feed
Each entry will be on a new line.
Text items will be separated by a colon.
Text items will be separated by a tab character.
If you edit the lookups within the esig.nsf database you should use the "Refresh All Documents" action to ensure that any configuration documents based on the document you are updating are updated.
You can test your lookups using the "Test Lookup" action. This will send an e-mail to yourself. This e-mail will be processed by the application as it passes through the Lotus Domino server and the lookup is evaluated.
