How to convert lotus notes .nsf to outlook .pst?


  • Dear guru,


    I'm looking for the way to convert my notes email archive(.nsf) to outlook mail file. I found that there are some commercial 3rd party tool doing this job which is tooooo expensive for me. Is there any good way to convert .nsf to .pst or to move my mail data to outlook for FREE?


    I tried a method which uses localhost mail server to send notes mail to outlook locally by IMAP( but failed because my company blocked IMAP and POP3 incoming for security reason.


    I'm using lotus notes 7.0.2 and Outlook 2007. Does notes connector work for this problem?

  • Hi, you should be able to do the conversion anywhere using a local mercury email server. If the IMAP port is blocked by your firewall at work, you may want to take the nsf file home and do it there. I update the article yesterday to clarify a few things

  • I just went through a NSF to PST conversion, Domino 7 to Exchange 03, at a company for 25 people. The best (not easiest) way I found was the MS Outlook Connector for Domino.

    What I did was get everyone's ID files, and open Lotus Notes first, import their ID file, log in as them, then tie the connector in. Then open up in Outlook (using the MS Connector) all their mail would appear. After I checked all the email, contacts and calendars were there, I exported all information to a PST file.

    Then I'd go onto the users computer, setup there Exchange account in Outlook, and replace (or import) the PST with the one I had just exported, and it automatically populates the MS Exchange server with those messages.   We tried the MS Server tools to export Notes to Exchange but the calendars would not export correctly at all. So yes, this is may not be the best way with as its time consuming as alot of time goes to exporting/importing. But without any additional cost to IT (were small business) we saved a bundle and it worked 100%.

    Hope this helps anyone else out there.

    If I talk about free lotus notes migration apps then online records are showing that there are no free tools yet for lotus notes archive migration. Microsoft has a connecter suit (free) for same that allows migrating of configured notes database file to ms outlook. External tools are playing very important role here with perfection and satisfaction. Among all, Export Notes is a very low cost and feature-rich solution that assures accuracy of migrated data.  It allows all types of nsf (mail database.nsf, archive.nsf, names.nsf) file migration into ms outlook pst file as well as Exchange Server (business version) even the data is inside All Documents folder or encrypted.
