  • Hi Alberto,

    Unfortunately, there is no free tool available for this, however you may try using below workaround which we used successfully to convert NSF to PST in one of the migrations couple of years back.

    Create a dummy/test Exchange server, install Transporter suite, import NSFs to Exchange 2010 dummy mailboxes and then export to PSTs using export-mailbox command.

  • I wrote an NSF to EML, MBOX, PST converter that relies on a COM/DDE to Notes to get the mail, the C API in nnotes.ddl to the ConvertMIME functionality as Lotus doesn't allow this through COM/DDE, the Microsoft cryptographic provider on the host machine to re-encrypt Notes encrypted mails with the users local certificate and the Microsoft Extended MAPI interface to create the mail in the PST and the IConverter function to import SMIME eml files into PST files.

    The code is at


    and the binary releases are at


    The code is in python and included in the src/ directory of the binary release. It runs as an unprivileged user and converted NSF files with about 10000 mails on my laptop in less than 30 minutes

  • Microsoft provides with an inbuilt facility named Microsoft Transport suite. This native solution is free of cost for users when they wanted to convert data from NSF to PST. This application is useful for converting Lotus Notes mailbox files to Outlook. 

    Cons: This application is of course free but has its own disadvantages which you must know if you are planning to use it. If you try using this method for making bulk data migration then you might come across an error message saying, “Maximum request length exceeded” or another message that might prompt on the screen would be “The message was migrated without the attachments

    The other free method to convert NSF to PST manually is stated in the blog here http://www.filerepairtools.com/tips/manually-convert-lotus-notes-nsf-to-pst/

Though you can try the free method described below. make sure you have the copy of nsf file stored in case something goes wrong during the process.
