Reccomendations: Lotus Notes Mail Server Data - Convert to PST RRS feed

  • Question

  • Need some recommendations for export to PST of Notes mail data and local archives > PST.

    I'm aware of the Quest offerings and have used QNME in previous migrations, however this particular migration warrants the export of all Source data to PST only  - without any coexistence etc.

     

    IF anyone can reccomend offerings outside of Quest i'd like to hear experiences.

     

    TIA.

  • We've agreed to take a dump of the Domino data in flat file and we'll use the QNME offline.  It has to be done quickly and imported quickly at the Exchange end.

     

    Thanks all.

  • Try this, free solution but can convert Notes archive to PST, however the process is not straight forward. You need to setup a dummy exchange 2007 server. Its fine if you want to save the tool cost. For the process please refer to the release notes or white paper.

  • Yes, you can follow v-beta’s suggestion to do that (move to Exchange 2007, then export to pst ). If you also need local archives convert to pst , you need import emails( in local archives) to your mailbox on Lotus Note before move to Exchange 2007.

     

    Maybe you also can use Outlook to connect Lotus Note Mail Server, download all emails to local, and use Outlook to export all the emails to pst.

     

    Using Outlook 2010 with Lotus Notes Domino Server?

  • Thanks for the reply guys.

    Unfortunately this is an acquisition.  The users moving out of the company need their mail data to go into Exchange 2010, but we have no access to the Source Domino server with any Tools/Agents or other interactions.

    The only way I see this happening is to export the data as Notes format (NSF) and then crunch the data to PST offline using a third party tool.  I know the Quest QNME does this for ONLINE mail but not sure if it does it offline also.  Need to go ask that question.  (Quest is expensive for only this type of use, and you really buy it for the coexistence piece.)   Not that cost is an issue here, but I had wondered if there were other options.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    If you don't have any requirements for being able to reply on the "exported" mails, then you can use IMAP/POP together with Outlook and export them from Domino into a pst file etc.

  • Hello again

     

    Anyone have any idea what the average conversion rate is of a Lotus Notes NSF to PST, using Quest Notes Migrator for Exchange?

     

    Anyone have any idea what the througput is of a PST import to Exchange 2010?

    e

    I realize there are many variables, just looking for a base number from experience.

  • Hi S_A_T,

    You can use Export Notes Software also because it is external software used for only Lotus notes to Outlook Migration. It can convert NSF file mail folder, calendar entries and contacts and many more. And its largest and main feature is 'Apply Filter' for emails , calendar and To-Do List. for more information:- http://www.export-notes.com/

  • Try a solution that converts all NSF data to PST than it will be better to choose an external application for such conversion. As these solutions are designs for user easiness and to reduce complexity. The software converts all NSF data to PST speed, accuracy, quality are the leverage advantage of the software.
