Lotus Notes/Outlook Conversion

Migrate Lotus Notes mailboxes and archives to Outlook

Free download! Read more about migration planning in our Email Migration White Paper.

Flexibility, speed, and reliability. We've spent ten years building these traits into Address Magic Enterprise (AME). Whether its 10GB mailboxes, encrypted files, standalone PST files, or centralized conversions, AME has done it before. In the MSExchange.org migration tool rankings, Address Magic Enterprise received over three times as many votes as any other product.

Home and small business users should see Address Magic Personal PLUS.


The best way to demonstrate the product's capabilities is with a short example. AME is command line based to simplify automation. Wizards are useful for getting started, but aren't a viable solution for migrating thousands of users.

Here's how to convert a user's address book to the Outlook Contacts folder on a client workstation:

C:\> addrload nsf pst

That's it. AME finds all of the files, finds the servers, finds the folders, the Notes ID file, the Outlook profile - it's all automatic.

Now we'll add the commands to convert the Notes archive file to a PST file, then the Domino mailbox and the calendar/tasks to the Exchange mailbox:

C:\> addrload -m nsf Archive.pst
C:\> addrload -mr nsf:server!! pst

The only prerequisites are Outlook and Lotus Notes. AME did not have to be installed or preconfigured to run the above commands.

Our support specialists will work with you during your evaluation to determine if this strategy works best for you, a server-based strategy, or some combination.
