Converting from Lotus Notes to Exchange

By mhamilton ·
I'm looking for good conversion tools and any input for pitfalls in this type of switchover. We really only have about a dozen real Lotus Notes users client wise. But all the pop3 users using outlook express or outlook are going to the Lotus server for email. Not that big of a user base. 150-300. I have seen companies that sell conversion software. Any good ones out there??? May split up the points on this one.

Thanks

KH

Search Microsoft web site, I'm sure Bill Gates has a solution. With the release of the latest ILOVEYOU viurs, I am shocked that anyone would want to migrate to exchange so soon.

The migration wizard that comes with exchange is a good utility. Pick up the Sybex book for Exchange 5.5. Great resource and it goes into different migration strategies.

I suggest that your migration plan allows the existing system to coexist with Exchange during cut-over. True, Exchange has built-in wizards and one of them will allow you to import your Notes users during Directory/Recipient creation. (When we migrated from DaVinci mail to Exchange, we exported to text file from DaVinci our users and let Exchange import the text file. Of course, you have to edit the text file to conform to Exchange settings or fields.)

If your POP3 users can save their personal (pst) folders, then it is better option, too. If their present Outlook version allows you to add Exchange mail service, then you dont have to remove or re-install Outlook. Once a user is set up to access Exchange, then you can remove the service that is responsible for Notes connection.

Hope this helps!
