Don’t just switch email clients, migrate all your data also

Well Lotus Notes and MS Outlook are both regarded as phenomenal email clients. Both have their own pros and cons. Within this confusion, many like to switch from Notes to Outlook or vice versa to have a better knowledge of both. Installing the new client is easy but what about your important emails in the other client. Suppose you wish to migrate from Lotus Notes to Outlook and now you prefer Outlook. You want to use it as your default mailing client and access everything from Outlook. For sure, you must have emails in Lotus Notes which are important for you and you would need them. If yes then transferring those mails in Outlook is a better idea than using both the email clients.

Well the most obvious question is how. Neither of them have any in-built tool to let you migrate mails from another client and why would they include, it would prove detrimental to their respective business. But the solution is quite simple nowadays as proficient third party tools are available to convert each and every data among email clients. 
Lotus Notes uses NSF files to store all its data whereas outlook uses PST files. While a change from notes to outlook, the file extension does not remain compatible anymore and the earlier files can’t be accessed with the new server. Thus you need a convertor to successfully transform the NSF files to PST type and resolve this anomalous concern. Just have a look at the various features that these tools provide:

  • Efficiently converts emails, contacts, journals, appointments, tasks, notes,   attachments, images to .PST file
  • Most of them also convert Domino Server mailbox accounts
  • Even supports Unicode Character Conversion
  • Preserves original formatting after migration
  • Software keeps all meta data like sent and received date, attachments, to, cc, bcc, address
