Salient Features

All the features in the advanced Kernel for Lotus Notes to Outlook conversion software are briefly explained.

Exports Notes & Domino Server Files

Exports Notes & Domino Server Files The software migrates NSF files from both IBM Lotus Notes and Domino Server. In the case of Domino Server, users have the option to search for the Domino Server. Also, they can add one or more NSF files for migration.

Performs Manual or Automated Migration

Performs Manual or Automated Migration Users can perform either manual migration or automated migration (using a CSV file) to export multiple NSF mailboxes at a time. This bulk migration of Notes and Domino Server NSF files helps to save time and effort.

Saves in Outlook PST or Exchange Server

Saves in Outlook PST or Exchange Server It saves NSF files (Notes/Domino Server) in Outlook PST or Exchange Server. Users can also save the data in Text/HTML format or RTF format (Low Quality/Best Quality) with varying migration speeds.

Backup IBM SmartCloud Notes mailboxes

Backup HCL/IBM SmartCloud Notes mailboxes The tool facilitates secure and quick backup of IBM SmartCloud Notes NSF files. It can backup the mailboxes to PST and other destinations. The software provides separate process to connect with SmartCloud Notes.

Saves NSF Data in Multiple PST Files

Saves NSF Data in Multiple PST Files This tool has the option to save the NSF data in multiple PST files (of any desired size). So the output PST files are easy to manage and less vulnerable to corruption. They can be imported in any version of Outlook or Exchange Server.

Migrates NSF Mailbox Data Selectively

Migrates NSF Mailbox Data Selectively With this tool, users can filter mailbox data by a date range. Also, they can skip folder name 'All', skip hidden views and folders, include/exclude folders & select/unselect item types and mark all messages as read/unread before migration.

Migrates SmartCloud Notes to PST/Exchange Server

Migrates SmartCloud Notes to PST/Exchange Server The migration tool supports the migration of HCL SmartCloud Notes Server to two destinations namely Outlook PST file and Microsoft Exchange Server. There are separate processes to move NSF files into Exchange and Outlook. It requires minimum credentials to connect with Exchange.

Displays Live Migration Logs

Displays Live Migration Logs Once the migration process has started, the file items will get migrated one by one. The migration status of each NSF file can be viewed with the View Migration Logs option available in the tool.

Searches for Domino Servers

Searches for Domino Servers It provides two ways to connect with the Domino Server. One is by providing the Domino Server IP or name. The other is using Search Domino Server option which searches for the available Domino Servers in the network. So, it is easy to add Domino Servers.

Generates Preview for NSF File Items

Generates Preview for NSF File Items The software offers a preview of mailbox items when offline NSF files are added for conversion. The preview shows the exact item content along with its metadata like From, To, Cc, Bcc, Subject, etc. (It is to be noted that software has no preview facility for Domino Server NSF files.)

Moves Every NSF File Item

Moves Every NSF File Item The software migrates every healthy NSF mailbox item like emails, contacts, tasks, calendar, etc., in its original format without any modification. Along with emails, it migrates email fields (From, To, Cc, Bcc, etc.). It can also assign a domain name to email fields when only the display name is visible.

Saves with Original Hierarchy

Saves with Original Hierarchy While migrating the NSF file data to the Outlook PST format, the mailbox hierarchy remains unchanged. Each folder and sub-folder are maintained at its original place in the hierarchy. You can access the data after conversion instantly in Outlook or Exchange.
