Oh man oh man.

Lotus Notes is...uh...hmm...awful. I can't believe this program hasn't gone the way of Fortran.

Nevertheless, my office uses Notes. I think it's mostly for the global-meeting arrangements.

I desperately want to use Outlook. I'm stuck with Outlook Express on my company computer.

1.) Is there a way to translate my Notes e-mails to Outlook (i.e. export some kind of archive file along the lines of .pst) for importation into Outlook? Is Express significantly different from Outlook in an important aspect?
I don't care about my Meetings or Contacts or Folder arrangements. I just started with Notes, so these are easily re-created.

2.) I'd like to use OE as my primary, so I assume I have to frequently sync the two, likely every other hour or so. Is there an easy way/not too cumbersome to accomplish this, given 1.) is possible?

I would greatly appreciate any help.

From what I've read, only the 'paid for' Outlook has been successfully used with Lotus Notes for import/export of messages. Unfortunately, Outlook Express does not use a single 'pst' file for all data as Outlook does, using instead a separate 'dbx' file for each mail folder. Even where Outlook and Lotus can be made to understand each other, this is not without purchasing third-party conversion software, and it's not cheap since it's aimed at businesses.

If you wish to explore that avenue, look here: http://www.getfreeso...es2Outlook.html
