Integrating IBM/Notes Archives with Outlook

While most of our clients use Dcom to archive their Notes Domino applications, a number of our clients also use Dcom to archive legacy email. Yes, they could move these archives to their new O365 platform, but that comes at a higher cost, increased project time, and increased storage requirements. An alternative is to convert these archives to local PST file, but in doing that you’ve lost the ability to search these PST files globally.

Notes Email is just another application to Dcom. And because Dcom can easily be integrated into outlook, users can have searchable, sortable access to both archived email and archived Lotus Notes/Domino application databases directly within their outlook client.

Here’s how simple it is to add a Dcom view to Outlook.

1. Open Outlook.
2. Right click on your inbox and select New Folder
3. Name it DCOM
4. Right click on DCOM and select Properties
5. Edit the properties name and put in your DCOM server address
a. https://<<DCOMSERVER>>
6. Save it.

You will now have a DCOM link in Outlook and can now access your archived email and Domino/Notes applications from outlook.

Using DCOM you can search, filter, sort archived email and database applications from either the Dcom Web Interface or Outlook.

What are you doing with your Legacy Notes Data? Maybe it’s time to take a closer look at the number one archiving solution for IBM Lotus Notes mail and applications – Dcom.
