Outlook 2002 Connector works fine with Lotus Domino R6


Stephane Rosa


Just in case anybody wonders, the Microsoft Outlook 2002 Connector for Lotus
Notes works fine
against a Domino server in R6. At least it is not worse than with R5... As
well, having the Notes
Client R6 installed is not a problem for the connector, the installation is
easy. Make sure to :
1) Open the Notes Client and Log in.
2) Install a fresh Outlook 2002, do NOT run it.
3) Install the Connector, it will ask a few questions, find the
<user>.ini/notes.ini file.
4) Open Outlook, you get your mail calendar. It will take a while to sync
the first time and it's a cpu hog. Go grab a coffee and read newspaper...

- I'm still getting a CPU hog between 50-80% peaking every 2 seconds or so
while doing
nothing in Outlook.

- Pushing the Send/Receive button uses full cpu during 2-3 minutes while a
very slow progress
bar goes on. I used the MSOCLog debug logger and it turned out that the
connector is syncing
the whole nine yards when you do this (ALL folders, address books,
calendar, tasks, notes)

- Responding/Accepting/Refusing meetings is a crappy functionality

Well, I'm still wondering if I'll stick using it, but I hate Notes so much

For those who have not upgraded your Notes Client to R6, DO IT NOW, it is
much much
better (but it is still notes...)
