Old 4 Comments on Lotus Notes to Outlook Conversion – Product Review 366

NSF to PST Converter basic facility is migration of data from NSF files to PST files. It is an elemental need after migration from Lotus Notes to MS Outlook so as to access the old stuff. But is this software capable enough to fulfill this basic need? Interestingly it not only fulfills the basic need, it also serves for much higher grade. Software is faceted with multiple useful options which can be utilized as per your choice in order to perform a fine Lotus Notes to Outlook conversion. The main concern of conversion of data is excellently handled and dealt with accuracy without any manipulation done on the original NSF file. Software focuses on each and every element of the Lotus Notes email file like emails, calendars, notes, tasks, journals, etc. It has a smart separate provision for the names.nsf file for contacts migration. The most amazing feature delivered by the software overall is its capability to focus on each and every minute details. It covers all the categories and aspects of the NSF file data.

Migrates All the Data of NSF File

  • Metadata is not compromised while exporting emails from the NSF to PST file. This includes to, cc, bcc, from, sent & receive dates and times completely are migrated along with the emails.
  • Not only Metadata, it also converts all the associated attachments along with emails, associated details like photos with contacts, journals, tasks, appointments of calendars data to PST file.
  • Very peculiar details like; Formatting of email with text style, inline images present in the email body, color, fonts, hyper links, signatures etc too are replicated in new PST file as such.
  • Attachments associated with emails of various types and formats can be migrated.
  • There is also option to preserve the HTML formatting and internet header of the emails.
  • In all, tool migrates every possible thing to PST file so that users need not to look for NSF file again and again for basic detail.

Some More Interesting Facts of Tool:

    • Names.nsf: There is some extra provision for the contacts of NSF file that is names.nsf file. Unlike other software tools, this tool loads both files .nsf and names.nsf providing the path of file location and software will either create separate PST file or migrate contacts to the same PST files along with the emails.

    • Encryption: It is difficult to migrate the encrypted emails but this tool successfully migrates those email messages which are encrypted by Lotus Notes encryption. This encryption option can be checked by in advance settings.

  • No Size Issue: Software has an approach to work for very large NSF file. This is because software will create another PST file if the size of PST file (20 GB) exceeds. This is done automatically for saving the left data in another PST file.

Basic Features of Software:

  • Lotus Notes to Outlook conversion tool supports all NSF files created by versions of Lotus Notes 8.5, 8.0, 7.5, 7.0, 6.5, 6.0, 5.5, & 5.0 using NSF to PST Converter.
  • Conversion can be done to both type of PST files ANSI and UNICODE PST as per user’s need.
  • All the categories are covered including contacts, emails, calendars, etc
  • Folder hierarchy is maintained and thus no confusion is created to handle Lotus Notes data in MS Outlook
  • Various filters provided for date wise export or excluding certain data store
  • Option to export all the data from All Document folder.
  • Remove Message Encryption for easy access in MS Outlook
  • Advance settings to include or exclude various data types

Overall Performance of Export Notes:

With so many functions at same interface, software might appear complex but it is not. The interface guides you well with what to do and how that function works. Software also has “Help Section” to solve issues if any occurs. Moreover additional service “Technical Support” works for you all the time. I will recommend you to divide functions in sections and perform the Lotus Notes to Outlook conversion, so that the whole method will become easy.

Talking about conversion speed, it is average and depends on the NSF file size. However there will not be any break-down in the process of conversion and the process goes very smoothly without bothering you much. But accuracy is commendable, there is no data fluctuation or loss of data and all the details are converted assertively.
I will rate this tool as 4.8/5 without any drawbacks.
