Many are transferring their platform from IBM Notes to Outlook. Why is it so? What makes Outlook so attracted platform? Let us have a small discussion about it.
Lotus Notes desktop email client by IBM is facing strategic decrease in the number of users. Though IBM Notes are highly powerful and provides tight security, they are so expensive and complex to use. This makes most of the business organizations to shift to Outlook, a simple and affordable client by Microsoft. Outlook also holds emails, contacts, calendars etc. as that of Lotus Notes. But, the noted difference is with the file format supported by these platforms. Lotus Notes supports NSF file and Outlook goes with PST file format; both entirely different.
At times, users faces problem with the emails stored in Lotus Notes. After the shift to Outlook, if users need to get the emails in Outlook then, it puts you in trouble. Since the file format are not compatible with each other user will have to convert the NSF emails to PST.
