How to Convert Lotus Notes Mail File to Outlook Manually

Convert Lotus Notes Mail File to Outlook Manually

If you have switched from IBM Lotus Notes to Outlook, and want to access its email in Outlook, then this article will help you. Before, we tell you the process to “Convert Lotus Notes Mail File to Outlook Manually,” please ensure that you are technically sound. Plus, you should have both Lotus Notes and Outlook installed on the same or two different machines. In the case you cannot fulfill this requirement, we suggest you use a professional NSF to PST converter that has been specifically developed to convert Lotus Notes to Outlook mail file.
Let’s start the process.

Part 1 – To be performed in Lotus Notes

1. Start IBM Lotus Notes.
2. Select emails that you want to export and access in Outlook.
3. Go to File menu and select the Export option.
4. Choose a location to save the file that will be exported.
5. Give a name to the file.
6. Select the “Structured Text Format” option, and then click the Export button.
7. Select the required options and click the OK button.

A new file will be created at the desired location. Make a note of this location, as you will need this later in Part 3 of this tutorial.

Part 2 – To be performed technically

It is the most technical part of this tutorial, as now you have to convert the exported Structured Text Format file into a CSV file. You have to do this because Outlook cannot import the Structured Text Format file. You can do the conversion using a script that you may have skills to develop. And, in the case, you are not that technically sound, you may use a third-party converter to get this task done.

Part 3 – To be done in Outlook

Once you have converted the Structured Text Format file to CSV file, perform the below steps:

1. Start Outlook.
2. Select File > Open > Import.
3. Browse and select the CSV file that you have just converted.
4. Import the file.

After the import has been completed, you will be able to see all your Lotus Notes emails in MS Outlook.
