Converting IBM Notes Data to Exchange MSG Files with Compliance Search

With Compliance Search, you can use the export feature to convert IBM Notes and Domino data to Microsoft Exchange MSG files. The converted MSG files can then be imported into an Exchange environment. Your administrator must enable an additional setting in the CommCell Console to enable this feature.

Exporting IBM Notes Data

By default, selecting an export format for IBM Notes and Domino data functions as follows:

  • Export to NSF: restores into one NSF file.
  • Export to PST: restores into one PST file. Use 64-bit Outlook to open the PST file.
  • Export to CAB: restores into multiple NSF files, which are combined into a zip file.
  • Export to HTML: restores to multiple HTML files.
  • Download: restores into multiple NSF files, which are combined into a zip file and downloaded to your computer.

Before You Begin

On the CommServe, add the ConverNsfToMsg additional setting as shown in the following table.
