[Thanks, TC]


By the way, I'd be interested in talking with anyone about an add-on I want to use with the Outlook connector to enhance rendering, give more flexibility to links, and that sort of thing. Something along the lines of our COEX! Links product (see http://www.GeniiSoft.com/showcase.nsf/COEXLinks for a sense of what I mean, even just the white paper) except for adding into this scenario. If anybody is interested, drip me a line at Ben (at) GeniiSoft.com and let me know.

If anyone is interested in using Outlook against Sametime for awareness also be sure to check out Instant TeamMessenger and the promotion we are running with IBM:


Also happy to speak with anyone about it.

I still absolutely don't see any sense in this tool compared to Domino Access for Outlook. An installed Lotus Notes Client is required on the same machine. Therefore a full Notes client license is required which is AFAIK more expensive than the Domino Access license.

So you have higher cost and more install effort for (probably) the same functionality. Who would use this?

My personal belief is that this tool makes the most sense when you want to move people off Domino. Use this as an interim step to get people used to Outlook, then when ready switch the backend.

This is the only reason I could see Microsoft doing this, otherwise it's not in their interest, and they're not a company to do anything to help other people's interests.
