openBC now with Lotus Notes support

by Volker Weber


openBC announced today that they are supporting Lotus Notes with the address book plugin. It lets you check which of your contacts are members of openBC. As this raises some privacy issues, openBC states:

openBC guarantees that the wizard will be used only for a one-time import of your address book. No data from your address book will be stored on openBC servers. You yourself decide which contacts of yours will be invited. Of course, this means your contacts will not be approached by openBC. This feature is for your benefit only.

If you are not a member, you can use this invitation.


Hm, for some reason I seem to have some trouble with the plug-in.
a) It only gives me a list of 40 contacts, even though my address book contains way more.
b) After selecting the contacts which I want to search for on OpenBC or which I want to invite, the Plug-In crashes.

Btw: How far is it really a "plug-in"? To me, it seems to be rather a stand-alone client which accesses an obenBC-API...
