IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook

by Volker Weber

Long announcement letter, TL;DR

Enables you to connect a Microsoft Outlook 2013 client to a Domino V9.0.1 Server

Two caveats, translated:

  1. "A small, lightweight client add-on for Outlook must be installed on user workstations." Domino does not behave like Exchange.
  2. "Users can log in with their existing credentials." Users need to use separate credentials from Windows.

Deploying Outlook against Domino is not a smart architectural decision. Microsoft does not break it on purpose, but they also do not test against it. At best it's a tactical move to buy some time when users with pitchforks demand their Outlook client.

Two additional caveats: No SLES. No Outlook 2016.

I think the plan is to add Outlook 2010, and then 2016.

Strange. I'd guess any possible migration scenario they'd like to prevent with this would start with Outlook 2016.

Oliver Regelmann, 2016-06-29

Well, IBM started this way before 2016 became available and it has been running at their customers for quite a while with 2013.

I think I asked for this at Lotusphere in 1999.. So not bad - 17 years to deliver.

Wonder when documentation on the LSX toolkit will arrive ;)

hum hum, I previously had the feedback from IBM that Outlook 2016 is supported and... we deployed it with Outlook 2016 one month ago: So far so good!

If it were supported, it would probably be mentioned in the formal announcement letter. Glad it is working for you.
