• Kernel for Lotus Notes to Novell GroupWise helps administrators within a small or medium company convert files from IBM Notes (previously known as Lotus Notes) and Domino servers, in order to transfer them to Novell GroupWise mailboxes.

    This is an intuitive software application that enables you to migrate the whole emails or extract only the items of interest, such as address books, calendars, appointments, tasks, drafts, sent items, or journals. They can be saved to TXT or RTF file type.

    In order to run it, you must have IBM Notes installed, while GroupWise is necessary for executing the file transfer after conversion.

    The program is packed in a user-friendly interface made from a large window that has only a few steps for carrying out tasks quickly.

    You can get started by selecting the IBM Notes database files (NSF format) you want to transfer from a local directory, network location or even Domino Server, provided that you have the login credentials and the tool installed.

    It’s possible to select or add a specific GroupWise mailbox as the destination, as well as to create, remove or rename folders. You can preview emails from the NSF database and select the items you want to move or pick everything for migration, and specify the saving directory in the GroupWise mailbox. Data can be exported to text or RTF format (low or best quality).

    The software utility worked smoothly in our tests, without triggering the operating system to hang, crash or prompt error dialogs. It left a small footprint on system resources, thanks to the fact that it needed a low amount of CPU and RAM to work properly.

    To sum it up, Kernel for Lotus Notes to Novell GroupWise offers a simple solution for companies that want to migrate emails from IBM notes to GroupWise mailboxes. However, it hasn’t been updated for a long time.
