Description Cláudio Sampaio 2001-08-19 17:22:46 UTC
Description of Problem:
---> There is a great demand for a Lotus Notes Client replacement on the
GNU/Linux world. I think that is why Evolution was created. But it could
also be compatible with Lotus Notes, so that we can use it instead (and
there's no native Lotus Notes Client for GNU/Linux!)

Expected Results:
---> Reading Lotus Notes Mail on Evolution Mail, browsing Lotus Notes
databases and Addressbooks via Evolution

Has any progress been made on this one? Notes support would enable
many ppl to ditch win32 desktops completely

Please novell, make it real

Comment 7 Lucas Vieites 2007-01-09 11:09:26 UTC
Although IBM has published a new Notes version that will work on (GNU/)Linux, I thought I'd just drop a note to say that there are still people hoping for the possibility to connect to a Domino server from Evolution.

Comment 8 Philippe "RzR" Coval 2008-05-28 11:01:13 UTC

An opensource client is always good, but I can not tell if it worth the effort or not ...

I dont have so much time to investigate on this, but I can help to test...

Anyway I'll collect some info on  lotus on linux at :

Comment 9 c.cerbo 2009-07-14 21:52:28 UTC
Lotus Notes is now also available for Linux, but I'd prefer to use Evolution as client.
Comment 10 Vilain Mamuth 2011-06-03 07:55:20 UTC
For mail managing, Domino can act as an IMAP and LDAP server. So no need for a connector.
Comment 11 André Klapper 2012-02-09 09:26:45 UTC
This could be done by anybody interested (for example currently evolution-kolab is being worked on as a connector for the Kolab groupware) but will not be done by the Evolution core developers. => WONTFIX, but feel free to write your own module if interested.

Also see the last comment 10 here (thanks Vilain!). :)
