DAMO és Windows 7 és Outlook 2010

Bár az IBM nem támogatja, merész szakemberek mégis megpróbálták és úgy néz ki, hogy 32 bites környezetben működik. Fontos megjegyezni, hogy ehhez az IBM jelenleg nem tud támogatást nyújtani, azaz mindenki kizárólag a saját felelősségére használhatja. Ha véletlenül a link nem működne.


Using Office Outlook 2010 with Lotus Notes backend connector (DAMO) on Windows 7.

Many companies wish to use Lotus Domino as a mail backend, with Microsoft Outlook as the mail client. IBM provides a connector for doing this, called DAMO - Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook.  It's available on the IBM website, if your company has the necessary contractual arrangements... and if you can find it! Here's how I went about getting it to run on Windows 7 with the Office Outlook 2010 Technical Preview. It is working for  e on theOffice 2010 Beta as well. Find the DAMO installation software somewhere on the IBM website. It may  e available here: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/lotus/downloads/. Run through the DAMO setup  oftware. You will need two pieces of information * Your Lotus Domino server name (I found this in Lotus Notes 8 by looking in File->Locations->Manage Locations->Edit->Servers); and  * Your Lotus Notes username.id file, which is usually stored in the Lotus Notes application folder, for example C:\Program Files\IBM\Lotus\Notes\Data\username.id .   (Replace username with your own username.) The installation will create a MAPI profile, which is basically a collection of settings for talking to your Lotus Domino server. Once installation has completed, Reboot the PC. Start Outlook 2010 and select the newly created MAPI profile. If you get an error that Office 2010 cannot access a file, you can work around this by right clicking on the  utlook icon in the start menu, and selecting properties->compatibility, and checking the "run this program as an administrator" checkbox. Please note that running Outlook as an administrator is a bad idea in general, and  e'll set it back to normal shortly in step 8. The DAMO plugin will launch another setup process and retrieve  ails and other settings from your domino server. Here is where I had problems. I had to close and restart outlook  bout 10 times, as the DAMO plugin would stall after a minute or two. Each time I restarted, it continued from  here it had finished. Eventually it had imported all my mail folders and appointments. Close Outlook as  equested. Set the compatibility mode back to normal by right clicking on the Outlook icon in the start menu,  electing properties->compatibility, and uncheck the "run this program as an administrator" checkbox. (Optional) continue complaining to colleagues about Lotus Notes' User Interface, and its impact on your  roductivity. :-)
