i have to export the contacts/mail/calendar data from a ms outlook client to lotus notes r5.

i tried to export in lotes 123 and import the data in notes. i've got a little problem doing this. notes do not import the right data in the right fields.

so my question is: is there an other way to do this operation? or how can i solve this problem?

Try this:
Export the outlook contacts into Excel, and edit the columns in there to be similar to the field names in the private address book's business card form. Export the new file to 123 format, then import this file from the private address book.
also check this question, there is a useful script if u want:

1. The script has a bug! It is missing a semicolon, and Notes won't save it!

2. I try renaming the column headings, but Notes ignores them, and just imports from left to right - I need more details on how to import please. It creates a record, but when you open it, the fields are all blank!

You start the lotus notes installation, select Notes client only, check on Custom and then check on migration tool. When the installation is completed. Go to \lotus\notes type NUPGRADE 3. Your migration will proceed and your contact will go into your names.nsf and your personal folder will reside on \lotus\notes\mail\a_admin.nsf (if you login using administrator).
