How do I setup Microsoft Project 98 to utilize the Workgroup functions for Lotus Notes 4.6 mail clients without having to buy expensive 3rd party software.  In project, there are 3 important features that work well with Outlook clients.  That's the Task Assignment, Task Update, and Task Status features.  They communicate well with Outlook's Task and e-mail.  I want that same functionality for Notes 4.6 mail clients.

Ah ... given the new qualifier excluding the "expensive 3rd party software" I must retract my earlier comment.  Sorry!

IF you want a "free" solution:

In order to get similar functionality in Notes (that you get with Outlook) you will need to make some configuration changes on the Domino Server.
You will need to load the IMAP Server Task on the Domino Server.  Then you will need to configure the mail databases (that will participate with MS Project) for IMAP.  Setup MS Project to use the IMAP Transport protocol and give it the necessary information to mail to the Domino Server.  This does work, I have a customer using it right now.

However; the best solution is through a third party application.  The one that rfharris recommends is one of the best.

*Note: The functionality will not be the exact same as Outlook.
