Lotus Notes works with LDAP I think as of version 5.

But as for your first question,
1) If they are in the Lotus Notes Address book they should be Notes users if they have a defined mail file,
If they are outlook users they probably just have a forwarding address.

You can use Lotuscript to pull up the address book entries and check for these fields.

I hope this helps !

Try using
@NameLookup( [ flag ] ; username; itemtoreturn )

for the user to check against public address book and return his/her MailDomain.

Check help for more info on this function

is there any way so that i can show the outlookaddress book at runtime to lotus notes user? and is there way so that i will allow the user to import his/her outlook address book in to lotus notes system(Instead of lotus notes address book ) but that info will be saved on  user local machine instead of server. i mean to say some think like private views. and then i can figure it out whether user is   internal or external user. please help me out.

1) You can use a macro or similar to import the Outlook address book into the Local Personal Address book.

Here are  simple step by step instructions I found.

 Manually export existing contacts from Outlook and import them into Notes with correctly mapped fields.

 GO GET IT:
http://www.notes.net/sandbox.nsf/85d5b6903071400e8525676d0079b3ae/e56fec0e6fdacea785256a0f0077e2b5?OpenDocument

I would take 2 precautions beforehand.

Close the Notes program.
1) In the notes\data or Lotus\notes\data directory,  make a copy of the names.nsf file ( personal address book ). If there are any problems, you will be able to restore the original.

2) After you finish importing, test a few names, to make sure that the email names and sending to htem is OK.

Thanks !

                 ** FAQ - Options to Import Outlook into Notes **

                 CYA - I have not used nor tested all these products. (Nor am I getting any money for promoting them.
                 :-) I am, however, letting you know what options you have based on the many posts over the year.

                 Option 1.
                 Outlook to Notes Address Book Converter (freeware)
                 BY: Doug Haigh
                 VERSION: 4.6x, not tested on R5
                 GO GET IT:
                 http://www.notes.net/sandbox.nsf/ecc552f1ab6e46e4852568a90055c4cd/0afb9f270378a44c8525689500764436?OpenDocument&ExpandSection=1&Highlight=0,outlook#_Section1

                 Option 2.
                 Select the Migration Tool during the Notes R5 install. (comes with R5)
                 VERSION: R5
                 Go to a command prompt to the directory where Notes was installed (commonly c:\Lotus\Notes) and type
                 "nmsxupgd.exe 3".

                 Option 3.
                 Outlook 2 Notes (purchase)
                 BY: Binary Tree
                 VERSION: 4.6x and R5
                 GO GET IT: http://www.binarytree.com

                 Option 4 (alternatively known as "the last resort").
                 Manually export existing contacts from Outlook and import them into Notes with correctly mapped fields.

                 GO GET IT: Email jessica@newmill.com for the spreadsheet with mapped fields and instructions.

                 For more information on other platforms such as Netscape, etc. and a press release from Lotus about
                 their Migration Packs, visit http://www.lotus.com/supermove

                 Jess :-)
                 Also email me if anyone has anymore to add or if I'm incorrect about something. Or if you are Doug Haigh
                 and you are mad because I posted about your freeware without permission. ;-)
