Outlook supports vcard import or csv import + others. But for lotus these are all possible solutions..

If you can, write an agent to process the contacts and write it to csv files as required by Outlook.

Or convert your contacts to vcard file and then import into outlook. Here is the sample for creating vcards

Unfortuntly, I no longer have access to Lotus Notes anymore, since that was with my former employer.  I only have the "names.nsf" Lotus Notes file or an exported structure text file version.  Thus I cannot add an agent to Lotus Notes to create these V-Cards!  Is there another way to massage the data through some data parsing program using either the "names.nsf" file or exported structure text file?
