What about any difference in looks on the client side (i.e. Outlook)  If a user had a certain email folder layout does that transfer as well.  So if a user had an inbox and below that had folders organizing their emails, would theylook the same after the migration and the user opens Outlook?

the user will have to adjust to to outlook, I would sugest training in outlook before hand to get them ready but you can adjust outlook to the folder view lay a out and the will see all the sub folders under their inbox the contact will have to be exported from lotus and imported in outlook
