Using Lotus Notes without the email component

We are in the US, and our parent company is in Germany. We are running Scalix as a mail server/Outlook back end. Our parent company is running Lotus Notes clients and Domino 8.0 on the server side. They are currently developing a CRM application that is hosted on the Domino server, although I don't yet know the specifics.

They would like us to transfer our mail accounts and repoint our MX records at one of their boxes, but it just doesn't make sense to us, because a large percentage of our email traffic is intra-office, here in the states. Is it possible to use all of the Lotus Notes collaboration features without the email component? That way we can have our cake, and eat it too. Any responses are greatly appreciated.

The easiest solution would seem that you install and configure a Domino server locally.

If you intend to continue using Outlook as mail client, there are interesting options. ( e.g. DAMO).

But if you want to use Scalix as mail server, the admins should link both servers via SMTP. It's possible, but you'd lose quite a lot of functionality.

Your solution seems a little like cake without butter. You may have my piece... ;-))

We don't want a local Domino install, and we don't want to link servers. We want to use Lotus Notes clients to access the CRM application, but we want to keep our existing email infrastructure. Can the client be used without an email component?

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I know that there are other options, but this was the response I was looking for.

Thanks again,
