Has anyone discoverd how to sync calendars and contacts from an Lotus Notes on Windows XP to an iPod Touch?  mSuite has introduced an enterprise solution - this is not an option.  Lotus Notes 8 will sync to an iPod Touch - this is also not an option since the company standard is Lotus Notes 7.  Currently, I sync a Palm Tungsten E2 to Lotus Notes using mNotes then I sync the Tungsten to another computer with MS Outlook.  Finally I sync the iPod Touch with Outlook.  A major pain but working in a clunky manner.  All suggestions are welcome?

Companion Link will sync Lotus Notes with an iPhone/iPod Touch over the internet via a Google account:

I should have mentioned that syncing using an online address book is against company policy and is also against my policy.  Thanks for the suggestion.  The solution needs to be solved withouit the internet.

The software marsilies mentioned states the wireless sync as optional. It has an option for synchronizing through USB according to the site (express version)

Just wanted to point that out

The wired version of Companion Link for iPhone requires Outlook on the same PC that has Lotus Notes. It looks like the path is Lotus Notes -> Outlook -> iPhone.

They also have a "wireless" service that encrypts the data between the PC and the iPhone/iPod Touch, and only stores the encrypted data remotely until it's synced:

CompanionLink is the answer!  Thanks for the suggestion.  This solution calls for MS Outlook, iTunes and the iPod Touch.  I would like to take iTunes out of the loop but it seems as though I will have to wait.  In the meantime, thank you for the great answer.
