Are NSF archives portable (i.e. viewable after you leave the company)

Sorry if this has been answered already, but can a Lotus Notes archive, in the form of an NSF file, be taken with you -- and successfully opened -- after you leave a place of employment?

I understand there may be a need to purchase a Lotus Notes client, but wanted to ensure there would not be anything specifically tied to security associated with the mail file in order to open it.

I know .PST Outlook archive files, or individual email message files, are both completely portable, in that you can later always open them on another computer running Outlook Express / etc, without having to log in or authenticate in any way.  

Could one do the same with an .NSF?

You should be able to view the files even after leaving the company. You will need lotus notes on the machine in order to open the file as there are no free viewers avialable.

You may be able to view the file without the client by using the notespeek tool available here
