I'd suggest the requirement for LotusScript in this role might make it out of your skillset.
But, if I were you, I'd call the recruitment agent and tell them that you have all the other skills, if you do that is. You might well as a lot of companies still use Release 6.5 and ask if the recruitment agents thinks it's worth you putting your CV/resume in for it anyway. It will show that you are motivated and keen.

Indeed. There are differences between 5/6 and 7/8, but they are not insurmountable. If you were a good admin in 5 and 6, you'll be up to speed in 7 and 8 in a month, maybe two.

Hi,

Why don't you download a trial/evaluation and run it in a virtualised environment:

You can download a BES Trial (Version 5.0.2) from here:

Great one. Best to prepare questions for them, find out what version they use and what sort of setup they have (how many servers, do they use sametime or Quickr etc).
There is so much Domino reading available on the net, best to do a search and read what interests you, then you'll be able to talk about it more freely.
Best to read up and get an understanding of everything they've mentioned in the job spec and ask the recruiter more questions about them and the software they use, then at least you'll know what the software they use does and about their particular release.
Probably in depth details of the way Lotus Notes Email works in version 8 would be a good start. Try looking through the Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_Lotus_Notes and see where it takes you...
