Archiving Lotus Domino on NRPC Protocol

Hello
Is it possible to archive emails from Lotus Domino (that uses NRPC on port 1352) to a 3rd party archiving software that retrieve messages only by POP, IMAP or SMTP ?
On the archiving software I can change the port to any number, but I am not sure if changing it to 1352 and pointing it to Lotus would work.
I imagine that it could because email is email but I don't know and so that what I need to find out.
I have very little knowledge on Lotus ( and no lab) but my knowledge on email is pretty extensive.
How could I get archive Lotus Domino that uses only NRPC to an archiving software that only uses POP/IMAP or SMTP?
All comments welcome.

And your 3rd party software has no name? Apparently you already have the solution (the TPS), but what is the real problem?

There are many ways to archive Domino databases, here are a few:
- Lotus Notes and Domino support archiving from a mail database to an archive database
- there are some products that support automatic backups (e.g. ArcServe, Symantec)
- there are indeed some 3rd party products: usually they can supply you with the necessary information

Hmm, you are mistaking the protocol used for communication between Domino servers and clients with the capabilities of Domino and Notes to use other protocols.

Both Domino and Notes are quite capable and regularly use other protocols than NRPC to communicate with other network entities.

If you enable IMAP in the Server document, and tell the firewall (if it is between the 3rd party archiving software and Domino) to let it through, and authorize the 3rd party (an id which it can use should be set up and a internet password should be setup for that ID), said 3rd party archiving software should be able to function.

Note that in Domino 8.5.3 IMAP has been updated.

By company policy only NRCP can be used, meaning no POP, IMAP, SMTP. This is the first time I ever heard of another protocol other that the 3 mentioned used for email.
So, I am guessing NRCP has its own set of commands that are different from POP or IMAP??

UNrcp is the Notes proprietary protocol for client-server communication. POP, IMAP and SMTP are Internet standard protocols for mail traffic.
If you are not allowed to let Domino talk POP or IMAP, then what are you doing with an archiving solution that only speaks POP or IMAP?

It speaks POP, IMAP, SMTP... We are evaluating Lotus
So, the solution won't work ? Any ideas how it could ?
