Ask your Domino administrator to set up POP or IMAP for you on the Domino mail server. No need to convert anything.

Of course, if I undersood you correctly. The way Lotus Notes works, as a mail client to a Domino server, is like this (usually): the Domino server receices and stores the mail, Notes is only used to open and read mail. They all stay in a database on the server. If you want to use Notes to read mails in off-line mode, a replica of the mail database is created locally. That replica is updated whenever your PC/Mac has a connection with the server.

If you configure Outlook with an IMAP account that permits access to the Domino server, your Outlook can fetch all mail and leave them in the database. AFAIK, Outlook supports this. Ask your Admin!

Thanks for all your suggestions. Finally I choose to create a replica because the applications suggested need to be purchased.
