Lotus Notes 6.1 import contacts into Outlook 365

Is it possible to import Lotus Notes 6.1 contacts into Outlook 365 or Outlook 2013?  I used the Export menu within Lotus Notes to export a contacts.vcf file and then imported into Outlook, however only 1 contact showed up.

Thank you, however in Lotus 6.1 I did not see an option to export as a .csv file.

Well... Upgrade to Notes 9 (and forget about the migration).

Or try an export to tabular text.

Where can I find Notes 9, and will I be able to import 6.1 data into the program?

The export options that are available in Lotus Notes 6.1 are not importable into Outlook 365 as far as I can tell.

AFAIK there is a Notes R9 downloadable from the IBM website, but exactly where I don't know. As you might (should) know, Notes is almost record holder on upwards compatibility: I'm pretty sure that even R4 databases can be opened by more current versions, when you have the correct credentials of course.

By the way, did you mean Notes R6.0.1, from 2003? For Lotus Notes 6.1 never existed... See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_Notes

Another option is to take your Notes database to a friendly party with a more modern version, and ask them to export your database. You'd have to "unprotect" the database: make sure it isn't encrypted and grant Manager right to Default in the ACL.

I am totally unfamiliar with Lotus Notes and have never used the program.  I am trying to assist someone else with this problem.

The version must be 6.0.1.  How do I access the database file?  what is the file extension?  does the database file contain everything (i.e. contacts, tasks, calendar, etc.) ?

I searched the IBM website however it is quite confusing.  They mention Domino and social version of Notes.

If you're not familiar with Notes, it will take us days to explain what you have to do, which is to follow a crash-course on Notes. I do not have the time to do that.

The version does not have to be 6.0.1, because any later version will be able to open the database, on the condition that the database is not encrypted, or if it is, you have the ID-file of the owner of the database.

Find someone with Notes and the necessary hands-on experience. I'm afraid I can't help you from where I am.
