Exchange coexistence and migration from Lotus DOmino

Hello  team,

I have a customer who is running Exchange 2007 and Lotus Domino server, and is looking to integrate their systems using Lotus transport domino in EXCHANGE 2007.

The client is initially looking for coexistence, and later on they will me migrating all the accounts and lists from Domino to Exchange.

Can you please provide me with high level steps to perform the coexistence phase and the migration phase? Please, do not only attach links, or blogs, provide your thoughts, high level steps, and recommendations to integrate both systems and then migrate in the future

In addition to that, can you please provide me with some links, blogs, articles with tons of screenshots to integrate Exchange and Lotus Domino? please, step by step instruction with tons of screenshots

Please consider both phases, coexistence and then migration

This is a question for both teams, Lotus IBM and Exchange teams.

What you're asking is the livelihood of a complete company. The question is far too wide to give a good answer. What exactly is the problem?

Please sir, we're just experts, we're not remunerated in any way for our efforts (except for the occasional T-shirt)...

As for Notes and coexistence, you can always start reading these documents:

The question is about tho phases

HOw to integrate Exchange 2003 or 2007 with Domino?

Once coexistence is on place, how to migrate resources from Domino to Exchange

If you want my advice: coexist is okay, but don't migrate. It'll cost your client an awful lot of money, and the ROI takes years. In your calculations, don't forget the many hidden costs for Microsoft licences... Plenty examples on the Internet.
