Microsoft Transporter Suite For Lotus Domino Release - On Valentine's Day !

Today we release the Microsoft Transporter Suite 2007 for Lotus Domino.  It is publically available for download at  Customers, Partners and consultants can download the released product immediately and begin using these tools to transition from Domino to the Microsoft 2007 collaboration platform.


Personally, I would like to thank all the partners, customers, and consultants that made the beta program such a success.  Even though the program was very short, we had a record number of participants with overwhelming feedback.  This feedback was valuable in tuning the final released product.


Finally, I thought it was fitting to ship on Valentine’s day.  What is more romantic than a pair of PowerShell tasks that can automatically migrate data elements into Active-Directory, SharePoint or Exchange.

P.S. We will continue to blog here and feel free to use this for feedback to our group about these tools.

  • You guys said mid Feb and delivered right now time. Congrats! Do you have a timeframe for step examples for SMTP routing with Notes and Exchange 2007?


  • Thanks, it was good to get it released yesterday.  We are working on some white-papers (as we did last year) around this area.  Also we should blog about it here.  If you have specific questions please ask them here and I will see that we address thoes.


  • Is this a total replacement for the 2006 "Application Transporter" or is there some overlap? For purposes of this question I'm only interested in migrating *applications*, not email or users.



  • More of an 'Upgrade' vs a replacement.  The 2006 Application transporter is designed to work with WSS v2 where-as the new tools work with SharePoint 2007.  So if you have an older version of SharePoint you should use the old tools.  (Same on the messaging side, we will contiune to have the 2003 version of the mail tools foe Exchange 2003.)


  • I have been trying to use the tool for the last couple of days, and have not had any success in migrating any mail. Who and how can I contact someone for help on these issues.

  • Hi,

    i'm encountering a problem where when moving mail accross from Domino to Exchange, messages are transferred correctly. However, the From field is not displayed in the message listing in Outlook, but when doing a "reply" the field is present and the address used.

    Just wondering if this was expected or not?


  • Microsoft released last week Transporter Suite for Lotus Domino 2007 . This tool is used for interoperability

  • I can't seem to get Lotus Notes mail folders to migrate.  The only mail items that migrate are those in the Inbox and Sent Items.  Any additional folders seem to be skipped.  Is this a known issue?  Any resolution?

  • is it possible to customize directory connector? one example: On exchange My user has several SMTP address:

    My custom recpient in Notes(created by the connector) has only Is it possible to change this?

  • RE: mdaitc

    Are you talking about sending messages over SMTP from Domino to Exchange or are you talking about migrating messages from Domino to Exchange?  We've done a lot of header testing in migration and haven't seen blank from: fields.  This is not an expected problem.

    re: jrawson

    We specifically did a lot of testing about migrating user created folders and didn't have problems.  If you're seeing a problem in this area, it's not expected.


  • migrating messages from Domino to Exchange using the transport management console.

    It's strange, the from field is there when looking at the message - when using reply, the address appears. Just in the actual folder listing the messages the from field isn't displayed.

    The 2003 Exchange migration wizard for lotus migrated it fine..

  • We're trying to migrate mailboxes from Notes to Exchange 2007. We only want to migrate the mailboxes from Notes to existing users in our new Exchange environment. Is this possible? I havent't found a way that does this. When I try to use the manual migrate with AD lookup I get error-msg that the user doesn't exist, but it does. Do you have any examples of scripts that does the work I want to be done or any other guidlines along the way?

    What permissions is needed on the Notes-side to perform just the move-mailbox ?
