Migration to Microsoft Exchange

We have recently had to move to Microsoft Exchange as our main mail system for corporate reasons, but I still have a large number of Lotus notes databases that I want to keep, so I want to continue to use Notes for my databases. The question that I have is there any way of mailing from a notes database a message or a doclink to an exchange 5.5 server, internal, rather than trying to mail out over the Internet using the @alocnlabs.com address. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I loved Notes.
I'm sorry to hear about the migration. I don't believe you can keep the Notes formatting when sending to Exchange. Any Notes specific items (doc links, etc.) would not be translated. If you are just sending text, attachments, etc. then those would be sent properly. If you want to avoid sending items between Notes and Exchange over the Internet, you can look at the Exchange to Notes Connector. This is a product provided by Microsoft. For information about this product, check the Microsoft website or contact your MS representative. For some ideas of what the Exchange Connector can and cannot do, read the transcript from a recent SearchDomino chat session. We had an Exchange/Notes guru online for over an hour. He answered many questions on the Connector. Here is the link. https://www.bitpipe.com/ Transcript_Page/0,287036,511677,00.html.
