Using Microsoft Outlook with a Lotus Domino server

Lotus Notes and Domino Server administration expert Mike Lazar helps an administrator sort out his options for using Microsoft Outlook clients with Lotus Domino Server 6.5.2.

My company is currently running Lotus Domino Server 6.5.2 with approximately 300 clients; all use Microsoft Outlook 2003 as their email client. The same clients have access to Domino Web Access (DWA) -- although few use it.

Each Microsoft Outlook client is currently using a copy of the master address book -- as opposed to a dynamic version of the company address book.

Are there any other choices to get this accomplished other than using Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook? The version of DAMO we are on, which is 6.5.3, has bugs in it. I know there are later versions, but I wanted to know my other options for using Microsoft Outlook with a Lotus Domino server.

DAMO (Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook) is the way to go here. If you want the dynamic lookup, I don't know of any other options for you.
