lotus nsf to mbox

Hi,

I am wondering, if anyone tried to convert lotus nsf mails
to a mbox format using python!? It would be nice, if anyone
has an idea, how to do it on a linux machine.

Regards!

You can try to read NSF databases using Lotus ActiveX controls. I am
sure I saw an example few years ago.

I've used jython to access notes databases through the Notes
Java APIs. Though I don't know if the Java APIs are available
on Linux.

thanks for your ideas! I actually thought of something like
a python parser, which just converts the nsf structure to an
mbox; could that work!?

Well, If you wish to go that route, I believe you will have to reverse
engineer the Notes Database binary structure because I've never seen
it published anywhere. My suggestion, if you can use a Windows
machine, just use the Lotus Notes COM Objects via the Python Win32
bindings, as mentioned above.

If you really need to do it from Linux and are lucky enough to be
running the IIOP task on your Domino server, then you could possibly
use CORBA.

You could always enable the IMAP interface on the Domino machine and use
imaplib to retrieve the mail via IMAP.

Be prepared to hit a lot of bugs in Domino implementations of IIOP and
IMAP depending on the Domino version deployed...

Ciao, Michael.
