Is there a way to connect Lotus Notes to Thunderbird?

My company uses Lotus Notes as one of the email clients. I'd prefer using Thunderbird because it's free and also because I find it more intuitive. I looked online and on forums, but didn't manage finding a way to connect Lotus Notes to Thunderbird.

Want on Thunderbird:

  1. to be able to send and receive emails
  2. receive calender events
  3. absolutely very little need to open Lotus Notes

Is this even possible? Thanks!

Notes supports IMAP service.

Thunderbird is an IMAP client.

So yes it is possible. Contact your Notes admin for details of the IMAP service (hostname, port, login credentials).

thanks for your answer. Sorry, I didn't get to verify your answer by establishing a connection between Notes 6.5 and Thunderbird. Thankfully, my company decided to upgrade my Notes to version 8! Will get back to this issue if I'm not satisfied by Notes 8 either... – user640378 May 9 '12 at 15:14
