This topic explains how to configure the Lotus Notes client on the server running Microsoft® Exchange Server 2003.

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Lotus Applications, and then click Lotus Notes. Because this is the first time you have run Lotus Notes, the Lotus Notes Client Configuration Wizard starts. Click Next.

  2. On the Welcome page, click Next.

  3. When prompted, type in the name you set up for the user ID for Exchange Connector for Lotus Notes and enter the name of the user's home/mail Domino server. Select I want to connect to a Domino server. Click Next.

  4. On the How Do You Want to Connect to a Domino Server page, select Set up a connection to a local area network (LAN), and then click Next.

  5. On the Domino Server Network Information page, in the Domino server name text box, type the name of the Lotus Domino server that will act as a bridgehead between Exchange Server 2003 and Lotus Domino. In the Please provide specific network information to help locate this server dialog box, select TCP/IP. In the Server address field, type the hostname or IP address for the Domino server listed above, and then click Next. This server should be the one that you configured earlier.

  6. When asked if you want the User ID file copied to your data directory, click Yes.

  7. Type in the password for the user ID file.

  8. If prompted to set up Instant Messaging, clear the Setup instant messaging check box, and then click Next.

  9. On the Additional Services page, click Next.

  10. You will receive a message that indicates that Notes setup is complete. Click OK.

  11. Verify that the selected location is set to Office (should be displayed in the lower-right corner of the Notes client). If not, select the name displayed there and then choose the Office location.

  12. Exit Lotus Notes.
