Chapter 1. Introduction
Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook (DAMO) is an important new addition to the
Domino 6.5.1 extended products. DAMO allows Outlook client users to easily
access mail and calendar data stored on Lotus Domino servers.

This chapter discusses the many advantages of using the Outlook client with
Lotus Domino servers, as well as providing some typical deployment scenarios.

1.1 Overview
With the release of the Domino 6.5.1 platform, IBM Lotus is delivering all Domino
based collaboration products on a common set of operating systems, languages
and supported browsers.

This is a significant step in the release, testing and support of these products and
most importantly ensures that when installing or upgrading, customers can be
confident that all of the 6.5.1 products will work seamlessly with one another as
well as being backwards compatible with previous releases.

Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook (DAMO), is an important part of the 6.5.1
platform and represents IBM Lotus’ continuing commitment to integrate its
technology with software from other vendors, while bringing the many inherent
strengths of the Domino collaboration products to bear.

DAMO delivers the leading messaging, calendaring, scheduling, and personal


information management of Domino to the Outlook 2000 or 2002 client.

Once installed, users continue to read their mail, perform calendar and
scheduling tasks, and manage their contacts in Outlook just as they always have,
however, no retraining is required.

Organizations can greatly improve the reliability and scalability of their


messaging infrastructure, by upgrading from Microsoft Exchange to Domino,.

DAMO allows organizations to accomplish this without needing to change clients.


This is significant in helping to minimize end user disruption and to drastically
reduce the costs of messaging migration, client deployment and most importantly
end user training.

Also, by moving from Exchange to Domino, organizations will be migrating to a


secure, reliable, and scalable Domino messaging infrastructure that can utilize
the hardware, operating system, and directory of their choice. This gives
organizations far more deployment flexibility than Microsoft Exchange and allows
them to more effectively leverage the performance, scalability, and reliability of
different types of hardware, and more significantly a multitude of non Windows®
based operating systems.

There are several similar solutions to DAMO currently available from other
vendors (including Microsoft), however, these generally require the Lotus Notes®
client to also be installed on the same workstation as Outlook. In this case, each
desktop in the organization has to have new software installed resulting in a
significant deployment cost which largely negates the benefit of allowing end
users to continue using the Outlook client. DAMO is unique, because it simply
installs as a plug-in to the existing Outlook client on the user’s workstation.

2 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


DAMO takes the form of a standard MSI installer package which can be easily
installed through an organization’s existing software distribution tool. An MSI
package also has the advantage of being easily tailored for an organization’s
specific needs.

DAMO also a very small desktop “footprint” (approximately 30 MB), which also
helps ease its deployment.

Once DAMO is installed, instead of accessing Microsoft Exchange servers,


Outlook users will be accessing Lotus Domino servers. This is transparent to
Outlook users and provides an increased quality of service owing to the benefits
of Domino’s integrated SPAM prevention, streaming replication, network
compression, increased network security and most significantly its advanced
automated server failover and load balancing features.

Important: All of these features (and many others not covered here), are built
in to Domino, and therefore require no additional product purchases or
installation.

As a result, the Microsoft Outlook user experience is unchanged with DAMO, as


Outlook users simply continue to work with their mail, calendar and task data on
Domino instead of Microsoft Exchange. What they are transparently receiving
now however are all the additional benefits of Lotus Domino servers.

These benefits are discussed in more detail in the next section, 1.2, “Key
advantages of DAMO with Domino” on page 3, and throughout the rest of this
chapter.

Note: As previously discussed, DAMO is part of the 6.5.1 platform and can be
downloaded from the Lotus Passport Advantage® Web site. It is also
important to note that DAMO will be shipping as a standard feature of Domino
Release 6.5.2.

1.2 Key advantages of DAMO with Domino


As mentioned previously, DAMO gives Microsoft Outlook users the additional
benefits of numerous out of the box Domino features that are not available with
Microsoft Exchange. Some of these key benefits are:
򐂰 Multiple operating system support - Lotus Domino servers are supported on
multiple hardware platforms and software operating systems (such as Linux®,
Solaris, AIX®, OS400, S/390® and Windows), as well as multiple LDAP
directories. This gives organizations far more deployment choices and allows

Chapter 1. Introduction 3
them to leverage the increased scalability, reliability and performance
available on non Windows based operating systems.
򐂰 Clustering - A cluster is a group of Domino servers which provide clients with
automatic load balancing and failover if a server or servers in the group are
not available. Servers may be inaccessible due to planned outages such as
upgrades, or due to unplanned outages such as hardware failures.
Clustering is a built in Domino server feature and has been available since
Release 4. As it works at the Domino server level it is completely independent
of the underlying hardware and operating system thus allowing a cluster to
contain servers with completely different hardware and operating systems.
This gives organizations far more deployment choices for load balancing and
failover and also allows them to leverage the scalability, reliability and
performance available with different operating systems. For example a cluster
can contain servers running Windows 2000, Linux, Solaris and AIX but the
load balancing and failover is automatic and transparent to the client
regardless of whether the client is Outlook, the Notes client or even a browser.
DAMO therefore takes full advantage of Domino’s built-in advanced clustering
features, providing Outlook users with a fully reliable messaging system at all
times without any client side configuration or having to purchase any
additional failover / load balancing products.
򐂰 Replication and Network Compression - DAMO enables the Outlook client to
use Domino’s advanced streaming replication technology to synchronize the
native Outlook PST storage file located on the user’s machine, to a Domino
based mail file residing on the Domino server. Users work with their mail and
calendar offline, and their data is synchronized with the server next time they
connect, thus greatly improving end user performance while reducing network
bandwidth usage
DAMO therefore takes full advantage of the Notes Remote Procedure Call
(NRPC) protocol to send mail from client workstations to the Domino server,
and for mail routing between servers. Domino’s built-in compression
significantly decreases the number of bytes sent during these transactions
thus reducing network bandwidth usage, leading to reduce costs.
򐂰 Preventing Unwanted / Unsolicited e-mail - DAMO allows Outlook users to
leverage Domino server’s anti-spam technology. This allows administrators to
manage SPAM at the server level, therefore drastically reducing the amount
of unwanted mail that reaches the user’s inbox. Some of the many Domino
anti SPAM features include:
– Domino Name System (DNS) Blacklists which allow incoming e-mails to
be checked against lists of know SPAM offenders
– Server based mail rules where administrators can set filtering conditions
based on specific criteria and then define actions to take

Reducing the amount of unwanted mail makes users more productive,
eliminates wasted storage, and reduces network bandwidth usage.
򐂰 Ease of installation - One of the biggest costs associated with messaging
infrastructures and messaging migrations is the cost in deploying new client
software and re-training end users.
As DAMO installs easily using standard MSI technology, user workstations
can be automatically updated using a company's standard software delivery
system (such as SMS or Active Directory Services).
As a result of using standard MSI technology DAMO installations can be fully
scripted and tailored to an organizations specific needs. There are also many
solutions and consulting services available from IBM and its Business
Partners that can assist with migration and installation.
򐂰 Choice of client access - DAMO supports inter operability between Lotus
Notes and Outlook users, including the ability to send and receive e-mail and
perform free and busy time lookup and calendar functions for users, rooms
and resources. For example, if you have some users using the Lotus Notes
client and others using Outlook, they can each view the others’ busy time
calendar information and send meeting invitations, without knowing which
client the other is using. Also, you can provide your Outlook users access to
their mail, calendar, and PIM data via a Web browser (including users running
Mozilla on Linux).
򐂰 Domino Preferences in Outlook - DAMO adds a new Domino Preference tab
to Outlook’s Options display menu. This integrated display add-in provides
users access to many Domino features and settings. Some of the many
features users can access from Outlook are:
– Change the password for their Notes ID
– Enable/Disable the Out of Office agent
– Manage replication settings
– Set some general preferences for their mail and calendar
򐂰 Greatly reduced migration costs - When migrating existing Exchange users
and servers to Domino, organizations may choose to switch all users over at a
single time, or more typically to have periods of co-existence where both
systems are in production.
Domino includes a built in set of automated migration tools for Exchange (as
well as numerous other messaging and directory products), called Domino
Upgrade Services (DUS).
With DUS, organization have complete flexibility when it comes to the
migration and configuration of users from Exchange to Domino, but with no
additional costs for migration tools.
DUS in concert with DAMO therefore gives organizations complete flexibility
and control over their migration as it allows them to automate the migration

Chapter 1. Introduction 5
and configurations of user, their mail and calendar entries either on an
individual user basis, or for logical groups of users e.g. by Exchange server,
department or geographic location without the cost of purchasing additional
migration tools

1.3 Deployment scenarios for DAMO


Figure 1-1 on page 7 shows a typical scenario of an Outlook client with DAMO
installed accessing their mail on a Domino Server.

The Outlook client user simply logs on to their Windows file server as normal (for
example an NT4 or Windows 2000 server), and through the Single Log On
feature in DAMO is able to access their mail which is now on a Domino server.

Notice how the Domino servers in this scenario are clustered for failover despite
being on completely different operating systems.

Domino clustering allows for active users on both servers and these users can be
any mixture of Notes client, Web Browser or Outlook with DAMO users.

6 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


Figure 1-1 Using DAMO with Domino mail servers

In some instances an organization may want to utilize an existing LDAP directory


for user and group names.

As Domino fully supports the LDAP protocol, DAMO could be used in a scenario
where an Outlook user’s mail is stored on a Domino mail server, but the Domino
mail server is using a corporate LDAP directory for name and group lookups.

This scenario is described in Figure 1-2 on page 8.

Note: If the user in the scenario described in Figure 1-2 on page 8 was
logging in to Active Directory (as opposed to say Windows NT®), then Active
Directory could also act as the Corporate LDAP directory for both the Outlook
client and the Domino servers.

It should also be noted, that the Domino Directory itself can also be used as a
corporate LDAP directory and is frequently deployed by organizations as one.

Chapter 1. Introduction 7
Figure 1-2 Using DAMO with Domino mail servers and a corporate LDAP directory

1.4 Why Outlook support is important


Lotus Domino is widely regarded as superior to Microsoft Exchange as a
messaging and calendar server.

This is largely because Domino offers a consistent, enterprise grade


architecture, better reliability, built in automated failover and load balancing
together with virus handling and anti spam protection features that are
significantly more robust than those of Microsoft Exchange.

However, despite these features, changing the Outlook client is often strongly
resisted by end users as change = trauma. This in turn can lead to a loss in user
productivity and therefore an overall rise in costs.

8 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


Having a common platform for all client messaging options however helps reduce
the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a messaging and collaboration environment.

It is also quite common for organizations to operate multiple messaging systems


which may comprise both Lotus Domino and Microsoft Exchange. This is often
typically the case when organizations merge or when one company purchases
another.

In such cases, standardizing on a common Lotus Domino backed for messaging


and collaboration would help reduce TCO but the cost of deploying a new
messaging client and retraining users may be prove to be prohibitive.

Figure 1-3 The Microsoft Outlook client

Bearing these points in mind, DAMO is therefore best utilized by:


򐂰 Existing Outlook/Exchange customers who are looking for alternatives to
Microsoft Fault Tolerance.
򐂰 Mixed environments moving towards standardization who want value add
rather than simply replacing one e-mail system with another.

Chapter 1. Introduction 9
1.5 DAMO overview
Before delving in to the detailed architecture of DAMO it is important to
understand what the Outlook user experience is like when using Domino as the
back end.

This is important as it addresses the key purpose of DAMO, namely giving


Outlook users the increased functionality, reliability and security of Domino
without having to retrain them.

1.5.1 Domino mail in Outlook


Figure 1-4 shows an Outlook client connected to a Domino mail file. In this
instance the Domino server is clustered for load balancing and failover and is
actually running on Linux.

Figure 1-4 Using Domino mail with Outlook

10 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


This is transparent to the Outlook user but the look and feel of the mail
environment is exactly the same as when the Outlook user was connected to an
Exchange server back end.

1.5.2 Domino calendar in Outlook


Figure 1-5 shows Outlook displaying exactly the same data as the Notes client.
Notice how the calendar entries appear in the regular Outlook format “look and
feel”.

Figure 1-5 Using Domino calendar entries in Outlook

Chapter 1. Introduction 11
Calendar entries
Figure 1-6 shows in more detail how an individual calendar entry in the Notes
client appears in Outlook. Notice how the information from the Notes calendar
data is displayed in the regular Outlook format.

Figure 1-6 Domino calendar entries in Outlook

12 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


Free time lookups
Figure 1-7 shows how the Notes and Outlook clients both display free time in
their respective calendars. Users can easily search for free time on other Domino
users’ calendars regardless of what clients are being used.

Figure 1-7 Free time lookups in Outlook

Chapter 1. Introduction 13
Contacts in Outlook
Figure 1-8 shows how contacts appear in Outlook. Again, note how they are
presented in the regular Outlook format that users are familiar with.

Figure 1-8 Contacts in Outlook

14 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


Accessing directories in Outlook
Figure 1-9 shows how the Domino directory (and any additional corporate
directories such as an LDAP directory or the Exchange Global Address list)
appear in Outlook.

Figure 1-9 Accessing the Domino directory in Outlook

Notice how the Domino Directory simply appears as an additional directory in the
regular Outlook directory pull-down menu.

This greatly assists users with mail addressing and retrieving user information
and is particularly helpful in any periods of co-existence between Domino and
Exchange (as user entries will typically be split between both mail systems
during a migration).

Chapter 1. Introduction 15
The fact that Domino is able to make other corporate LDAP directories available
to Outlook users means that users can very easily gain access to a greater
amount of corporate data.

1.6 Domino preferences in Outlook


Existing Lotus Notes client users will already be familiar with a number of specific
Notes client preferences that relate to areas such as security, out of office and
replication settings.

DAMO installs these preferences in to the Outlook client and makes them
available from the usual Outlook options menu.

This section takes a closer look at these preferences.

Figure 1-10 Domino Preferences tab in the Outlook options menu

16 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


1.6.1 Password and security
Figure 1-11 shows the Notes user password and security preferences installed in
to the Outlook client by DAMO.

Figure 1-11 Domino password and security options in Outlook

Unlike Microsoft Exchange, Notes/Domino does not rely on the underlying


operating system security, but contains a highly secure and robust private/public
key mechanism.

Outllook users, therefore, have the ability to change their Notes password from
within the Outlook client and can also import and export certificates (for example,
an X.509 certificate) into their Notes ID.

Chapter 1. Introduction 17
Figure 1-12 Single Log On options installed in to the Outlook client by DAMO

Important: The DAMO installation includes a Single Log On option which if


selected, keeps the Notes ID password synchronized with the operating
system password. Outlook users are also provided with the check box options
highlighted in red in Figure 1-12.

Not only is the single log on feature extremely convenient for end users, it also
helps to greatly reduce the administrative tasks associated with password
maintenance.

More importantly though, it gives Outlook client users all the added benefits of
Notes/Domino’s robust private/public key security architecture.

More information about the Single Log On option can be found in 4.1,
“Installing DAMO” on page 48.

Figure 1-13 shows the Out Of Office preferences installed in to the Outlook client
by DAMO.

Figure 1-13 Domino out of office settings in Outlook

As can be seen in Figure 1-13, the functionality available in the Notes client is
now reproduced in the Outlook client.

Outlook users have the ability to set specific out of office preference handling
options.

Chapter 1. Introduction 19
1.6.3 Replication settings
Replication is the pivotal mechanism used by DAMO for mail and calendar data
synchronization between the Outlook client and Domino servers.

Figure 1-14 Domino replication settings in Outlook

These preferences allow users to control which server they replicate their data
with, the replication schedule, what to do if their server mail file exceeds it quota
and most importantly these options give Outlook users the ability to encrypt and
compress their replication sessions with the Domino server.

This ensures that network communications between the Outlook client and the
Domino server are both optimal and secure.

Again, these options help demonstrate how Outlook clients are able to easily
take advantage of Domino’s superior replication, compression and security
features.

1.6.4 Calendaring and scheduling
Figure 1-15 shows the Calendaring and scheduling options installed in to the
Outlook client by DAMO.

Figure 1-15 Domino calendaring and scheduling in Outlook

These preferences give Outlook client users the ability to set their Time Zone, to
define the hours and days their calendar is made available, as well as the ability
to automatically process specific types of calendar invites.

For example users can automatically accept or decline meeting invitations and
users also have the ability to send automatic responses to invitations from
specific users.

1.6.5 Domino help in Outlook
Figure 1-16 shows the help information installed in to the Outlook client by
DAMO.

The ability to readily access help information from within the Outlook client
significantly improves the end user experience as well as helping to reduce the
number of queries for administrators.

Chapter 2. DAMO architecture


This chapter describes the architecture of DAMO and its key design criteria.

Understanding the DAMO architecture and its design is important as it directly


relates to the end user’s experience of using Outlook with a Domino server back
end.

© Copyright IBM Corp. 2004. All rights reserved. 23


2.1 Detailed DAMO architecture
This section describes the DAMO architecture and the design criteria for DAMO.

2.1.1 Key design criteria for DAMO


The key design criteria for DAMO are:
򐂰 The need to keep the Outlook storage (.PST) file in sync with user’s mail file
on a Lotus Domino server.
򐂰 To use Domino replication as the mechanism between the Outlook client and
Domino.
This is the key architectural component of DAMO, enabling Domino and
Outlook data to be interchanged.
Also, as Domino data is replicated to a local.PST file, which helps to reduce
network bandwidth usage, the Outlook user experiences much faster
performance.
򐂰 Standardization of the installation package and client upgrade. The DAMO
installation program is written using the standard Windows MSI Installer and
as such can be distributed in a multitude of ways and with a multitude of
software distribution tools. Because it is an MSI package, the installation can
also be easily scripted and tailored for an organization’s specific needs.

Note: DAMO has a very small “footprint” on the user’s workstation. The
MSI package itself is approximately 30 MB and once installed, takes up
approximately only 70 MB of additional disc space (not including the
user’s.PST file).

򐂰 The ability to change Domino preferences from within the Outlook client.
DAMO, therefore, adds a new Domino Preferences page to Outlook’s Options
window. This integrated display add-in provides users access to many
Domino features and settings. Some of the many features users can access
from Outlook are:
– Change the password for their Notes ID
– Enable/Disable the Out of Office agent
– Manage replication settings

2.1.2 Overview of DAMO architecture


DAMO acts as an intermediary layer of what can be thought of as a three layer
architecture.

24 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


The first layer is the Outlook client itself which as can bee seen in Figure 2-1 has
not had any of its native code altered. Outlook continues its normal operations by
interacting with its various service providers such as those for accessing its
message store (the .PST file) and its address book.

Figure 2-1 Overview of DAMO architecture

Skipping ahead slightly, the third layer is the Domino server which is now hosting
the user’s mail file. The mail file contains the user’s mail and calendar data that
has been previously migrated from a Microsoft Exchange server (using Domino’s
built-in Domino Upgrade Services tools).

Note: For more detailed information about Domino Upgrade Services, refer to
the redbook Migrating from Microsoft Exchange 5.5 to Lotus Domino 6,
SG24-6955, which can be found at:
http://publib-b.boulder.ibm.com/Redbooks.nsf/RedbookAbstracts/sg246955.html?
Open

The second or middle layer is DAMO itself which acts as the “binding” layer
between the Outlook client and the Domino server.

Chapter 2. DAMO architecture 25


The DAMO layer provides the programming extensions necessary for Outlook
and Domino to interact, a replication layer to handle the synchronization of data
between the Outlook client and the user’s Domino mail file as well as a mapping
module which determines how Domino specific elements map to their
corresponding elements in Outlook.

As the DAMO layer is built up of components that interact with each other, future
DAMO enhancements and features are easier to develop and deploy.

The DAMO layer also provides additional add-ins to allow the Outlook client to
interrogate Domino calendar and scheduling features as well as the add-in that
allows Domino specific preferences to be modified in the Outlook client.

The following sections discuss these modules and layers in greater detail.

2.1.3 The DAMO Extension Manager


The Extension Manager allows an executable program library (a DLL), to register
a callback routine called when Domino performs selected internal operations.

Figure 2-2 The DAMO Extension Manager

26 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


The Extension Manager is used to tie in to the standard, proven and reliable
Domino replication engine.

The Extension Manager interface details notification events and data types and is
exposed in the Domino software development kit.

Exposing the interface in this way allows the Extension Manager to be easily
modified and as future Domino server versions are released and newer features
are added, enhancements can easily be made to DAMO.

2.1.4 The DAMO replication layer


The Replication Layer is the heart of DAMO and acts to bind all the other
components together (whether they be Outlook or Domino components).

The replication layer provides the replication management options provided in


the Outlook client (see Figure 1-14 on page 20) such as the interval for polling for
new mail.

Chapter 2. DAMO architecture 27


The polling interval in the replication layer is optimized to use the mail database
sequence number, therefore there are less transactions and no open database
sessions.

This optimization provides a significant performance improvement for Outlook


users.

The replication layer also controls things such as folder management (create,
delete, rename) as well as “Outlook events” (such as, send mail, send invitation
etc.).

Finally, the replication layer handles the management of local cache information
for things such as read/unread marks. Caching this information locally also
provides significant performance gains for Outlook client users.

2.1.5 The DAMO mapping module


The function of the Mapping Module is to handle the document mapping and
translation between the Outlook client’s mail storage (.PST) file and the Domino
mail file.

For example, a Notes document (e.g., a mail message or calendar invitation) is
“mapped” to and from the corresponding Outlook entry (mail, invite).

The mapping module efficiently itemizes entry properties and document items for
translation and interacts with the replication layer to map them appropriately
when replication occurs.

The mapping module also ensures outgoing Outlook client mail is mapped to the
Domino Mail.box facilitating mail routing. It is also responsible for attachment
support.

Figure 2-5 shows how the mapping module translates and maps items between
Domino and Outlook when replication occurs.

2.1.6 Outlook service providers
The Outlook client’s operations are dictated by “service providers”.

Figure 2-6 Outlook service providers

Service providers are specified in a user profile and include the message store
provider which stores and retrieve messages from the .PST file, the address
book provider for contact information and a transport provider to handle the
sending and receiving of messages.

The DAMO layer hooks in to these standard Outlook providers, thus allowing the
Outlook client to continue with its normal operations, while the components in the
DAMO layer handle the interaction with the Domino server.

For example, DAMO uses its hook to the transport provider to send and receive
messages from the Outlook client via the replication layer (which in turn handles
the synchronization with the Domino server).

Service providers in use
Figure 2-7 gives examples of how some of the other Outlook service providers

Chapter 2. DAMO architecture 31


2.1.7 Add-ins integrate with Outlook
As previously mentioned, the DAMO architecture has been designed in such a
way as to leverage existing Outlook capabilities.

This can be clearly demonstrated by the Free/Busy time and Domino


Preferences add-ins that are installed as part of the DAMO layer.

Figure 2-8 Add-ins integrate with Outlook

These add-ins are seamlessly integrated with the Outlook user interface as
additional items in the Outlook client’s options menu.

Figure 2-9 The Domino Preferences add-in

As can be seen in Figure 2-9 and Figure 2-10 on page 33, the integration of
these add-ins is seamless.

32 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


To Outlook client users, the options and their “look and feel” are familiar and
therefore easy to use.

Figure 2-10 Free/Busy time add-in

These add-ins are designed using the Component Object Model (COM) add-in
architecture and housed in ActiveX DLLs (in-process servers).

The integration of these add-ins with the Outlook client is achieved via the
Outlook object model and the Windows Registry.

Chapter 3. Instant Team Messenger for


Microsoft Outlook
IBM Lotus has been the leading provider of secure and scalable enterprise wide
instant messaging and presence awareness with its IBM Lotus Instant
Messaging product (formerly Sametime). For users of the Microsoft Outlook
client however, it was not possible to leverage Sametime for seamless instant
messaging and presence awareness capabilities. With this release of Domino
Access for Microsoft Outlook, IBM has partnered with Instant Technologies to
address this issue. See:
http://www.instant-tech.com/

In this chapter, we discuss Instant TeamMessenger, the product that provides


both the instant messaging and presence awareness capabilities of Sametime
for use with the Outlook client.

© Copyright IBM Corp. 2004. All rights reserved. 35


3.1 Instant messaging with Microsoft Outlook
For a number of years now, IBM Lotus has been the leading provider of secure
and scalable enterprise wide instant messaging and presence awareness with its
IBM Lotus Instant Messaging product (formerly Sametime).

Microsoft also offers an Instant messaging and presence awareness solution.


However, this involves organizations having to “rip and replace” their entire file
and print infrastructure and upgrade to Windows 2003 Server, as well as
designing and implementing an Active Directory solution. In addition, Microsoft’s
Live Communications Server needs to be deployed and then presence
awareness is only available for Office and Outlook 2003.

For many organizations, it is not feasible to replace an entire network


infrastructure, and every Outlook Client simply to get Instant Messaging and
presence awareness functionality. This effort involves too much disruption, time,
and has a significantly large cost.

IBM has partnered with Instant Technologies to provide the instant messaging
and presence awareness capabilities of Sametime for use with the Outlook
client.

Instant TeamMessenger for Microsoft Outlook supports IBM Lotus Sametime


and the Outlook 2000 client and higher.

Similar to IBM Lotus Domino Server, Sametime runs on a multitude of operating


systems, such as Windows, AIX, and Solaris.

This gives organizations more hardware and software options, together with a
greater level of deployment flexibility, while at the same time helping them to
leverage the inherent scalability, reliability, and performance of many of the
non-Windows based operating systems.

While providing a highly secure and scalable solution, IBM Lotus Sametime also
fully supports the LDAP protocol. This allows organizations to leverage existing
corporate directories with no need to maintain and administer additional user and
group repositories and passwords.

More significantly, by using IBM Lotus Sametime with the Outlook client there is
no requirement to “rip and replace” the underlying operating system. Also,
because Instant TeamMessenger supports Outlook 2000 and higher there is no
need to upgrade the end user’s Outlook client either.

As a result, by using IBM Lotus Instant Messaging with the Outlook client and
Instant TeamMessenger, organizations gain massive total cost of ownership
savings (while having the added benefit of not disrupting end users).

36 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


Similar to DAMO, this Instant TeamMessenger simply installs as a plug-in to the
user’s existing Outlook client.

Note: For more information about Instant TeamMessenger, refer to Instant


Technology’s Web site at:
http://www.instant-tech.com/

Figure 3-1 shows the Who is Online feature that Instant TeamMessenger installs
in to the Outlook client.

Figure 3-1 Who is online feature in Outlook

Presence awareness and user status are available as a simple pop-up.

Figure 3-2 on page 38 shows the user Buddy List that Instant TeamMessenger
installs into the Outlook client.

Chapter 3. Instant Team Messenger for Microsoft Outlook 37


Figure 3-2 Buddy List feature in Outlook with Instant TeamMessenger

The buddy list can be added to manually from a corporate directory (which for
IBM Lotus Sametime can be any LDAP v3 compliant directory), or dynamically by
selecting names from the user’s mail messages.

38 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


Figure 3-3 shows a number of e-mail messages that have been selected by the
user and automatically added to the buddy list.

Figure 3-3 Adding users to the buddy list automatically

Increasingly for legal and compliance reasons, organizations are required to


keep copies of e-mail and instant messages.

IBM Lotus Sametime has the facility to log all chats at the server, however it may
also be convenient for day to day working purposes for users to be able to save
chats locally and retrieve them for future reference.

With Instant TeamMessenger, chat sessions can be stored to the user’s journal.
Aside from being readily available for reference, the chat sessions are also
stored by date and time order.

This can be particularly useful for following the progress of a chat over a period of
time (for example, the status of a current project).

Chapter 3. Instant Team Messenger for Microsoft Outlook 39


Figure 3-4 shows an example of journaled chats stored by date, together with a
meaningful description.

Figure 3-4 Journaling chats

40 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


Instant TeamMessenger also has the ability to show presence awareness for a
user’s contacts as shown in Figure 3-5.

Figure 3-5 Presence awareness for a user’s contacts

Chapter 3. Instant Team Messenger for Microsoft Outlook 41


Instant TeamMessenger does not only function from within a user’s e-mail. It is
also possible for users to add and check presence awareness from within the
Outlook calendar as depicted in Figure 3-6.

Figure 3-6 Presence awareness in the Outlook calendar

3.1.1 Deployment scenarios for Instant TeamMessenger

Attention: The various scenarios in this section refer to both DAMO and
Instant TeamMessenger being installed with the Outlook client.

It should be noted that these products are independent of on another and can
be installed together or individually depending on an organization’s
requirements.

By using IBM Lotus Sametime in concert with Instant TeamMessenger an


organization can very easily leverage the strengths of both the Domino and
Sametime server platforms while continuing to utilize their present file and print
infrastructure and desktop mail client software.

42 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


There is no need to “rip and replace” or change the network operating system or
user’s Outlook client software with the IBM Lotus solution.

Figure 3-7 on page 44 demonstrates this scenario.

The Outlook client user simply logs on to their Windows file server as normal (for
example an NT4 or Windows 2000 server), and through the Single Log On
feature in DAMO is able to access their mail which is now on a Domino server.

With the Instant TeamMessenger software also installed in the Outlook client, the
user also has Instant Messaging and presence awareness available which is now
using the IBM Lotus Sametime server.

Notice how the Domino servers in this scenario are clustered for failover despite
being on completely different operating systems.

Domino clustering allows for active users on both servers and these users can be
any mixture of Notes client, Web Browser or Outlook with DAMO users.

Notice also how the Sametime server is also using a different operating system.

This ability to use a variety of operating systems gives organizations far greater
deployment flexibility than with Microsoft’s instant messaging solution which is
based entirely around migrating to the Windows 2003 and Active Directory
platform.

Chapter 3. Instant Team Messenger for Microsoft Outlook 43


Figure 3-7 Outlook with DAMO and Instant TeamMessenger using Domino mail and Sametime

As with the scenario discussed previously for DAMO (see Figure 1-2 on page 8),
in some instances an organization may want to utilize an existing corporate
LDAP directory for user and group names.

As Domino and Sametime both fully support the LDAP protocol, DAMO and
Instant TeamMessenger could be used in a scenario where an Outlook user’s
mail is stored on a Domino mail server, but the Domino mail server and
Sametime server are both using a corporate LDAP directory for name and group
lookups.

This scenario is described in Figure 3-8 on page 45 .

44 Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook


Figure 3-8 Outlook with DAMO & Instant TeamMessenger using Domino mail and Sametime with LDAP

Note: If the user in this scenario was logging in to Active Directory (as
opposed to say Windows NT) then Active Directory could also act as the
Corporate LDAP directory for both the Outlook client and the Domino /
Sametime servers.

It should also be noted, that the Domino Directory itself can also be used as a
corporate LDAP directory and is frequently deployed by organizations as one.
