Earlier IBM Notes used to be a popular email client for business users as it provided high end security but in is recent past days we had seen a fall in its usage.
On the other hand MS Outlook has expanded its area and its one of the most popular email clients for business as well as for normal users due to its user friendly interface and rich features.
If you had worked on IBM Note or Lotus Notes and looking to transfer yourself to MS Outlook then you will find it very difficult to migrate your Notes databases, Notes address ect. Lotus Notes used NSF file format while MS Outlook use PST files to store your data.
