IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook, V2.0 available for download

A new era has come :-)

IBM Mail support for Microsoft Outlook (the software formerly Known As IBM Project Hawthorn ) is available for download !

At this page  you can found the announcement letter with more info like the following :

  • Mail
  • Compose
  • Send/Receive messages
  • Draft sync
  • Quota indicator
  • Summary sync
  • Folder support
  • Notes encryption
  • Calendar
  • Freebusy lookup
  • Room finder
  • Contacts
  • Client-wide features
  • Search
  • Automatic client updates
  • Automatic send and or receive on network connection
  • Offline support
  • Out of the office support
Below the client system requirements
  • Microsoft Outlook 2013 32-bit or Microsoft Office 32-bit with Service Pack 1 and the Office 2013 cumulative update for April 2014.
  • A Microsoft Windows release supported by Outlook 2013.
Below the client part number
  • Win 32/64 CND43ML 

Below the Release notes: 
  • CNCZ9EN 

And last the server part numebers:

  • IBM mail Add-on 2.0.0 (for IMSMO) Linux 64 Multilingual (CNBK8ML )
  • IBM mail Add-on 2.0.0 (for IMSMO) AIX 64 bit Multilingual (CNBK7ML ) 

Server system requirements (IMSO must be installed on Domino 9.0.1 FP6 IF1) :

Note: The IMSA server should follow the Domino best practice of upgrading to the latest on-disk structure (ODS); as of Domino 9.0.1 (and subsequent fixpacks), the latest version is ODS52. Additional information can be found in this technote: Update to "Domino On-Disk Structure" for Domino 9.0.1: ODS52

Don't skip the features and limitation page.
I haven't installed yet the on premise server release of IMSMO but I've worked and tested the client side using my corporate account on IBM Connections cloud instance and is working well.

IMHO the right and best way to work in 2016 should be IBM Verse + ICAA 1.0.1 for Notes legacy application but IBM support for Microsoft Outlook could be a nice feature that could be preferred in some case .
