    Before using this method, I use manual method to import NSF files which take longer time. Now I just need to select the files and boom!! these are open in front of me and ready to be modified. I normally compose my papers with the help of website and keep them in NSF format to avoid malfunction of the program.


    Manual Solution No. 1
    It is a multi-staged process—first, export NSF emails to CSV file format using the Export option in IBM Notes. Then, import this CSV file to the Outlook application using its Import/Export feature. Now, the NSF file data is saved in PST file format, which can be uploaded to Office 365 utilizing its Mailbox Import Export feature and Azure AzCopy application.

    Manual Solution No. 2
    It includes a sequence of operations like creating new mailboxes in Office 365, enabling IMAP TCP/IP Port, using Domino Administrator in IBM Notes, and finally synchronizing IBM Notes and Office 365 mailboxes with the help of IMAP connector.

    Hope this helps you,
