Platforms and requirements for MAPI

The DLLs required for the Windows™ messaging subsystem are available only from Microsoft™. Before you install the Notes® Client, you must install Microsoft Outlook 98 or Microsoft Outlook 2000.

Windows 98

When you install the Notes client, the Domino® MAPI service providers are automatically installed. The required DLLs for the Windows messaging subsystem are already present in Windows 95 and Windows 98.

Windows NT™ 3.51

The Domino MAPI service providers are available for Windows NT 3.51. Since Windows NT 3.51 does not provide the Windows messaging subsystem, you must install the subsystem separately.

Windows NT 4.0

The Domino MAPI service providers are available for Windows NT 4.0. The required DLLs for the Windows messaging subsystem are already present in Windows NT 4.0.

Windows 2000

The Domino MAPI service providers are available for Windows 2000. The required DLLs for the Windows messaging subsystem are already present in Windows 2000.

Note: The Domino MAPI service providers can be installed and used for node installations on all of the previously mentioned Windows platforms.

Mail

The Domino MAPI service providers may only be used to access mail files that use the Domino Designer 6 mail extended template (MAIL6EX.NTF). If you are upgrading from Release 5.x to Domino Designer 6, you must upgrade your mail file to use the mail template provided in Domino Designer 6. To use the service providers, both the client and the server must be running Domino Designer 6.

The Profile Setup Wizard automatically installs all three service providers. When you create a Microsoft Outlook Profile, the wizard uses information stored in the current Location document in Domino. You make modifications to the Office (Network) Location document to configure the location for server-based mail.

To use workstation-based mail, you modify the Local Mail (Disconnected) Location document. Note that the Location type in the local mail document must be either Local Area Network or No Connection. The Mail section of the location document must specify information about the mail file location, the name of the mail file, and the domain.

Note: During logon to the service providers, the settings for MDB_NO_DIALOG and AB_NO_DIALOG flags are ignored. As a result, the user is always prompted for a password.

Address Book template

To access Domino Directories through the Address Book Provider, you must apply the Domino Directory template (PUBNAMES.NTF) to the design. If you are using workstation-based mail, apply the Personal Address Book template (PERNAMES.NTF) to the design of the Personal Address Books.
