Installing HCL Traveler for Microsoft Outlook

HCL Traveler for Microsoft Outlook (HCL mail client) provides the code you need to access your HCL Notes® mail with Microsoft Outlook.

Before you begin

Note: Your administrator may have installed the mail client for you. To check whether the client is installed, open the Windows Control Panel, then open the list of installed programs. If you see HCL Traveler for MS Outlook, the client is installed and you can ignore this topic and continue to the procedure Configuring a Microsoft Outlook profile for HTMO.
Also note the following information:
  • Before you install the mail client, make sure you comply with the Client requirements.
  • Your administrator provides you access to the installation file, if the client isn't installed for your automatically.
  • Personal firewalls might need to be temporarily disabled, or be properly configured to allow the mail client installation to complete.
  • To install requires administrator account access to your computer.
  • The mail client requires that the following software be installed.
    • Microsoft .NET framework 4.5.2
    • Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO)
    This software is usually part of the standard Microsoft Office and Microsoft Outlook installation. However, if it isn't installed on your system, the mail client installer will install it for you before installing the mail client. To install this software, your computer must be able to connect to the Internet.
  • If you are migrating from IMSMO to HTMO, installation of the HTMO client causes the old IMSMO client to be uninstalled automatically.


To install the mail add-in, run the HCL_client.exe file that your administrator provided to you. Follow the installation instructions. For information about troubleshooting installation problems, see Troubleshooting tips.
