Seems like a reasonable request to me. Perhaps someone has already done this and would like to help Scott in his evalutaion?
Hi Eric-Scott, I'm going to post your question to my blog in the hopes that someone may have the answer you seek...
I am making the decision to use either Notes or Outlook on my home computer without a network or shared users.
Your blog was fantastic but I fear many of the points raised as to the differences may not be relevent since many posters were using the older versions of both Outlook and Notes.
Is there a way to compare both products based on the latest versions of both only?
I accumulate a lot of messages with attachments and currently have about fifteen folders that I sort my incomming messages into. I understand Notes uses just a single data file and I am worried about the size of it since it also includes the attachments. Do you see a problem with a total msg count of a few hundred thousand messages. How bout a million or more ? ( that is what I will have if I can import my old messages from Netscape Communicator 4.6 )
This comparison is very difficult as I cannot get anyone at IBM or Microsoft to answer technical questions and I sure would hope I could shortcut the choice by some means other than buying and learning both.
BTW, would you know where I could go to see about conversion tools to import my messages from the Netscape 4.6 ?

We need a good Notes <> Outlook comparison. As far as import tools from Netscape, nothing quickly comes to mind but I'm sure it's been done.
I hope this blog post helps
