I know its slightly convoluted but......

1. Use an Outlook client to connect to your notes mail server (go to
control panel - mail and you should find the Lotus Notes option.

2. Drag and drop the mail into a local folder. This can be done in one
go by selecting all the messages.

3. Forward the mail to new server

et voila!

We did this when moving from Notes to Exchange (Don't ask! I know its a
backward step!).

As would I. I'm stuck with mail archived to Notes .nsf files, and
would absolutely *love* a way to convert them into headers-and-body
in just about any recognized mail format.
