On the other hand, Microsoft Outlook is not just an email client application but also a personal information manager.
Both the applications are commonly used for mailing purpose. The major difference between them is the files used by these applications for storing mailbox data. Lotus Notes stores email messages, calendar data and other business information in Notes storage Facility format, called NSF database.
