In our complex world, your Notes email may be read using another email system; you need to be confident it will be accessible.
Many emails contain doclinks, created by applications or users, and those doclinks must work even if the recipient has Microsoft Outlook or Gmail or a generic web mail. CoexLinks will convert doclinks based on your needs to a format accepted by any recipient.
Don't rewrite applications or retrain users. CoexLinks will even convert automatic approval links created by a third party application without any modification or upgrade to the application.
Configure CoexLinks to send NDL files, Notes URL's or HTTP URL's, all without agents, scripts or on-going administration. Once configured, it just works. You may even forget CoexLinks is there.
The complexities of collaboration and coexistence, made a little bit simpler.

|"Our company has many Lotus Notes\Domino workflow applications that notify users of pending approvals through emails containing Lotus Notes doclinks. When the decision was made to migrate off Lotus Notes email to Exchange email, we needed to find a quick and easy solution to enable our users to access the workflow documents easily within Outlook. Genii's CoexLinks was the perfect solution. It converts our workflow doclinks into attachments that our Outlook users launch to access Lotus Notes documents with the Lotus Notes client." - Aroon Mital, Samsung SDS America.|
Frequently Asked Questions about CoexLinks
1) Do I have to change the design of my applications to use CoexLinks?
No. CoexLinks runs as a plug-in, invisibly making changes under the level of the individual databases, with absolutely no code changes required. This makes it very easy to install, and allows it to work with third party packages which may send doclinks as part of an approval process or news distribution process. These third party packages cannot be altered, so it is important that CoexLinks does not require code changes.
2) Is CoexLinks easy to install and configure?
Yes. Installation is simply the addition of a single DLL (shared library on UNIX systems) and a license file, both in the same directory as your Domino server software. Configuration is almost as simple, requiring the addition of a few lines in your NOTES.INI file. After that, CoexLinks runs as part of the Domino server software. If you still are not sure, watch the flash demo CoexLinks: Working doclinks in Outlook in two minutes which shows the full installation process.
The additional components, CoexLinks Fidelity and CoexLinks Clipper, are just as easy to add. CoexLinks Fidelity requires a single additional line in the NOTES.INI file on your Domino server, while CoexLinks Clipper requires a similar installation for your Notes client.
3) Does CoexLinks use any unsupported calls that might cause trouble in future versions?
No. CoexLinks is written using completely standard and portable calls in the C API toolkit, along with manipulation of structures defined in the C API headers. This doesn't mean it was easy to write, just that all calls and structures are guaranteed by IBM not to change, thus ensuring reasonable upward compatibility.
4) Is CoexLinks tied to a particular version or point release of Domino 6.5/7/8/8.5.x?
No. CoexLinks should work with all versions and point releases in Domino 6.5 to Domino 8.5.x without any alteration. Obviously, feature releases such as 9 would require re-testing before they could be certified as supported.
5) Does CoexLinks need to be installed on every server?
No. CoexLinks is designed to handle every mail message which is created on or routed through a server. Thus, it is usually installed on every server which sends SMTP mail to the Internet or to another email system such as Microsoft Exchange, referred to in CoexLinks documentation as "gateway servers". In addition, CoexLinks is sometimes installed on application servers that send a lot of mail as this can take the load off the gateway servers. Email processed by CoexLinks on one server will not be re-processed by CoexLinks on a subsequent server, so load balancing may be planned by looking at the entire network. These architectural decisions help to minimize licensing cost while maximizing the efficiency of the network.
CoexLinks Fidelity works with CoexLinks, and sso would be installed on the same servers. CoexLinks Clipper works on IBM Lotus Notes clients under Windows, so if you choose to use that utility, it would need to be installed on those clients.
6) Will CoexLinks redirect my mail to my new address?
No. All routing and redirection should be handled by the normal Notes/Domino mechanisms, in this case by adding a name to the forward eMail Address field in the Person document of the Domino Directory. CoexLinks is only responsible for converting links, not any other routing or redirection.
7) How quickly will CoexLinks pay for itself?
That depends entirely on your Notes/Domino applications and what the cost of not having such a solution would be. With even one major Notes/Domino application which uses links as part of a workflow, you can save the whole cost almost instantly simply by not having to modify or migrate the application.
8) Do you have local support in [name that region]?
Yes and no. Our main offices are in Cleveland, OH in the United States, and we have a support center in the United Kingdom as well, but support is available all over the world. With customers in 46 countries, we are very familiar with the issues in supporting companies in different locales. When a problem arises, our developers and support staff are prepared to deal with it no matter where the customer resides.
9) How do I know Genii Software will still be there next week or next year?
There are never any absolute guarantees, but Genii Software has been around since 1994, and providing Notes solutions and supporting Notes customers since 1995. While bigger companies have failed with the dot com bust or simply through overreaching, we have stayed strong and grown by focusing on our areas of expertise and by never forgetting the customer.
