Notes is infinately more powerful than Outlook. Scripting, workflow,
databases, knowledgebases, group collaboration, surveys, discussion
boards, etc.

If you are looking for a mail reader, than Outlook wins. If you are
looking for an information management environment, Notes walks away.

I had a contract at a "Known-Name" company, in a department with 70
Notes programmers. Program is deep. Don't fight it...embrace it.
