Lotus Preps Thin-Client Offering

On Monday in the US Lotus Development Corp. will launch a family of thin-client software that will make offerings such as Microsoft Outlook, Eudora, and any other POP3 compliant e-mail clients compatible with Domino servers.

Called Lotus iNotes, the new Lotus client software will replace Lotus' existing line of Web mail products and will bring much of the functionality of the traditional 32-bit Windows client offering to these platforms.

A possible boon for users, iNotes will allow users to interact with e-mail residing on a Domino server from a home system, instead of having to carry a laptop system to and from the office each day.

Scheduled to ship in early 2001, the initial version of iNotes will be optimized for Windows clients running Internet Explorer, with a version for Netscape 4.7 due shortly thereafter.
