Lotus Releases Beta of Web-Based Notes Application

Lotus Development announced on Monday the availability of the beta version of iNotes Web Access, a browser-based Web client that supports Notes replication.

The application gives users access to Domino messaging, e-mail, collaboration, personal and company information via a current Web browser, said Amy Caton, a Lotus spokeswoman. The iNotes system allows users to work offline and then synchronize the changes with a server running Domino. The iNotes Web client replaces Lotus' WebMail client, which only supports offline access to e-mail.

Lotus in January promised a midyear ship date for iNotes Web Access, but Caton said the commercial version won't ship until the first quarter of 2001. The beta-test version supports Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher and Netscape 4.7.

Lotus targets iNotes at small to medium-sized businesses, companies looking to standardize browser-based access for their workforce, ASPs (application service providers), and companies seeking to provide complementary access, Caton said.

Licenses for iNotes for the Web, for Outlook and Domino Off-Line Services are expected to be about $US50 per user.
