Matthias Schneider and Andreas Schulte
have contributed a new project - De-Mail
for IBM Lotus Notes.
Exchanging legal electronic documents
between citizens, agencies, and businesses over the Internet - De-Mail
makes this possible. This German E-Government communications service could
help to reduce communication costs of administration and companies. It
is currently (August 2012) provided by a set of accredited De-Mail providers:
- Deutsche Telekom AG
- Mentana-Claimsoft GmbH
- T-Systems International GmbH
With Lotus Notes/Domino, IBM provides
an integrated collaboration platform that also includes e-mail functionality.
Notes could be integrated with additional collaboration capabilities including
chat, voice and video conferencing, blogs and microblogs, forums and file
The new De-Mail Addin for Lotus Notes,
which could be downloaded from OpenNTF, extends this set of Notes capabilities
by providing an easy integration of De-Mail capabilities into Lotus Notes.
Using these extensions, a Notes user could send and receive legally binding
e-mails with just a few clicks. This enables companies to establish new
ways of communication with their partners and customers using De-Mail technology.
