Providing a secure enterprise mail solution trusted by governments and regulated industries has always been an essential mission for HCL Domino. Trusted by 40% of the Fortune 500, Domino is the backbone of corporate communications and powers our customers’ workflow applications that run their business.
In every Domino release, we have continued to invest in the core platform for apps and mail. This includes our own desktop, web and mobile clients, plus open client options such as Apple Mail. Here, we provide an update on the progress we’ve made and what’s coming.
Here are examples of the improvements we’ve made to both HCL Verse and HCL Notes. If you’ve not seen these before, please contact your BP or HCL sales representative for more information on upgrading so you can take full advantage of this more modern experience.

Based on feedback from our community, here’s a summary of our Domino mail portfolio and our product plans for the next 3 years:

HCL Verse Mobile
Traveler (Apple Mail)
Recently, Microsoft announced an initiative to consolidate its Outlook clients and mail protocols. In addition, they announced the deprecation of the Exchange Web Services (EWS) protocol and API and its M365-based replacement that even Exchange on-premises customers will need to use.
Due to the change in Microsoft’s protocol, and since most of the Domino customer base are Windows users, HCL has decided to invest in HCL Microsoft for Outlook (HTMO) to provide the open mail experience rather than continuing to develop EWS support. Specifically, our plan to deliver support for Outlook on Mac and Mobile under Project Quattro has ended. Consequently, in subsequent HTMO releases, we’ll focus on improving the ease of installation, performance, stability, and provide calendar feature parity with Notes and Verse where applicable.
As always, HCL Digital Solutions is fully committed to the Domino community and our customers. We value your feedback, so please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or submit your ideas to Aha. Thank you for your support.
