Thanks - I found the tutorials, but I will check out the forums as well.

They aren't totally committed to Domino yet, but they do have an investment 
in the software and their outside consultant is a Notes/Domino 
developer.  I suspected from my experience with asp/sql and php/mysql that 
they would be more powerful.  The tech savvy partner of the company is 
leery of Microsoft systems (and even more so because we got hit with the 
backdoor.trojan and sasser because the system wasn't patched regularly).

Thanks again for all the info!
