What I did was to create an agent in Lotus script, and put it on the
server. This agent forwards every Notes mail to the POP server and retain
the Notes copy too. Once the message is received from the POP server, I
pass it through the MDA filters and get the original format back. ( No grphics ).
File attachments remain fine.

The only problem, with such setup is for large Notes files, fetchmail can
easily timeout, before completing the retrieval.
