Unfortunately, nor am I - I'm not at all familiar with Notes, and don't have
it here to test things out.

What version of Notes is it?  Researching a little, it appears that the
names of things changed at one point, so this might be the problem.

I presume you have the pywin32/win32all extensions installed (since
otherwise it would have died earlier) - you could try opening up PythonWin,
choosing "COM makepy Utility" from the Tools menu, finding Lotus Notes in
the list and running that.  It should give you a "Generating to ...
00020813-0000-0000-C000-000000000046x9x1x0.py" message (with a different
name than that).  That might (a) fix things, or (b) give more clues about
what to do next.

I hope we can get it going :)  Maybe TimS will pipe up and help out...(but
I'm not sure he follows this list at the moment).

Not having Notes, I can't do any at all, so am completely reliant on others,
so that would be great.
