mail file with template enhancements

Up to now my company has been using 9.0.1 on Windows 7. 

Tried a new install on Windows 10, software download only offers IBM Client Application Access which seems like a cut-down notes client that passes all attempts to open users email database onto a web address.

Problem is we have an extensive Lotus Domino intranet which includes extensions to the Notes mail template to integrate email into our intranet.

As an interim solution, searched on part number CIQ7REN which is 9.0.1 for earlier Windows versions and installed that onto Windows 10, works OK so far.

If it will be impossible to run Notes mail databases locally on the full windows client, then we need to migrate our intranet away from Lotus Domino, i.e. start again from scratch. Very big job.  Any roadmap from IBM?

What license do you have?
If Software download isn't showing the full notes client, it mustn't think you own a license?

IBM Domino Collaboration Express

I think IBM Client Application Access is the name for the client on Windows 10. It will open non-mail databases locally and behaves like a notes client in every respect except an attempt to open the mail database is passed off to iNotes.

This does not seem to be configurable. There is a hack to prevent it, I haven't tried, putting garbage in the connection document for the mail file field.   That breaks various other things, as you can imagine.  

How about a check box in the connection document to allow local access??? I gather this won't be allowed because the fat client isn't being provided with policy enforcement capability and this has to be passed off to the server via iNotes so it would need to be authorised maybe in the Domino Directory person document.
