What are the more commonly seen file extensions used by IBM Notes?

For a variety of purposes, such as Anti-virus exclusion or scripting, it may be necessary to know all or at least the majority of the file extensions that Notes uses. This document has a list and the purpose of some of the more commonly used ones.
