The 7.0.1 release notes support statement reads as follows:
"The Notes Client is supported on Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server 3.0 and 4.0, on Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition server, using ICA 1 clients.
1Citrix ICA stands for Citrix® Independent Computing Architecture. It is the "thin" protocol that enables Citrix to separate screen updates and user input processing from the rest of the application’s logic. When using a Citrix ICA client, all application logic executes on the server and only screen updates, mouse movements and keystrokes are transmitted via the Citrix ICA session."

Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 is a supported configuration for the Lotus Notes 8.0.1 client (Standard and Basic Configuration) using the Notes Single User Install method. Refer to "Steps for installing Lotus Notes 8 on a Citrix Presentation server" ( #1265898).
Note: Support has found a issue when using a Single User install of Lotus Notes 8.0 and 8.0.1. This problem has been reported as SPR# TMDS7B5SCY and is fixed in 8.0.2 Fix Pack 1 and 8.5.
