This summer so far has been an exciting one, and this post in no exception. Another MVP, Loryan Strant has developed a Lync Social Connector for Outlook that will scan an incoming email for Lync Federation and will prompt you if you would like to add them, ignore or block domain to your contact list.
The Social Connector can be downloaded here.
The application is a Outlook plugin that also has a tray icon (hidden by default).
Installation & operation are simple:
- install the Lync Social Connector
- restart Outlook
- when you receive an email from someone who has Lync but isn't on your contact list you will be asked if you want to add them with the options: Yes / No / Ignore User / Ignore Domain
- if you want to stop ignoring a user or domain then right click on the tray icon and select the removal options
Another great Lync program added to another great program!! Lync!!!
