Lync Server 2010 features and how to configure them – #Lync

My old colleague and MVP friend Ståle Hansen has put together a great link collection that he just updated with a post from me so I figured I give him a link back…

Now that Lync has gone RTM and Virtual Launch is done we need to get down to business and deploy Lync to the general masses. During the time of Beta, RC and early RTM a lot of great blog articles were published about features and how to configure them. I wanted to collect the posts I find interesting here so I have them all in one place when I deploy Lync Server to my customers. I will update this article with new posts as I find them or when they get published.

The categories are:

Lync Server 2010 Deployment

Exchange 2010 integration

Lync 2010 Client

Lync Phone Edition

The Addressbook in Lync Server 2010

Lync 2010 Networking

SQL Configuration

Mediation server

DNS Loadbalancing

Response Groups


Third Party integrations

Office 365 and UC

Hey hotmail why cant I send meeting requests from Outlook anymore? #Hotmail #Outlook

So I sent a lot of meeting requests to hotmail users and they only get a blank message? That kind of suck!

It used to work but since the last couple of days or weeks it doesn’t anymore?


Any Hotmail experts out there know what I do wrong?
