Skype presence information not visible in Outlook

Hi,

When you install Microsoft Skype on a Windows-based computer that has Microsoft Lync installed, you experience one or more of the following issues:

Microsoft Outlook does not display presence information.
The Microsoft SharePoint client does not display presence information.
Other Microsoft Office applications that support presence features do not display presence information

This behavior may occur if the value of the DefaultIMApp registry entry in the following registry key is incorrect:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\IM Providers

Note The DefaultIMApp registry entry specifies which IM application provides IM and presence information in Office applications. When you install the Lync 2010 client together with Microsoft Office, the value of the DefaultIMApp registry entry is updated to “Communicator.”  Or, if you install the Lync 2013 client together with Microsoft Office, the value of the DefaultIMApp registry entry is updated to “Lync.”
To work around this issue, follow the steps that are appropriate for the version of Windows that you are running.

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7

Exit the Skype client and all Office applications.
Click Start, click Run, type regedit.exe, and then click OK.
Locate the following registry entry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\IM Providers\DefaultIMApp registry value
Right-click DefaultIMApp, and then click Modify.
Type Skype in the Value data box, and then click OK.
Exit Registry Editor, and then restart  the Skype client and the Office applications.

Windows 8

On the Start screen, click the Search tile.
Type regedit in the Search window and then double-click regedit.exe.
Locate the following registry entry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\IM Providers\DefaultIMApp registry value
Right-click DefaultIMApp, and then click Modify.
Type Skype in the Value data box, and then click OK.
Exit Registry Editor, and then restart  the Skype client and the Office applications

Hope this helps

A friendly chap called Tomas (who I think is from the Czech Republic) recently asked if its possible to schedule the “Enable disabled users for Lync script” I wrote about here:

Well the answer is yes, basically add   //b  and take out the pause at the end then go into task scheduler in Windows and set it up:

Lync 2010 Disabled Users – Enabled them on Lync 2010

Lync 2010 / 5 Comments

Hi All,

We use linked mailboxes within the company I work in as we’re too lazy to finish a AD/Exchange migration.  Now as you’ll know linked mailboxes need to have a disabled mailbox in AD to work….

Well a while ago we needed to install Lync 2010 and being proactive we installed the Lync sever on the new domain…then we realised that Lync 2010 cant natively work with disabled accounts.

So having a butchers about on the Internet we found this script to enable disabled users in a certain OU to use Lync 2010.  The script uses SIDMAP.WSF to synchronize the msExchMasterAccountSid attibute to the msRTCSIP-OriginatorSid attribute on the  SIP-enabled disabled user account.

So just for clarity, SIP enable the account through the Lync 2010 control panel, then run this batch script:
