It’s now a little bit over 4 years ago since Rasmus created this blog at blogspot, and soon after I joined the work on the blog, and has for the last year been the main contributor for the blog.

Since the blog was started in 2007 we have had 226.000 page views and 25.000 page views every month, which we are very happy for.

For a little over a year ago Rasmus joined the Microsoft Lync Team in Denmark and is now primarily an active blogger on his Danish UC blog, but his great work for the UC community and on this blog still stands.

The design on the blog has been updated, and is now hosted on a WordPress site, which I hope everybody likes.

I will continue to blog about Lync and Exchange when I have something nice to write about it J, and which has already been published by some, of the other great UC bloggers.


Have a nice Christmas and a happy new year.

I have been looking for a way to get Lync Presence information on a public internet site.

The Lync Mobile client for Android can now be downloaded from marketplace.



The Lync Mobile client for Windows Phone 7 is now available at Microsoft marketplace for download.

Clients for iOS, Nokia and Android has been submitted on their respectively marketplace for aproval, so hopeful these users will get there client soon.

Also the push notification service is not working at the moment for WP7 – it seems like Microsoft needs to enable something on the push.lync.com domain. This means that you won’t get any IM’s when Lync Mobile is not open. Hopefully they get it fixed soon.

UPDATE: the push notification is working now.
