  • Hello,

    I just found a new bug with the MS Communicator version 2007 R2. When i add a contact to my list then that alert/message is not displaying in other end if the OS version differs each other. And alert will be displayed immediately after next time login.

    It has really disappointed me :(   - to some extent

    One thought: I feel live object remains the same regardless of the OS version. I hope inter OS will not be a issue if you are raising the alert through Events and Delegate mechanism so i think there might be some issue before raising the event in this case.

    This fix will really help many users since by that time only they can come to know whether recipient accepted or rejected the request.

    Thanks Shradha, for making MS to know their issue without your knowledge. (if it is not a open issue).
