The Red Bang (Exclamation Mark) that appears in the Office Communicator Notifications region (top right corner) can indicate one of several different underlying problems.
Communicator uses the Red Bang to notify you that something needs your attention. Clicking on that button opens a menu listing errors or other notifications. Common causes of the red bang are missed calls/instant messages, Outlook integration errors, and address book synchronization (ABS) errors. In this post, I will focus on the Outlook integration and ABS errors.
I hope you’ve never encountered any Outlook Integration or ABS errors and will never have to worry about troubleshooting the notification messages hidden behind the red bang. If you have, please try the tips I’ve mentioned above. Fingers crossed – let’s hope the red bang goes away!
