You can use the 2007 R2 version of Microsoft® Office Communicator Web Access to add users both inside and outside your organization to your Contact List.

Contacts outside your organization must use a supported public instant messaging (IM) service provider or be a user of an organization that is federated with your organization.

  1. In the Search box, type the display name or e-mail address (required for contacts outside your organization) of the person whom you want to add, and then press ENTER.
  2. In the results area, right-click the name of the person whom you want to add, click Add to Contact List, and then click the group to which you want to add the contact.

Add a distribution group to the Contact List
In the Search box, type the name or e-mail address of the distribution group you want to add, and then press ENTER.

  1. In the results area, right-click the name of the distribution group, and then click Add to Contact List.

Set access levels
Access levels let you decide what information to show a contact.  It also allows you to block someone from contacting you through Communicator.

  • In the Contact List, right-click the name of the contact whose access level you want to change, click Change Level of Access, and then click the level.
