Last month I wrote a blog about connecting Office 2011 for Mac to Office 365. This post generated a lot of interest within the community, but mostly for the wrong reason! i.e pretty much everyone that tried this was unable to connect Lync 2011 on Mac to Office 365.
The Lync engineering team have been working with a number of customer escalations and those of us with working test environments and non working environments.
Well, I am pleased to announce that the team have finally produced a fix for this and its available for download here…
“This update resolves an issue for users of Mac OS X 10.7.2 (Lion) that causes Microsoft Lync for Mac 2011 to close unexpectedly when you sign in. This update also resolves an issue that prevents users from signing in to Office 365. This update is required for all users who use Lync for Mac 2011 with Office 365. ”
I hope that this fixed the issues being experienced previously and now EVERYONE can enjoy Lync 2011 o Mac
Now we just need the possibility to add Live Messenger contacts to Lync so I can replace the ad-supported Messenger completely by Lync and we would be VERY happy :) Love Office 365, currently in trial phase but we will purchase soon!
