Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2 auto login enternally what not a member of Domain??

Hello,
I personally don't think there is a way to do this externally but I'll ask the questions anyway....
My users are using Office Communicator with Live Communication Server, the Communicator logs in automatically if you are a member of our Domain. But we have about 13 external users who have home offices with a standalone computer locked down using group policy. They are using Outlook Anywhere (RPC over HTTP) and also use the Office Communicator. But they have to login manually. It's not a big problem but it would be nice to have it done automatically when they log into there computers. Does anyone have any experinces with this at all, as it would be most appreaciated.

Many Thanks

Hi,

In OCS 2007 R2 there is an option to save the users password via a registry key chance, I am not sure if this also exists within LCS, if it does it is likely to be the same key.

I have never used the setting so I am unsure if saving their password will automatically log them in, of course it would also fail if they chance their password.

It goes under
Software\Policies\Microsoft\Communicator in either HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE or HKEY_CURRENT_USER

It is a DWORD called SavePassword with a setting of 1 for Save or 0 to not Save.
