"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Then it is confirmed, this is the default.
That is not the default behavior of Office Communicator, it should only be happening if there is a missing component (no Exchange Server 2007 or Outlook 2007 deployed) or something is incorrectly configured.
