Lync 2010 - How to disable the saving of Lync contacts in personal contacts via GPO
Posted on 2011-02-17
With lync, by default there is an option to Save Lync contacts into the personal contacts folder on the exchange server. This can be turned off from the user options. What I am looking for is a method to turn this off and possibly disable this feature for all our domain users via GPO or some other solution.
We use a public folder for company contacts for a sync up with our blackberries. This copy into personal contacts is creating duplicate contacts for the end users, and an inability for me to update employee contact info for everyone on the fly if people have old contacts with possibly bad phone numbers, etc...
