My company is currently federated with AIM, Yahoo, MSN and Gtalk.  Is there a way for a user to import their buddy list from lets say yahoo and appear to be that user to all the Yahoo buddies.


In other words if my yahoo account name is matt@yahoo.com, is there a way for me to import all my buddies from Yahoo into Lync and somehow map matt@yahoo.com to my Lync account (matt@company.com) so all my buddies see me as matt@yahoo.com when talking to them via Lync?

I personally have never heard of a way to successfully do this.  Let me investigate a bit, but off hand I would say no.

Apparently there is a very expensive way to accomplish this.  So short answer is yes it can be done, but at a extreme cost.

Everyone stated there was not a way, but there in fact is.
