anyone know how to break this integration?
right now the only "feature" it offers is that IF i get an email from a contact who is also on skype, from Outlook i can see if they're online or not.

the problem it causes is that Outlook always wants to use Skype as its default dialer, and i want it to dial through TAPI. when Skype is closed, this works fine.

using Skype 6.1.32

Have you tried going in Outlook to File>Otions>Add-Ins and disable it here. If you click on the "GO" radio button at the bottom, it give you the option to disable it. You might also check the Trust Center at the bottom of the Options.

I checked - skype isn't listed in any add-ins or the trust center. i assume since microsoft owns it they don't feel the need to list it.
