trying to get outlook to dial out using the shoretel tapi drivers that i have installed and failing.
outlook accesses the shoretel and makes the call but its not sticking in the 9 to make an external call.

i believe there is a outlook dialer available from shoretel now. also a web dialer.
Last i checked the TAPI method had been deprecated.
