If I have a Skype for Business Online account  most folks reach me by a regular 10 digit telephone number.
But should people be able to reach me also at a sip address like sip://joebob@acme.com?

Hi amigan_99,

Yes, as specified in the SIP URI scheme, it will open a chat dialogue in Skype for Business, but drop the "//" and verify your SIP address in the Email Address section in your Exchange Online account. It should be the same as your UPN & SMTP if configured properly. It should be Type=SIP Address=user@domain.com thus the syntax should be
sip:user@domain.com

Open in new window

or tenant ID (if on Office 365) will work too
sip:user@tenant.onmicrosoft.com

Open in new window

Hope that helps!
