What is a "SIP Address? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use wss3. When I create a user and then go to "User Information" I see a "SIP Address" field. What is this used for and what am I supposed to do with this field? (Leave it blank? Fill it in with an email address?)

    TIA,

  • Interesting.

    So, in practice, is a SIP address an email address?

  • To display online status, the presence feature uses a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) address to communicate with the instant messaging client. If a SIP address is not available, a .NET address (MSN Messenger) or an Exchange Instant Messaging address (Windows Messenger) can be configured on an individual basis. However, only SIP addresses can take advantage of additional presence features, such as the ability to send and receive e-mail and to display free/busy information from the online status indicator.
