  • Question

  • We are on Lync 2010 Client and using Outlook 2010.  We have a user that gets voicemail messages as a MP3 attachment instead of showing the player in the message.  How can we get it back?

  • Is this only affecting a single user?  If so, then it sounds like the Outlook Exchange UM add-in is disabled.  This can happen if Outlook becomes unresponsive and is forced closed.  To re-enable add-ins within Outlook 2010, go to File -> Options -> Add-ins

    Under the drop down menu, select "Disabled Items" and Click "Go"

    Select the Add-in called "UmOutlookAddin.dll" and click "Enable".  You may need to close and re-open Outlook.

  • Phil Sharp is right.

    I use outlook 2013. When I disabled Microsoft Exchange Add-in for outlook. I got the voicemail message as MP3 attachment. I think the Add-in name is similar for Outlook 2010.

  • Hi, I thought that was it as well and I think there is something to this about the add-in being broke, but this user doesn't have the add-in disabled.  And it is only a problem in her profile.  I logged in as another user on the same computer and the add-in functions normally.

    Even though it's not disabled, the add-in is not visible/functioning properly.  What I mean is like the "Play on Phone" item located on the ribbon bar in a voicemail message is also not present. 

    I'd like to avoid recreating the users profile....  Just odd this is happening, would like to find what is doing this...

  • When you say the issue is specific to the user's profile, are you referring to the Outlook profile or the Windows profile?  I can understand not wanting to recreate the Windows profile, but that may be your only option.

  • Sorry for not responding sooner, it is the Windows profile, not the Outlook profile...  Yeah, I think that's what I'll have to try....  Thanks, Pam
