  • If you enabled enterprise voice for lync, you should integrate lync with exchange UM. Lync Server Enterprise Voice uses the Exchange UM infrastructure to provide call answering, call notification, voice access (including voice mail), and auto attendant services. For details, see Features of Integrated Unified Messaging and Lync Server 2010.

  • Hi,

    if you are only talking about Exchange 2010 CAS integration with Lync you're right you will only miss the IM presence with Web App,

    but if you have enterprise voice you should conisder  integrate lync with Exchange 2010 sp1 UM so lync users benefits from voice mail features,

    missed call notifications, directory service, auto attendant, subsriber access to the Mailbox

    The resource kit is the best place to start

    http://blogs.technet.com/b/drrez/archive/2011/06/02/microsoft-lync-server-2010-resource-kit-exchange-um-integration.aspx

    Exchange is used for UM (Voicemail) and you can have IM from the OWA website. The two integrations are optional, separate and not dependant on each other.

    No other voicemail platform is compatible with Lync

  • Hi Tom,

    that´s not completely correct. Of course, you can run lync with other UM platforms, you can just redirect to the UM Tel. number and the UM system sends a mail with mp3 to your mailbox.

    BUT, You wont get the great integration like you get when using Lync with Exchange UM.
