On-Premises Exchange Unified Messaging Integration
Topic Last Modified: 2011-05-15
Microsoft Lync Server 2010 supports integration with Exchange Unified Messaging (UM) for combining voice messaging and email messaging into a single messaging infrastructure. Exchange Unified Messaging (UM) is one of several server roles that you can install and configure on a computer that is running Microsoft Exchange. For Lync Server Enterprise Voice deployments, Unified Messaging combines voice messaging and email messaging into a single store that is accessible from a telephone (Outlook Voice Access) or a computer. Unified Messaging and Lync Server work together to provide call answering, Outlook Voice Access, and auto-attendant services to users of Enterprise Voice.
For these features to be supported in an on-premises Exchange UM deployment, you must be running one of the following:
Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or latest service pack
Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 or latest service pack
