Using Lync as a standalone client without integration with Exchange is possible, however there are multiple functions which will not be usable in this case.

  • Presence integration with Calendar infomation in OWA/Outlook
  • Conversation History
  • Voicemail & Missed calls 
  • Auto-Attendant 
  • Personalized Profile Pictures

Please Note: We highly recommend using Lync with our Hosted Exchange services, as this provides the full and advertised functionality.
