  • Not sure if the process has changed from LCS 2005 SP1, but normally once a company submits for PIC provisioning, all users that have registered their corporate email address with a Passport account will recieve the following email:

     

    Microsoft® .NET Passport Holder,

     

    ** Action Recommended by September 8th, 2007 **

     

    You have been identified as having a Microsoft .NET Passport email address that ends in xyz.com.

       

    Please read on if you use an xyz.com Passport address for the .NET Messenger service using either MSN® Messenger or Windows® Messenger. If you do not, you may ignore this message.

     

    1. If you want to continue using .NET Messenger service, you must change the email address associated with your .NET Passport account to a new domain.
    2. If you attempt to use .NET Messenger service after September 8th, 2007, and you have not changed the email address associated with your .NET Passport account then you will be prompted to do so at that time.

     

    To change the email address associated with your .NET Passport account to either a new Hotmail account, or an address ending in @messengeruser.com, please visit the following web page:  http://g.msn.com/5meen_ms/95

    Suggestion:  If you wish to use another email address then those suggested above, or have additional questions about Microsoft .NET Passport, please visit the Microsoft .NET Passport Member Services web page: http://memberservices.passport.net/memberservice.srf.

     

     

    Please do not reply to this email. This is a non-monitored e-mail address and you will not receive a response.

     

     

    Ultimately, the email causes great confusion but requires little end-user action.  I have made it a point to communicate to the user community what to expect and that has helped reduce help desk calls.

  • There shouldn't be any issues with the same registered name as MSN has its own mechanism for user registrations.

     

    More over your Internal users will be coming from Edge to outside to MSN and MSN would be intelligent enough to identify it.

  • Thanks!

     

    I guess that it will be solved the way that you describe Rob.

    Can anyone confirm that this is the process even for OCS 2007?

    Hi

     

    We have registered for PIC last August and at that moment it was still like Rob says. Our request was delayed a lot since Microsoft was in the middle of upgrading to OCS as they were telling us. In fact, we had to reapply, and then it was done within three weeks.
