  • As it is one of the main functionality in MOC, I don't think it's possible.

  • I don't believe it is possible to disable PC-to-PC IM communication in OCS 2007, as it is the core functinoailty. This has been discussed before in a few threads and we have never found anyway to accomplish it.  It seems some people are looking to use OCS only for Presence, which is an interesting idea but not what MS had in mind for the product, im sure.

  • The only way to do this is to create a custom client using the UC API.

  • Actually, you could also create a server side script that basically blocks all messages that are not presence updates (SERVICE messages).

  • You need the July 2008 Office Communicator update - located here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954439/
