  1. Brilliant! Thank you for saving me a lot of wasted time and frustration. . .. visit- Skype support.

  2. Hello we have been experiencing some issues with this in our environment.

    We have enabled and tested this with 4 users so far. Each one is enabled for EV, has the contact set up as a delegate in Outlook as well. When we delegate the permissions, the delegator receives the group 'Delegates' but the user receiving the rights never receives the 'People who I manage calls for' group and we receive a failure when setting up Skype meetings.

    I have verified all of our clientpolicies are set to enable the exchangedelegatesync (true) yet this doesn't work for some reason. We are running Lync 2013.

    It's like we can set the delegate up but they never receive any sort of permissions on their end.

    HelP! :)
