The IM and call history are not stored in the default Exchange mailbox correctly when you use Office Communicator 2007 R2

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You configure multiple Exchange accounts in an Outlook profile.
  • You configure Office Communicator 2007 R2 to match the default account.
In this scenario, the Instant Message (IM) history and the call history are randomly stored in one of the non-default account mailboxes.

Note This issue also occurs when you configure additional mailboxes in Outlook.
