Skype For Business with Skype Issues

Hello guys!

Today I have a very appetizing mushroom. Perhaps you have had at anytime a problem with your Skype to Skype for Business integration.

If not, please apply it and try again.

Open your client options and go to ‘alerts’. On ‘contacts not using Skype for Business’ menu, check ‘allow anyone to contact me’. The problem will be resolved.

I hope this information will be useful for you.
