I recently purchased a Samsung Omnia Pro Mobile phone. This phone runs Windows Mobile 6.1. I like to stay in touch with colleague’s even when I’m not at the office, so I decided to install Office Communicator Mobile on my phone. The install was easy, and communicator works like a charm.
There was just one interesting issue I had: it seemed I could not log out of communicator. According to colleague’s (thanks Paul :-)) I was online all the time. Even when I closed the communicator task in Windows Mobile, I was online. (can you imagine my surprise when no apps were running according to Windows, but I was online) If I logged my self off in Communicator, it would be a couple of minutes before I appeared online again. (even though Communicator was not running!!!)
Looking around in the options of Communicator I found an interesting option with the label: “Automatically sign me in”. This was turned on for me, and I thought that this would log me on every time I turned on Communicator. This (of course) is not the case, because even if Communicator was not running I would be logged in. Since I turned this option off though, I have not had this thing happen to me anymore. So if anyone is experiencing the same thing, just turn this option off, and you will not be online anymore.
