Launching Sametime 7.5.1 kicks off the Outlook 2007 Startup

Not any more!

Thanks to the solutions in this post from Carl:

  1. Change the default mail program under external programs to be explicitly Lotus Notes.
  2. Go into the advanced settings (Tools/Plugins/Manage Plugins from the Connect Client), and find and disable the “Sametime Exchange” feature.
  3. Rename OutlookJNI.dll in the following directory:
c:\program files\IBM\sametime connect\plugins\com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.exchange.win32.x86_7.5.1.20070416

Suggestion #1 wasn’t enough to stop it, but one of either #2 or #3 did the job.

This was starting to really bug me, I was having to click “Cancel” and the “Yes I am sure” prompt twice!

  2. #2 does the trick. I raise my glass to Carl and Simon, not only for discovering a method but also for keeping it handy in Google. Skoal!
