Cool Tip of the Day 61: Receive Phone Calls

With Microsoft® Office Communicator 2007 R2, do the following to receive phone calls:

Answer a phone call

In the phone call invitation alert, click the left pane. The alert appears in the bottom right of your computer screen.

Redirect a call

Click the Redirect button, and then select an option from the menu.  If
you choose to redirect a call to an instant message, a call rejection

    Not sure if you knew this, as I see nothing written, but you can receive a fax to your phone if you don't answer it.  It comes as an attachment on the email.

    And what I have to do when I want to answer call, but I can't see a notification? I'm listening a ring sound, and I can see a simultanious ring on my cell phone, and I can see that icon in the taskbar is flashing, but there is no notification pane on the screen.

    My system environment is 32-bit WIndows 7 Professional on Dell E6500 Laptop with desktop extended on two screens (Laptop and an additional LCD).
