    Anyway to turn Inline Images off? I know some people are going to want to do that.

  5. @Jon – unfortunately at this time there is no way to turn these off.

  6. Matt says:

    Has anyone been experiencing issues with Lync after the update?  Lync is now unstable on my system, Windows 8.1 with Office 365.  Lync is using on average 30% CPU and fluctuates between not responding and active.  Basically it's unusable now.
