LCS2005 Presence Icon only showing after adding E-mail addresses

  Asked By: Prince    Date: May 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 948

So I have finally figured out why the presence icon was not showing
up for me in Site Settings>>Manage Users. It is because the
corresponding e-mail address was not in the the
http://servername/sitename/_layouts/1033/userinfo.aspx page of each
site. Once I added the e-mail address manually through the page
specified above when I went to Site Settings>>Manage Users>> the
presence icon now shows up fine. Also shows up fine anywhere within
that site where the presence icon should be shown. Now my questions;
is there a way to propagate the Users e-mail from AD into the users
information on all of the sites.
I would like to have it so each time I add a user to a site I don't
have to manually add their e-mail address in the user information
page and their e-mail address is automatically put in when I add them
to the site/workspace. I would hope there is a way so I don't have to
go through each user on the site which is literally hundreds and add
their e-mail in the user info page of each and every site.
Any suggestions in resolution to this matter will be greatly

SPS or WSS? Are you using profile imports?

1. At your AD Server, add  the user's email at the user  profile
2. At the Share Point site  setting -> manage user profile, import the user
