Launch the Lync 2011 for Mac client
The first time you sign in, enter your firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
Lync will automatically populate this field the next time you launch it.
Enter the password you use for the email address entered in Step 2.
If you would like Lync to save your password, check the “Save my password” box
Click Sign In
We recommend that you leave Lync 2011 for Mac running all the time, the same way most people leave their email running all the time. The interface makes it easy to start an instant messaging session, switch to another mode (like a video call), and bring in other participants as needed.
