Making URLs clickable in Microsoft Office Communicator 2005 and 2007

By default URLs are not clickable in Communicator. However you can apply the following registry tweak to make them clickable and launch them in your default browser.

Steps are as follows:
 1. Open registry editor and go to the following registry entry:
     HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Communicator

2. Add the following key to above mentioned entry
     EnableURL (Type:DWORD), value can be either 0 (URL will appear as plain text) or 1 (makes URL clickable)

Now close the registry editor and restart Microsoft Office Communicator 2007, URLs should now be clickable. Administrators can control values of this feature via group policy settings.
