Outlook Notification?

In Microsoft Outlook 2007, how do I set up a notification when a contact is available?

I know that this is possible, because I had it set up at my old job. whenever my boss returned to his desk, a pop-up window came up telling me that she was available. I have looked everywhere, but i can no longer find this option. Does anyone know where this is?

Best answer: I think that's only available if you're using Office Communicator now called Microsoft Lync and/or Microsoft Office Communications Server. Is the place your at now set up with that?

It's been a while since I looked at this part of the MCSE, I might be rusty, but I think I'm on the right track.

There "might" be a little integration with Windows Live Messenger - but most companies frown on using that as it is not "IT-controllable".
