WHAT TO DO? –
Between now and June 30, 2014, you do not need to do anything to continue to support federated communications between your organization and AIM.
For customers requiring connectivity between Lync and AIM beyond June 2014 or your organization requires provisioning for additional domains in the interim, a substitute service is available directly from AOL.
