Login directly to Live Meeting using a BPOS account

Suppose you have a BPOS (Business Productivity Online Suite) account and you want to use the Live Meeting service directly from a computer that does not have the single sign-on application installed.
You will notice that going to https://www.livemeeting.com/cc/[conference_center] will not allow you to use your credentials (user@account.emea.microsoftonline.com or user@your_custom_domain). That's because on the Live Meeting platform you have a different username a a different password than the one in BPOS. The "normal" way of accessing your account is to go to your BPOS home panel (https://home.microsoftonline.com/) and click on the Live Meeting link. But that's just a few more clicks than necessary.

If you still want to access the Live Meeting directly, go to:
https://lm.emea.microsoftonline.com/
instead and use your BPOS account and password.

best of luck!
