Sync Teams Status with Exchange on Premise / Outlook Client (Central switch "Off" Option)

Occasional Visitor

Hello Teams-Users out there,


we are using MS Teams since COVID-Pandemic with much satisfaction. We are using Teams with Outlook 2016 with Windows 10. If someone writes a Mail to another employee, you'll get the "Teams Status" in the "To" Field, showing "Online", "Do-Not-Disturb", "Away-from-Keyboard"...


But our work-counsil don't want this. Is there an Option in Teams-Central-Admin to switch off this "Sync" between Teams / Outlook? 


That would really help and we will be able to continue using Teams with our 10.000 employee-staff. 


Thanks :)
