In short: The Lync Address Book Service does not handle all legal uses of e.164 formatted phone numbers, specifically the ;ext= used for extensions. At my employer, the standard taxonomy dictates that a users phone number in Active Directory is in the e.164 format. This makes sense as it is an international telephony standard. If …

Lync Response Group Service Limits

I found the following table in some dated Lync material. Half the time Lync is referred to as OCS Wave 14 so I hope this data is still relevant.
