It will come by default if you have configured your account to Exchange.
If you are configured your Outlook to POP3 or IMAP then you need to add LDAP address book.
Let me know if you are using POP3? I can provide the procedure to add LDAP address book.

No that is not possible, you can save or Add any contacts from Global Address book to the Local Contact if you want to achieve this.
But why do want to that anyway?

Search for the person name and then lookup the ext.  The ext is stored under business phone number within the global address list.

Yes all companies find that in the same way (from Global Address Book)
If you want to show the information in the First Page(where your name,city and other information shows up)  then you may have edit the Exchange Details Template from Exchange tools.

I'm just setting up Exchange and Outlook and still working from a test system.  At the moment all names, telephone numbers are typed on word and email around - people often move and the printed word documents contains out-dated information.  I know from working at other companies there are better ways of displaying this information.  We have all the details within Active Directory and I thought Outlook would be a good way to display the contact information and it would be searchable.

im open to ideas, how is internal contact info displayed within your business?
