admin role can grant enable or disable external access to the Lync server. If external access is enabled, then you can access external lync email.

I tried to add my customer contact in my AD.

Afterwards, I select users -> Enable -> Contact. However, I can't find the contact under Lync control panel ..

Any idea ??

Lync has no dependency on email, so I'm not sure what you are asking here. Lync DOES have AD requirements though, so only user objects in AD can use Lync. An external contact object will not work.

Can I add an external business partner email as AD contact. Afterwards, I grant that account in Lync Control Panel.

When create a user, I see there is a option to add Contact but it can't retrieve the contact from my AD....

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

No it doesn't work, you will have to create a user on your AD with your own domain to grant him access. external e-mails can't be added because Lync client of that user will lookup at the DNS settings of his public domain.

so if your external user is for example at user@lync.com then lync client will not go and register at your own domain because it'll look up at the dns settings of lync.com which has the sip.domain.com records for registering users.
