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.

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

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....

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.
