I ran into an interesting problem the other day while at a client’s office when I asked one of the IT managers about problems he has had with OCS 2007 R2.
One of the features I’ve always liked was the Outlook contact integration with the MOC client. I can look up phone numbers of the fly when I need to make a call outbound:
The lookup work’s great. It pulls information from my Outlook contact list and allows me to dial:
Ok, but what happens when I put in an extension?
Once I put in an extension, my MOC client now longer shows the phone number.
I haven’t really had the time to research this to see if there was a solution but definitely one of the issues I’ve never noticed.
Here’s the build information:
Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2
Version 12.0.6514.500 SP2 MSO 12.0.6535.5002

I posted this question on the Microsoft partner forums and was asked to try putting “X 243” in my Outlook contact but the number still didn’t show up. I actually went through this exercise with the client already asking him to try “X 243” and “X243” without any luck.
