  • Hi there,

    short question. If i configure an user with an 16 digits telephone number i'll get an error "...number must be at least 3 and at most 15 digits long". Is it possible to configure longer numbers then 16 digits?

    Thx and regards

  • Hi,

    it's not possible. As per the Lync Server standard, it'll be only up to 15 Digits.

  • Lync is designed to support E.164 telephone numbers and this limit is defined by E.164 which specifies 15 as the maximum length of an E.164 telephone number, prefixed with +. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E.164

  • Hi Wolfgang,

    Most telephone networks today are interconnected in the international telephone network, where the format of telephone numbers is standardized by ITU-T in the recommendation E.164, which specifies that the entire number should be 15 digits or shorter, and begin with a country prefix.
