Exclamation Outlook Business and personal contacts merging when Sycronising!

Problem - Outlook Business and personal contacts merging when Sycronising!

P900 Business & Personal contacts How NOT to merge on transfer? when synchronizing with Outlook/Exchange!

Hi and this is my 1st post!!

I've managed to get the sync done and 1,400 contacts on the phone.
But....... the problem is when the business contacts are on the phone and I want personal contacts in the personal folder on the phone it merges them together!

I have moved the Business contacts prior to importing the personal contacts but it still puts them all together!

Anyone know a way around this ?

Thanx for any help?

Sorry, no way around this. Outlook folders are not recognised by the P900 and vice-versa. This has been covered many times before. If you look at the top of the page there is a fantastic search facilty. Searching in this and the P800 forums will reveal more information, hints, tips and bug reports than you can shake a really, really, very big stick indeed at. It's a great facility for first-timers who perhaps haven't seen what has already been discussed.

Unhappy Thanx

Thanx Bassey

Well that sounds like bad news
To be honest I didn't make the connection about Outlook Folders problem as I had moved the Business contatcs prior to importing the Personal contacts! and assumed that SE would have had sorted this out!

I did look through the long, long list of comon problems but either its not there or I missed it! + I did a search but was looking for the wrong answer I guess!

I have to find a way around this so if and when I do I'll post!

Thanx for the reply.

The recover inbox and outlook express email recovery has prompted you a path of the Outlook Express files' storage. And now save the damaged dbx files in the safe folder, they can be useful.

I have the same problem with tasks categories.

synching with p910 completely useless when one has 100s of tasks in various categories.

Does anyone know of a 3rd party sync program that can recognize outlook Categories and synch accordingly.


Big disapointment in this 'smartphone' if it can't do a rudimentary fuction like this.
