Two Exchange Email accounts, Sync Contacts? (or IMAP + Sync one Exchange contacts?)
Posted on 2006-11-18
My goal is to have my Contacts sync'd and available in both Work and Personal email accounts.
Ok, here's the challenge. I've been searching for what seems like years with no results.
So again, I have TWO exchange email accounts, Work and Personal. I've been keeping my Contacts in my work account. Since my work allow an outlook connection via RPC over HTTP via outlook 2003, this means I can fully connect with no VPN. I have full access to my Work Email + Contacts over my public ISP at home. I also have a Pocket PC / Ipaq that syncs all my Work PIM/Contacts over GPRS/EDGE as well. This is why I use my Work Exchange account as my primary Contacts storage place.
I have a personal exchange account on a hosted exchange email service. As you know, you can’t have TWO exchange accounts working in one outlook profile. I can setup two outlook profiles, but my contacts will only be sync’d in my Work exchange account. My semi-work around is to have one outlook profile that is a combination of Work Exchange and Personal IMAP. This IMAP account is the suplimental access method my Personal Exchange account offers. This allows me to send/receive both email from both Work and Personal and still have contacts available as well.
I'd rather not mix work and personal emails as you can imagine in case a mistake is made, etc. Does anyone know of an application utility that will allow me to Sync contacts between two Exchange systems? (Work / Personal) It would be fine if I had to keep my Personal account connected via IMAP if needed. ( PST Archive works, as long as contacts are always in Sync and readily available)
I cannot find a decent solution. I’ve searched google and read about a few sync programs, but they don’t seem like the right solution for my situation.
