We are on Exchange 2003 and BlackBerry Server 4.1.2.20.  

I have a user that keeps personal contacts in a separate contacts folder in outlook.  he would like these to transfer to the blackberry along with his default contacts folder (but remain in separate contacts folders in outlook).  

I know this can be done when using desktop sync.  But can it be done (managed) using Blackberry server?

On the BES server you can't configure the device to get contacts from a contact folder other than the default.  This function is only available for GroupWise (you can select any contact folder e.g. frequent contacts) and Domino (you can select what server and the source file for the contacts).

I seem to remember that there is an option on the Intellisync portion of the desktop manager to choose a folder to synch with.

It will not be wireless, but it may get the info onto the BB device.

You might check that out.

Speaking to SysExpert's suggestion:  Does anyone know - If we use Intellisync to bring in that other contact folder, will it create a separate contact folder on the Blackberry - or will all those contacts merge into the same address book (and therefore sync back to the default Contacts folder when BES sync occurs)?

I would test it on a test User if possible.

I would assume it will merge the contacts as the device only has one address book.
