Exchange server 2003 SP2
User has Outlook 2007 SP1
User has a Treo 700W and is using active sync to connect.
User ID, password, and domain are all correct.
Server Certificate is installed on device
Active Sync on device is set to sync Inbox, Calendar, and Contacts
Inbox and Calendar have synched properly
Contacts when synching, double up the contacts on the users exchange mailbox...which translates to him having 2 of each contact on his Outlook profile.
Why is this happening?

Is he receiving duplicate contacts in his Outlook profile as well as his phone?

What version of Active Sync is he using to sync his phone w/ his desktop?

windows mobile 5 or 6?

The dupes are on his outlook client...not on the treo.
active sync is on his phone....i have to get that version (will be in their office in an hour)....I do not have Active sync on his computer.
Windows mobile is 5.0.

So what happens if the user goes through, and deletes the duplicate contacts from Outlook, and all the contacts on his phone?

When he syncs (I'm assuming he's syncing Over the Air with activesync now instead of using his computer) Does he still have duplicates?
