Hi Guys,

We have Exchange server 2003 and I use a Windows Mobile 6.0 phone with my Exchange account.

Problem: I took my contacts folder and seperated my contacts into "Personal" and "Business" sub-folders under the Contacts folder. The caused all of my contacts to disappear from my phone. I think the reason is that the phone is not syncing Contacats sub-folders. I went into Options on my phone and there is no setting for that as far as I can tell. Is there a way to do this?

You can change which email folders sync by clicking on menu and selecting manage folders on the mobile which is what the article above says but I don't think that answers your question on contacts.  I am pretty sure that you can not sync anything but the contacts folder itself.  I was told to use a third party software when I looked into this last year.  One of them was add2exchange which can be found here: http://www.diditbetter.com/
I did not do this...instead I moved all my contacts back into the one folder and created catagories for them.  Personal, Business, Suppliers, and FD.  I use filters if I want to see all the FD contacts together for instance.  This is actually convenient because when searching is a one step process as a memeber of the FD might be in the business catagory also if they are a client.  Good luck, Rob.
