Experts,

Since I transferred to Outlook 2010, my contacts are constant updated automatically with the GAL meaning that if there is other information in the GAL, my contacts in outlook are updated automatically.. since my contacts are more up to date than the GAL, I'm lost already a lot of information.. I tried to find out how to prevent this ?

thanks in advance
