Hello Experts,

We just entered the Pad for business scene.
My Outlook/Exchange contacts are synchronizing using ActiveSync/Exhange, however my groups in Outlook do not sync.

Also, I do not see a way to use my company Global Address List?

Are there any solutions for these basic business needs?

It is currently not natively supported, but you can try some apps like Tacts or Mailshot.

Contacts can see the Exchange GAL, but Outlook distribution groups are Outlook specific.
