Hi,

I have some issues synching my blackberry contacts with outlook.  Is there a place where I can set the 'reconcile' setting as in the messages?

Hi BreakFixJim,

What sort of problems are you having?

Can you let me know a little bit more about your infrastructure? Which version of BES are you using? Which mail platform? Are they on the same server? etc.

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Mike,

Exchange 2010 > BES 5 sp3 > blackberry Torch & Outlook 2010.

BES and Exchange are on different servers.

Thanks BreakFixJim,

And what are the problems you are having with the Contacts? Is it failing to add/update/synchronise? Is it in one direction only? Is it a general failure?

Sorry for all the questions :-)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Ah! That changes things.

On ther affected phone, go into the Contacts list, press the BlackBerry menu key and choose Options. The last item on the list should say 'Desktop'. Click on this check that Wireless Synchronisation is ticked. If it is, untick it and save the changes then tick it again and save the changes.

Let me know,

Mike
