Active Directory is overwriting users contacts...Bad news
Posted on 2013-01-07
We're using Exchange 2003, and the users have Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010
If we have a user within our AD with contact info, and an employee creates a contact within their personal contacts with the same name as the contact within the GAL in AD. AD overwrites the personal contact info.
If you open up the personal contact, it will show the date it was overwritten, and literally show the crossed out info and the info it was replaced with in the right hand side pane. It 'CORRECTS's the personal contact without even a popup asking whether you want it to.
How can I stop AD from overwriting the personal contact info created?
