selectively syncing Exchange contact folders

For Exchange ActiveSync, is there any way to only sync specific folders, or a subset of contacts? I have hundreds of contacts organized by folder in my Exchange account, but would only like to sync some of those contacts to my Blackberry.

Re: selectively syncing Exchange contact folders

Assuming you are connection to a non-BES10 account via EAS...


Yes, you can choose to sync specific email folders only.  (Settings > Accounts > [email account] > Edit Folder Settings. Select which folder you wish to sync.)


No, you cannot choose to sync a specific subset of contacts from one EAS account. (A work-around would be to create new EAS accounts for each additional subset you require, set them up as separate accounts, then sync contacts only.  This would require the Exchange adiminstrator's cooperation.)


Hope this helps.
