Address Book - All

On 4.5 there are multiple address books. When I upgraded, it moved my desktop address book into "address book - all", making the desktop address book empty and unable to synch

Re: Address Book - All

Hello ccuccolo and welcome to the Forums!


Could I get a bit more info from you so I can try and help you out.

Are you on a BES?
Are you using Desktop Redirector?
Are you using BIS?
Do you have multiple Desktop[sync] service books?
What is the difference in the number of contacts between "Address Book" and "Address Book All" databases?


Once I have this info I will be able to better assist you!

Re: Address Book - All

I have the same problem guys,


When I am in Restore Advance:


On the right part of the screen I see Address Book with 16 contacts, and then Address Book - ALL with 746 contacts


When I synchronize with Outlook, only the 16 contacts get synchronized


How should I resolve this to be able to sync all my contacts to Outlook
