Synch 1 PC home, 1 PC work w/Exchange; want no synch contacts on meetings

maybe it's a tad too stupid advice but have you tried to
uncheck a combo box "Contacts" and "Calendar" in
Tool/Options/Sync Options or to set a rule "Leave the

I believe so. If I turn off the synch options, the "personal" contacts will
not synch, nor will the calendar -- and both need to be synched. I just
want the calendar *not* to try to synch attendees on an appointment I
schedule via Outlook/Exchange. There doesn't seem to be this level of
refinement to the calendar synch options. It's probably a common issue and
one not too difficult to solve (in the next version of ActiveSync);
Microsoft should address it.

The same type of synch problem may hold true for an Outlook Task you assign
to an Exchange server (corporate) contact; however, I don't use this feature
in Outlook Tasks.

his problem happens with PocketPC as well and I am guessing the same answer
is applicable here as well.

This is a problem related to the Global Address List. Your home PC isn't
connected to this Exchange feature.It doesn't indicate a problem with your
device or ActiveSync. This is just what happens in this situation (one
partner syncing with an Exchange profile, the other not).

Currently the only way this works as expected is if the system using the PST
store would be Outlook 2000 in Email Only mode. In that mode Outlook only
looks at the Windows address book and ignores the request for the global
address book. There is no workaround to this if the system using the PST
file is Outlook XP or Outlook 2003. There is no Email Only or Corporate or
Workgroup mode options in this version.

Synch 1 PC home, 1 PC work w/Exchange; want no synch contacts on meetings

ou have characterized the issue precisely. Thank you. I am not synching
Contacts with the Global Address List [Exchange Server] on either machine,
as specified in ActiveSync setup.

Unfortunately, ActiveSync does attempt to synch Global Address List contacts
that are related to calendar appointments (i.e., as invitees). ActiveSync
forces me to enter these contacts in my .PST file, on my home/non-connected
PC.

I hope that Microsoft adds further differentiation (i.e., ability to specify
whether or not to synchronize global address book [Exchange/Server] for
Calendar- or Task-related contact entities) to ActiveSync.
