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

Post by News Reade » Tue, 11 Nov 2003 01:11:07


I have an MPx200 w/ActiveSync 3.7.1, a home PC w/XP Professional and
Outlook, and a work PC w/XP Professional and Outlook/Exchange. I love the
new Smartphone (I dumped my Tungsten/W ... phone terrible!) On my work PC,
I maintain a personal contacts list and the Exchange server provides
corporate contacts. On my home PC, I maintain a personal contacts list. I
wish to keep both personal contacts lists in synch (as well as on my
Smartphone).

When I synch my calendar, the ActiveSync software insists that I resolve
every contact conflict where I have meeting attendees in my corporate
calendar. However, almost all of these contacts come from the Exchange
server. I don't wish/need to track these folks in my personal contact list.
How do I avoid this? Do I need to put every personal contact (about 600
folks) in a category, and only synch that category? Can I shut-off contact
synch for calendar meeting attendees? (That would be best.) Can I leave
the contact conflicts unresolved?

TIA,

Jim Wilson
