Default Merging BB and Outlook Contacts with BES

Please Login to Remove!

I want to merge the contacts that I have on my BB with those in Outlook. I am using BES. I'm worried of what might happen if I simply turn on the option to sync wirelessly. Many of the contacts are duplicates and some exist only in Outlook or only in the BB.

What I would hope for by simply turning on the wireless sync is that any contacts appearing in only one location would now be in both. Then, with all those that have the same name, I would be satisfied if the entry that was saved latest wins. In general, all the entried in my BB are newer, so even if it is a case of the BB entried overwriting the Outlook contact data that would be fine too. What I really DO NOT want is for the Outlook entries to overwrite what I have in the BB.

Before I go ahead, does anyone have any insight into the best way to do this?

Thanks!
