Good luck.
Thanks everyone for such a quick reply! This is a very helpful forum. Unfortunately, when I tried clearing the contact info on my BB then sync to to Outlook, the Desktop Manager interpreted this as deletions, and then tried to delete my Outlook Data as well. I think the way DM works is to see which side the last change was made and force it on the other side.

I think my only option is to go through every Outlook entry and make a change (I think pasting the address into the notes area would be useful, since it will be lost in the subsequent sync), then do a oneway resync. DM will then recognize the change on the laptop side, and then fix the BB entries. This will take a while... wish me luck!
