Default Contacts Folder Questions

Please Login to Remove!

I have some questions about what can actually be synced with BES, as we are rolling out a CRM app which will automate some of our contact harvesting and publishing.
1- Can BES sync the main private Contacts folder and a subfolder of that?
2- Will they be seen separately on the device?
3- How many subfolders can BES sync
4- Can BES sync a users private Contacts folder and a Public folder?
5- Will they be seen separately on the device?
6- If the answer is no to #4, can a public folder be the default folder for a device/user?
I think that's it. Thanks in advance for any replies!

Default One more thing

Thanks for the quick reply! On thinking about it, there is one more thing. Say you sync two folders in Outlook with your BB. When you add a contact on your BB, which folder does it go to in Outlook? Are you able to choose? Or is there simply a default folder?
Thanks again.

Just to be precise, regardless of the number of folders you are syncing from Outlook to BB, when a contact is created on the BB, it is synced to the individuals private, main Contacts folder?
