Default Address Wireless Synchronization

Please Login to Remove!

Could someone please clarify this for me?

I have a 5.0.1 exchange enviornment.

If I choose to disable Address Wireless Synchronization, would this stop contacts on the device to be synchronized to the users outlook?

Also

If the above is true, could users still search the GAC to find email addresses?

Thanks in advance!

Yes and yes.

Stopping the Address book sync does not delete the contacts from the BB. They will still be there (but not synced anymore).

The Exchange Global Address List (GAL) lookup is unaffected and working.

Just curious, why would you want/need to disable this?

unfortunatly we have some personal devices that we have to allow sync to our BES. So we do not want these personal contacts synched with our exchange servers.

Seems like an odd requirement.
Shouldn't that be up to the user? Why would you care what contacts are in the user's address book?

What prevents the users' from entering contacts into Outlook and doing a wired sync? I'm confused. Do you have a higher up who doesn't understand things worried about bandwidth or something?

IMHO, Wireless contact sync is integral for business use. What's next? Are you going to have to disable wireless calendar, tasks, etc? Doesn't make sense to me to have a BES and nerf the functionality. I would suggest that your bigger concern is allowing personal devices to connect to BES. Not from an infrastructure standpoint, but from a security/support standpoint...
