I would like to pick your brains for a bit on this.
In order for me to get my users to have their BB's synchronized with a public folder (which i have kept a contacts list of all vital personnel's Blackberry PIN numbers for disaster recovery purposes), I have to disable wireless for their address book and have them synch via desktop manager. These contacts are constantly updated (with users receiving new PINs, or users no longer having them) which has kept me from having them copied onto their personal contacts folder. I felt at the time this was the simplest way for me to get this onto their devices and also whatever updates I make. The only drawback is that contacts can only be synch-ed one way (outlook to handheld) because if I enable both ways, the contacts form the public folder are copied onto the personal contacts, and upon a seocnd synch these same contacts are recopied back onto the handheld (effectively doubling, and going forward, tripling, quadrupling, etc) the number of copies.
I'm curious if any other BES admins have implemented something like this and if so, how did you deploy yours?
