Default How to organize contacts.

Please Login to Remove!

My BB is setup to work with outlook and corporate exchange server.
Is it possible to organize my contacts within outlook ( ie create subfolder of contacts) and have it displayed in my BB device?
I basically need to group my outlook contacts into subfolders and have this reflected in BB.
thanks dudes

I am not sure on BES. but i believe that you can only create filters through categories. No subfolders that can be transfered from outlook to the BB.

You can sync up to two folders of a given type with a BES. However, you lose wireless sync capability on 4.0 if you decide to go that way and then both Contacts folders are lumped together on your Blackberry. Currently, if you have 4.0 your best bet is to use Categories on your Blackberry and in Outlook. The category field will sync. It is a bit tedious IMO to filter Categories on the Blackberry though.
