Default Sync'ing contacts with Outlook Business Contact Manager

Please Login to Remove!

Outlook 2003 comes with a CD for a Microsoft product called Outlook Business Contact Manager. It is a pretty useful piece of software that allows you to do just that... manage your contacts. It keeps track of all email and other correspondences, appointments and tasks between people in your contacts.

Anyway.. the issue is that when I sync my BB I can't tell the desktop software to point to the Business Contacts folder. (My guess is because it is a database and not a folder like the default Contacts Folder). So in order to sync my contacts I have to copy all the contacts from the Business Contacts to the default one. It works but it is dangerous managing two contact folders.

Has anybody used this software before?

Any ideas so I don't have to keep two folders? (and so I can continue using the Contact Manager?)

Yes, BCM is very very useful. It makes the history for each contact there immedeiately instead of having to search for it under the activities tab.
I can't figure out how to work around this issue other than what you have suggested.
