Default I only want to syncrhonize SOME contacts

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I just switched to using BES with my new job. I want to add some contacts to Outlook, but I don't always want them to sync over to the blackberry. The blackberry is set up for wireless syncing with outlook.

So for some contacts, YES, I want them to sync over, but for others, NO, i just want them stored on the computer for future reference.

Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks,

Bhavesh

I haven't been an Outlook user for years, but can't you set up different profiles? This way you can have one for "all" contacts and another for "blackberry" contacts.

***EDIT***

Here are some links that might point you in the right direction:

Just put the contacts that you don't want synced to the BB into another Contacts folder.

Default a different folder

I created another contacts folder, but that one is syncing too.

so I have

Contacts
Conference contacts


I only want to sync Contacts, but the Conference Contacts is also syncing

I am using BES wireless syncing

ok,

i think i figured it out.

before, i made the new category as such

Contacts
--- Conference contacts

as a subfolder.

Now they are on the same level

Hopefully that works
