  • 2. How do I adjust outlook contact details?
    After I open outlook contact, the screen on left takes half of page and other half on right does not display the contents of all of the notes. This makes it desirable that the left side is shorter then right side. As an Alternate, How do I have the contact notes on bottom instead of to the right as it used to be in previous version of office 2002 pro?

    I am tryig to create a new contact folder with unique fields. The fields are items that I have defnied and can add, however when I added them they were only for the one contact I changed them in. How do I create this so every contact in it will go to these nw field and not the defualt fields? THen how do I import the items I have from Excel with all the info into these outlook contact fields. When I go to import it does not give me the option to map them to the new fields only deafult fields?
  • 4. printing contact information
    I want to print my contacts with all of their addresses (home, work, PO Box, phone numbers and email address information. But all I get is what shows in the contact list (ie if business address is showing, then I only get that, and not the home address as well.

  • 5. How do I hide email's when sending an email to a distribution list
    I know I can just put the distribution list in the BCC field and send the message to myself, but it seems like there should be a simple way to display the list name instead of the 30+ email addresses I am sending to.

How to synchronize offline contacts with exchange contacts

Postby SD » Sat, 19 Nov 2005 21:55:11 GMT

I have two contacts is my offline or .pst folder and the other
is the one hosted from the exchange server. I'm running plaxo which only
synchronizes with my offline folder...I understand it does not synchronize
with the public exchange folder. Therefore, is there a way the offline
personal folder (which does sync with plaxo) can sync and merge with the
public exchange contacts on the server??

Any particular reason you're not using a real Offline Folder (OST) file 
along with your Exchange mailbox?

No reason...somehow in the setup of the account I created a pst folder...not
sure how to set up an OST folder. Would that stay local and synchronize with
the exchange/server contacts?

Yes, it stays local & sync'd with your Exchange mailbox. Check with your 
mail admin about setting one up within corporate guidelines

3.Offline/Online Folders - Synchronizing (Contacts)

For some reason, I have 2900 contacts in my Offline 
folder but only 250 of them appear in the online folder. 
Of course, I want them all in the online folder so my PDA 
sychs properly and so I can access them when logging in 

How do I move the contacts from the offline to the online 
folder? I am afraid that by synch'ing the two folders, 
the online foler will overwrite the offline one, and I'll 
lose all those contacts.

I am using XP, Outlook 2003.

5.Signed in, all contacts 'offline' but they are not really offline

So I was using the new beta, then one day, all my contacts
went offline, I thought it was kind of odd, seeing as my
wife sits right next to me and she was online, chatting
with her friends in MSN, but I was listed as offline, yet
on my machine I was listed as offline.

Anyone know a solution?  I've reinstalls, installed older
versions, nothing.
