Controlling what contacts sync with activesync from outlook

This is tested with Outlook 07 and activesync 4.5

Under activesync there is noway to control anything with contacts, you plug it in and it syncs all or nothing.

So the work-around for this is to

  1. Open up outlook and go to your contacts folder (don’t really look like folders anymore with 07)
  2. Next you want to File>New>Folder
  3. Then you want to name it something like Don’t Sync
  4. Then you will want to click on your Contacts folder and find the people you don’t want synced to your phone and drag them to the new folder that you just created.
