I setup my exchange 2010 account. Email and calendar synced perfect however my contacts will not. Everytime I try to sync contacts, Address Book closes. Help?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7)

    Agreed I'm seeing the same thing.


    My Contacts won't sync from Exchange 2010 but Calendar and Mail works just fine.

    Apparently the issue is that even if you click to sync Contacts on the initial setup wizard for Mail it doesn't actually capture that change.


    You need to go into System Settings - Mail Contacts and Calendars and re-enable Contacts sync after you've completed the initial setup wizard in mail.

    My Address Book was sync'ing just fine then earlier today it had to re-sync everything and now I just have a partially sync'd Address Book.  All I see is "All Contacts" and not my other contact folders.  Any ideas of how to blow away my Address Book database so that it can start over?


    EDIT:  I went into my home folder/Library/Application Support and blew away the AddressBook folder.  That wiped out all my contacts and configuration.  So then I went into System Preferences and re-enabled Contacts for my Exchange server.  My folders are back and now, while waiting for it to fully sync the Address Book crashe.. I'm hoping it will continue to sync.

    I am also having problems.  I just updated to Lion and have been running 2011 Outlook against Exchange (pretty sure we're still running exchange 2007 at corp).


    I can get things connected (lion/outlook to exchange) and all I really care about syncing are contacts.  Instead of syncing, what I find are my contacts either a) disappearing competely or b) appearing in my address book multiple times (2, 3, sometimes 4 copies of each entry).


    Tried removing and re-adding stuff serveral times. 


    Something is not right.

    It works perfect for me... thanks a lot

    I had a exchange contact list, and it did'nt sync with my iMac... so I delete the addressbook folder, reconfig the mail, calendar and contacts and it works perfectly!
