Outlook 2010 on Windows 8 - Concern Over Contacts & Relationship with Exchange E-mail
Hi all,

I'm helping a friend out transfer contacts from his old laptop and Blackberry to his new laptop. He just recently purchased a Windows 8 laptop with Microsoft Office 2010. We setup three e-mail accounts for him, 2 with companies that he's a consultant for (1 Exchange & 1 IMAP) and 1 that he uses as a personal e-mail (IMAP). Here's the issue, after importing the contacts my friend and I noticed that it states in the Contacts module/screen "Contacts -" and after the dash is his Exchange e-mail address. Should we be concerned that these contacts are being shared with the Microsoft Exchange server?

Is there anyway to either A) associate these contacts with his personal (IMAP) e-mail or B) disassociate them with any particular e-mail address? Please let us know.

Thanks.

No and no.

Should we be worried that this information is being shared with the Exchange server? We don't want it to be. Please let us know. Thanks.

Yes, it's being shared with the Exchange server.

If the contacts are showing up under his Exchange account, then yes, they are being stored on Exchange. You can move them to a local PST instead of Exchange if you just want them in Outlook.

If you want them imported into his IMAP account instead, you need to dump them off the BB in some standardized format (like VCARD) or export them from Outlook and then import them into whatever IMAP provider he's using. Alternatively, if he has an iPhone or Android phone, he can transfer the contacts to his phone and then allow the device to sync them to the IMAP provider, if this is supported (e.g. Gmail).

Except the part where IMAP doesn't support contacts...

I know. I mean through that provider's webmail interface, if the option is there.
