When synchronising Mac Address Book with KMS using the "Synchronise with Exchange" option (and the iSynch Menu), the following things get lost:

- all contact's pictures
- all groups (creating groups on KMS doesn't help since the sync mechanism doesn't support more than one address book)

These two vital things also get lost when enabling contacts sync in iPhone.

I had to switch back to not syncing Mac Address Book contacts with KMS again. Same for iPhone ActiveSync: back to iTunes.

Is there a way yet? Or will there be soon?

Try the Kerio Sync Connector instead.

This is a limitation of "Synchronize with Exchange" function. Using Kerio Sync Connector for Mac instead will sync contact pictures. Groups are not synced to the server but they should remain intact as long as other client which is also synced with KMS do not change the contacts.

Thank you very much.

Works for iCal. But not for ActiveSyncing with iPhone. All groups get merged into "All Contacts".

Will there be a solution for that? Otherwise push cannot be used on the iPhone and we have to switch back to old iTunes syncing.

The other issue is that custom phone number types get wiped after synching the Address Book on another computer (with same user login) with KSC.

Not really working for me. Going back to manually exporting / importing address books to home/office/laptop computers.
