Is there a way to create custom fields on the Kerio Server side for contacts? When using address book you can create a custom field for say an extra phone number and call that field "France Phone Number" but when it syncs with Kerio it just puts it into the "Other" field. Is there a way to get the name of the field to sync also? or a way to add to the short list of field options for phone numbers in the Kerio server?

Did anyone get an answer to this?

I have the same problem, that I have custom contact fields on my iPhone that sync OK to the Mac Address Book (manually), but the Mac Address Book to Kerio sync then loses the custom field names which just become 'other'. Worse still is that when the contacts are pushed to my iPad, the 'other' fields are gone completely.

Kerio 7.0.2

There appears to be a problem within Kerio Connect's webmail interface related to this:

One of the contact fields which are present by default on the iPhone/Mac address book is a phone number field called 'main' (alongside others called 'mobile', 'work', 'home' etc). This gets synced to Kerio as 'Primary' which is logical enough, but this is then only viewable in the web interface in the Address Cards view of your contacts. It doesn't appear in the Phone Book view no matter which columns you turn on, or even in the Edit Contact view.

It therefore appears that Kerio is only pushing Contacts with the fields present in the Phone Book view, and is NOT sending out the full info from the Address Cards view.
