It seems like if I setup Apple Address Book to sync w/ Kerio Sync Connector, Plaxo, and Google (via Apple Address Book) there will inevitably be problems. I'm not sure when syncing 3-ways if they all work in concert with each other.

Can anyone please share experiences?

Plaxo can pull contacts from local and google so there are various ways to configure the 3-way sync:

Apple Address Book->Google->Plaxo

Apple Address Book->Plaxo AND Google->Plaxo

Apple Address Book->Plaxo AND Google

Thanks for any ideas. I just want to avoid the constant nagging of KSC saying this or that has changed because of the inconsistent handling of data by the various address books.

I know that this is an old message but I have an answer and a question.

Yes, you can sync Address Book to both Google and Plaxo when you are using the Kerio Sync Connector. I was doing this for about 3 months with pretty good results. Occasionally, there would be an error but I always got things back in sync.

The big plus with using Plaxo is that it has a very nice de-dupper. Why there aren't good tools for de-duping contacts in all contact products is beyond me. I used to use Now Contact which had an excellent tool.

Now the gotcha and the question: Kerio has been recommending against using Kerio Sync Connector for awhile. I recently installed Kerio Connect 7.2 beta and it is running well except for Kerio Sync Connector. So I switched to the recommended CardDAV solution. But, although the contacts appear fine in Address Book, you cannot sync them with either Google or Plaxo.

Does anyone know any hidden Address Book trick to get it to sync a cardDAV account with Plaxo? I'm guessing that it is not possible.
