We are all aware that CardDAV on Address Book is just not usable if you have more than a few hundred contacts. Well, we have 2000+, and we need to share the contacts between all 6 of us. So I configured all our iMacs to use Kerio Sync Connector and sync contacts only. I set it to sync every 10 minutes, and automatically sync changes. I've since then found a few conflicts. We didn't get any message warning about conflicts, but I could see duplicated contacts created with the same name. The funny thing is, neither of them has the correct info, and one user actually told me that a contact that she edited on (not the duplicated one) doesn't have the correct info anymore. It seems Kerio Sync Connector doesn't take care of conflicts very well, and actually corrupts the data even on completely unrelated contacts. Does anyone have similar experiences and perhaps can offer some tips on minimizing the chances of this happening?

Don't think there is any working Contact Solution for the Mac atm (Entourage is the exception). The whole Contact sync has never worked for me. My Kerio Reseller also said that this is an issue which hasnt been resolved for years... (apparently its Apples fault).
Maybe changing it to manual synching helps? Lets just hope we get 7.2 rather sooner than later.
