    Hi all:

    Relatively new Captivate / Android user here...

    I have my Captivate hooked up to my company's Exchange server via ActiveSync. All is good there.

    My problem is that the handsfree bluetooth system in my car will only sync contacts with the Captivate's built-in Phone address book (vs the "Corporate" address book in Contacts Display Options).

    Right now, I have been exporting Corporate Contacts to the SD card and then importing them from the SD card into the Phone contacts. This can be a chore when I have to add/modify/delete a contact in my Corporate contacts as I have to delete all the Phone contacts and then redo the export/import every time there is a change.

    Is there anyway to sync changes automatically between the Corporate address book and the Phone address book? Am I overlooking something really simple?

    Thanks for the help,
    ALG

    I don't have personal experience using the Captivate with Exchange (I keep a separate work Blackberry for that) but based on others' experiences:

    Try using K-9 first and setting it up for Exchange. If you're not happy with that, you can look into Touchdown ($20). More info here: Email - CapFAQ

    Thanks, sremick. I am reading more and more that the built-in email client is not so good, especially with ActiveSync/Exchange. I've installed the trial of Touchdown and so far, so good...
