I'm trying to get the sync with addressbook to work. I have approx 10k contacts in various groups. I realised pretty quickly that syncing them all (not all are related to my current job) is not useful and downright unhandleable in the webclient (cannot mass select etc).

So instead I'm trying to set up a partial sync. Selected only a shared folder with colleagues where we will build up a new contacts database that I would like to have a 2-way sync with.

However try as I might (even after a clean reinstall of isync) the tool attempts to sync all 10k contacts to my personal contacts folder; and hogs all the cpu/lots of memory. And then I have not even addressed the problem of addressbook groups which the initial full sync just turned into distribution lists in the zumbra contacts (unusable again)...

Does anybody face the same issues or have any tips for a workaround? We're using 5.0.19 and os x 10.5.5.

Cheers, Florian
