iSync Connector / Apple Address Book Problems
RE: Zimbra iSync Connector version 4.5.441
I use the iSync connector to sync my office Mac, my home Mac and my MacBook to my Zimbra account. The iCal syncing seems to be seamless. The Address Book syncing is very buggy.
Some of the problems include:
1.Duplicate address fields appearing in my Address Book contacts.
2. My Address Book groups seem to lose the contacts inside them.
3. In the individual Address book contacts, the "company" box becomes unchecked, resulting in all my contacts becoming individuals, as opposed to some being listed as companies.
The problems listed above relate to the Address Book data, the data on my Zimbra Web account does not have these problems. I have tried resetting my sync data (both ways), Resetting up my account. Trashing preference files. Resetting sync history in iSync preferences etc. But I seem to continue to have these problems.
iSync Coonector/Address Book
1. The problem I'm seeing with the groups is that on occasion after syncing I will find my group titles are all visible, but the contents of those groups has vanished in my Address Book. The only fix that I've had success with is going back to a previous back up of Address Book data.
2. On occasion after syncing. I will find that I have multiple email address, telephone number and address fields in my Address Book contacts. While the data in my Zimbra web account seems to be fine. An example might be, I will have an Address Book contact with one phone number, one email address, one street address. After syncing, I might see an addition copy of the email address appear as a "Email 2", same address, just duplicated in another field. Or I might have a "Work" street address in my contact, after syncing I will see "Work", "Home", "Other", all with identical address...
