  1. Microsoft Outlook Creates Many Conflicting Contact Records


    I can't seem to figure out why I keep running into conflicts with my Outlook Contact records. I only ever edit a particular Contact on 1 PC at a time. Yet, something seems to modify the contact on the Exchange server (Office 365), and when I save the contact locally, a Conflict is produced. Here is an example of what seems to be causing the error as reported in Outlook's sync issues log:

    9:31:56 Not equal (conflict) named property: 0x859C0102
    9:31:56 Local modification: {16:31:47.0473 18/03/2020 [DD/MM/YYYY]}
    9:31:56 Remote modification: {16:31:55.0552 18/03/2020 [DD/MM/YYYY]}
    9:31:56 Conflict generated, remote item is winner

    The time on my PC syncs with a national time server, so it's not like the time on my PC is off. What could be causing the "remote modification" of the Contact on the server?

    I have looked at my server settings and ensured that all add-ins are Turned Off. I'm trying to figure out what else could be modifying the Contact record on a server level so that when I save it locally, it conflicts with whatever the server did while I was editing the Contact record locally.

    I have opened Outlook in Safe Mode to ensure that no 3rd party plug-ins or extensions are causing the conflicts.

    I have tried closing Outlook on all PCs except one thinking that the other PCs with Outlook open could be causing sync errors, but that did not solve the problem.

    I have tried running Outlook in Online Mode instead of Cached Exchange Mode, but that did not solve the problem.

    I have cleared all conflicts and linked records for a particular Contact in order to edit that Contact with no "baggage" attached. Nonetheless, a conflict will still occur.

    I have cleared Offline Items from my Contacts folder to let it re-sync fresh from the Exchange server. That did not solve my problem.

    I have created a new Contacts folder in Outlook, but that did not solve the problem.

    My Outlook Conflicts folder is taking up over 10GB of space, so I'd say it's a little out of control. I only have 50GB of storage available from Office365. In case you're wondering, that's 237,779 conflicting items from years of Outlook use. Microsoft Outlook Creates Many Conflicting Contact Records :)

    GUIDE:How to transfer contacts from Microsoft Outlook to Gmail

    I'm sitting here in the office, its the end of the year in the school system, and several employees transferring to alternative counties. With this it brings loads of transferring contacts to take with them from their company phone. Well, this one in particular sparked a guide idea. So here it is, How to transfer Outlook contacts to your Gmail account.


    Step 1: Sign in to your outlook account.
    step 2 In the top left hand corner click File > Import/Export > Export to file > Browse to desired place to save your file > export. Be sure you export the file as .csv (comma separated values)
    Step 3 Log into your Gmail account
    Step 4 Select 'Contacts' In the subsection you will see a 'Import' button on the right-hand side. Click it.
    Step 5 Browse to the location where you saved it > Open it > Click Import.



    I would have provided pictures, but I use neither Outlook or Gmail. Hope someone somewhere gets some use from this. *Toast :toast:

    Cannot add contacts personal folders to address book in Outlook 2016

    Many thanks for all your suggestions, HippsieGypsie, but nothing seems to be working. I cannot delete my folder so I have to keep trying to get it included in the list of available address books. My contacts are all in the Contacts - Personal Folders, but this list is not included amongst those offered by Outlook as a default address book.
