Contact categories containing certain characters prevent new contacts from being added on server
Posted by - NA - on 29 June 2009 11:20 AM

This issue involves contact categories that contain one or more of the following characters in Exchange:

  • asterisk (*)
  • pipe (|)
  • double quote(")
  • colon (:)
  • forward slash (/)
  • back slash (\)
  • period (.)
  • right angle bracket (>)
  • left angle bracket (<)
  • question mark (?)

If a new contact is created on a device with a new category containing one of these characters, the category appears on the server as an address book, but the new contact is not added.
