New contacts added under a new category on device sync to a default address book

Windows Mobile ActiveSync:

If a contact is added under a new category on a Windows Mobile ActiveSync device, it will synchronize to the default address book defined in the NotifyLink Contact Sync Rules on the server.  The new category will not become a new address book on the server.

This is a limitation of the ActiveSync protocol.  Though contacts can be viewed by category on the device, the contact is actually stored in the Contacts folder.  The folder is what is selected for synchronization.  While the category is synchronized, it is only synchronized as a field on the contact.
