    OSX Addressbook Sync

    I have recently moved from Entourage to iSync/iCal/Addressbook. I am having a very difficult time, and it seems that only a small portion of my Addressbook gets moved over. On top of that, some contacts get merged together. Does anyone know how I might sync my entire addressbook? It is really becoming an inconvenience to be without my numbers. The problem is that Macintosh/Treo support is literally non-existant.

    Also, while I prefer the OSX native apps like iCal and Mail over Entourage, iCal is a very poor manager of To-Do items. Does anyone know of a plugin or Applescript or some kind of utility that will allow me to categorize my ToDo items, yet still sync my calendar with Entourage?

    Thanks.

    Try "Force Slow Synchronization" - worked for me a few times. What does that do? Check out this link.

    Sync

    Hmmm - I'd like to try that, but now I am afraid to sync because there is no way to adjust the conduit - in other words, I am afraid the half empty addressbook on my Treo will erase the full addressbook on my computer. Anyone know how to set up the conduit so that I can guarantee the computer replaces items on the handheld?

    Why not just back up your Contacts database on the Mac? Go to Address Book / File / Back Up Address Book, try the "slow" sync, then if it's not what you want, just do File / Revert to Address Book Backup.
