Synch address book contacts with dotmac on 10.5.2 Leopard

When I check contacts synch settings in dotmac it confirms last synch was at 20.21. But when I check a listing of contacts in the dotmac address book it says that the last synch was at 06:29pm (no time zone). I found that many of my contacts listings lack the email addresses although they have other dat that are present in my Address Book. I have read that there may be a delay in updating synched data on dotmac but the delay is now more than an hour. Is this a problem with the dotmac server?

I have been synching from system preferences. There was an initial problem caused by having email addresses listed under "Other" rather than Home or Work. Dotmac doesnt have accommodation for "Other" email addresses so these weren't being synched. However, when these had been edited to conform with these dotmac limitations, the email addresses still didn't appear after synch.
I think there is some more basic problem here.

  • Syncing Address Book contacts with iPod

    I know some people will think this post should be in the iPod forum but I have realised that it is not my iPod beccasue I tried using a different iPod and the same problem happened. Anyway...the problem is that when I choose to sync Address Book contacts with iPod it comes up with this message:
    No contacts available
    Contact syncinig cannot be enabled because there are no contacts available. Do you want to open Address Book and create contacts now?
    And gives me the options: Cancel and Open Address Book
    I have tried deleting several different preferences for iTunes, Address Book and iSync (just incase).
    I don't know what else to do, I know I can manually add my contacts by exporting them all as a vCard but it would be so much easier if iTunes could do it. Please help if you know anything!

    I've got Calenders syncing again, not sure how I did it. I deleted the one of the folders in /Users/Alex/Library/Application Support/SyncServices/Local/clientdata/
    I found that in each folder there is a clientname.txt file with the name of what data is in the folder e.g. iCal, Safari, Keychain, Mail.
    I deleted the iCal one and iTunes seems to be syncing it now. So I looked for a folder with Address Book in the clientname.txt file but there wasn't one. I am wondering whether that's the reason!

  • Trying to link Address Book Contacts with Outlook 2011 - iSync??

    Hi There,
    Would be grateful for some assistance.
    I've got all my contacts and other things in iCloud - wonderful!
    I've managed to get all my contacts from iCloud to show up in Address book.
    I want to sync my address book contacts in Outlook 2011 - after three days of trying I'm still stuck.
    I've checked the Syncing set up in Outlook, that appears to be correct.
    I've checked addressbook, and other than having two folders one entitles iCloud (which has everything I need in it) and one entitled On my Mac, which has a couple of testers in it but nothing else, everything else seems fine.
    I've checked that iCloud is synching into the iCloud folder in Address Book by putting some stuff on my iPhone and seeing it got pushed from the iCloud to my MacBook - all working fine there.
    I have read lots of forum posts and keep seeing references to iSync, and how its on all Mac's but then I see people saying that its not on with Lion - I'm running Lion, and I can't find iSync...so this would seem to be true.
    Can anyone tell me how I might achieve this sync process - I would much rather be using an integrated programme like Outlook...any thoughts

    Enthusiast: I just got back from the Apple Store. This is the solution they suggested and seems to work. We got rid of iCloud contacts. We just set up Yahoo account in the "mail, contacts, calendars" of the iPhone. Under the "contacts" section we have the "default Account" set to Yahoo. When any additions/delete/mods happen then it is updated on Yahoo.
    On the MacBook we deleted the "on My Computer" and deleted "iCloud" and then added the Yahoo account for synching. This is basically used as a secondary backup for the yahoo contact and used if using the computer. It is not necessary to use the computer for any of this.
    I've been having lots of problems with Yahoo contacts. I had previously pulled in facebook contacts. This was NOT a good idea. I cleaned up my contacts, exported them out to CSV. Scrubbed some more. Imported them to a new yahoo account. Then deleted all contacts from my main Yahoo, permanently deleting them. Then imported my contacts. I did lose all my "lists" settings. That was a small price to pay.
    Now iPhone, iPad and MacBook address book and Yahoo are all in sync.
    I was shown at the store is to refresh the Yahoo webpage (CTRL R) and then refresh the contacts on the iPhone. There is a slight delay in update. iCloud is faster at it. But its best to avoid iCloud if you are using Yahoo contacts. Also avoid Facebook contacts. If you really want to use the Facebook feature, I would do it on a different account and then bring in the contacts that you want through an import.
    I was having problems with Yahoo contacts and it might be that it was being flaky or they were experiencing problems ... because all of a sudden it started working again. I've seen similar problems with Yahoo Calendar.

  • Cannot Synch Address Book Contacts from Mac OS to iPod

    I have current software, and a video ipod. I am unable to synch my contacts. When I try, the message is that I have not created any contacts in my address book and would I like to create some now....I do have Address Book contacts and cannot find an answer relating to using a MAC OS system (10.4.9) - they all seem to relate to windows problems. Everything else on my ipod synchs just fine.
    Please someone out there - any help?

    the easiest is to open AB on G3, select all contacts and drag them to the desktop. that will create one big vcard with all contacts. move it to the mac book and drop it onto AB there.

  • Trouble synching address book contacts to phone

    here goes:
    i recently updated to the newest iOS and newest itunes software. since the update, i have not been able to tranfer all of the contacts from my address book(on my mac) to my phone!  When I plug my iphone in to the computer and go to the info tab, ""Sync Address Book Contacts" isn't even an option. It only says "Sync Contacts". I've even tried the "replace info on this phone" and I still don't get all my contacts from my address book!

    Welcome to discussions Rick,
    I don't know of a Bluetooth icon in address book. Are you using iSync? The way I sync only contacts of my choosing is to create a new group in address book called some thing like 'Nokia' add the contacts I want then use iSync to sync the phone using only 'Nokia' group.

  • Sync Subset of Address Book Contacts with iPhone?

    Is there a way to limit the contacts in Address Book which are sync'd with the iPhone? My copy of Address Book has many contacts which are from long ago. I like to keep them around for the occasion I need to reach someone. But, I don't need them cluttering up the list of people I need to reach promptly in my iPhone.
    Thanks!

    The simplest way to do that would be to create a group in Contacts that has just the ones you want and only sync that group to your iPhone.

  • How do I share Address Book/Contacts with my partner's account?  We already figured out how to share Calendars

    I am in the process of setting up separate icloud accounts for my husband and me (whereas we previously shared one).  We both want read/write access to a single address book across all devices (desktop, laptop, ipad, two iphones), which we've been able to do for Calendars - why not for Contacts???

    The same sharing facility that you have for calendars does not exist for contacts.  What you could do is create a second ("secondary") iCloud account on one of devices by going to Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calendars>Add Account>iCloud and signing in with a different ID and turn Contacts on in the secondary account.  Then add the secondary account to the other iOS devices and your Mac (by going to System Preferences>Mail,Contacts,Calendars>Add Account>iCloud).  This will give you a merged listed of contacts in the secondary account on your devices while keeping other data separated in the primary account.

  • New iPhone won't synch Address Book groups with PowerPC G5

    Last night I uploaded vCards into Address Book on G5, then organized them using Smart Groups. iPhone won't upload the groupings--so I'm left with 1,500 addresses in a flat file. That translates into too much flicking ;~}

    This is certainly a major problem with the productivity of the iPhone. The Address book on the iPhone is lacking in some very important features. THere is absolutely no reason that the search ability that is required by the smart folders to work is not a part of the iPhone address book.
    We have now had three updates to the phone and still the address book is not searchable. How can that be. When doing SMS you can start typing and it narrows down the address book options. Why can't the Address Book do the same thing?

  • "Sync Address Book Contacts" option missing all groups

    I had a problem with multiple copies of contacts on my iPhone so I deselected the "Sync Address Book Contacts" box in iTunes before synching. The popup said that all contacts would be removed from the iPhone, and I clicked to proceed. When the sync was complete, I verified that all contacts had been removed from my iPhone (they were).
    Then I reselected the "Sync Address Book Contacts" but noticed that all 15 of the groups from my MacBook that normally appear in the box with the All Contacts/Selected Groups button were missing. I opened Address Book and they were all there.
    I did a backup of Address Book and then deleted all of my contacts on my MacBook. I quit and restarted my MacBook and then imported my Address Book backup before connecting my iPhone and trying to sync the contacts again, but again, none of the groups appeared in the window and after proceeding with the sync anyway, not a single contact went to the iPhone. I've tried it by both selecting and deselecting the Contacts box under the "Replace information on this iPhone".
    - I connected an iPod touch that didn't have any contact info to the MacBook and, as before, the groups from my address book did not show up and after synching, none of the contacts were installed on the iPod Touch, leaving me to believe that it is something iTunes related except that all of my calendars and music etc. sync without a problem.
    - I've got the latest iTunes (10.1) and Snow Leopard s/w updates.
    Any ideas?

    Exported addresses from Address Book to desktop and then deleted all addresses from Address Book.
    Deleted file AddressBook-v22.ab** from Library>Application Support>AddressBook.
    Exited Address Book and iTunes, restarted Address Book and imported addresses from desktop.
    Restarted iTunes and all of the groups were visible in the "Synch Address Book Contacts" window.

  • Address Book contacts completely missing

    I don't know what may have triggered this, but it happened in the last week or so.
    I have been using Address Book to store and sync my contacts for over a year now.  Just a few days ago I wanted to make some changes, but when I opened Address Book it was totally empty! When I look in the Users/~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/Metadata folder, all of the contact cards are still listed there, and using quicklook I can see that the info is still in tact.
    I tried selecting all of those cards and drag/dropping them onto the Address Book and that didn't import anything. I tried going to File>Import, but Import is greyed out so I couldn't add them back in there that way either.  I can't really think of anything else to try.
    When I type a contact into Mail, however, it sees all of  the contacts just fine, so I'm guessing there's a problem with Address  Book not referencing the Metadata folder (only a guess). I'm attaching a picture of what I see, if that will help.
    Can anyone please help?

  • Problems with outlook and address book contacts: my outlook contacts had around 3,000 entries. Outlook duplicated by itself and now outlook and address book have each over 340,000. What should I do?

    Problems with outlook and address book contacts: my outlook contacts had around 3,000 entries. Outlook duplicated entries and have now 340,000. I reinstalled microsoft office and, thus, outlook, and reinstalled mac OS X system and applications. While I managed to delete outlook contacts so that I can re-sync with my blackberry, the contacts at Mac Address Book were not deleted and still have over 340,000 entries. I do not mind deleting all contacts since I have back up, but I have not been able to delete them. Also, when I go at Address Book and try to delete or merge duplicated entries, the system takes forever and never ends because of such large amount of entries. Worse, when I do so I run out of RAM memory.
    My Macbook pro is just 2 months old.
    What should I do? Is there a way to delete my Mac Address Book without having the problem above?
    Many thanks
    Regis

  • How do I sync my address book contacts on my iphone and clear all other contacts on my phone (issue with icloud?)

    When I purchased my iphone 4S, I had all my old phone's information transfer over to my new phone. 
    I organized my address book on my mac powerbook and then hoped to sync my computer's address book to my phone - in hopes of erasing all the junky contacts on my iphone and only having the my address book contacts on my phone.
    I did all I could trying to make this happen (through iTunes) but it hasn't erased/replaced all of the contacts on my phone - I believe since my phone is synced to icloud.  So I'm stuck with a very unorgaized contacts list on my phone...
    How can I make it so I only have the contacts from my address book on my phone?
    Thanks in advance,
    Suzanne 

    Also, I just noticed that syncing my phone effected my calendar in that all my events now repeat.  So instead of having one event schedule on a day, I have two of the same events scheduled for the same time.
    It seems as if I can't sync my phone to my computer through iTunes and iCloud. 
    Help???

  • Address Book Sync with Google Contacts across computers (instead of iCloud with Lion)?

    I am trying to get ready for the port to iCloud and i am going to do this while still on Snow Leopard per Roger Wilmut's fantastic documentation. It appear to me I will simply lose Bookmark Sync (until I move to Mountail Lion) which is a small(ish) price to pay to not have to deal with an upgrade at the moment.
    The question I am hoping to answer is if it will be possible to SYNC MY CONTACTS across my devices (MacBookPro, MacPro and iPhone) using the Sync with Google Contacts Option in Address Book Preferences.
    Does anyone know if checking this option will put these contacts on both of my Machines and on my iPhone?
    ALSO, does anyone know if it is possible to put the ADDRESS BOOK CONTACTS in one folder and the GOOGLE CONTACTS in another folder so they don't all get mixed up together?
    TIA

    I can't even get manual Google syncing to work with iCloud enabled. Without iCloud, everything works fine.

    Is there a fix to deleting already deleted address book contact, from messages search? i.e. when you type in say letter c in messages search, all contact with a c, past already deleted and current all appear?  How do you make the old deleted ones appear?

    only way is to restore the phone as new.  OR wait until IOS 7 comes out in the fall.
