    Has the 10.6.2 update fixed Spotlight searching of Exchange contacts? It's still broken for me. I've readded the exchange account, rebuild the spotlight index, and repaired permissions to no avail.

    Still broken in address book

    It is still broken for me. I read that one guy had luck with contacts he created after the 10.6.2. I copied all of my exchange contacts to my mac, deleted from exchange, then dragged them back and that did not fix it.

    Found a workaround

    Okay, so I did a little digging and spotlight will find contacts on exchange that have been edited (note you will need 10.6.2). You must edit each contact individually. Click the edit button add a space to their name or some other piece of information. Save the change. If you added a space edit again and remove the space. if you added info that needs to be their you can leave it. This makes the contacts show up in spotlight. I know this is a pain if you have a bunch of contacts, but it is the only thing I have found that works.
