    This should be easy... brand new SL install and an existing gmail account. I have the email configured. Have calendar configured and syncing. But contacts... when I set up syncing in Address book, nothing syncs. When I exit Address Book and reenter, the option to sync with Google is no longer checked. I re-enable it and it does the same all over again. Any suggestions about how to get that option to stick?

    Update: OK so when I try the process with another account, it works like a charm. So what does that mean? How can I "fix" the gmail account in question to get it syncing?

    I'm having this issue to and I haven't found a solution yet. I don't think this was a problem in earlier builds of 10.6. I feel it only started in the last build, 1.6.4. I'm trying to find a location on Apple's support pages to submit the issue. I would suggest doing the same.


    I just found this article on the Apple Support pages.

    I'm going to try this when I get home and see if that solves the issue.
