    Just moved from Mail/iCal/Address Book to Entourage. A smooth transition for the email and calendar part but the Address Book sync'ing is driving me mad. No matter what, I get duplicates of contacts and this just gets worse with each attempted re-sync.
    Oddly, back in Address Book, all is well and no duplicates.
    Is this a known issue? Any work around?

    I am having the same issue with the many duplicates in Entourage when syncing with Address Book. I'm wondering if you figured out what the problem is/was?

    No fix yet. The recent software update released by Microsoft didn't solve it either. Anyone else out there got an idea?

    How did you sync? What you probably need to do is reset the sync services store of the addresses, delete all contacts from entourage, and then do a one-way sync from address book to entourage. Then, once you've decided which is your "main" program, set the sync settings to go one way only.
