    I need to restore my Entourage contacts from backup. My Entourage DB recently became corrupted and during many unsuccessful repair attempts, I lost my contacts along with some Inbox email on the Exchange server.

    I've just restored the entire DB from Exchange, but after syncing the restored DB with the Exchange server, my contacts are missing. So, it looks like the Exchange server not only won't import/sync the contacts from my local Entourage DB, but Exchange 'wins' during the sync by wiping out all contacts I have stored locally.

    Is there anyway I can sync my contacts one-way after the DB restore (local restored DB contacts ------> Exchange server)?

    What version of Entourage are you using? Do you know which version of Exchange you're connecting to?

    In Entourage, where are your contacts stored? Since you're on Exchange, you have both an Exchange address book and a local address book. If they're in your local address book, you can move them to your Exchange address book, and they'll be stored in Exchange.
