Outlook 2013 Can't create Contact Group

Post by Kiliman » Thu Dec 18, 2014 8:44 pm

I'm connected to ME using Exchange ActiveSync connector. It appears that EAS doesn't support creating or even syncing Contact Groups from Outlook 2013. The button to create a group is disabled in Outlook. I tried creating one in Web Mail and it doesn't sync to the client.

Is this a known issue? Are you planning on implementing this?

This is a limitation of the EAS protocol. It does not support personal/server-side groups.
I think some devices (Samsung) provide the experience by linking client side groups to server items (but Outlook does not provide this).
