problem with sync Contact from Outlook to Iphone

Hi everyone, I have a friend who need some help:

Hello TTran,

Sorry to bother you with a private message but I could not find how to start a thread on the forum asking for help on one particular problem.
If you could spare some time here is my question:
- I run Windows 7 Ultimate and Outlook 2007.
- I enter my hotmail address into Outlook Connector, so Hotmail is my default message handler in Outlook. Every thing runs normally until I discover that I cannot sync my Contacts with my iPhone, either with iTunes or with MobileMe, although the "Contacts" folder in Outlook contains 300+ names.
After some investigation I found some explanation:
- The Contacts displayed in the Contacts folder of Outlook are from my hotmail address book (contacts in nhiep-nguyen@hotmail.com), and the Outlook contact book is empty!!! No wonder that the result of the sync is nil, because the only option in the sync procedure is to sync Contacts with Outlook.
In order to sync my contacts with my iPhone I think that I need to Move/Copy all the contacts from (contacts in nhiep-nguyen@hotmail.com) to the Outlook Address book.
I don't know if it is possible or not.
Could you tell me and post this message on the forum for discussion?
Thanks


Thanks a lot

Outlook

Outlook must be the default mail provider in order for the Outlook Addin to synch with Iphone,
Iphone does not recognise a proxy mail server such as hotmail.
When Itunes is opened and the Iphone is connected and synch is initiated, Itunes Outlook Addin initiates the call to synch the phone contacts/mail and calender events through the default Outlook program.

Regards,
Adrian

Thank you Adrian but the Outlook address book on my computer is empty, and the help I am looking for is how to Copy/Move the Contacts from my Hotmail address book to Outlook's.
