Default 4.4 Email syncs too much! (Exchange)

In previous version of Android the email app would sync ONLY your contacts from exchange. In 4.4 it also syncs your history or "autocomplete" entries. So now I have like 1200 contacts when previoulsy I had maybe 75. Its incredibly annoying when trying to find someone in the list. I know that I can customize which contacts show but I need my exchange contacts to show and they are lumped in with the other ones so there really isnt an option.

Anyone know of a way to not sync the history entries?

EDIT: I figured out that what it is doing is syncing the "Suggested Contacts" folder. I do want and need this folder when using my actual Outlook but dont want it syncing to my phone

In "Customize" uncheck "Suggested Contacts" folder and you might want to create folders (e.g., friends, family, mistresses) and classify them into each folder and then check the boxes that you want to appear.

As I mentioned in the original post there is no "Suggested Contacts" under customize. The only option for my exchange account is "All Contacts" which includes the Suggested Contacts.
