Hi,

I found the same thing after my HTC One updated to Sense 6 last night.

I have found that the ActiveSync client is also now syncing contacts from the 'Suggested Contacts' folder in the exchange
mailbox. So if you clear out that folder from your exchange mailbox, then sync the phone, they will be gone. Hope this helps
others who don't like having a contact for EVERYONE THEY'VE EVER EMAILED! Aaagh!

Nice catch, thanks. And not only that, but it seems to sync every "contacts" folder (even sub-sub-folders) in your folder tree (I had a few "backups"), no wonder I had over 8000 contacts... and I just thought I had more friends all of a sudden
