Default MyPhone and Outlook Sync Issue

I wanted to know if there is a way around or trick to prevent duplicating contacts/appointments/tasks everytime I flash my vogue
and connect/sync to MyPhone and then sync with Outlook?

Sorry if this was asked elsewhere...could find it!
Thanks in advance.

I found a simple solution... Flash your device. Sync with MyPhone. Delete Outlook personal folders file and create a new, empty one (easy way to just delete everything from Outlook). Then set up sync between device and Outlook, voila - all your data goes first from MyPhone to device, then from device to Outlook.

Default Create new Contacts folder

The syncronization between WinMo with Outlook via Activesync regarding the contacts is done using the default Outlook contacts folder. So, what I use to do is to create another contacts folder and move there as many contacts as I want not meant to be sync'd. This way, I achive what I want, and keep intact all the remaining contacts, which you can move back and forth as you please, any time.

However, my understanding of "syncronization" is not all these tricks (I know that sometimes there is no other way) but a single utility that syncs, echoes, replicates or whatsoever. From this point of view, I would like to reiterate the original question: Is there "something" to sync My Phone with Outlook?

Thanks.

FWIW i have the same issue with my Xperia connected toOutlook and a mail2web Exchange account. The only commonality is my Xperia in the middle and the only working solution has been to clear out the Outlook Calendar and Contacts before resynching, after allowing time for the OTA Exchange to finish.
