        the new feature of contact synchronization is garbage. i manage my contact list very cleanly and well organized. it is now polluted with random addresses, phone numbers etc just because these were in my emails. if this is not fixed i will stop using the app.

        There should be a option to choose what contacts we want imported.In my contacts in outlook I have every email address from all the emails that have been sent to me.This includes email addresses for contacts I do not have.Fix it so only the contacts show and add the ability to add contacts in the outlook app.

        Borrar contactos en el apartado contactos, ya que el programa me ha introducido el email de gente que ni conozco ni se porque están ahi y no da la opcion de editarlos o borrarlos. Ademas no deberia añadir contactos sin autorización pues el que me haya escrito alguien no es razon para añadirlo a mi libreta de direcciones y mucho menos sin posibilidad de borrarlo. Lo bueno es que eso ocurre con la version para tablet y moviles en la libreta que se accede por web tales contactos no aparecen.

        En el apatado contactos me aparecen unis cuantos que la aplicacion los ha metido por el morro. Lo bueno es que dichos contactos no aparecen si entras por PC, pero en el movil los ha puesto sin saber ni de donde los ha sacado y lo grave es que ni deja editarlos ni borrarlos, ¿ como se puede hacer una aplicacion que mete los contactos que le da la gana y no permite que el propietario los quite?

        Fix the contacts!
        I suddenly got contacts that are not even mine. My phone is full of contact's of contacts. Put a filter or something so we can sync only the true contacts we have in our accounts. I use Outlook for email work not to fill my phone with contacts spam. Really annoyed

        This is messing (polluting?) my Android contact list with un-needed contacts (some with just an email). Will be forced to uninstall Outlook app if not fixed soon. ty.

        I'm frustrated with the sudden pollution of my Contacts list with people I don't know, emailed calendar invitations, and duplicate information from existing contracts. It's basically unusable now. I want to be able to designate which address book I see (it will be my Office 365 list).
