I keep all my contacts in my work email account (MS Exchange with Outlook 2010) and also use Hotmail for emails (e.g. I would like to be able to access all my Exchange contacts when I send an email from Hotmail.

How do I sync my contacts between my Exchange and Hotmail accounts?

Have you found a solution? I've got the same problem :( – Sam Dec 28 '10 at 13:47

It's not syncing, but you could copy them over to your Hotmail Contact list within Outlook, when you have the Outlook Hotmail Connector installed.

You have to hold down CTRL while dragging them across, otherwise they get moved instead.

Alternatively, I think you may be able to do it with Plaxo Premium, but I am not sure. I only use the standard service.

Synrc is something that I just remembered as well. I seem to remember having some sort of difficulty with it, but it was quite a long time ago, so I have forgotten what it was.
