Last updated 2 days ago ·Reference W-6725922 ·Reported By 18 users
Lightning Sync might create a duplicate contact in Outlook if a contact's email address in Salesforce matches with any internal Exchange user email or with any contact in Global Address List.
1. Create a contact in Salesforce with email address which is exactly the same as syncing user email or someone who is external User whose details are stored in Global Address List or have an Active Directory User in Exchange
2. Wait for contact to be created in Outlook in 'Salesforce_Sync' folder
3. Reset sync for the user in Salesforce
4. Observe that a duplicate contact is created in Outlook
1. If possible, avoid creating Salesforce contacts with internal Salesforce user emails (users who are internal to the exchange)
2. Manually clear duplicates in Outlook
