Your contact list is stored on a server. You might see a contact list conflict message, for example, if you are using the client on more than one computer and your contact list on one of these computers gets out-of-synch with the version on the server.
When you see this message, you can:
- Replace the version of the contact list on the server with the version on the computer
- Replace the version of the contact list on the computer with the version on the server
- Merge the server and local versions of the contact lists
Before selecting an option, think about the implications of your choice. For example, let's say you cleaned up a long and unorganized contact list on one computer; this is the version on the server. Then, if you start up another computer and you see this message, be careful which option you select. If you choose to merge or replace the server version with the local copy, you'll lose the clean version of contact list. In this case, choose to replace the contact list on the computer with the version on the server.
