Setting up Exchange to retrieve contact data from external source

Hi all,

I'd like to setup an Exchange server to retrieve data from an external
source.  There are three use-cases, where:

 1. A new contact is created in the external source.  Update exchange.
 2. A contact is deleted in the external source.  Update exchange.
 3. A contact is changed in the external source.  Update exchange.

And updates should only work one way, from the external source to Exchange.
I'm free to select the update protocol and data format, so I was wondering
if you have any suggestions how this could be implemented.

Obviously depends on what the external source is, but if it's within
the realm of LDAP then take a look at SimpleSync

How do I set up an argument which asks for multiple criteria
I am trying to use an argument that asks for one of three criteria (2345P, 8319T, or 7026J) in cell C108, and if it finds it, enters the amount of yet another cell, G108 into cell K108, and if not enters 0 into cell K108. It seems there are too many arguments for the "if" argument, and I can't seem to get the "lookup" argument to work either. Is there another argument I should be working with?

How do I set the 'Set Synchronizing Client' field
We have a number of outlook clients using CRM that have the 'Set Synchronizing Client' select box greyed out. We need to tick them so that they are able to synchronize tasks etc. Can any one help me find out why these are greyed out and then set them so that they can synchronize thanks In my experience, that checkbox is always greyed out for the first install that is performed for a user.

Outlook 2003 Disconnected from Exchange Server 2003, will not reconnect.
Two days ago after setting up a mobile phone to act as a modem for my laptop, testing it, and disabling the dial-up connection associated with it, and reconnecting to my domain and usual network (non-GPRS) I find that I can no longer connect to my Exchange Server. The "Working Offline" icon shows up in the lower-right hand corner of the Outlook Client window, and when I uncheck "Work Offline", I get prompted for a username and password. Normally, I should just be able to cancel out of this window and Outlook works fine again. However, since two days ago, it does not. Th...
