Mapping contact information fields for synchronization and contact lookups

You can map contact information fields from the email applications on users' computers to the contact list fields on the BlackBerry® devices. The information in the fields in the email applications synchronizes to the fields on the BlackBerry devices. You can create the following types of field mappings on the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server Express:

  • global field mappings: apply to all user accounts in a BlackBerry Domain
  • user field mappings: apply to specific user accounts

You can map up to four fields that users define in the contact information on their computers to their BlackBerry devices. When users request a remote contact lookup from the IBM® Lotus Notes® address book, the fields that you configure display on BlackBerry devices.
