Sync Exchange (Office365) contacts but not email

Hi

We have a small Office365 subscription (4 users) of which one user (call them "A") manages the master contact list in desktop Outlook. The easiest way to "share" that contact list to the Windows phone of another user ("B") seems to be to add A's Exchange account to B's phone.

Contacts sync fine. However, I'd like B not to get A's email. Can I turn off email sync for that account but leave contacts synced to the phone? (On an iPhone, for example, you'd go to Mail settings and just turn off email for that account, leaving contacts syncing.)

thanks!

Matt

Re: Sync Exchange (Office365) contacts but not email

Hi Matt!

In this regard, Windows Phone works the same way. In settings > email + accounts > (account name), there is checkboxes for each of the following: email, contacts, calendar, tasks. But I see a downfall here that would also be possible with iphone is that Person B, owns the phone, they can go back into settings and turn on email later and get Person A's email.
