      There are a few situations where secondary contact folders were already synchronized as SYNC_FOLDER_TYPE_USER_CONTACT to Outlook:

      • No KOE was installed: FolderSync will have sent the folder as SYNC_FOLDER_TYPE_USER_CONTACT
      • a KOE version that doesn't support secondary contact sync (basically anything older than 1.3) will have got the folder as SYNC_FOLDER_TYPE_USER_CONTACT already
      • Z-Push was not yet aware that a capable version of KOE was installed when the FolderSync was triggered by OL and so it sent the folder as SYNC_FOLDER_TYPE_USER_CONTACT (e.g. timing issue on new profiles)

      In all these cases, this could be fixed by running a hierarchy resync via the webservices so these folders are then patched sent correctly.
      It's still difficult for KOE to identify these situations and trigger this.

      Z-Push could control this on the server side, e.g. by:
      On a FolderSync:

      • check if KOE version is capable of secondary contact folders (need ZP-1132 for this)
      • check if in the hierarchy cache is a folder of type SYNC_FOLDER_TYPE_USER_CONTACT that was not synchronized as SYNC_FOLDER_TYPE_UNKNOWN

      This should be the case for all above cases. In this case, Z-Push could resend (with an update?) the folder (attach U+200B to name & type as SYNC_FOLDER_TYPE_UNKNOWN).

      First step is to verify if the folder goes through to mapi in OL for such an update event.
      Alternatively a delete & add events could be generated (not preferred!).
