    My Droid3 seems to have pulled every single person I've ever emailed into my contacts (the exchange sync.) Even if they are not in any contact list through my work's Outlook.

    This is really annoying as they're all in quotes and at the top of my contact list.

    Is there an easy way to cut this down?

    Yes. You should start here, google.com/contacts. You can start cleaning up all your contacts, grouping them, removing others, deleting duplicates, etc. I also found this article to be helpful.

    Once grouped, you can go into contacts on your phone, options then choose "display options" and select specific groups you wish your phone to display.

    Hope this helps!

    I'll look into that. For now, I think it was pulling Outlook 2010's "Suggested Contacts" list. Lame!

    Looks like since I deleted suggested contacts in outlook, it also removed the cache from Outlook itself. So now my list of people I've emailed in the past is severely reduced. Am I the only person on here that uses this with Exchange? I swear it seems like I am.

    Regardless, this is a huge disappointment.
