Why do some programs only report ONE email address per contact?

    I was using Touchdown to send an email and noticed it only listed one email address for a contact that has several. This seemed like a huge limitation of Touchdown but... then I looked at Youlu address book and it only had one as well. You can't bring up the others at all.

    The native contacts and mail clients show all of the email addresses. It appears that the one marked a "primary" is the one that shows in all the other programs.

    Is this just the way it is? Or is there a way to access all of the email addresses in Touchdown and other third party apps?

    Thanks!

    Touchdown doesn't use the built-in contacts. That might be your problem. Does the contact have multiple email addresses in Touchdown's contacts? If so, ask in the Touchdown Google Group.

    No, it does not. I don't know why it doesn't carry over all of the email addresses. ??
