    Hi All,
    Problem:
    I am using Nexus 5X with OTA update to MDB08I (Android M/6.0). After configuring my work account (Exchange), I found that contacts search will not display any information from Exchange server.
    Background/Details:
    I looked at Accounts for Exchange account settings, and found that Sync Contacts is enabled.
    Search for the contact or e-mail doesn't list details from Exchange server on Nexus 5X (contact details exists in the Exchange Server) in the following scenarios.
    1. A contact search in the Contacts App (Stock Android App). It used to list the contact match in Nexus 5 (Stock 4.4->OTA-4.4.x->...>OTA-5.x) as Directory Listings and then person contact details.
    2. Type a name/email address in GMail (Stock Android App) app compose screen. It used to list the Name and E-mail address in Nexus 5 (Stock 4.4->OTA-4.4.x->...>OTA-5.x).

    Is any one facing this issue?
    Can some one help me to resolve this issue (if they have a work-around or solution)?
    If there is no work-around or solution at this moment, can some one point me to the Android bug page (I searched for the bug pages and developer discussion pages but couldn't find the proper listings)?

    Thank you.

    Welcome to Android Central! In the Contacts app, tap Menu>Contacts to Display. Is All Contacts selected, or Customize?

    When you said you looked at Accounts, do you mean Settings>Accounts​, in the main System Settings?

    Yes. Settings and Accounts and Exchange. Under the exchange account I see emails, contacts and calendar selected for sync

    I can't figure out yet if that's possible. In the meantime, you might consider exporting your contacts to a .csv file, then importing them to your Google Contacts in the cloud. Then manage your contacts exclusively with Google Contacts from now on. https://support.office.com/en-za/art...a3bcfcd892#bm2

    Thank you. exporting to csv is a good one. But the problem will be the Outlook contacts should be exported regularly (every day probably due to updates in the organization). I will wait till next update and see if that changes. If it doesn't, then I should consider having Android L instead of Android M.

    Hey I believe I found a solution. In the setup for outlook app there's an "account" session, where you can enable the app to sync the contacts. It appears that the synchronizing requires authorization from both apps.
