Possible to sync to Outlook contact items in folder other than CONTACTS?

Is it possible to sync Act's contact items to Outlook 2007 in a folder other than Contacts?  We have a very specific need NOT to sync the actual Contacts folder, but would still like to be able to access the Act contact info from within Outlook if possible.  Thank you very much,

Hello EWCorp,
Welcome to the Sage ACT! Community. ACT! Outlook contact sync can only sync to the default Contacts folder in Outlook, not to custom contact folders.

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.

Companionlink offers a solution for sync to a different folder, plus a few more customizable options.

Companion Link or 123 Synchronizer (which I find is a bit more reliable) are the only ways to do this.
