Just tried to create a new contacts folder in Outlook manually...
Microsoft Outlook
Cannot create the folder. Calendar, task, and contact folders cannot be created in Exchange ActiveSync accounts.

When I set up Outlook I just took the defaults... just tried setting up the account again an no option to change.

Just tried to add a folder manually from within Outlook again ...
Microsoft Outlook
This account or directory type already exists and cannot be specified twice

The test account I set up is an "Exchange ActiveSync" version.
Tried to create a new account and did not get option to change it for outlook.com address.

There is an option to create a "mobile directory" for the contacts folder, but using that may screw up someones actual contacts as I'll have to distribute this code eventually.

Ok, if the account doesn't allow to create the folder, then that's it.
