After updating Sailfish to 4.0.1, WhatsApp can no longer access any contact information that is stored only on my Exchange account. Contacts that are stored locally can be accessed.
Sailfish version 126.96.36.199 with and Exchange account configures and WhatsApp installed.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
- Update Sailfish to 188.8.131.52
- Configure an Exchange account with contacts stored on server. Set contacts to be synchronized with phone. Check from Sailfish People app that contacts get properly synchronized.
- Install WhatApp and configure it.
- Check WhatsApp’s contacts to see that any contact information stored on server is no longer available.
All contact information that can be seen in People app should also be seen in WhatsApp.
Any contact information that is stored on remote server is not available in WhatsApp.
