Hi, I have edited out the first part of your question as it is covered here… – row1 Nov 24 '12 at 3:55
Not sure if that belongs to WindowsPhone site... – Sascha Nov 24 '12 at 11:42
Maybe you can confirm what you want to accomplish? I assume that you want your contacts to sync to your Gmail account and also sync to another email account of your choice? – row1 Nov 24 '12 at 12:14

I don't think this feature exist. It's not hard yet not trival to know the sync direction: from google to yahoo or vice versa.

For me using the built in import / saving to CSV (good backup) is the easy choise, (It does not keep my contact updated).

I thing that for ongoing sync someone will have to create an app and even then you will need to run it manually.

You don't, as you basically do not need to: all contact information from all connected accounts are shown in the single People Hub on your phone.

If you have a specific use case where you need to move/migrate/sync contact information between different accounts or account types, you will need to look to a third party software solution that will enable you to do this.
