After a GSuite migration to Microsoft Office 365, users receive the following error message when they try to create or edit their contacts in the Outlook desktop client:
You don't have permission to create an entry in this folder. Right-click the folder, and then click Properties to check your permissions for the folder. See the folder owner or your administrator to change your permissions.
The service fix prevents future occurrences of the issue but does not retroactively address the issue if already in the bad state.
