Answer Please check the task log of the AutoUpload task.
If you find log entries similar to the following after login in each session:

[2005/11/10 16:28:14] COMMAND-0:> CWD \
[2005/11/10 16:28:14] 550 Failed to change directory.
[2005/11/10 16:28:14] ERROR-0:> Remote directory not found.
[2005/11/10 16:28:14] COMMAND-0:> QUIT
[2005/11/10 16:28:14] 221 Goodbye.

That means you have put '\' in the "Initial Remote Folder" field in the Address Book Site Settings | General tab. '\' is not recognized as a legal path name on most of the FTP servers. You must use forward slash '/' to represent the remote root folder. You need to make sure Schedule Task Settings | General | Remote Folder is a valid remote path name too.
