    How to Synch. Outlook 2010 Mail & Contacts with Microsoft Account?


    I keep contact details in my Microsoft account (at Sign in to your Microsoft account). I've been using Outlook 2010 with the Microsoft Outlook Hotmail Connector and this used to synchronise my contacts fine.

    However, for a while now, I've noticed mail synchronisation errors and I've had to configure my Microsoft mail account to use the standard IMAP settings (not via the Hotmail connector).

    However, this method no longer synchronises my contacts. How do you configure the mail and contact settings in Outlook 2010 to synchronise both mail and contacts in Outlook 2010 with my Microsoft account?

    :)

  2. NOS 2.1 - Outlook sync issue

    Can anyone please share how do you enable the manual synching of calendar and to do entries between PC Suite 7.1 with Outlook 2010 Beta x64?



    My PC suite version is 7.1.40.1



    My error is "Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fullfill the messaging request. Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client."



    Outlook 2010 64-bit is up and running.

    How to Synch. Outlook 2010 Mail & Contacts with Microsoft Account?

    I solved it! One complication was that my Microsoft email address is personalised and doesn't end in .outlook.com. The procedure is:

    • Uninstall the Outlook Hotmail Connector since this no longer works.
    • If your MS Outlook email address doesn't end in .outlook.com then you need to create an email alias online in your MS account which does end in .outlook.com
    • Add a new account using the account wizard using your MS Outlook email address ending in .outlook.com (which can be an alias)
    • The account should configure quite quickly. You then have to restart Outlook 2010 and it will download and synchronise all emails, contacts etc.
