    Outlook 2016 to Windows Phone --Can't sync contacts and calendar


    A widespread problem? My Outlook 2016 Mail is performing normally in Windows 10 and syncing mail with my phone. However...I cannot sync my calendar or contacts into my Lumia 735. I get hints (nothing specific) from online searching that since my service provider (Time Warner) doesn't use MS Exchange, that the syncing can't be done. Can anyone verify that?
    My mail is transferred cleanly, but contacts and calendar won't come over to the phone.
    Any ideas about a solution?

  2. I can not get outlook calendar to sync with phone or google calendar.

    I have tried both outlook.com and office 2016 outlook and neither syncs well. Some items sync and others don't. My phone calendar and google calendar sync perfectly but the sync to outlook calendars is hit or miss and I can't seem to find the reason.

    Windows 10 Mail App - Sync issues when set to "anytime" in account settings

    OK, further update... Buying MS Office 365 and using Outlook 2016 solved my e-mail inbox issue. However, the calendar and contacts in Outlook won't sync with Google calendar and contacts. Argh... I thought Outlook 2016 was supposed to allow synchronization
    of mail, calendars, and contacts all in one place. I guess now I will need to use the Windows 10 calendar and contacts apps to keep my calendar and contacts synchronized across multiple devices. I wonder how that will work for meeting invites via e-mail.
    Outlook 2016 seems to work fine to keep my 6 mo inbox synchronized, but I found that I can't seem to see gmail "all mail" as a folder in Outlook 2016. I guess this is OK for me. I will just have to handle future gmail archive or search-all-mail actions using
    the web interface. Awkward, but probably workable.

    Anyone have a better solution???

    Thank you. Your solution may be the way to go.
    Does your answer imply that you also have a second mail account with another provider and that it will not sync your contacts?

    I do have other email phone accounts but prefer to keep my contact data in one place. I also have a GMail account on the phone and I can confirm when I press + to add a contact, it picks up the contact list from the People app which is synched to my Microsoft/People account. I can't vouch for other email accounts.

    Steve,
    Your reply gave me the answer. For some reason Microsoft.com seems to insist on locking up the listing of both calendar and contacts. I have no idea why this is, but when I added Microsoft.com (which I hardly ever use) to the account listing, the contacts and calendar items popped right up.

    I think you need the MS account to enable your the phone can synch the contact data on your MS account (people.live) and this data then becomes available to other phone apps.
