    synchronising outlook on android


    I have Office 365 on my PC, and use Outlook for my appointments, contacts etc. My principal email account is with gmail, which I normally access via Outlook.

    I've just installed Outlook on my smartphone (Samsung A3) so that I can have my calendar, contacts and email on hand when I need them. The problem is that I now need to synchronise it; the calendar, for example, is currently empty while on my PC it is full of appointments and events.

    How can do this?



    :)

    Outlook Mail for Android


    After an afternoon of fiddling with my Moto phone, I configured the phone as follows since I mainly use Outlook for contacts and appointments.

    1. Android Outlook app for IMAP accounts, Gmail & Outlook email. Built in GMail app disabled.
    2. Built in Contacts app used linked to Outlook account as default (I've no idea why it wouldn't synch to Gmail)
    3. Android Outlook app used for Calendar and built in Calendar app disabled.


    All now works fine. I can't find a way of controlling push notification for the Outlook app but at least it all works and synchs.

  3. Problem with synchronising calendar with Outlook on laptop

    I'm afraid my problem has not been resolved.

    My

    The calendar on www.calendar.live.com does show any entries made on my phone and synchronises immediately.

    Entries to my calendar made in Outlook on my PC, show on my phone calendar, but not on the www.calendar.live.com website.

    Entries made on my phone don't show in Outlook on my PC.

    On my phone, I have four email accounts:

    • Microsoft account
    • Yahoo! Mail (with same email address as above)
    • Live
    • Outlook.com (both Live and Outlook.com have same email address).

    As I said, emails and contacts seem to be working fine and both synchronise. It's just calendar entries.

    Any more suggestions, please?

    Outlook 2010 Not Synchronising New Details with MS People Live Account


    I have Outlook 2010 on two PCs and use the Hotmail Connector to synchronise my contacts with my Microsoft Account (people.live.com).

    I can create/delete contacts on any PC and at the web page at people.live.com and these will synchronise across all accounts. However, if I change details of an existing contact on the PC e.g. change the phone number) then this is not synchronised. If I change the details on the web page at people.live.com then the PCs do get updated. Has anyone any advise how to troubleshoot this problem to ensure that changes to contact details in Outlook 2010 are synchronised correctly across all accounts?
