    Windows 10 Mobile Syncing Issues With Outlook Account Emails/Contacts


    Hi,

    Hopefully this is the right arena to post this thread in/under..*Confused
    I recently purchased a AT&T branded Lumia 950, and running Production OS: 10.0.10586.164, and latest Firmware: 01078.00038.160025.39033, I'm having issues with Outlook.com email syncing and losing contacts in Outlook.com on the mobile device?

    I only have two email accounts, Outlook.com and Gmail...all Gmail syncing of emails and contacts in fine, however Outlook.com takes time to sync, and loses contacts! I have done a lot of research...on this and see many 'Feedback issues' on this topic:
    I have hard reset the device from a complete, clean install, and utilized the Windows Device Recovery Tool too...no Insider Program-either..still issues with Outlook.com syncing emails, but the contacts not syncing is quite troubling....I have not lost Outlook.com contacts like others have reported! I keep a relatively small, very clean contact list...all Gmail account contacts are fine as is syncing..

    I reviewed where another Lumia 950XL user chatted with MS Customer Support and they suggested to create a new Microsoft account.....then sync all info, contacts, OneDrive, Skype, People app, however Microsoft accounts can not be merged.. I have a @MSN.com------>as my Primary alias, with a Outlook.com alias, but see no way to create a new Microsoft account, without losing everything....

    Any advice here would be greatly appreciated....and apologies if indeed this thread is in the wrong category..

    '18/03/2016, 1645: SOLUTION FOR EMAIL/CONTACTS SYNCHRONISATION: Will be trying this tonight, will create another hotmail account and then transfer contacts from the problematic hotmail account to the new hotmail account and then link the new hotmail account to the 950 XL and then Synchronise (<-- This Worked!)'

    The above was quoted from the Microsoft Answer forums---Windows Mobile 10-Lumia 950 Issues

    Thanks for moving this to the more appropriate arena..*Smile Mods

  3. n97 mini and contact on mail

    This is possible through syncing with MS Outlook, if you are using Windows (have no idea for Mac).

    Using Ovi Suite, you sync your mobile phone to MS Outlook which in turn syncs it to your mail account, making the contact list on Email, Outlook, Ovi and your phone identical.

    Windows 10 Mobile Syncing Issues With Outlook Account Emails/Contacts

    Well, I see that the People app was updated yesterday for both Windows 10 PC and Mobile 10...syncing now seems better, however a couple of contacts (Outlook.com account) still do not sync/show up from my PC to my Lumia 950...no biggie as I just can't afford to lose a ton of info:
    All Microsoft services, Office 2016, Skype, OneDrive, Contacts..so I will deal with it...lol!

    'Note

    If you remove an alias from an EASI account, that address will immediately become available to anyone else who wants to use it.

    If you remove an @Hotmail or an @MSN email address, it cannot be recovered. '

    Just for 'peace-of-mind', I have contacted MS Support (as they will have access to sensitive account information, and report back here when I receive a answer...lol

    I'm having exact same issue, starting around the same time. I'm wondering if it's related to migration of accounts to the new Outlook.com experience. What support did you contact as I'd like to go through it with the same branch

    This was the result of my Answer Desk experience and a reset of my phone:
    "Rey E
    Alright. I have forwarded the case to the Accounts Escalations Team. There is not ongoing server upgrade however accounts are on the process of migration. That means accounts will be transferred to a new server. The turnaround time provided by the team is 2-3 hours.
    4:03 pm"

    So let's see...

    @Jarett,

    Ok m8, lets see if we can solve this through MS Support services, as I too feel that this is a MS server upgrade issue with various Outlook accounts being affected by the migration process...In fact, I have quoted your above case that was forwarded to the Accounts Escalations Team...Here is where I contacted them: Microsoft Customer Support

    Hi,
    Thank you for getting back to us. My name is Feverlyn and I will be assisting you today.
    As long as you can view your emails in People page (https://people.live.com) and in the People app on your Windows 10 PC, your account is doing well. Since this issue is only happening on a Windows Phone and you have already tried hard reset on it, we have a separate department that has the expertise and handle this type of concern. We suggest you to get in touch with our Windows Phone Support Team. You can reach them through this link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/mobile/support/contact/
    We hope this information helps in addressing this issue. If you have any concern with Outlook.com, please contact us again and we’ll gladly assist you with it.
    Regards,

    Really, ok...as I have manually added the 'missing outlook.com contacts' for now...thankfully not that many, I think that I will be patient and wait until the Outlook.com team (Windows 10 Mobile) gets it more consistent..lol
