Hello knowledgeable ones:

Until last week I was using outlook 2003, an older versions of itunes, and an ipod, and was able to back up my outlook contacts and calender through itunes and right to the ipod, no problem.

Now, however, I have had to upgrade everything so they can handshake correctly. This has meant going to Outlook 2007, the latest itunes, an iphone 5, and the icloud. My entire goal is to have the contacts in outlook match the contacts in both the cloud and the phone.

In using the icloud control on both of these, I now have the following: a variety of calenders in my outlook with names like calender in icloud, home in icloud, and my calender, all in lovely pastel shades. The phone has one calendar with only the occasionally dupes on a given date.

The phone, however, is a disaster, with as many as three dupes of the same name. Looking at Outlook, I have a slew of contacts, some dupes, many that I though i had deleted from outlook. Also two categories of contacts, icloud and my contacts, with sub-directories in each. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that the contacts tab under my contacts was completely blank following a sync to the cloud, only to then find the other five versions, which, of course, I would like to have agree with each other. The icloud interface on line shows dupe contacts as well.

I understand that one person may not have all the answers to all the parts of this; I am on an iphone forum as well, trying to figure ... Read more

I've had this problem where a couple months ago my email stopped refreshing. To sort this I tried to delete the email from my computer and the re login. When I did this it deleted all my past emails and still won't retrieve my new ones. When I try to have a look at the sync settings it won't let me click on it. Anyone know how to fix it?

I've tried the following from Yahoo help and it does not work. BUT, I'm not using the generic Yahoo.com email but rather ATT/Yahoo where everything sits on an ATT email server. It all syncs perfectly with a client like Outlook, or eMClient, but now trying to use the ATT encouraged Yahoo webmail. I'm thinking the instr below are for a vanilla generic yahoo account, not an ATT/Yahoo account.

My goal is to have my iCloud calendar and contacts show up in Yahoo. Can this be done? The iPhone settings function seems to say "yes" as it has yahoo as an option and I have that set up apparently correctly since email is synced and has been from day one (iPhone 4s, so a long time).

Thanks for any guidance.

I use Google Drive, Box Sync, Dropbox and iCloud, but I am running out of disk space on my "C" Drive. It looks like my C Drive has 216 GB and I have an E Drive of 931 GB. My C Drive is almost full at 196 GB and made me turn off/unsync many of my Google Drive folders so I could save some of my files for work. My E Drive has almost 900GB available.

I am running iCloud on multiple PC's. Everything was fine until I had it running on two 8.1 PC's, then I started having problems.

In total, iCloud was running on one Win 7 Pro PC and two Windows 8.1 PC's. My theory is that the two Windows 8.1 PC's were syncing via iCloud and Skydrive (or Onedrive) which is set up by default. But they were able to read each other's settings okay. But Win 7 doesn't have the same sync settings, so the bookmarks were being written in 8.1 and then multiplying in Win 7.

I'm not sure, but this is my theory. Running on all Win 7 is okay. Running on all Win 8.1 seems okay. But combining the two OS's with iCloud seems to cause some problems.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

A:iCloud Creating Duplicate Bookmarks - Due to Win 8.1 Sync?

The only thing I would look at is to only use one cloud service if that is your suspect.

I am not hinting to use icloud but that is simple to stop by just removing the application. If you chose to use icloud this is how to disable onedrive.

I am running outlook 7 windows 7.

In the past, the problem was that the send date above emails in the to send folder said "none" and the email topic was bold faced, and not regular in italics. It will not send.

I resolved this [and SHOULD HAVE WRITTEN IT DOWN] by going to the trust center and I believe disabling the icloud item.

HOWEVER: subsequent to all this, I finally figured out how to sync my outlook calender [not outlook contacts, cloud contacts and iphone5 phone contacts are synced.

HOWEVER, the original problem is back, and windows shows that only calendar in icloud is synced, not "calendar" and not whatever "calendar from icloud in icloud" [just uncheck both and I eliminate dupes]

IF i start screwing around in the trust center and disabling the "icloud outlook ad-in", which I know played a role in getting the send to work, will I eliminate that "calendar in icloud" that continues to works so well? And if so, how do I get it back to sync with iphone 5?

A:How to fix a send issue WITHOUT screwing up my sync to icloud

Like you I am running Outlook 7 under Windows 7, 64 bit, and have version 3, the latest, for the iCloud control panel. And, like you, I have long ceased to attempt any kind of sync for anything other than the calender. If you go into the trust center and disable the icloud add in outlook will cease to sync with icloud. Indeed, only yesterday I ran a test: I added an appointment to my iphone and it did not appear on my outlook calendar. I had disabled the icloud add in before it was the only way to get anything to send from the outbox. As soon as I re enabled it the appointment appeared, only now I had the email issue.

It is interesting to note that when I went into the account settings in outlook to be sure the problem wasn't there, I was able to send the test message without issue, so it have to believe that all my pop server numbers are correct and the problem lies with the add in. Apple support blame Microsoft, who blames Apple. As with this entry, no almost a year old, I have never gotten any answers from this forum.

Should you have learned how to handle the issue, please let me know.

I currently use Outlook 2010 because I have a paid license but I'm willing to upgrade.

This works Ok with iCloud but what I don't like is that I can't make my icloud calendar the default in Outlook so I don't get reminders on my PC. What I end up doing is manually copying critical appointments from my icloud calendar to my Outlook default calendar if I want to be sure to get a reminder on my PC!. This isn't ideal though. Does anyone have a better solution? I read that the latest Outlook 2016 doesn't sync at all so I can't upgrade Office. I wish MS and Apple would decide to work together instead of trying to defeat each other!!

I believe icloud will sync with windows 10 mail and calendar apps - is that true?

I've also heard of emclient being good but haven't tried it.

I'd really appreciate any input.

I will start at the beginning, it has been a frustrating couple of days since I had to reformat my hard drive.

I reformatted and reinstalled Windows XP Pro sp1. I put the Microsoft firewall up to get the MS updates, and then I reinstalled Norton. I have a bug in my system that seems to be contained, for now that is.

I reinstalled office XP, and then i downloaded the update (SP3). I am not getting an alert that says that something is trying to get access to my Outlook contacts. I assume that it is my Hotmail account (yes, I do have the ability to download). I get the alert, click "OK" four or five times, and then Outlook locks up.

When I reformatted, I lost the software Sprint gave me to sync my Samsung i500 with Outlook. When I contacted them, they said tough, I had to buy more software. Frustrated, I broke down and bought Chapura. Now, I am probably so frustrated that I cannot get it started to sync even once.

Microsoft is now ignoring my requests for help to gain access to MSN mobile through my handheld. Does anyone have any infomration on how to get to msn mobile even though mobile.msn.com does not take me to a personalized homepage to get my information?

I am an intermediate user, so I know my way around a bit. I have a hijack this log available, as well as a Belarc run. Let me know if you need anything to help me with this problem. I am just frustrated.

Thanks.

I have windows 7 and outlook 2010 on a PC. When linking to icloud and enabling it to synch with icloud, icloud took the contacts off my computer (at least it seems that way). In trying to resolve the issue and talking with Apple and Omnitech, a variety of solutions were tried. I now have all my contacts in the right categories showing up on my PC, but it appears that they are not on the PC but in the cloud. My goal is to copy one of my categories, mailing list, into a  new separate folder in the folder list in order to use it to merge with Word and make labels. In the past, I could right click on the mailing list category and drag it to the new folder that I created. It would then ask if I wanted it to copy the file there or move it. I copied it to the new folder and then was able to merge it with word. Currently, when I try to drag the file to the folder, it indicates that this action can not be done. It appears to me that the reason this is occurring is that the contact file is in the cloud not on the computer.  ?? I would like to create a file with my contacts on the PC with the contacts in the right categories and not duplicating what is currently showing up from the cloud. I believe once I do this I will again be able to copy the category to the new folder.

Yesterday, my Outlook (2010) stopped retrieving e-mail from the Comcast server.  When I tried to fix it today, it still wouldn't work.  All the settings were correct, but it wouldn't retrieve my e-mail.  I deleted the account and recreated it.  Now, Outlook points to a new .pst file instead of my old Outlook.pst file, named [email protected]  To make matters worse, it doesn't delete the mail off the server.  Before, when I would open Outlook, it would download new message to my Inbox and delete them off the server.  The new messages would stay permanently in my Outlook inbox.  No more.  Now if I manually delete one through my Internet browser, it also deletes it out of my Outlook Inbox.  It’s as though the new account is just a window to the Comcast e-mail server.  I tried changing the Root Folder Path on the Advanced tab of the e-mail account settings to point to the location of my Outlook.pst folder, but that made no difference.  I also tried deleting a recent Microsoft update (KB3054976), but this did not help, either. This is a complete disaster for me, as I can't even send e-mail now, except through the server.  Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

A:Outlook 2010 e-mail account won't sync to Outlook.pst file

I figured this out.  When I reconfigured my e-mail account in Outlook, I used IMAP settings instead of POP3.  This was not how I did it before.  IMAP works great if one wants to keep all e-mail out on the server and access it from various devices.  That isn't what I do.  I changed the profile to POP3 and the poblem was solved.  Still don't know why it initially failed two nights ago, though.

I have used my Office Outlook 2016 syncing with my Msn.com email for years, and as of 10/12/16, my outlook started to have issues. Nothing I did on the outlook synced up with the online emails nor anything that attacked that account (my iPad/iPhone) but whatever I did on those reflected.

For example, I deleted out my junk on Outlook, and it would not reflect that change, but I was still getting new emails into my Outlook.

I tried a couple of things, then removed my msn.com email, and restarted. When I tried to reconnect back to my email, (add email) it would always restart office outlook. Has done this every single day, though I can retrieve and do everything from my apple products or through the online Outlook (aka outlook live). But since I have tons of windows open, I don't need to try to keep track of my email when outlook did this. (the office products)

To make it more interesting, my Gmail accounts are still all linked and working through the office outlook. (it's sad when google is working better than their Microsoft's own email system!) I have restarted, repaired and done everything, even checked my privacy settings which are all set up correctly.

Hello.

I use Outlook 2013 to manage my mails. I have different mailadresses from different hosters. Until now I used pop3 to retrieve my Mail, but now I want to synchronize my Mails between the Desktop-PC (Win 8.1) and the Tablet (Surface RT). Therefore I wanted to use my Outlook.com-adress, but actually this doesn't work as easy as I had expected. The Problem is, that I don't want to have severals In-Boxes, Out-Boxes etc for the different Mail-Accounts. With Pop3 I could receive all my mails in one single .pst-File. As far as I know this is not possible with the .ost-File, which is saved with the creation of a Exchange ActiveSync Account. And if I would accept two In-Boxes etc., so that I receive my Mails with the old Settings and move the Mails into the Outlook.com-Account, this also doenst work, because it isn't possible to move Mails from my .pst- to my .ost-File. The other way around it works.
Another possibility would be to forward the Mails to the outlook.com-Account, but then I wouldn't be able to send Mails from the different Accounts within Outlook.

So does anybody know a Solution for my Problem? I'll try to sum up what I want to do:
receive and send Mails from different hosters with Outlook 2013use my Outlook.com-Account to sync my mails, calender and contactsuse as little as possible In-Boxes, Out-Boxes etc.if necessary - moving Mails from one Account to the Outlook.com-account to synchronize

Can I drag a copy of my outlook PST file (or the whole folder) into my briefcase that I keep on the tablet pc so that I can use outlook calendar for booking next appointments and then any changes I make to outlook calendar out on the road will be synced to my home outlook once I return.

At the moment, I'm syncing my home outlook to my Nokia N73 which is great apart from the crappy keypad which makes to-do notes etc a bit time consuming.

Hope all this makes sense - I think there may be issues with syncing outlook (something to do with exchange) but I don't know much about that

Many times a password will be "padded" to a greater length, helps prevent guessing at that the password is if someone is looking over your shoulder. One nice thing with Win10 is most password boxes have a eye with eyebrow at the right end, click and hold to see the actual letters. Release the mouse and it's hidden again.

As for Outlook, kindly use the proper names. Outlook is part of Microsoft Office and is an installed E-Mail Client. That is not to be confused with Outlook.com which is a Web/Online E-Mail function as is Hotmail.com. The Mail app in Win10 seems to give lots of people trouble. Historically we started using Outlook Express over 15 years... Read more

I do my quotes etc. I normally do short jobs so I'm running back and forth to the computer and engraver. During the afternoon I do the long engraving jobs, and go upstairs to use the WIN 98 computer. My machines are loud, and that is where I go to make phone calls etc to get away from the noise for a while.

I have been wishing that their were a sync program that would do the same thing as you read about for syncing to your palms or phones - but do this principle between two computers on a home network. I did a search and found a program called "Sync and Save". I had no problem setting up the program, and tried it on a couple of dupicate files - with minor additions on both. I tried the bi-directional sync. It worked great! It said it could do the same thing for MS Outlook 2000. Sounds good - but what file extensions to do look for under the program file. I tried a find for .pst files. nothing. I know I use this to export when I wish to back up everything. I went to the MS website - no help. Tried the help menu within the program. LOL it tells you how to find file ext - but not what file extension outlook 2000 uses to you can identify them on your hard drive. UGH! I em... Read more

A:outlook 2000 and sync

Outlook stores all its data in one file called "outlook.pst." It may be that you just need to tell Windows to show hidden files...otherwise, the search feature won't find it.

On both computers, open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer), go to Tools>Folder Options>View tab, find and check "Show hidden files and folder," click OK.

I have Microsoft Outlook on desktop and notebook (and probably ipad as well).

I just wish I could set it up that I only receive current mail on whatever computer I am on, instead of all three of them downloading the same mail, which means if I delete an email on desktop for instance, I then have to delete it manually from the others. I just seem to have the same email everywhere. Is there a way of just receiving emails on whatever computer I am on - and them not coming up on the other computers?

Hi there,
I recently upgraded my Outlook to 365 due to buying a domain, which is being hosted by GoDaddy. By upgrading it then deleted another email account which is being hosted by Hostica. I've tried numerous times to reload the Hostica profile back into Outlook365 but it refuses to connect to the server. I have deleted all profiles and now when I set up a new profile Outlook goes into "Not Responding" mode. Please help!

So I installed Office 2010 a few weeks back, and since then I haven't been able to use HTC sync to back up contacts, calendar entries or anything to at all to do with Outlook. I keep getting the same damn error:

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

I figured this was incompatibility since Outlook 2010 was new at the time and HTC Sync had been released beforehand. The problem though, is that there's been a new version of HTC Sync since, with a completely new style and everything, but it still doesn't work.

Has anyone sorted this problem out?

I had trouble syncing my MS Outlook calendar with my HTC Desire - appointments would go in one direction, but not the other. Several sources suggested this was because I was using an old version of Outlook (2002, so seemed fair criticism). However, since I have upgraded to Outlook 2010, HTC Sync doesn't shift Calendar information in either direction! The 'Calendar' option on the HTC Sync screen is greyed out. There is some kind of connection between phone and PC (Win XP SP3), because I have succeeeded in moving photos, so this seems likely to be a software issue. Any suggestions?

Sorry.....I meant it to say MS Outlook on 2 laptops or online ?
Finally picked up new laptop (bought 2 years ago!) in the States so I now have two running. I have been using 2007 Professional Plus on the old laptop and have just installed it on the newer one.

What is the best way of syncing these two Outlooks? Hopefully.........free.

OR

I only use Outlook for Emails (4 accounts), Calendar with birthdays etc, and Contacts with basic information. So, since I really do not take full advantage of Outlook, is there something free online where I use all my accounts in one place......like outlook?
BTW, if it helps, my accounts are all with gmail and yahoo uk.
