Hi. I have a laptop running Windows 7 with Outlook 2010. I have an iPhone 6.

 

1. How do I sync the calendars?

 

2. Is it possible to set these two up so that they wirelessly sync automatically?

 

Thanks.

Apparently I have to switch from a pop email account to an imap email account. My email provider permits me to do this. Is there a downside in switching to a imap email server?

So now my email service provider says that switching from pop to imap will only sync the email in general and the email subfolders on the website version of the email account. It will not automatically sync all of the folders and subfolders that I have on my Outlook on my PC.

 

More importantly for my purposes it will not sync my calendar and contacts at all.

 

So to sync my calendar and contacts from my Outlook to my iPhone what should I do?

 

Also is there a way to eliminate duplicates on calendar entries and address book entries?

 

Thanks.

Hal06,

 

In my experience with clients implementing iOS syncing; it causes nothing but headaches. It never seems to sync right, you get double notifications and it just ends up making everything far more complicated. My recommendation would be to install Outlook from the App store and give that a try.

 

I would also suggest making the switch to IMAP regardless of your choice, especially if you have the option to do so. The advantage is IMAP will store your messages on a server so all other devices download the messages so you can access all of your emails no matter what device you're using. POP downloads the messages from the server and stores it on the device and deletes it from the server, so you will only see it on the device that downloaded it.

 

Sorry for the late reply. Let me know how you make out with the Outlook app.

I know of a lot of individuals who sync Outlook calendar and contacts to iOS without issue.  The use of Outlook and iDevices are both so common that both sides of that equation want it to be easy to do so.

 

See the search results from:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=sync+outlook+calendar+to+ios&t=h_&atb=v91-1&ia=qa

 

Also, IMAP is the only way to go as far as your e-mail access protocol if you intend to access e-mail messages from multiple devices.  It was created such that synchronization between devices is part and parcel of the protocol, which was lacking in POP unless you did some very specific configuration tricks to make it occur (and most people don't, and have no idea of how to do what would need to be done).
