How to sync Outook 2010 (non-corporate) with Windows phone?

Question: How to sync Outook 2010 (non-corporate) with Windows phone?

I know there have been some posts going back over a year, but none of them fully solve this issue. For years, the best way to sync Outlook 2010(without corporate exchange server) to the windows phone has been to use the Google Calendar connector to get to their cloud and then onto the Windows phone. This had the advantage of doing two-way synchronization and working with the default calendar in Outlook (the existing .PST file).
Google fully discontinued this service on August 1. Microsoft does not have as simple a solution. The two options I've seen for cloud syncing are to use the Microsoft Hotmail Connector and to use Google App Sync. The Hotmail Connector does not work with the default Outlook profile which means than when an invitation is received from any email account other than hotmail/outlook.com it saves to the default calendar, and you then have to copy it to the hotmail calendar in order to sync. The Google App Sync requires a whole different profile with a migration which is an equally big headache or possibly greater. So, neither of these options work without making a lot of manual intervention.
I've been using a local sync program called CompanionLink to sync contacts, notes and tasks. It can sync the calendar but has a couple of disadvantages. 1) you need to manually sync calendar which is not good if constantly on the go and always want to have your appointments. 2) CompanionLink does not feed appointments into the native calendar so it won't appear on the lock screen. Also, CompanionLink live tile does not show appointments. So, the beauty of the Windows Phone is largely made pointless.
If anyone has figured out the best way to do this, please let me know. I'm sure there are many other people with the same problem as of August 1. Maybe Microsoft wants to quickly build the connector that Google managed to do???
thanks, -jon

Preferred Solution: How to sync Outook 2010 (non-corporate) with Windows phone?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: How to sync Outook 2010 (non-corporate) with Windows phone?

Frankly the best solution is to sign up for MS Office 365. The cheapest plan (Exchange Online) is $4 per month per user, so for $48/year, you'll get seamless sync of contacts, calendar, tasks, and if you choose, email and more, across Outlook and Windows Phone.
Not free, but works much better than Google's App Sync, the Hotmail Connector, and any of the local sync solutions, and it'll work great with any other devices you add in to sync with (since everything supports EAS).

It worked fine under the old Outlook. It seems to need loads of time to populate the Contacts file, and some of the details still have not filled in fully yet. Can anyone shed light on this issue

Answer:Help using Outook 2010

If it is only that one Email, I would guess Outlook classes it as a security risk/virus/trogan and will not allow it.You could check the security settings (may be set too high)or if it is an attachment, you may have to save it first, before trying to open it.Terry

Here we go again - another problem with Outlook, but this time I think it is Yahoo UK (please note UK):

I have had 1 email acct with gmail and 2 email accts with Yahoo UK. They have worked fine until a few days ago. When I try send/receive one Yahoo account came up with error 0x800CCC92. I finally removed it and when I tried putting it in as new, the test message would not work. After repeated attempts, I now can send for some reason, but for receiving I get:

Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): Your email server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password for this account in Account Settings. The server responded: -ERR (AUTH) Incorrect username or password.

I can access my email on the web for that account with no problem. All of the settings are exactly the same as the Yahoo account that works and I still cannot get the incoming to work on this one.

Any ideas?

I am operating on Windows 7 OS and am having difficulty with Outlook for Office 2010. It always asks for a password each time I sign on and when I open an email. For some reason it doesn't store my password.
 

Answer:Outook 2010 always requires password

That problem is by no means unique to Outlook 2010, it happens also on Outlook 2007 and on the version before that, and neither is it unique to Windows 7.

Try putting your POP3 server name and password into the "Credential Manager" in Control Panel. For good measure I entered my email credentials twice -- in "Windows Credentials" and in "Generic Credentials". I hardly see that pesky password prompt since doing that.

The company I work for requires that when syncing corporate email (Exchange) it must be pin locked. This policy can be put into effect either by pin locking the phone itself or by locking the email app.
I don't want to put a pin on my phone itself. On Android there are apps like Touchdown or Nine that have good interfaces with pin to unlock when accessing the app. Those don't appear to be available on Windows Phone. Are there equivalent apps on Windows Phone? They can be paid, as long as they function well.
Alternatively, is there an option to pin to unlock a particular mailbox on the Windows Phone native app? Thanks for the info.

Answer:Is there a corporate email app on Windows Phone that does pin to unlock?

Why did windows take down the windows phone app in the mac app store. I am unable to sync my phone to my macbook.

Answer:Mac OSX and Windows Phone, how can I sync them?

Same post as in other thread:
Allow me to be frank: Microsoft does not care or take care of its WP users who run OSX.
Microsoft has officially discontinued the syncing app, not even allowing users to download it anymore. Not only that, but they didn't announce it or give Mac users any sort of alternative, instead telling users who complain to try to find a 3rd-party app.
Your only options are: use Windows; try to transfer all your music with Music Drop. If you're on a Lumia where your music will be saved on your SD card, you'll need to use the Tag Editor to app to fix the album art. If you're on a Lumia where your music will be saved on your phone, you just needed to restart after transferring.
This is the nail in the coffin for me. I switched to iPhone, and now Microsoft has a 0% chance of winning be back.

Now that Zune is gone how do I sync/add music to my Nokia Lumia 800?

Answer:Windows Phone won't sync

With Zune 4.8, it still works with Windows 8. Zune won't be officially gone until Windows Phone 8 is release in the fall, that's probably when support will be dropped for it.

Some rumors are swirling about that Windows Phone 8 will act like a flash drive to Windows, meaning you just copy and paste content over to it from Computer like you would with an android device. That MIGHT happen with the new Windows Phone 7.8 update later next month or two. But that kind gives rise to the issue of syncing content over and managing the content on it, as that's the reason why the idevices and Windows Phone are better than android because of an external managing client of iTunes and Zune.

You have the Lumia 800? How is that like? That looks real cool! I have the Lumia 900 and I was waiting to see if the 800 was going to make it to the US as that is a NICE looking phone, as it the 900.

Hi, just got my new Lumia 830, and I've stuck trying to sync bookmarks with IE11. I've checked the setting on the phone and setup One Drive on the PC. Nothing seems to be happening. How does the sync work? I can't find a setting in One Drive that selects the location of the Favourites folder or options to choose which bookmarks to sync.

Answer:How do I sync IE favorites with Windows phone?

I don't think you get to select which ones sync (although I could be wrong). If there's a "Phone" folder in your IE favourites and you're using the same Microsoft account on both devices they should just sync up. Make sure any relevant-sounding "sync" type settings are active on both PC (assuming Windows 8 or higher) and phone too. It "just happened" in my setup, so I don't think there's any particular trick to it.

i have tried everything from uninstalling MDC, running the upgrade, reinstalling drivers, unchecking the settings within the device, and anything i could find online about the issue, yet still nothing will work.

Can someone please help me!

i believe it has to do with the install possibly, and somthing went wrong, becuase none of my pocket pcs will sync to this OS, and they work fine on other vista/7 systems. is there a way to reinstall/fix that part of the installation? or do i need to format and redo? i thought that maybe one of the updates would fix the problem, but after all the updates iv done in the last couple months, still nothing has changed it.

PLEASE HELP, im really frustrated!

Hi, I have an Exchange account and Windows account synced to my Windows Phone. I'm leaving the company so I want to make sure I still keep my Exchange contacts. When I go to outlook.com I can see only few of my contacts are there, the ones that are only in Exchange aren't.
So my real question is where does it sync this information? Is it only available on my phone right now and my exchange account? Or is it possible to make sure everything is synced to my Windows Live ID without manually importing it with Outlook?

Answer:Does every account on Windows Phone Sync to the cloud?

There will come a time when you won't be allowed back into Exchange if it is corporate and you are no longer part of the corporation.
You would have to export from Exchange and Import into outlook. For security reasons you may not be able to do this. Especially if the company considers Exchange contacts their proprietary information.
Check with corporate IT about how to proceed.

I currently have an android phone and use gsyncit to sync my tasks and calendar with Google calendar and tasks. I then have gmail pulling emails and leaving them on my web site host's email server via POP3. This works fairly well but is the email part is kind of clumsy and I can spend lots of time sorting emails in gmail that are already all sorted on my PC's outlook.

My dream is to have a mini-outlook on a Windows 8 phone and Windows 8 tablet that stays in sync with my Outlook on my PC (and vise versa) via the skydrive cloud service - no more messing with re-filtering email, deleting garbage emails I already deleted on my PC. Things on my new W8 phone and tablet would mirror my PC right down to the filtering rules and folders.

The hub of most of my work is currently Outlook 2007. My thinking is the new Windows 8 phone and tablet with Outlook 2013 and Windows 8 PC would give me super productivity no matter where I am at and what device I am using.

I have been doing a lot of reading on Office 15/Windows 8 and understand it syncs documents across devices but I can't find much about simple, automatic email sync.

So I guess my question is, will there be a common Win8 Outlook app that will allow my to keep in sync across Win8 devices or will I still be stuck in my sync hodgepodge world of Outlook syncing on outlook.com instead of gmail?

Answer:Windows 8 PC - Tablet - Phone email sync

Hopefully MS will shed some light on Outlook integration during the Windows 8 Phone event on Wednesday. I can't seem to find anything online about this. If there is no cross device Outlook integration with auto syncing, the only plus to a windows 8 phone would be Zune Pass integration. I love Zune pass.

Does anyone know a way to sync Outlook (2003 on Windows 7) to a Windows Phone (Windows Mobile 6, Blackjack) using either USB or Bluetooth? It would seem that Windows would rather I upload the whole thing to the cloud and sync from the net. Problem is I don't have net service on my phone contract and I don't want it. Basically if I bought a data package for my phone to do this I'd be paying $15 a month just to sync my calendar. It's much cheaper to do it manually I guess.

The irony of it all is I can sync most other things. Contacts, email addresses, even incoming emails via the USB cable. But a calendar? Noooooo, that's gotta be a PITA.

To do this you require Windows Mobile Deviec Center as it also states that it is compatible for Windows 7, which I am sure you probably already have.
it also syncs your OutLook contacts as well.

(WMDC) is a programm designed by Microsoft to replace the old ActiveSync by Microsoft, I can guaranty that it will work with ActiveSync
because it specificly says that ActiveSync was designed to be compatable and sync with OutLook!
Says it here and it's also compatable with Windows 7 http://www.microsoft.com/windowsphone/en-us/howto/wp6/sync/installing-activesync.aspx

Is there a way to have Outlook 2010 sync it's To-Do bar with a Windows Live webmail calendar?

I'm using Outlook 2010+latest version of Outlook Connector +Windows Live webmail. Calendar sync works fine in both directions but the Outlook To-Do bar only displays upcoming events from the local "Outlook" calendar, not my @live.com calendar (even though in the Outlook calendar pane the local calendar is unchecked and the @live.com calendar is checked).

Answer:Outlook 2010: sync To-Do bar with Windows Live/Hotmail calendar?

You can definitely do that, here's how:

1. Click on the File tab.
2. On the Info screen (should be the default one that appears after clicking "File") click the "Account Settings" drop-down button.
3. Then click on "Account Settings" to go to the Account Settings screen.
4. Once at the Account Settings dialog box, click the "Data Files" tab.
5. Select your default e-mail account that you wish to sync your calendar with. (This would be your @LIVE account.)
6. All set! Enjoy your new To-Do bar with updated @Live calendar information.

This will also change a couple other beneficial settings, such as auto-recognizing contacts that are on your LIVE e-mail account.

From Microsoft Outlook:

"The default Outlook Data File contains the calendar that appears in the To-Do Bar and settings for Favorites, shared folders, and RSS feeds."

Hope that works!

How do I sync Outlook calendar directly to my Nokia Lumia phone? I am looking for an easy, accurate and reliable option without going through the cloud. I would prefer something wireless, if that's possible. (I'm not on Exchange.)
I did check Microsoft's tech support -- it says to go through Hotmail, Windows Live or Outlook.com. I don't want to go through those services and manual importing isn't an option. Everything I've read says that Microsoft Phone won't directly sync with Outlook on a PC. Seriously?

Answer:Sync Outlook with Nokia Lumia Windows Phone

Go to settings>email+accounts>then manually sync your microsoft account. This should sync your calendar unless you using a dummy account with your phone. My phone syncs with my windows 8 pc (including Calender) with no problem.

Just got myself a Samsung S3 over the weekend, and for the most part I love it! I've run into a few problems with it, mostly due to me coming from an iphone, and getting used to the new controls, apps, etc...

Anyway, I found an app that acts similar to iTunes called Kies, which allows me to sync my phone to my computer (running Win8), do backups and restores, etc...

The problem is that when I connect the phone my computer, it will occasionally deactivate my copy of Windows (which is legit, and I have the receipt from MS to prove it!). I click the button to activate it, and get an error message (which I can't recall at the moment). I looked it up online, and what I found shocked me...

Apparently there's something in the phone that is causing Win 8 to deactivate itself, and you cannot reactivate it unless you unplug the phone. So I unplugged the phone, and sure enough, I was able to reactivate Windows.

I have had to do this about 5 times so far, and not looking to have to keep doing this. Has anyone else run into this problem and been able to solve it permanently (without getting a new phone)?

I have a nokia 920 and I use Bluetooth in my car that pulls the data from my phone. The data is saved locally to the phone. (usually loads song name and artist)
I recently upgraded to windows 8.1 on my phone. Since then only about half my music data shows on my Bluetooth. I have tried using other music apps. I have tried comparing ID3 tags to the ones that do work and see no difference. I've tried removing songs and readding them.
I installed a tag editor and removed the tags and recreated them. The data still will not load on the Bluetooth. I am not going to reset back to defaults to fix this because this is my third issue with this device that would have caused me to do that. Anyone got anything that has worked to get the info to load in the Bluetooth? It's only some files doing it and I can find no correlation between ones that do allow it and ones that do not. I've even reripped some from cd's without any luck.

Answer:Why does only some song data sync over Bluetooth on Windows phone 8.1?

Is it possible that the music which is skipped is DRM protected music?
Below text is part of the below linked article.
Audio or video files that are DRM protected cannot be properly shared via Bluetooth connection. The files may be transferred and even stored in a phones xBox Music hub, but you wont be able to play them on the phone since the DRM protection on the file is not transferrable to a phone via Bluetooth sharing and the DRM protection will prevent the files from being played on the phone. DRM-related protections cannot be transferred or circumvented when sharing files via Bluetooth connection.

Is it possible to sync iPhone Contacts and Calendar with my Windows Phone? If so please give mr very simple directions. I have 2000 contacts with notes etc and don't have the time or heart to type all of this info into my HTC M8 phone.

Answer:Is it possible to sync iPhone Contacts and Calendar with my Windows Phone?

Your iPhone calendars and contacts are stored in an account. If you created these contacts in a third party email, like gmail, then you can just sign into that account with your Windows Phone, and you are done. If the contacts are saved in an iCloud account, then it will be a little harder, but it appears that there are ways to export contacts and calendars from iCloud to formats that you could import into a Microsoft account.

Hi

I had posted this question in a few android/phone based forums and unfortunately no one there that can offer a solution. Hence, I joined here and looking for a solution and I am sure it is doable as one of my other phone is able to do it so basically it must be something to do with the settings on the phone or installing an additional pieve of software or app. Here is the question....

I am trying to connect to my office wifi which uses a proxy server.

Scenario 1: I am using Samsung Bada (wave 1), connected to the internet successfully and also any applications that require an internet connection including Samsung's app store.

While, connecting via open networks like home wifi and other friends' wifi also worked without any issue.

Scenario 2: Now I also have an android based Galaxy pocket: even after entering all the required proxy setting as mentioned above, I can access websites via browser but cannot access samsung's app store, google's play store, skype, sipdroid etc.,

I know it is nothing to do with the network administration as I am still accessing via my samsung wave but not via android. Please help me in identifying what I am missing. Is there anything like a network profile I need to assign for these applications?

thanks

As the title says, can you sync them between windows 8 and windows phone 8? Or Do both devices need to be windows 8.1? I'm wondering if I should install windows 8 Or 8.1 on my macbook air 2013. I tried 8.1 a while ago and battery life was very poor. But I heard windows 8 is better from someone in mac forum. I'm wondering if I install windows 8 on my mac, and buy a windows phone 8 (upgradeable to 8.1) device (I was planning to anyway), will I be able to sync what I said above in the title? Or again, both devices need to be on 8.1? I can't find much info on google. Keeps showing irrelevant info. :(

Answer:Can you sync browser tab, photos, music, app data, passwords, etc with Windows phone 8 and windows 8

To sync browser stuff, both need to be 8.1. Photos and most other things will sync between any Win 8.x and WP 8.x device.
Having said that, your MacBook battery should be about the same on Windows 8 and 8.1. If you had Google Chrome installed be aware that Chrome on Windows is a serious CPU hog and it has been known to drain batteries quickly even when idle.
I would go with Windows 8.1 on the MacBook regardless of what version of Windows Phone you go with.

In the last few days, I've been experiencing some difficulties when using the Twitter app; though I can see the tweets, I can't see either the profile pictures or the attached ones. This only happens when I'm connected to 3G (it's not my data connection; every single thing works like charm, except from the things related to Twitter).
Also, I always get an error (83CF1105, more exactly) when I try to sync my Twitter account with my phone. I've deleted the account many times but it just hasn't worked.
In addition, I'm not even able to access the web page from IE. From UC Browser, it happens the same as in the app: No pictures at all.
Is there anybody else going through the same situation? I'd really appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance.
PS: I'm from Colombia.

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 want to sync my outlook between two machines. Do any of you guys know how I can go about doing this. All I can find is expensive software which costs atleast 500 quid. It is important that tasks are synced too.

Question: phone sync

Hello


This is my first time with the forum, so please bear with me.

I have had my Blackberry Pearl for over a year. I have never been able to sync up with my laptop. I presumed it was due to Vista. I have since updated my computer and now have Windows 7. I still can't sync. My system does not have Outlook but windows live which is not a selection.

To those who are blessed with computer savvy, please give me the dummies version

Thanks

Welcome to Windows 7 SUpport Forums.
First off what do want your blackberry to sync with in Windows 7?
Since you dont want it to sync mail because you use Windows Live, what else are you looking for it to sync with ?
May I also suggest that you fill out your system specs.

Regards,
Adrian

Answer:How do I get ie 11 to tab sync with phone?

If you have windows phone 8.1 developer preview on your windows phone , just open some tabs on your desktop /Home PC. Check your phone after sometime (2-3 min ? ) and when you tap on tabs , swipe right to see all the open tabs on your desktop PC.

I just bought a Motorola Krave ZN4 phone. I am able to sync it with WMP 11 to transfer mp3's to the SD card on my laptop (XP Home) successfully but not on my desktop (XP Pro). When connected to the DPC via a micro USB cable, it sees the ZN4 and loads the corresponding drivers and says I'm good to go. When I open WMP 11, hit the sync tab and plug the phone in, no device is recognized by the program. Device Manager also doesn't see it at this point and it DID before opening up WMP. Then I get a "Unrecognized USB Device" popup. If I try it again, Windows brings up a "Digital Still Camera" dialogue box. I have tried moving the USB connection to another card on the DPC to no success.

Other USB devices work fine.

Appreciate any suggestions you have.
 

Answer:Phone Can't Sync with WMP 11
