It’s been about 48 hours since I turned my Birthday Calendar back on, but there are still no entries in the Birthday Calendar.
The Birthday Calendar is present in both Outlook.com and Outlook 2016, but is blank.
All the underlying birth date data exists in the People section of Outlook.com...
Could the fact I cannot edit many of the birth dates in Outlook.com be related to this?
As a general point, is it best practice to only make edits of contacts/calendar in Outlook.com, rather than the desktop Outlook 2016 (and just treat Outlook 2016 as a “view” of the info)?
No I cannot update them later.
I have been attempting all edits in Outlook.com, rather than desktop Outlook 2016.
I am assuming your question normal/old contact form etc relates to edits in Outlook 2016?
I did today try to change a birth date in Outlook 2016 and that change was accepted...
Before answering your questions, I now have a bigger Birthday Calendar issue.
In an attempt to fix this issue, I went into the Outlook.com calendar and selected Options > Birthday Calendar and selected Turn Off The Birthday Calendar and Saved this.
I then selected Turn On The Birthday Calendar...
Many birthday dates show up 1 day late on my iPhone 8 (iOS11) default contacts list, although they show up correctly on the iPhone calendar.
For example a birthday correctly entered in Outlook.com for March 8 1995 would display in iPhone contacts as March 9 1995, but would appear correctly on...
When I try to edit contact details, I go to save my changes I get the message "The contact cannot be updated right now. Please try again later."
This does not happen on all my contacts but many of them.
The issue has persisted for weeks/months.
Any idea how to fix it?
I had an Outlook.com account set up as an Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) account in Outlook 2013.
This afternoon I decided to set up 2-step verification on my Outlook.com account.
As directed I generated an App password to use in Outlook 2013, and entered this into the Password box in Outlook...
Thanks Diane. Your patience is much appreciated.
I have reduced to 2 the number of EAS accounts I am running in Outlook 2013. I also removed and re-added the main account that had all the duplicates. Testing was a mixture of some delays and some instant arrivals.
However, a new problem has...
Thanks, Diane. My Outlook 2013 setup post this initial testing will be:
1) Default/Main Outlook.com Account (setup as EAS and IMAP to provide mirror for Drafts, etc)
2) Secondary Outlook.com Account to be used for online purchases/admin (setup as EAS and IMAP to provide mirror for Drafts...
I remembered I had another test Outlook.com account set up as EAS in Outlook 2013. I removed and re-added it to see if this fixed the issue.
Unfortunately it did not solve the delayed delivery of email issue. The delays vary. Yesterday afternoon they were 6-15 minutes. This morning...
Hearing direct from the product team would be fantastic and at least resolve whether this issue may eventually be fixed (or indeed whether they are aware of this particular issue).
I was planning on using one Outlook.com account for email, contacts and calendar for...
Thanks for all your help in setting up my Outlook.com in Outlook 2013 using EAS. Calendar and Contacts seems to sync fine between the two.
I’m left with one major problem in that some emails arrive immediately but many others are delayed by 10, 15, 25 minutes etc (at random). This...
The Drafts messages I imported to the IMAP profile are all Read Only for some reason.
I saw a post from you about editing attachments which suggested adding “Edit Message” to the Quick Access Toolbar. This seems to enable me to now edit the body of the message. However, it does not...
You mentioned the "EAS account seems buggy at times".
By that are you suggesting I would be better off using the IMAP account (using Outlook.com email) on a day-to-day basis in Outlook 2013?
At the moment I have set up the Outlook.com account as an EAS account and am using...
Diane. I understand that with an Outlook.com account setup in Outlook 2013 using EAS the Drafts folders will not sync (it shows as “This Computer Only”).
I use Drafts a lot and I was wondering is the following is a workaround.
1) In addition to setting up firstname.lastname@example.org as EAS in...
Oh – I didn’t think of that given my previous problems of trying to import a PST file into the EAS Outlook 2013 Outlook.com account.
Just to be clear is the way the backup of the PST file would work (and its re-import if required through loss of data) the following:
I have just started using Outlook.com with Outlook 2013 for the first time, having switched from using a POP account in Outlook 2002 and 2003.
I apologize if this question has been asked previously, but is there a way to:
1) Backup the emails in Outlook.com/Outlook 2013...
I am still testing this so am not 100% sure it is working perfectly, but I think importing my files into Outlook 2003 and then using the Outlook Connector to sync to Outlook.com appears to have gotten around the issue of all the attachment signs appearing on my imported...
