Is there a way to use the Outlook Connector to sync my windows live contacts

into the normal data file? I don't want to open my contacts list and see two

lists: "Outlook" and "me@live.ca". I want to be able to use software to sync

contacts between my mobile devices, but they automatically go for the

default outlook data file, and ignore my other contacts in windows live.

I'm using Office 2010 beta

Try making the Live data file the default on the Data Files tab of Account Settings.

Hmm.. doesn't seem to work, thanks anyhow.

Is there a way to properly "sync" data back and forth between windows live?

I'm mainly interested in calendars and contacts. I don't want to have a

connector program that acts like an interface to connect to my live account,

I want it to connect and "download" the info and save it in my normal data

files, and sync back and forth.

No, The connector creates its own data file and only syncs with that. If you

set the live account and its data file as default, its calendar and contacts

will be your default (and you could remove the local pst, if live is your

only account).
