- Outlook.com (as MS Exchange)
- I am using Outlook 2013 (32-bit) on Windows 8.1.
- I have an Outlook.com account (for mail, contacts and calendar), all of which are synchronized via the Exchange ActiveSync protocol.
- My Outlook.com calendar is set as the default calendar in Outlook 2013.
- My Outlook.com data file is set as the default data file in Outlook 2013.
- When I add a single appointment to my calendar in Outlook 2013, it usually at once and correctly with the online calendar on the Outlook.com website.
- When I add multiple appointments to my calendar in Outlook 2013, and I leave enough time between adding them to the calendar, they usually synchronize at once and correctly with the online calendar on the Outlook.com website.
- However, when I add multiple appointments to the calendar, in quite rapid succession (i.e. with only some seconds between adding each appointment, for example when adding appointments with a number of my customers for the next day), it often happens that only the first few appointments I added in Outlook 2013 are synchronized correctly to the Outlook.com calendar, but not the remaining ones. These latter ones are indeed added to the Outlook 2013 calendar, but they are NOT synchronized to the Calendar on the Outlook.com website.
- Is this normal behavior?
- I am suspecting that there is some sort of synchronization issue between Outlook 2013 and Outlook.com via EAS protocol.
- Could it be that the Outlook.com calendar servers cannot handle synchronizing multiple appointments in rapid succession?
- Could it be that the EAS protocol cannot handle synchronizing multiple appointments in rapid succession?
- Could it be that this is some sort of "spam protection" control on the Outlook.com servers: e.g. the connection between the Outlook 2013 client software and the Outlook.com calendar server is cut off when the number of added items during a certain time frame exceeds a certain limit)? I know that there are spam protection limits for mail messages on Outlook.com: one cannot send more than a certain number of messages during a certain time; if one does: sending of mails is halted for a while, messages remain in the Outbox until the "delay period" is over.
