Hello,

I have a client who uses the Notes function in his Outlook (2016)/32bit/Windows 10 Pro extensively. He has two exchange and two IMAP accounts. One of the Exchange accounts is through onmicrosoft.com. We've been using for his contacts/calendaring.

His Android smartphone (LG V20) is uses Outlook for Android.

Is there a way to have his contact notes on his desktop sync to his smartphone?

Much appreciated!

these are outlook's yellow notes or notes in a contact's notes field? The outlook app doesn't sync either but the native app or other 3rd party apps might. Apple's native apps support both - but the last time i checked, android didn't support yellow notes - but that was with an older os. I don't think i ever checked contact notes.

Add the account to the native app and turn off mail sync. For yellow notes, you may need an app.

Thank you for replying, Diane - these are the contact notes in the note field. I'll give that a try. Thank you!
