    Account setup on Android

    Just a final question. The synched calendar data available in Outlook android appears to be unavailable to other apps. Is this correct?

    Account setup on Android

    Thanks for your response. Firstly apologies for the delay but I didn't receive a notification. OK. I understand your point about contacts. My confusion stems from the fact that all other mail apps I have used (and there have been a few) have set up what I think is now called a Corporate or...

    Account setup on Android

    I have a little problem setting up Outlook Android to use my outlook.com account or maybe it's just my lack of understanding. Briefly, Now, when I initially set up Outlook in android it does not create an Exchange or Corporate account when pointed at my outlook.com address. It creates an...

    Outlook.com Contact categories

    Final Update . A short while after, the categories started appearing in the mail navigation pane. So I can now enjoy the 'rich new functionality' on Outlook.com. As Diane implies above it is all very meagre. What I expected and wanted was that categories would flow down to other clients. I did...

    Outlook.com Contact categories

    Update. I have found the registry key. When I update it, it shows the new value for a minute or two and then reverts to the hex value. Both after restarting and rebooting

    Outlook.com Contact categories

    Sorry to have to come back to this subject. Over the last 5 days I have spent about 8 hours trying to set up 'automatically' the MS Exchange account. I finally succeeded a short while ago. I got there by changing aliases from the ones that I had previously set up. Everything seems to be ok...

    Outlook.com Contact categories

    I am not sure the categories will help, I'm afraid. The client list is what I want to use (infact what I used to use) but for the contacts I have not reapplied them, other than a test group, since I lost them a few years ago. The contacts categories on the server are from an attempt a couple of...

    Outlook.com Contact categories

    Thank you Diane. I had forgotten your instructions to recreate the accounts! So I did recreate them but still no joy. Some changed data eg name is reflected on .com but absolutely no category information. I take your point about it not being maintainable on .com. I remain bemused. Yesterday on...

    Outlook.com Contact categories

    I was migrated about a month ago. The feature I was most looking forward to was contact categories. Having had a chance to dig around I find that categories in the outlook client are still not updated in Outlook.com. And further the edit screen on outlook.com shows no edit field for group, list...

    Struggling with aliases

    I am using Office 365 Home and Win10. I have been happily using aliases for years but in the fallout from a difficult Win 10 project I have got into a bit of a muddle. I have a primary account (imap) A and two alias accounts Y & Z both of which are set to logon to A. Initially I set up Y & Z...

    Outlook.com backups.......or not

    Diane, thank you again. I did move to Office 365 but I will take regular backups for a while yet! I quickly 'bumped into' - the unable to change eas folders problem the no categories in eas contacts problem the no contact groups problem My first response was that eas is a crock of worms and has...

    Outlook.com backups.......or not

    Diane, many thanks for your response. As I recall most of any manipulation was done in Outlook but it was 6 months ago and my archive was entirely stable until mid November. You seem to be saying that Office 365 is a much stronger/more reliable platform which is a relief. Would you advise a...

    Outlook.com backups.......or not

    I saw an old thread recently where Diane Poremski suggested that it wasn't necessary to keep backups of outlook.com items. I recently lost more than 1000 items from outlook.com -though I did have them on my own backup! I tried to discuss this with both MS Support and MS Community but neither...
