How to fix a problem Windows account stopping outlook synch with mobileme?

Not open for further replies.


Have been struggling to get my outlook contacts and calendar synched with mobileme. Determined that it works with one windows user profile (a dummy set up to test that the issue is not apple) so my main user account must have some corruption. The main symptom is that after mobileme says a synch is complete, dupes start streaming into my outlook contacts file, hundreds of the same contacts already there. Does anyone know how to sort this out please?

Thanks in advance.


PS Not using Exchange Server.

Use the Duplicate removal tool and try removing the duplicates from Outlook.

As you are aware that it works fine with a (dummy) account and is an issue with the main account, the best option would be to set the dummy account as your main one and move on
