I am using Outlook 2010 32 bit on Win 7 64 bit.

I currently have 2 exchange accounts connected to outlook. one (the primary) is my user account on the domain, and the second is another. I use the calendar and contacts from this second account. Today I added the holidays (from the options), and found that they did not show up. Baffled, I looked around, and found that they were added to the other calendar (the username primary).

I understand that I probably can simply 'copy/paste' them to the new account, this does not really solve the longer term problem. Is there a way to make that calendar be my default? I would ask the similare question for contacts, etc as well, since I am assuming that there may be similar interests and procedures.

Thanks!

Assuming the second is a secondary account, added in More Setting. No, you can't make them default for new items. You can use a macro to make the folder the default when you open the navigation pane and use a macro to copy appt (or contacts) to it.

In addition, Contacts can be set as the default address book when you click To.

If you want to start outlook in either calendar or contacts, you should be able to select the folder as the start up folder.

If the second account was added as a second exchange account (the new outlook 2010 feature) you can set it as default, but it would also change the default email address. There are macros you can use to work around this problem... You can try this, not sure it will work though: set the second account's data file as the default data file, leaving the main account set as the default email account. It works fine for other account types, not sure how it works with Exchange.
