I use the iCloud facility in 1.6, to sync a shared icloud calendar with outlook on a desktop/laptop. This allows my wife and I to have a shared calendar.accessibleon the iPad's and the Windows machines we use. 


The fantastic feature of 1.6 allowed me to just sync Calendar's/Tasks and not email.
This allowed me to sync our Shared calendar to my WORK OUTLOOK and also to my Home Laptop.


Since 2.0 Apple have merged the settings so now you have no choice but to sync email too. I cannot sync my home email and my work email to iCloud. Nor do I need to.


Does anyone know if there is an intent to split these features back out.  2.1.1 doesnt seem to do this.

    Since they're on 2.1.1 I doubt they would regress to functionality that long ago.. must be for some reason..

    One way to get the desired customization you want could be to go into your Outlook settings and drop the iCloud email account . That should get you running the way you like,
