My problem is bizarre and the more I seem to troubleshoot the worse it gets. Since I only just bought my MacBook Pro, Lion was already installed. I had an old MacBook and the transition was seemless until ICloud came along yesterday morning. I signed up of course, as I knew I would eventually be forced to anyway and transitioned from MeMobile. Now I have problems. No sync between my Outlook 2011 and Address Book and ICloud. I have been trying to find a solution and have tried the following:
1. Deleted all the contacts in Address Book and reimported them from Outlook. This worked fine and Address Book synced with ICloud. However, when I made changes in Outlook, they would not sync with Address Book and thus not sync with ICloud. The reverse was also true, i.e. changes and additions in ICloud or Address Book do not sync with Outlook.
2. I shut down my computer and restarted. Then I reset the sync services. The result: All my Outlook Categories and Contacts appeared in Address Book along with all the contacts in ICloud. When I click on all contacts, I get duplicates of course. The interesting thing though is the contacts in "All on My Mac" tab in Address Book do not match those in ICloud and ICloud won't sync between the two. So as a result, the problem above persists. I still do not get any syncing between Outlook and ICloud/Address Book. (This by the way was the case before I deleted everything from Address Book and imported everthing from Outlook......so I am exactly in the same place I was before I started troubleshooting........going in circles at this point in time).
By the way, everything works fine for e-mails. However similar problem with ICal which has also doubled up on all info which was in ICloud and Outlook. I had a memobile account previous so ICloud just imported all that info I assume. Also, everthing works fine between my IPhone and ICloud. This is clearly an Outlook/Address Book Syncing problem.
