    Speaking for myself, I don't want my personal contacts and calendar living in the cloud. I want to keep this information confidential and private. There certainly are things that I share on the cloud, by my contacts and calendar won't ever be shared.


    Someday, accounts on the cloud might get hacked, It certainly has happened before.


    Everything used to work before Mavericks came along, and there was no prior notice that Apple was disabling sync services, as far as I'm aware. 


    I hold Apple responsible to fix this.

    and there was no prior notice that Apple was disabling sync services, as far as I'm aware.

    Except this: SyncServices.html



    Deprecation is a status applied to a computer software feature, characteristic, or practice indicating it should be avoided, typically because it is being superseded. The term is also sometimes used for a feature, design, or practice that is permitted but no longer recommended in other areas, such as hardware design or compliance to building codes.


    All the developers that depended on this, including Microsoft, were well aware that it was changing. It was up to them to adapt their software for the impending change.

    Your iphone will synch with an exchange server. Get your IT admin to give you the server address and credentials.


    Then sync it to icloud ( i have not tried doing both, but why not?)


    Tht should do it



    That will NOT work, please try it for yourself before suggesting it.

  • Grant Lenahan Level 4 (1,260 points)

    I'm not deluging my calendar with my professional appointments and confidential data just to experiment. Its a suggestions worth making. What part of it won't work?  You CAN synch to exchange. You CAN synch callendar to icloud.  Will it not sync the exchane appointments backwards?


    Why are you discouraging people from trying to help?



  • Csound1 Level 8 (46,965 points)

    Because you can not sync Exchange and iCloud, if you are claiming that you can please detail your method, screenshots would be nice.


    Until then your suggestion is wrong.


    FYI, testing your suggestions to see if they work is a part of the TOU for this site, please read them.

  • Grant Lenahan Level 4 (1,260 points)

    read again.


    1. sync iphone to exchange

    2. sync iphone to icloud


    this should populate icloud


    I am not testing it.



  • Csound1 Level 8 (46,965 points)

    I have tested it and it does not work, they are seperate accounts and will not sync. Shame on you for refusing to test your answers.

    Things are getting a bit testy (I apologize for the pun).  As I use Google as my mail client, and despite being disappointed that I can no longer use my expensive Outlook client, I have come to the fact that I need a different client.  I am using Mail native to Maverick now, and it is doing the job, but has some limitations and bugs.  I have started a new thread to open a discussion on alternative 3rd party mail clients, hopefully with some specific opinions towards how they work with Google.  There are lots of reviews, but hopefully some real life experiences will be discussed.


    Good luck to those who have to use Outlook on their Apple product.

    It's a desolate picture! I signed up for a single 'cloud' Exchange account, which allows at least calendar, notes and contact sync between PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad. But the other issue is the horrible inconsistency of Outlook 2011 which has some great features but also has an array of bugs such as erratic format changes, mails 'stuck' in the outbox, absent options such as delayed send, format copy in mails etc.

    I haven't even tried Mail on the back of consistent criticism for its minimalist approach.

    Are there really any serious contenders to Outlook?

  • pedrocerveza Level 1 (0 points)


    Thank you very much for posting this. Infinatly more helpful than either of the folks at Apple of Microsoft.

    It's working fine for me.

    Thanx Again,


  • billybaroo617 Level 1 (0 points)

    Saying that Outlook for Mac has never synced with anything except Exchange isn't entirely true. It used to sync with gmail. Here's how: il/


    So frustrating that one of the world's most popular e-mail clients and one of the world's most popular cloud platforms can't just get along.

  • Csound1 Level 8 (46,965 points)

    This is relevant how?

  • billybaroo617 Level 1 (0 points)

    With the advent of Mavericks, it isn't.


    Only relvant in that you are a know-it-all.

    Well, now that is the new update for Maverick with sync by USB again.


    I updated it and now my contacts and calendar are on my Mac. Even that, Outlook is not syncing with my Mac contacts... On Mountain Lion just push sync button on Outlook and starts syncing!


    Any one can help me?
