Am I going mad or is sync between Outlook.com and Outlook 2016 useless?

4

I recently returned to Outlook.com after using Gmail for many years.

Cleaned up inbox, swept aside the rubbish and ran some rules. Cool story.

Outlook.com account syncs beautifully on my Android device, contacts, calendar, tasks you name it.

Would like to sync my account with Outlook 2016 and, uh….wut?

  • Can’t sync contacts
  • Can’t sync rules
  • Can’t sync tasks
  • Haven’t yet figured out how to sync calendar

Please tell me I’m mad and wrong about this

    Its been working fine on my Office 365 for a couple of years. Everything "just worked".

    Try deleting and re-adding the account.

    You're mad and wrong about this.


    I suggest taking the suggestion from wright_is. The sync isn't super fast, but it DOES happen.

    If you use 2FA, then you have to generate an app password for exchange. After I did that, I had no problem.

    Check it's syncing as exchange and not as an Imap client
