Hey all, I need your help. I am with a customer right now trying to sync his contacts, calendar and email from outlook. I can't for the life of me get it.
Can someone please call me and help me through the process? As soon as you can, I'll post when i've got it.
PLEASE don't abuse this information, but I really want to get this taken care of for my customer.

Is iTunes installed on the computer with Outlook he is trying to sync to? Or are you trying to "sync" over the air (via EDGE or Wi-Fi)?

I had the same problem. You need to switch from outlook to one of the other options for syncing--> Sync --> then sync back to Outlook--> Sync again and that fixed the problem for me. Hope this helps! Let me know.:laugh2:

Hello, I'm a Mac. And I'm a PC.

(he's on a PC. you're on a mac.)

I think you may need to enable Safari to sync to .mac first, but I'm not certain on the bookmark thing. See Safari prefs. iTunes should be able to sync your address book.

yes...I saw he was pc. I have tried everything but iTunes wont touch the contacts or bookmarks. I even signed up and synced a yahoo account to the mac mail and tried selecting yahoo...nothing. I really don't want to add 150 contacts info manually. I must be missing something. The music and video sync perfectly.

Well, since you're talking about something not related to PC Outlook, perhaps it would be best for you to start a new thread. Most Mac guys go out of their way to avoid Outlook. ;) You might get better answers with a dedicated thread.
