iPhone deleted my entire Outlook calendar

Q: iPhone deleted my entire Outlook calendar

I synced my iPhone with my Outlook for the first time and all my calendar events (all are work-related) have been deleted from my computer! The ones from the past that I accepted from my iPhone's outlook are still on the phone. I can't figure out how to sync the iPhone to the Outlook. I do not have Google Calendar.

I have tried Edit -> Preferences -> Devices -> Reset Sync History, but I think that only applies to resetting the device info, not the computer.

My iTunes settings are such that devices do not automatically sync. In iTunes under my iPhone and Info, I have it to sync Outlook -> All Calendars (as there is only one on this comp).

Please help! I need all my calendars to be available at all times.

Thank you!!

The Basics
Using Windows 10 Calendar (Outlook) as my primary calendar. The calendar contains two accounts, my Microsoft Live Account and my Gmail Account. In the left panel, I have the Gmail Calendar checked ? the Outlook calendar is unchecked. When I add an event, the default dropdown is my Gmail calendar which is what I want as my default.
My Problem
Events that I add to my calendar show up in both my Outlook calendar and my Gmail calendar as expected ? or maybe not quite as expected. I?ve just discovered that if I add an event several months in the future, it momentarily appears on my Outlook calendar and then is deleted (I see a brief deleted message appear). If I then go directly to my Gmail calendar, the event I just added shows up as expected. As of today (March 24), the cutoff date when the Windows/Outlook calendar automatic deletes begin to occur is September 7 (or 167 days from now). I haven?t yet experimented to see if the cutoff date moves forward every day.
Very strange. Anybody know what?s going on. If you have a similar calendar setup as mine, give it a try and see if your experience is the same. By the way, my Windows 10 system is fully updated.

If I have calendar items already on my iPhone, and I decide I want to start syncing with Outlook, is it safe for me to just enable the calendar sync, or do I risk overwriting the iPhone data instead of the Outlook data?

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone knows the answer to this question.

I sent myself some new calendar appointments/requests from Outlook at my office to my iPhone (via my hotmail).

For some reason, the invitations that appear on the iPhone are an hour out. E.g. I send a meeting for 0930 and the iPhone enters it as 1030 in the invitations/calendar. I presume it has something to do with the time zones, but these appear to be the same.

It's a problem at the iPhone end, because if I view the invite on my hotmail on a PC, the times are correct.

Anyone had this problem?

I use Outlook as my primary calendar app at home, and either GMail or my iPhone calendar when I am away. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get these three services to talk to each other.
Does anyone know of any programs or services I can use to keep my calendar synchronized? I wouldn't mind dropping GMail from the loop entirely and just having Outlook <-> iPhone synching to each other. Or if anyone has any suggestions for other super awesome calendar apps I'd consider that - but I admit I am pretty fond of Outlook at the moment.
Thanks for your help.

A:Calendar Apps: Syncing Outlook -> GMail & iPhone (or alternatives)

Are you using a personal email account with Outlook, or a company account? If you're using a company account, you can set up your email on your iPhone using the Exchange account setup wizard, and that will sync over your calendar to your phone.
If you're using a personal email account, it's probably either POP or IMAP. Outlook calendar and contacts can be synced to your iPhone, but you'll have to use a manual sync with the phone connected to the computer:
You can also sync Outlook to Gmail, but you'll again need to hool up the phone to the computer and download Google's calendar sync program to your desktop:
Hope this helps.

Hi everyone!

What is the best way to sync my emails, contacts, and calendar with my Outlook 2010 (win7 pc), iPhone, and iPad2?

Basically, I want to send/receive emails to all devices, and update my calendar and contacts on my Outlook, and then have my iOS devices update automatically be synced with my Outlook contacts and calendar, and vice versa.

I've used Microsoft Exchange in the past to do this, but it seems like over kill... and it's a little overcomplicated for me. I was hoping I could just do all this with Gmail, but it seems that I need MS Exchange to do it that way too.

Any help and advice is very appreciated!!!
I'll be on the forum all day, so let me know if I need to clarify what I'm asking.

Sync Window Live Mail client & Ipad/iphone calendar

I have been asked to setup a calendar synchronisation between a Windows Livemail client, and iphone and ipad

They are already using WLM client on PC connected to thier own domain for email, which has NO calendar sync possible , so i cannot change the client software

So i decided the easiest thing was to create a live mail account ( and use that to sync all the calendars account (set up specially for this sync) and synced from the windows live mail client to the calendar and that all worked very well
WLM Client to ipad and iphone all worked

i do however have an issue

I setup the ipad and iphone using the hotmail option - I possibly should have chosen the exchange option

The issue an event created on the ipad or iphone calendar event is not synced back to the / WLM calendar ,but they do sync with each other all OK

WLM ==> === > ipad ==> iphone
all work that way

ipad ==> iphone OR iphone ==> ipad
all work ok

iphone/ipad created event == Does NOT update ==> wlm/

if i setup an event in the WLM calendar, which syncs to all devices, I can then delete the event via the ipad or iphone - it is deleted from the WLM/ calendars - so the ipad/iphone is talking back to the calendar for a delete action.

so what does not work is just that

i have solved the issue , and a really silly issue

so i changed the new account to a Exchange account setting , and also notice i need to enter the info incorrectly first to then get prompted to enter the information

set the account up for just calendar
Set the calendar as default

and al works

just means she will only have 1 calendar , if she wants to sync between all devices

I use outlook 2003 with Win XP. I have an extensive calendar set up with hundreds of appointments. A few days back it was misbehaving. I wanted to delete an appointment, and somehow ended up deleting the entire calendar. All that I did was click "delete" in the pull down menu under edit. The calendar disappeared completely.

Now when I left click on Calendar, nothing opens. If I was in mail, the display continues to be mail. In the sidebar, the list of calendars presents, but none of them are the main calendar.

Now here's the strange part. The calendar is still functioning and is synchronizing with my smart phone. And, I've discovered by right clicking on calendar, (which presents the option to open in a new window) and opening in a new window, the calendar is visible. It just isn't visible in my normal Outlook session where I toggle between mail, calendar, contacts and tasks.

Here is another strange thing. After I open the calendar in a new window, the sidebar permits me to toggle between mail, address book, tasks, etc. However as soon as I do that, the calendar no longer is visible and I have to reopen it in a new window again.

I already tried going back to a restore point prior to the problem. It didn't make any difference. Is there a solution so that I can restore my calendar view in Outlook 2003.

Generally speaking, you can only sync with 1 iTunes account/computer at a time. You can easily sync calendar over the air via google calendar, or exchange, depending on what your calendar is *in* on the desktop.I'd explore that option.

I've had an Android for almost 2 years, and although I really love it I'm considering getting an iPhone when my contract ends (I have an iPod touch and just really starting liking some of the apps and user experience)

The only issue for me is I'm a heavy Google user: gmail, google calendar, google contacts, etc.

I love how right now I can add a contact or calendar event on my phone, and it immediately syncs to my Google account (or vice-versa syncs to my phone).

I did a bit of research so far on how this would work on an iPhone, and it seems there are apps but that you still need iTunes? Is that true? Or is there an app that will mimic the functionality I get on my Android?

I do plan to jailbreak it, if that helps any.

I currently use Outlook 2010 because I have a paid license but I'm willing to upgrade.

This works Ok with iCloud but what I don't like is that I can't make my icloud calendar the default in Outlook so I don't get reminders on my PC. What I end up doing is manually copying critical appointments from my icloud calendar to my Outlook default calendar if I want to be sure to get a reminder on my PC!. This isn't ideal though. Does anyone have a better solution? I read that the latest Outlook 2016 doesn't sync at all so I can't upgrade Office. I wish MS and Apple would decide to work together instead of trying to defeat each other!!

I believe icloud will sync with windows 10 mail and calendar apps - is that true?

I've also heard of emclient being good but haven't tried it.

I'm trying to help a friend who has just installed Office 2016 on her computer, which was recently upgraded from Win7 to Win10.

She's been using and has accumulated a fair amount of email, contacts and calendar appointments. I've managed to get her email to show up by adding it to Outlook 2016 as a POP3 account. I was able to import her contacts into Outlook 2016 from a file called OutlookContacts.csv. Now I'm trying to get her calendar with all its many calendars and appointments into Outlook 2016.

I'm not sure why but the appointments all show up just fine in Mail and Calendar for Windows 10, even though we did nothing to put them there (as far as we know). But she'd like them to appear when she clicks on the Calendar in Outlook 2016 and I can't find any information on how to do that. I've also looked for some kind of Export function in the Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 app but I came up empty.

How do I get her calendar into Outlook 2016?

I can't be the only one who finds Microsoft *awful* at documenting this kind of basic functionality. Millions of people must have tried to do the same thing before me but if there's any information out there on how to do this, it has eluded me so far....

A:Export calendar from Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 to Outlook 2016?

You can manually export calendars from using a round-a-bout method I posted at this link. However, I don't think that's going to help you because what you really want to do is set up Outlook 2016 so that her email, calendar and contacts sync with (and stay in sync with) her account.

Therefore, instead of setting email up as a POP account and then importing calendar, contacts, etc. separately, why not just setup Outlook 2016 to work with her account? I haven't done it with Outlook 2016, only older Outlook versions that used Hotmail Connector, however the following instructions for Outlook 2016 seem fairly straight forward.
If she has two-factor authentication switched on for her account, then you may need to generate an app password from her account, and use that as the password instead of the actual Microsoft Account password.

Hello everybody,
my online outlook calendar does not sync with my Windows Calendar app. I am talking about the online calendar which can be accessed after sign-in here: Prihláste sa do svojho konta Microsoft which for me used to always take all the information from my desktop calendar app, and vice-versa, when I entered an event online, it also appeared in my desktop app. This was useful for syncing with my phone and generally accessing my calendar when not having my laptop on me. This is now impossible for me to do.

Now they don't sync and it's quite annoying, I am getting desperate and thinking of using some other app (if you have tips, tell me. I went through this: Resolve sync issues in Mail and Calendar apps in Windows 10 - Office Support it did not solve the problem. I have updates on (I apply them manually). I have Windows 10 all up to date. and all settings allow calendar to be synced. I checked if I am signed in to the same account, I only have one account in the app and the same one online.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I am syncing the iphone 3G through itunes with my Outlook contacts and calendar items without any problem on my PC at home, but it's a completely different story at work with the Dell laptop. When I first got the iphone, it worked fine with the Dell for a couple of days, but when I came to work after the weekend, everything went south.


Once I hook up the phone with itunes, it registers it, but when I hit the sync button, it goes to sync with my contacts, and stays that way for eternity. 10-15 minutes goes by without any changes, and meanwhile, the machine slows to a halt. I can't run any other program in parallel, and it would take 30-40 seconds just switching in between windows. So I would have to manually cancel the sync. Afterwards, the machine remains slow as molasses. I go to Task Manager and would see that the OutlookSyncClient.exe continues to run even though I exited itunes. This is not the case on my home computer. When I exit itunes, that particular process stops as well. If I click over to the performance tab, it would show spike sin CPU usage, and off the chart PF values, like in the GB range. It also is taking up 40-50 MB of memory as well... Read more

I have been using Outlook 2003 for many years then upgraded to 2007, which I've used for years.

Typically I would enter appointments into my calendar in my Outlook 2007 and sync that with my phone....the blueberry or iPhone 3GS....I upgraded to the iPhone4 and have put appointments into my iPhone and synced my iPhone using iTunes (which normally syncs my Outlook calendar as well).

However, I've noticed recently some appt's put into my phone were not showing up on my Outlook Calendar....more snooping and I've just tonight discovered I have another calendar named iSync-Calendar.ics! Well, that's where many of my missing appointments were found!!

So I look closer at my iPhone4 and go to settings>calendar> and look for my default calendar which is iSync-Calendar.ics!!!

I am assuming that somehow that got switched, but used to be "calendar" which was outlook.

I am hoping this doesn't happen in the future..but for now I'm displaying both Calendar and iSync-Calendar.ics on Outlook so I can see all my appointments!!

Glad I caught that tonight as I have double and tripled booked some time slots in the future not seeing them on my iPhone since default calendar was iSynch and NOT calendar and vice versa!!!

Do you think I corrected the problem? Can I sync the iSync appts into or import them into my Calendar??

I am not entirely sure what has happened, however, i have the same kind of problem as Xeron(Gary) with one slight difference, my entire C:\windows folder was shoved into the recycle bin by a virus and deleted, i only just realized this cause i didnt think it was THE C:\windows folder, because of two things A; the recycle bin showed up empty when clicked(icon showed full but nothing came up, as if it was a hidden folder or so, and yes it was stil empty even when i enabled 'show hidden foders') and B: there was a kind-of repacement windows folder still there, i was running a few programs (ESET nod32 antivirus, among others) and ran ccleaner without thinking about the repurcussions of it ><, after cleaning all my old files i went to clean the registry....well, you can pretty much imagine my surprise as EVERY SINGLE THING that was inside the WINDOWS foder was popping up left and right(metaphorically of course) so, now i've opted tp try and use file recover(i havent turned off the pc yet, its a laptop ><)but i just dont know if it can bring back a file that was 'super hidden' as i call it(i ran into a virus like this before, it came in a recycler folder and mass saved itself eating away at the registry etc, had to format my comp and now my desktop doesnt work, damn ibm/intel chipset family ><)

Help Please... Combofix has deleted/quarantined the entire user profile folder contents inc desktop & my docs data.
Yesterday (4th Feb 2015 @ approx 17:00hrs GMT) we ran combofix on a suspected infected computer. It had AVG cloudcare, we disabled the realtime scanner until restart. We then downloaded combofix direct from bleepingcomputer.
Combofix run, did its normal stuff, then we noticed it was DELETING what we have found to be EVERYTHING in the users c:\users\%username%\ folder to the point when the computer rebooted, it re-created the appdata folders, etc, etc like a new user was logging into a new PC.
There is a URL that might help here, but its quite old and it was for WinXP. Does anyone know if the same can be run for Win7? And more importantly has anyone had this same experience recently!!!???
It might just be that this computer is heavily infected and all the profile files are genuinely infected with something. I am fully aware that bleepingcomputer recommend backing up before running this, but I've used this 50-100 times at least, and never ever had this happen.

So, this is about the integration between the two, of course. I have added the WL feed to OC and it appears there. Every task appears as an "all day" event. Then I uncheck the "all day" box, enter the respective time and make my schedule. And then, I guess at the next refresh from the WL feed, all events are back to "all day" :( Does anybody know how to deal with this? Or any reasonable way to put WL tasks into a(ny) calendar without having to jump through hoops? Thanks in advance!

I've had a persistent problem for several months since I migrated to a new hard drive. Outlook 2010 calendar is working, but only in Active List view. Any attempt to change to Preview or Calendar view produces the error message, "Could not read the calendar." Changing from Active List to List works some of the time, but inconsistently and sometimes it will hunt for the list and offer the same "Could not read the calendar." error message. This is very frustrating as I find it difficult to manage the list view and am accustomed to seeing the calendar week view.

I use an Android phone and use gmail and Google calendar to see mail and appointments on my phone. So, I've got Google Calendar Sync running. Google Calendar Sync appears to be operating normally. I have a nice calendar view on my phone or web-based from my computer. I have tried adding the Google calendar to Outlook but it is a duplicate of the default calendar and I can't set it as the default. Also, MS Office does not permit me to delete the default calendar.

I don't like any of the work arounds. I just want the calendar to work like it should. Research discloses no real hint of anything that works including running scanpst. Scanpst does a great job at fixing the problem by wiping the whole calendar thanks very much MS.

I recently created a Microsoft account on my Windows 8.1-running Dell XPS 12 laptop. After I realized that logging in through my new Microsoft account got rid of my calendar, I tried to revert to a local account. I believe I may have accidentally created a new local account with the same name and password as the original account by accident.

Is there anywhere where the calendar information from the original local account would have been saved? It seems to me that since I was not prompted in the process of making a Microsoft account to warn me of losing data from the local account, it should be backed up somewhere. Where could I find it?

Thanks in advance!

I have a user that is attempting to book a meeting on a calendar located inside of a public folder with herself as the only participant. She does this by going to the calendar, creating the meeting directly on it, and adding herself as a participant. The reply from calendar goes straight to her deleted items and does not show up on her personal calendar. The replay says that since she is the organizer no response is needed. Moving the reply into her inbox does not help since there is no button to add the meeting to her calendar. She can successfully book meetings this way on other users calendar. Using another account I am able to book meetings on this calendar without any problem. There are no rules or junk email protection turned on. I have turned calendar auto replay on and off, rebuilt the Outlook profile, turned caching on and off, installed all updates for Outlook 2010, gave her owner access to the calendar, and tried creating the meetings both by viewing the calendar through public folders and through shared calendars.

I know Public Folder's can be buggy but I can't figure out why only one user is having this issue. Anyone have any ideas?

Calendar(s) are made, and invites sent for specific calendars to specific groups of users.
IE: Regional Sales Mgr. creates several supplemental "events" calenders he wants to share with his different teams.
---Default, Corporate, Dist1, Dist2, Dist3, Region
---DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3
---Dist1 calender --> DistGrp1
---Dist2 calendar --> DistGrp2
---Dist3 calendar --> DistGrp3
---Region --> DistGrp1, DistGrp2, DistGrp3

All OL03 users get an email with a link to Microsoft explaining how to open shared calendars. Off07 users get the icon to click and open specified calendar.

OL03 user then follows MS instructions, and pulls up the Off07 user's default calendar, with no option to open or even locate any other calender.

Is there something lacking here? Anyone have any work-a-rounds for OL03 users to open a shared calendar (other than the default or main calendar) of an OFF07 user?

Ok so I love calendar apps on any platform (desktop, phone, internet, hand) because they are so much better at remembering than me. So I got this great thing setup where I have Google Calender as the central manager/hub for everything. I have MS Outlook on my desktop and laptop each setup to sync with G.C. and also have my iPhone setup to sync with it. Now this might sound messy but after setup it's great because whenever I add stuff from anywhere it shows up everywhere. The initial reason for this is because I hate doing long tasks on my phone, much easier to enter appointments and appointment series on the desktop PC, same goes for contacts with a phone, address, and email.

So if I love it so much why am I here?

1.) Reminders don't sync back. I will have something like 6 appointments occur and acknowledge them on my phone which helpfully reminds me. Then when I go on my desktop later I am bombarded with reminders that I don't really need. What I would love is if somehow when I acknowledged an appointment in one calender app it would then sync back my acknowledgement to all the other platforms. Thus I would not be bombarded.

2.) Calenders also can tell you WHERE or WHO an appointment is with. So I have this handy lists of contacts on my phone, with stored addresses. From my navigation app I can access these contacts and get directions to them. So here's an idea... I get an alert that I have an appointment "Fix Computer" at "Doug's" ... Read more

I already tried following the exact filepath (rather than the shortcut path...desktop) to open the folder to get the correct document, but the folder doesn't ever open, it just attaches to the email.

You cannot attach a folder to OE.

When you click on a shortcut, that is a file - therefore that file attaches (it may appear that is a folder to you but it isn't).

If you have extensions showing you would see that is a .LNK file.

Microsoft Outlook is an e-mail client application that runs on your computer. It doesn't run on an iPhone or other mobile device. If you're trying to configure the iPhone to check your e-mail account, what isn't working? Do you use an IMAP or POP account? Or is it an Exchange account?

I used to be able to sync my iphone to Outlook, but it stopped doing it (years ago actually). I got by without it but need to do it now.
I've looked on Google and have checked various solutions (location of .pst file, removed everything except iTunes Outlook Addin in the Trust Centre) and nothing worked.
I'm running windows 7 and iOS 6.1.2

A:Syncing Iphone with outlook 2010?

Win7 RC + Office 2010 + iPhone 3Gs = FUBAR. I too get same error message(s), also get 'sync in progress' ad infinitum.

SOLUTION!! Virtual PC! I admit its the king of kludge solutions, but I did the following:
- Install older version of Microsoft OFFICE on Virtual PC
- install 'integration features'
- copy PST file from share to C drive on Virtual PC
- copy pictures etc to C Drive on virtual PC
- install iTunes on Virtual PC
- enable integraton features on Virtual PC
- click the "USB" dropdown on the Upper Left of Virtual PC and dedicate the iPhone to Virtual PC, and iPhone will now sync.

I have an issue with the shared contacts in Outlook 2007 through Exchange.
We are 5 people at the office who need to access this list via our Iphones as well as through Outlook. Outlook is not the problem, everyone has this list there. It seemes though like Im the only one to access this list at Groups on my Iphone.

Everyone is has been set as Owner in Permission.

Doesnt Iphone support this?
Is there any other way to make this happen?

Thanks in advance!

I have a user who has received an e-mail on their iPhone but it does not appear in their Outlook client. The iPhone is connected to the Exchange 2007 mailbox via active sync and the user does have the Outlook client periodically running from two locations (desktop - always, laptop - periodcally).

I have seen the message in the tracking logs on Exchange.

Is there something else I should be looking at to troubleshoot the cause for this issue (i.e. message rules, iPhone settings, exchange settings, etc.)?


A:random e-mails appear on iPhone but not in Outlook client

Not my area of knowledge, but I can think of two possibilities.

First, but not likely, the iPhone is deleting the message from the server after download.

Second, the Outlook clients may be filtering the message as spam or junk and deleting it or shuttling it to a folder other than Inbox.

Hi everyone, I have a friend who need some help:

Hello TTran,

Sorry to bother you with a private message but I could not find how to start a thread on the forum asking for help on one particular problem.
If you could spare some time here is my question:
- I run Windows 7 Ultimate and Outlook 2007.
- I enter my hotmail address into Outlook Connector, so Hotmail is my default message handler in Outlook. Every thing runs normally until I discover that I cannot sync my Contacts with my iPhone, either with iTunes or with MobileMe, although the "Contacts" folder in Outlook contains 300+ names.
After some investigation I found some explanation:
- The Contacts displayed in the Contacts folder of Outlook are from my hotmail address book (contacts in [email protected]), and the Outlook contact book is empty!!! No wonder that the result of the sync is nil, because the only option in the sync procedure is to sync Contacts with Outlook.
In order to sync my contacts with my iPhone I think that I need to Move/Copy all the contacts from (contacts in [email protected]) to the Outlook Address book.
I don't know if it is possible or not.
Could you tell me and post this message on the forum for discussion?

Thanks a lot

A:problem with sync Contact from Outlook to Iphone

Outlook must be the default mail provider in order for the Outlook Addin to synch with Iphone,
Iphone does not recognise a proxy mail server such as hotmail.
When Itunes is opened and the Iphone is connected and synch is initiated, Itunes Outlook Addin initiates the call to synch the phone contacts/mail and calender events through the default Outlook program.

When syncing Outlook 07 contacts with 3G iPhone, the emails don't always sync.
I think what is happening is -
If the Outlook email Display As field is 'NAME([email protected])' iPhone will list NAME.
If the Outlook Display As is "[email protected]", then the email will display correctly in iPhone. there a way to globally change the email Display As to show only [email protected] in Outlook?

I've searched for over a half hour now and can't seem to find a clear answer. I want to view the entire contents of an email (smtp headers, message, source, all that happy stuff)....

I tried to add a registry key, but it didn't work....even after I re-started Outlook7. The only option within an email is to view source, and that only appears to be showing html code.

All I want to see is if the anti-virus we have installed is scanning our incoming emails or not!

Anyone know a quick solution to this? Thanks!

A:Solved: How do I view entire message contents in Outlook 7 (smtp, source, etc)

Right click the message, select "Message Options". The "Internet Headers" box at the bottom shows you the whole thing.

I have an iPhone and began using it when I had Outlook 2007 running under XP. Everything worked fine. I got a new laptop with Vista 64-bit. Now when I sync my iPhone everything still works just fine .. except for contacts where I have associated an iPhone picture with them. The contact (including the picture) lives in my 'Contacts' in Outlook 2007 but when I go to send a new e-mail message to one of those contacts they do not show up - any clues how to resolve? This didn't happen before. Thanks!!

Somewhere in the update/install process of Windows 10 (and re-installing Outlook 2007), I lost my contacts in my Outlook account. The contacts remain in my iCloud account and on my iPhone. Can some please instruct me on how to import all the contacts back in to my desktop Outlook 2007 application?
