Q: Lost Icloud contacts/calendar with Windows 10

After installing Windows 10 I lost my Icloud contacts and calendar ability in Outlook . This is the error message :
The set of folders cannot be opened. The information store cannot be opened.
Icloud is on and also clicked on in Add-ins. Other Icloud functions like Onenote work.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Windows 10 was released today, you'll have to give it a little bit of time to allow software developers to update their programs.

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'd really appreciate any input.

I would like to know how I could get my iCloud calendar on the Calendar metro app. I have already synched it to Outlook and no problem.

I also added my iCloud account on the mail metro app and it seems to work fine, but when I go to calendars, the only one I have is the Windows one.

I have been looking all over the Internet for solutions but none have worked for me so far...

So...I can connect the iCloud account just fine in account settings.  However, it doesn't show up in Calendar or Mail as an account I can view, yet it still shows up as properly connected in Settings.  Suggestions?  A quick google hasn't helped as it just suggested workarounds that result in read-only (not ideal) or things Ive already tried with no luck.

A:iCloud and Windows 10 native Calendar/Mail app

Posting solution here.  If you have 2-step verification enabled on iCloud, you must log into iCloud -> account -> security/password -> generate app specific password and use that for Windows.  It synced immediately after deleting and relinking iCloud account with that new app specific password.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate and MicroSoft Office 10 on my desktop computer, use Outlook for email and contacts, used to use the Outlook calendar till I got an iPhone 5S a few months ago, so now my calendar is the iCloud calendar, viewed in Outlook. The notes section of iCloud calendar entries uses very tiny font that is barely visible. I cannot find a way to change the font in the iCloud calendar in Outlook. There is no "format text" tab in the iCloud calendar to choose font type and size, like there is in the Outlook calendar. I spoke to Apple, who said this is a MicroSoft issue. I don't find anything regarding this when I Google "font size icloud calendar". I realize I can highlight the notes and make them larger with the mouse so I can read them on the desktop, but I would prefer to set my default font as a larger size.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I appreciate any help I can get.

I have switched to Windows 10 for mail and calendars as Outlook was taking too long to load. I have set up my gmail account for mail and all is working fine. However I use iCloud for my calendars and want to see my iCloud calendars in Windows 10.

However I am having problems setting up my iCloud account in Windows 10. I enter the relevant details but the "looking for your settings" process never completes. Could this be because I use the same email address for Gmail and my Apple ID?

I suspect I'm making a basic error but would welcome any suggestions. Thank you.

Hello knowledgeable ones:

Until last week I was using outlook 2003, an older versions of itunes, and an ipod, and was able to back up my outlook contacts and calender through itunes and right to the ipod, no problem.

Now, however, I have had to upgrade everything so they can handshake correctly. This has meant going to Outlook 2007, the latest itunes, an iphone 5, and the icloud. My entire goal is to have the contacts in outlook match the contacts in both the cloud and the phone.

In using the icloud control on both of these, I now have the following: a variety of calenders in my outlook with names like calender in icloud, home in icloud, and my calender, all in lovely pastel shades. The phone has one calendar with only the occasionally dupes on a given date.

The phone, however, is a disaster, with as many as three dupes of the same name. Looking at Outlook, I have a slew of contacts, some dupes, many that I though i had deleted from outlook. Also two categories of contacts, icloud and my contacts, with sub-directories in each. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that the contacts tab under my contacts was completely blank following a sync to the cloud, only to then find the other five versions, which, of course, I would like to have agree with each other. The icloud interface on line shows dupe contacts as well.

I think I agreed to an update of live mail a couple of nights ago. The live mail client looks COMPLETELY different, probably good (who knows), but first thing was that when I typed in a name I use frequently to send messages to (which usually just brings up the address) nothing happened, so I pressed the "to" field, which usually brings up my list of contacts where I can search and found that there are no contacts; then I tried opening contacts (from bottom left pick options) and it simply will not open.

My contacts are still there - I can see them from my hotmail account on the web. How do I get them back into my new, improved version of the mail client!??

Windows than suggested that i update/download WLE [which i accepted]... and i have now lost my NCL Contacts... after the WLE update/download.

the WLE download/update has made the system find & display an old online contact list which is of no relevance to me now.

I have been using windows live mail for years, and today I noticed my contacts have all disappeared. I try to restore to a former date, but it wouldn't let me do that, either. I have Windows 7, had taken the computer in because my windows mail got corrupted and it kept downloading for my mail. I did not want that mail program. The computer tech fixed it for me, but at that point my contacts disappeared. AFter working on it longer, I don't know what he did, but the contacts showed up finally.

That was three days ago, now my contacts are gone again. Any suggestions how to get them back? When I log into my email program, it is titled Windows Live Mail 2012.

Thank you.

Hello Tielfeathers,

With the way they are disappearing like that, you might check to see if you are still signed in to Windows Live Mail with your Microsoft account (Windows Live account) like below.

Usually your contacts are tied to the account you sign in to WLM with.

Hope this helps,

I have been using Windows Live Mail for a while now on my Windows 7 machine. It is the newest version available. I have setup my account to be a pop account to access my ISP's e-mail. There were lots of contacts listed in there.

For some reason today I noticed a button that says "Sign In". I clicked on it and it asked me to sign into messenger. I figured what's the harm. I have never used messenger better and maybe I should start. So I signed in.

All of a sudden all my contacts went blank in WLM. No big deal. I closed the program and re-opened it and still no contacts. It seems like it got the conacts from Messenger which I have never used before (so there were none) and replaced all the current contacts.

Is there any way to get my old contacts back. It would save me a lot of time instead of having to type them in. I don't even know why it deleted them. I would have been happy if it synced them up with Windows Messenger so I could have a backup online but it just deleted them.

WLM can be very confusing when it comes to contacts. There are two ways to use WLM (1)"signed-in" and (2)"not signed-in". Each has its own contact list. You may have been signing in automatically all the time using the same LiveID that you used when you originally downloaded WLM. (You couldn't download WLM in the first place without a LiveID.) If you again sign in with the LiveID with which you were previously signing in automatically you will again see that "signed-in" contact list.

If OTOH you really were optioned to "never sign in" (Options/Connections Tab) then you were always using the "Not signed-in" contact list. You will see that list again if you do not sign in. I'm not sure which is the case.

A:windows live mail update lost all of my contacts

Programs and Features>Windows Live Essentials; highlight; use the change/uninstall link at the top; in the next window choose "repair". All the installed components of the Essentials package should be repaired, including Mail. This should repair WLM so that it is working properly so you should be able to "sign-in", however if your contact list was created without "signing in" it won't help to sign in. Assuming your "not-signed-in" contact list is still on your computer it may come back when not signed in but if it doesn't you could try to do an "Import" from the contacts pane, but that only works if you have previously made a backup "Export" of your contacts.

I work at home using Windows XP and a remote desktop connection (RDC), specifically Terminal Services. I want to be able to sinc my pda with my Outlook calendar and contacts (don't care about the email) which are located on the remote server. My pda does not support the remote connection, so that is not possible directly. Besides the RDC, we have web Outlook, on which I can get my email, contact, calendar... everything... through the web, without connecting to the server through the RDC. I have set up a pop3 account to download the email to my hard drive, but this is not what I want to do. I keep far too many emails and would just as soon not download them, since all I want downloaded are my calendar and contacts so I can sinc it with my pda. I don't even care that I could not upload from my pda. All I want to do is to get my up-to-date calendar onto my pda, so when I go to meetings I have it with me. It is ok, if I have to enter new calendar items directly through the RDC and not upload from my pda.
The question is...can I download my calendar and contacts through a pop3 account, or otherwise??? Also, is there a way to do that without downloading the emails?

I've got Windows XP, newly installed Office 2007.

Here's the history: I formerly had Outlook 2000, and my .pst went over the 2GB limit, so my Outlook stopped working. Did a patch that truncated the file below 2GB, tried to bring it back into Outlook, but it didn't work.

We installed Outlook 2007, tried to bring back the >2GB .pst, but it appears to be corrupted (we assume--is it?), won't work. When we tried to bring back the truncated file, the first time (we replaced duplicates) it brings back email and over 8000 reminders (some are simply emails, others appeared to be contacts and calendar entries); the second time (we did allow duplicates) I got a few of my tasks back, but not all, and it didn't bring back reminders and does not populate contacts or calendars.

On my friend's Win 8.1 computer, he accesses his email [email protected] using Gmail. He also has a Windows phone and accesses that same Gmail account there.

On the phone it is set to also sync the Contacts and Calendar. But the Contacts and Calendar are not syncing. He claims that it used to work, and that seems to be true since there are a lot of contacts listed on the phone.

I've done some research and found that Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync is used for this syncing. I've also found that there is inconsistent info about whether or not GMail still supports EAS. Some sources on the web say Gmail does not support it any longer, some say they only still support it if you have Google Apps for Business. But my friend does have Google Apps for Business, I confirmed that by checking in his Gmail account, I can see the history of the billing, he has had it for almost two years.

I'm currently using WLM as my email client with my ISP's email account and not signing in to my MSN account.

I can import contacts and the like but their birthdays don't appear in the Calendar unless I sign into MSN and then only the contacts' birthdays' that I have in MSN appear in the Calendar.

So if I don't want to use my MSN account with WLM then I have to create the Birthday calendar manually...

This is my gripe with WLM, it "encourages" the end user to use a Live mail account or all the features in WLM don't work.

If I'm wrong about this could someone explain how to get non MSN contacts birthdays to appear in WLM calendar.

Trying to recover Outlook contacts and calendar from a HDD that cannot boot. therefore the .pst file cannot be exported. Is there a way to get the .pst and .ost files without actually running the Outlook program? And about a week ago, Outlook froze up; not receiving any new emails, unable to delete the old emails in the Inbox, and unable to clear the Deleted folder. Any ideas?

Sometimes the hard drive is too defective to retrieve any files. Often a "hardware" and/or a "software" method can be used to retrieve some or many files that were not backed up for some reason. The "hardware" way is to install the hard drive into a USB enclosure and connect it to another computer. The "software" way is to boot to a "rescue disk" (CD, DVD or USB flash drive). My choice is Puppy Linux.

Hello. I hope this is the correct forum.
Two questions about syncing an iPhone.
1. My iPhone 5 was at capacity so I deleted songs. I then backed it up to the iCloud. Now my iPhone 6 has larger capacity. How can I sync all songs in my iTunes library to the new iPhone? I assume there is a manual way of doing this and then the songs will sync to the iCloud in due course.
2. I've never known how to sync my calendar and contacts between my Outlook and my iPhone. How do I do this?
I have a PC with Windows 7.

I purchased a Lumia 900 last Spring, and synced with Outlook 2007. At that time I was running Windows 7. I recently upgraded to Windows 8, and my contacts and tasks disappeared, though my calendar was still intact. My contacts still reside on WindowsLive (though I have not been able to find my tasks/reminders). However, when I save the contacts on WindowsLive, and try to import as into Outlook as a .csv (DOS) file, as per the instructions provided, I receive a "Translation Error" message stating that Outlook was unable to initialize a translator to build a field map (I would include a copy of the entire message if I could figure out how to do so in Windows 8).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am going to show a way de share calendar or contacts between two or more users.
I suppose that users have each one his laptop with Microsoft outlook installed.
The steps are:
1) Download "ShareFoders" software from this site:
2) Install on each laptop the "ShareFolders" software.
3) Start Microsoft Outlook.
4) An assistant appear to set up the initials values.(Accept the default values)
4) The "Share Folders" button appear in outlook's bar tool
5) To share for example calendar folder:
- Click in "ShareFolders" button
- Select calendar folder
- Select with who to share
- Click in "Share selected folder" button
6) An invitation window appear in the guest's outlook, if the guest accept the invitation an email of acceptation will be sent to origin

When I click the folder the hand sign comes on and the screen freezes. If I try to open another folder the screen goes white and hangs. I have to start Task manager to shut the session down. Only recent changes are MS updates from the web but can't see any problems there. No error messages appear and all other programs run OK. Other recent change was upgrading virus software to Norton 360. Ops system is Vista Home Premium. Have searched MS website for a fix and this site. Can anyone suggest a fix.

Dear All,

I have been using windows live mail since quite a few time now.
While I logged in to my msn messenger today it asked me to update as there was a new version available.
I did that and alongwith messenger it updated and installed other programs as well.
It updated my WLM and gave it a new look. I NOW HAVE VERSION 2009 (BUILD 14.0.8064.0206)
I was happy to see the inbuilt calender which was not there earlier.
But what it did with my contacts was shoking.
I have 1197 contacts in my Windows Live Mail Contacts.
It is showing all 1197 names but only showing emails of about a 100 contacts. Rest all email addresses are lost, only their names are there.

Please tell me how this problem can be resolved and why did this happen?

I am eagerly awating your reply.




A:Problem on updating Windows Live Mail / LOST EMAIL ADDRESSES OF CONTACTS

Hi All,

This same problem happened to me, plus I have some additional info.

Just like the earlier poster, I am a longtime user of Windows Live Mail. I was prompted to update and did so, and liked a number of improvements.

However, the email addresses of my contacts had been removed, along with all info other than just the contact names. The number of contact names is unchanged, and as far as I can tell, all the same names are there. The few email addresses that do remain (about 20 out of 500) were all used recently, AFTER the first launch of the previous WLM version on this computer, which is new since February. My guess is that these email addresses were automatically added per the preference setting "add email addresses to contacts after third reply."

Here is the added info: when I tried to import my contacts again from a CSV file, it didn't work. A window came up saying that the program was updating my contacts, and it took a REMARKABLY long time, but after it finished, I was left with the same scenario. My CSV file is still good, but WLM will not work with it.

I'm out of ideas. Please help.

Thanks to all in advance.

I have a standard free Yahoo Mail account with several personal folders and also use the Yahoo calendar.

I would like to move from Yahoo to my gmail account for both my emails as well as my calendar. I recently came across this neat CRM type software called Gist, and that doesn't work with Yahoo Mail.

What's the best way of doing this? I'd like to:
1. Copy my personal folders structure in Yahoo Mail to gmail, so that I have exactly the same personal folders in gmail as I did in yahoo
2. Copy the contents of my personal folders in Yahoo Mail to the respective personal folders in gmail.
3. Copy the entries/events in my Yahoo Calendar to Google Calendar
4. Copy contacts from yahoo email to gmail.

Try this if you haven't already done so.

What I did not see was a way to import your calender.

I downloaded and ran AVG PC Tuneup and it cleaned up (by deleting) about 11,000 windows files and other files, as well as 'cleaned' registry keys, etc. Their customer support has been pretty useless and my laptop running win 7 has so many issues that I plan on doing a restore to the original image delivered 2 years ago. Windows backup shows my last backup as Sept 2013 - though I thought it was supposed to back things up weekly.

That being said, in Outlook 2010 (which I have the CD for) I have 3 mail accounts with lots of emails and contacts, as well as Calendar events that I would like to export and then import into a clean version of Outlook. (Note that the contacts may also be part of groups, etc. that I would like to keep intact). I have seen online info about exporting and creating a pst file for emails, but it seems that contacts and the calendar might be separate. I just want three files that will pull back my original folders, the emails in the folders, my calendar, the contacts for those accounts (separated contacts for each email accnt and any groups that they might be in), etc. Is there one function that will do this? Is this just a simple export to a pst or ??? I don't want to lose any data so want to do it right the first time.

Any input as to how I would do this would be greatly appreciated.

I have been scratching my head and searching everywhere, but I seem to have only questions and no answers to this one. I have a business where I keep all my clients in an Access 2013 database. The tables and queries include all contact information, and I also enter dates when I have had appointments with each client along with details of our sessions. Each week (or whenever I get around to it) I must do several things:
update all contact info in Access and export the data to a folder in my Outlook Contacts
enter dates from my Outlook Calendar into the Services table (via a form) and fill in details
export updated Contacts from Access to Excel to upload into my Enewsletter program to email newsletters to clients
make sure my Outlook contact info is syncing correctly with my Samsung Galaxy (I use gsyncit, the best app I've found for this)
refer to my contacts on the phone to get addresses as I am on my way to each client's house or business

Quite a pain, right? If only I could set up a system where any new changes to contact info made EITHER from Outlook OR from Access automatically synchronize AND the address info is included in my Outlook Calendar entry for the person AND a service entry is entered in my Access database for that call, wouldn't my life be easier?!

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'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.

figure that a file is corrupt but it is erasing them from outlook itself.
If anyone knows why this is happening please help.

A:Outlook contacts lost

Are your folders in a REAL Contacts folder? I mean...mail is generally archived, but I've never seen contacts being archived.

Why are you using the address book and not Contacts?

I have WLM Version 2011 (Build 15.4.3555.0308), and it has been working very well until this morning when I opened it up and tried to send an email, when I clicked on the To.. icon I got a message box saying "Unable to choose recipients", I also have a related (I think) problem where when I click on an email in my inbox or any of my storage folders I get a message "A problem occurred while trying to open this message" "A problem has occurred please try again"

I have rebooted and tried again twice, but still have the same problem.

When I hit send and receive I get new emails but also cannot open them.

BTW my Hotmail accounts on the Web are fine.

I would appreciate any advice on how to fix this.

You could also try completely uninstalling and reinstalling it.

Can anyone tell me why in the midst of having OExp open, my contacts pane would flush? pane remains (I know how to turn the pane on/off) hasn't regenerated any new contacts as replys had in the past. This occured while in the midst of cleaning up some persistent trojan activity which has been fixed thanks to help rec'd in the HJT forum. (thanks again Sifu Mike!)

Or am I just stupidly overlooking some checkbox?

I've been trying to sort a problem with Incredimail 2 help. I followed their instructions and now all my contacts have been lost. I tried to import them from Windows Mail but there are none there either.
Can anyone help me find the addresses again? As you can imagine I'm not feeling too kindly disposed towards Incredimail at present! This is what they told me to do I'm Verlie):
Exit IncrediMail by right clicking the IncrediMail tray icon (located near the computer clock) and select 'Exit'.
Browse to:
C:\Users\Verlie\AppData\Local\Identities\{84F4C8C3-3004-4C77-89A2-C3413A034517}\Address Book
Save the 'AddressBook.db3' file to your Desktop.
Delete the 'AddressBook' folder.
Open IncrediMail, open the 'File' menu, scroll to 'Import and Export' and select 'Import Contacts'.
Select the 'IncrediMail Address Book' and click the 'Next' button.
Click the 'Select Folder' button, select 'Desktop' and click 'OK'.
Click the 'Next' button.
Click 'Finish'.

I had to rebuild my Win 7 partition following a partition resize. I found out that I didnt have a system image or restore points so had to do a fresh install.

Do you know whether the live mail contacts woudl have ben saved anywhere other than my C drive or whether it is possible to get them from my ISP?

I recently took a domain user and moved them to a local admin account. I copied everything in the C:\Documents and Settings\user folder (just hit, select all and copy and paste) into the C:\Documents and Settings\local admin folder. now neither user's exchange account can find the address book. I didn't delete any files, in the process. The domain user stores everything locally, but has a roaming profile, and also backs up the recently changed documents the the roaming profile. I desperatley need to find the address book for the user.

I'd appreciate any help anyone could give me.
