Playbook synch

My Playbook will not synch with the email account which has my contacts and calendar info. I keep these in outlook on one email account, that account is registered as the one for email, contacts and calender on the Playbook.

 

AARRGGHH!!

Re: Playbook synch

As far as i know the email in pb will sync with contacts and cal in the sky.com webmail. It doesnt sync with any data that is in pc outlook only. If the outlook cal and contacts is syncd with webmail it should pick it up. Similarly storage folders need to be on webmail servers not pc. 

 

When i got my pb i moved all folders etc from pc email client to hotmail servers in the web.

Re: Playbook synch

Jarviser,

 

So you are saying I need to move, email, contacts and calender from Outlook to sky. I am somewhat of a technophobe, so how do I do that!!!

Re: Playbook synch

[ Edited ]

If you do some googling you will see for example outlook cannot Sync with sky cal.  playboook should be able to but would need to be tested. Easiest way is make sure you have set up the sky account on playbook to sync cal and conracts, add one event and one contact,  give it some time to sync then go to sky webmail and see if they are there. Try one the other way.

 

Once you have established that sync works playbook to sky mail then you can decide IF youwant to sync cal and contacts via playbook or outlook. I am suggesting that using both is not an option.

 

If like me you plump for playbook then you may as well forget outlook and use sky  webmail on the pc.

 

Other opinions may be available. I have no outlook or sky mail knowledge.
