Calendar not synching with hotmail calendar

When I make an entry into my playbook, it says that it's synching but when I check my hotmail calendar, nothing has changed and visa versa.  The hotmail account is set up in my playbook but I have no idea what to do to get this thing to work.  I do not want to chance losing all of my appointments because my playbook crashes.  Help!!

Hi and welcome to the forums!



KB30163 Options for contact and calendar sync do not appear after an email account is integrated on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet


After adding an email account (GMail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc) on the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet, contacts and calendar items are not synchronized as they are on the BlackBerry® smartphone.

Unless the email on the BlackBerry smartphone already utilizes wireless synchronization of contacts and calendar, contacts and calendar will not be synchronized when an email account is setup on the BlackBerry Playbook.
