    the owner of the calendar must give you permission to edit the calendar. Also you should beable to add your calendar directly by adding the exchange account.

    Still working on this.

    i can publish my Outlook/Exchange calendar to the internet, then subscribe to it on Outlook.com. But for some reason, not all the events are published. If I subscribe to it in Outlook 2010, the internet calendar is an exact replica of the actual Outlook/Exchange calendar. But when I look at it on Outlook.com, there are a few events missing. Further, new events added to the Outlook/Exchange calendar don't get pushed to the Outlook.com internet calendar.(they do get pushed to the internet calendar viewed in Outlook). What am i missing?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    It says when I try to create a send and receive account under Outlook that POP needs to be enabled in Gmail. I enabled it and it is still asking me to do so.

    This is my first post here and i need some informations/help .
    I opend up new outlook.com email address , and i wanted to forward my yahoo mail to outlook.com. I set everything up in yahoo and the new mails are being forwarded to outlook.com but there is a problem. Every time i get forwarded mail in outlook.com inbox i also get this massage: "Be careful! This sender failed our fraud detection checks."
    Massage alone doesn't bother me that much but because of that massage i don't get push mail in my phone. So i don't know if i have new mail or not.
    Every time my forwarded mail gets flaged with that massage push mail is disabled and not working for that massage.
    when i send myself email from yahoo to outlook i don't get this. But when i enable forwarding in yahoo mail i get that massage and that mail is not pushed to my phone from outlook.com.
    Does anyone experienced same issues??

    ps. Sorry for my bad English

    You're currently signed in with an Office 365 email account, which can't be used with Outlook.com. Please click here to sign out of your Office 365 account, then use another Microsoft account to sign in to Outlook.com (for example, your hotmail.com, live.com, or msn.com account).
    Any ideas anyone? I never even signed up for an Office 365 account to my recollection. What the heck's going on?

    You should be solid then. If you lose your contacts, you'll have them all and you may just need to re-import them into Hotmail/Outlook once if they're not immediately there.

    Worked like a charm! Thanks, Jake!
    I realized I don't have my YouTube account anymore. Can I create a new YouTube account without making a new Google account? I had so many subscriptions and even though I unlinked my YouTube account from my Google account, it still asks for an email address, the one that I just deleted!

    No, since Google owns YouTube, one cannot have a YouTube account without having a Google account.

    Hi,

    I've been wanting to switch from my Gmail account to Outlook.com due to my recent purchase of a 920. However, is there any way of importing the filters and labels at all? Also, is it possible to make the messages that have been sorted into folders to be shown under inbox as well? I don't want to look into different folders when reading my messages, but I want to be able to find certain messages quickly when needed.

    Might never make the jump if these aren't resolved. I love the labels function on Gmail as it allows me to know what's in my inbox at a glance. :(

    Thanks!

    Your Hotmail account should automatically be upgraded when you sign in to Outlook.com... it's the same service.

    See here: My Hotmail account was upgraded to Outlook.com - Microsoft Windows Help

    From what I read, it should directly upgrade. Messenger is being deprecated but as you said you already integrated it with Skype.

    This guy had success with his Hotmail: http://forums.windowscentral.com/gen...tm#post1908875 so I'm assuming it'll work for you as well.

    If you want to be absolutely sure, I'd check out that link but upgrading to Outlook is going to retain all your current information as a Hotmail account.
