    Using Outlook 2010 and Hotmail connecter. Able to use the calendar and contacts to sync to the Lumia 1020. Some issues I've run into are:

    1. In Outlook the display shows the native calendar appointments not the Hotmail Calendar. I have to manually open the Hotmail connected calendar to see those appointments.
    2. Alarms on my WP8 are doubled up now. Do I have to delete my appointments from one calendar to avoid this?
    3. On occasion, I will be missing new contacts I add in Outlook in my WP8 device.
    4. Appointments and contacts added in Outlook will show up in Outlook.com but they won't come over on their own to my WP8 without me syncing them through settings or using a calendar app sync function.

    Any suggestions or similar experiences?

    Sync your Outlook calendar to Windows Phone

    Perhaps they will be helpful to you.

    If you have multiple accounts connected under emails + account (ie facebook, twitter, google), try removing all of them and then re-add them.
    I had this problem after doing a hard reset recently, seems like one of my social account had problem syncing and somehow affected outlook's. Perhaps WP has problem linking your outlook contact with the incomplete social / other services syncs. After re-adding all accounts the syncs went on smoothly.

    Or if you doesn't mind, try removing any security on your microsoft account.

    I'm not having sync issues. Fixed the duplicate alarms by turning off all Outlook.com calendars linked to app. I'm hoping my other issues were isolated and will not continue.

    I do not have any other email's or social media accounts activated on the phone. I think what we have is a limited system which iPhone, Android, and BB have weaknesses as well. Oh well...

    I have it set up correctly. I'm just finding some holes in the system that I hoped some expert level users would have encountered and remedied...
