Microsoft Outlook supports syncing contacts and calendars to the iPhone. The changes made to your iPhone after the syncing process occasionally require that you refresh your Outlook program before they appear. In addition to updating your contacts and calendars, you can download any email that goes to your Outlook folder directly to your iPhone if you have set up your email address accounts on the device. This way, you can access your email wherever you are.
Connect your iPhone to your computer and launch iTunes if you don't have it set to automatically open.
Click on your iPhone name in the Devices section.
Select the "Info" tab and click "Sync Address Book Contacts," "Sync Outlook Calendars" and "Sync Mail Accounts." Select other options as needed to sync additional content.
Click "Sync" to begin the process of synchronizing.
Outlook Contact and Calendars Not Syncing
Quit Outlook if the program is open. Complete this process only if the changes made to your Outlook Contacts and Calendars don't appear after you've synced your device and computer.
Reopen Outlook and click "Go," then "Folder List."
Click the "+" button next to Contacts and Calendars.
Click "Calendars" or "Contacts" again in the Navigation pane to display your contacts or calendars. You may have to complete this process more than once for your calendars and contacts to appear.
