    Has anyone had success syncing their iPad with Outlook 2007?

    I have tried iTunes/Info and thought I could at least sync contacts, calendar and notes - but it does nothing. :(

    I have resorted to using mobile.me for the contacts and calendar functions, but it would be uber-cool to sync my notes and tasks from outlook as well.

    Is there another app that could be used? I've searched and only found separate PIM apps.

    Is there a workaround I could apply?

    I use Pocket Informant. And it is the best it syncs via google then back to apple cal and tasks. I believe you can sync windows outlook with gmail. So it will work. Go to their website for more info.

    Isn't it supposed to already be developed? :confused:

    Why have the options to select in iTunes if it doesn't work? :mad:

    Why would anyone want to? All I want is a simple sync to what contacts, calendar info, notes and tasks I already have. :eek:

    We all know MS Outlook sucks, but that's not the point. Over half the corporate structure in the US is stuck with MS Office, like it or not. I don't have the time nor the ambition to learn a new way to do the same thing I already do.

    After all, my Blackberry does it. :p

    Sync with Outlook

    I have Outlook at the office and have it synced with my iPhone and iPad. I didn't have to do anything other than put in the Outlook Web Access (OWA) address, Corporate domain, username and password. I get email, calendar and contacts.

    Like OUiPad, I have Outlook at work and have had no problems syncing via Exchange and the OWA information.

    I don't know what your are doing wrong but iPad and iPhone both sync perfect. I used to sync with Microsoft Exchange on my last job with no problem withnmy iPhone. As a matter of fact it sets up a whole lot easier than Blackberry.....

    All you do is when the iPad is plugged in, just hit the "info" tab and click the things you want synced..... Pretty simple....

    I've done just that to no avail. I did finally use MobileMe to sync contacts and calendar, but as was said before, nothing from notes will sync.

    Reading the past few replies implies it works only with MS Exchange and not the desktop MS Office version of Outlook?

    There's not a lot to do wrong. I simply selected the proper boxes and hit 'apply'.

    Nothing. :(

    Mind you, now with MobileMe applied, the contacts and calendar options are grayed out but the notes selection is still selected.

    Again, nothing. :(

    Well you can only have one 'Exchange type' account on your iPad, same as iPhone. Have you tried the OWA option that others are referring to? It works great on the iPhone.

    You might want to delete your MM account and try adding the OWA account.

    Well, that went straight over my head. LOL

    I know I don't use Exchange, and I have no idea what OWA and MM is. I just have a desktop installation of MS Office with Outlook 2007.

    ok, if no exchange server, what is the way to get sync between outlook on desktop and ipad? Most of the above is too telegraphic to be able to reproduce. Thanks for reading this..

    I have been able to sync contacts but not the calendar? I believe I have checked all the right boxes. Any ideas?

    kbuggeln, did you follow the walk through I wrote in the link above? Also, I think a better description of your problem would help. Your contacts, from what, are syncing, to what? What are you using, google calendars? Are your Google calendar items not syncing to your outlook?

    Are there any ical or webDAV calendars involved? More information would help, also walk through the instructions I posted above your reply.

    Try using Google as the Glue

    I think you should follow John's advice and see if you can use Google as the intermediary middle-man.

    The trouble with Outlook is that it doesn't play nice with much else besides Exchange Server (which you are not using - that's what everyone else in this forum means when they refer to OWA and syncing over the air).

    If it's not too painful, I would recommend that you find a way to get all of your email, contacts and calendar info into Google. Then, you can use Outlook as the front end to your Google account, if you so wish. I'm sure that someone has made the software to do this, if Google doesn't offer it themselves.

    Google has all the same functionality as Outlook (Calendar, email, contacts) and more. Plus, it's very good at syncing with other systems. Not only will you be able to sync to Outlook (I believe) but you'll be able to sync to iCal, the Apple Address book, and MobileMe (if you want).

    Then, if you want to change mail clients in the future (away from Outlook), you won't have to start over again... because everything will be in Google.

    The calendar and contacts is one thing, but what about notes and tasks from Outlook? MobileMe doesn't, does Google?

    Yeah, if you use Exchange server for your outlook mail then it works outstanding for calendar, contacts and mail syncing. All automatic and over-the-air. Yea um, Microsoft
