    The last post I saw indicated it was impossible to sync the MS calendar to the iPad. Is that still true? What is a good 3rd part app that does not require Google or some other online site?

    I have been sync'ing MS Outlook calendar from day one with iPad 1 and 2 just fine, both directions. You have to set it up in iTunes. However, I can only sync on plugging in with desktop, not "over the air."

    The 'bear is correct. You can also sync with an iPod touch. What is also neat is that you can view all calendars or only selected ones.

    As a side question why can't I sync mail in Outlook?

    Waiting for my iPad and this is worrying me. Is this really, what a failure it is! No work around for this?

    You can sync over the air if you have an OWA exchange account. If your company uses Outlook exchange server, then you can sync over the air no problem. I do this for work everyday. Works with outlook calendar too!

    I am sync'ing Outlook 2007 Mail, Notes, and Calendar to my iPad-2 and iPod Touch without any problems. Yes, it is done through iTunes with the settings under the Info tab. New mail arrives directly on the iPad and IPod but new Notes and Calendar entries from the PC only happen upon sync through iTunes. I set up my mail accounts in Outlook to delete messages from the server after one day instead of the default that deletes them immediately upon download. In this way, I get all new mail on all devices, not just one.

    Aha, okay. Good, my company has a hosted Exchange so that should be no problem. Thanks for clearifying.

    You must be using some sort of POP system instead of IMAP. However my company set it up, I can control what email is on the server from any device (without having to set it to remove after 1 day) and the calendar syncs over the air.

    Cannot sync Outlook 2007 Calendar to iPad

    IPad synchs WIN7 Outlook 2007 Notes and Contacts but will NOT sync Calendar. This actually started after I removed Mobile Me which totally screwed up my Outlook Calendars and Contacts. I have gone through all of the recommended Apple troubleshooting including totally removing iTunes and reloading. I even reset the iPad in iTunes but used the saved data for recovery. Is the next step to toally blow out iPad in iTunes and build it new?

    If you used the saved data for recovery, you might have put back whatever weird setting that prevents the calendar from syncing. Have you tried removing that particular exchange account from your iPad and then re-adding it? And enable calendar sync.
