    I have a friends who wants to sync her ipad and iphone calendars with her PC using windows live mail client on a windows 7 PC which is connected to her domain name using POP


    the mail is already set up - and I know shes using POP on the Windows Live Mail client on the pc to access her email which is using her own domain email service


    dont know whos hosting and also dont know at this stage if its allows imap


    visiting next week - so would like a few ideas and maybe links to websites, where i can be prepared and know what to lookfor to setup
    depending on if we only have POP available
    and if we change to imap
    also if we need to use other services like icloud


    Thanks in advance - I know my way around a PC OK - but not the apple products

    From my research it looks like I need to have the email provider support imap
    or , setup another email account , like gmail, to sync the calendar

    i have just set up the calendar sync

    i setup a outlook.com account and synced from the windows live mail to the outlook.com calendar and all worked well

    i do have an issue

    the ipad and iphone - calendar events created on these two items are not synced back to the outlook.com / WLM calendar

    but they do sync with each other all OK

    WLM ==> oulook.com === > ipad ==> iphone
    all work that way

    ipad ==> iphone
    iphone ==> ipad
    all work ok

    iphone/ipad created event == NOT ==> wlm/outlook.com

    if i setup an event in the WLM calendar and delete it via the ipad or iphone - it is deleted from the WLM/outlook.com calendars

    so what does not work is just that

    an event created on ipad or iphone does not sync to the WLM but they do sync with each other

    Does NOT work
    Ipad ==> outlook.com/wlm
    Iphone ==> outlook.com/wlm

    ipad and iphone are set to push

    any ideas

    i have solved the issue , and a really silly issue
    I played today at my mother-in-law who has an ipad


    and it all comes down to not selecting the correct calendar - i had not noticed birthdays was also selected
    so i changed the new account to a Exchange account setting , and also notice i need to enter the info incorrectly first to then get prompted to enter the m.hotmail.com information


    set the account up for just calendar
    Set the calendar as default


    and all works


    just means she will only have 1 calendar , if she wants to sync between all devices


    thanks for support
