  1. Hmmm… I’m using the latest social (hotmail) connector in Outlook 2010 and I still have to a) publish my calendar to Office Online, b) subscribe to the calendar (via the online url) in my MS Live account. A sync relationship would be when changes are made twoways; e.g. if I create an entry in Live Calendar it should be synced back to Outlook.

    It’s actually easier to sync (twoways)to Google Cal, though that too isn’t smooth in 2010.

  2. I do not observe this scenario working … I have the 64-bit edition of Windows Vista Home Premium with Outlook 2010 …
    Is there, perhaps, a limitation? I.e., the Connector will NOT work with the 64-bit edition?
    If so, can this info please be stated somewhere?

  3. it’s not working, just let you view two calendar easily….still have to do some extra moves to “sync” the calendar…

  4. This is not working! Stupid Microsoft complicates what it’s very simple. Back to Android phone and I don’t want to hear about WP7 again.

  5. Does not work. MS products are just not the same as that of Google, half of the time they do not test their products.
