I need to setup an iPhone so that it can sync. it's calenader with a Windows XP Home computer's Outlook 2003 (from Office SBE 2003) using iTunes.

The user's Win XP Home computer with the Outlook 2003 and iTunes in which they were just syncing the iPhone Calendar with Outlook 2003 crashed and had to be rebuilt.  No Outlook or iTunes files were recoverable.

So, I am trying to learn how you take an iPhone (with calendar up to date) and then setup iTunes and Outlook 2003 on this Windows XP newly setup computer so the user can again sync. their iPhone Calender with Outlook 2003.

Thanks

If the Outlook client is connected to an exchange enviroment/sbs enviroment, why not connect the iphone via the internet to the server...

Then th user can get their emails whilst out and about...

You will need outlook anywhere to be setup on the server and firewall...

If you connect the iPhone to the computer, with iTunes installed, then you will be able to choose to sync mail and the calendar...

But how do you setup the Sync. in in iTunes to Sync to the newly created Outlook 2003 e-mail account with a blank Calendar.

When you connect the iPhone I understand it will show up in Devices and you can setup Sync of various items including Calendar.  But I am not sure how you choose to Sync to the Outlook e-mail account I mentioned.  

I also want to make sure the iPhone's Calender comes in to the blank Oulook Calendar and not have the blank Outlook calendar clear out the iPhone Calendar.

Thanks for the input.  

I followed the steps and plugged in the iPhone and right click on device and chose sync option for only Outoook as listed in instructions from Apple on how to do.

But when I click "Apply" it gives me a pop up that the iPhone is for a different user and do I want to sync..

I am not sure what I should do in this case.  To review what I posted:

1) Computer that was being used to sync. iPhone to Outlook via iTunes crashed and fresh rebuild of entiire system was done.

2) Installed iTunes and imported all music recovered from crashed system.

3) Reinstalled Outlook and setup for  sbcglobal.net user email accout that was previously being sync'd to iPhone before computer crashed.

4) Connect iPhone and try and do sync (only want Calendar sync.) to get Calendar on Iphone into Outlook 2003 on Win XP PC.  

5) Get message saying iPhone is for different users and are you sure you want to sync..  

Why am I getting this message?  

What should I check on iPhone settings and iTunes and PC Outlook settings?

I do not want to sync (just the Calendar) and end up wiping out data on iPhone.  

Note, I did do a backup of iPhone in case something goes wrong..

I was able to choose the options needed in iTunes to Sync only the Calendar to Outlook (2003) and also I checked only the songs we wanted to sync and chose this option to only sync songs selected.

The issue of iTunes warning the iTunes user on iPhone and iTunes having different iTunes library was due to rebuilding the iTunes by importing every song on Win XP computer.   Before the computer crashed only a subset of the songs were in iTunes.  

I simply chose the merge the iPhone and iTunes for this Apple ID user and it all worked fine.

Thanks
