Hi
I'm using a PC with Outlook 2010, and iPhone..
Trying to sync. calendars using MobileMe.
MobileMe calendar is synchronising OK with iPhone.
Problem is in Outlook 2010.  Now I downloaded MobileMe on PC, and got it going, MobileMe calendars are showing on Outlook.  The problem is that my original Outlook calendar, where all meetings sent by email are located, is separate and doesnt seem to sync with MobileMe.  Wasnt able to move the main Calendar to a new position under the MobileMe calendar folder.  Instead moved a copy of it to that location.  Then it showed up on MobileMe and the iPhone.  But that is a static copy, and soon is out of date.  So thats not the solution.
Hopefully someone can provide a plausible one.
Thanks

Hi,

I've been looking into this issue for several days, as I have a customer with the same issue.  My research has revealed that MobileMe used to sync with the built-in Outlook calendar ("Calendar" in your list) before Apple "upgraded" MobileMe.  The current version of MobileMe insists on creating additional calendars, which cannot be set as your default and will not sync with your default (and according to Apple, this will no longer be possible).

We are all stuck.  The only thing that can be done is to switch to another service, which seems to be where every forum thread ends up at.

Here are some threads I've bookmarked, showing dozens of people looking for the same solution:

I've now moved on to research what a good alternative to MobileMe might be.  If I find something, I'll be sure to let you know.

Thanks AnakiMana

I ended up synching calendar on PC with iPhone using Google calendars.

Seems to work OK.

Cheers
