Hi Mark need to know a little more before we can help. Do you know if your calendar information is stored on your mail server?

If not, it's going to be hard to sync your calendar. If so, we need to know what type of server. We can then provide directions to configure your iPhone to sync with the server too.

Maybe I should delete the existing Outlook calendar.  There are a lot of duplicates on the caldendar right now.  I tried to connect to the exchange server and the error comes up: Unable to verify account information.  I think I have my mail being delivered to my .pst.  Mail be also be delivered to the exchange server, but Im not sure.

Also, the mail arrives at the exchange server, but is delivered via my outlook client to my pst file during a send/receive process.

I wonder if I need to have my Outlook delivering to the Mailbox instead of the pst for the sync to the the phone to work?

Questions remain still that you have not answered. For us to better help you, if you could please respond to those.

Is your email on an Exchange Server? If so, is this same calendar also on an exchange system? If so, the process to sync your calendar would not be through the computer and iTunes, but rather through the air through a protocol known as activesync.

If you could please confirm this information-this will greatly help us help you.

Hello, Sorry my questions are not as clear as they should be.  Exchange is something I need more training on.  Yes my Outlook mail runs thru my friends exchange server, and is delivered to my .pst.  I dont know why, but now, the calendar seems to be syncing!  Confusing
jaredr80Commented:
OK. The common way that exchange is setup is through Outlook is through a protocol known as SMTP. I am just a bit confused and maybe you are able to clarify this. Are you receiving your mail through IMAP or POP? By providing this information-this will clarify a bit more of how we proceed.

Also, on your iPhone if you could check in Settings|Mail, Contacts, Calendars|Mailbox, and then see if it says Exchange above it and if the calendar is syncing through there.

POP is the protocol.  In the Mail, Contacts, Calendars menu, at the bottom it says "Default Calendar" and that's all.
jaredr80Commented:
My recommendation would be to setup as an exchange account. This would allow for seamless syncing over the air. Please let me know if you need instructions on how to do this.
