Outlook for Mac doesn't support iCloud contacts or calendar syncing. See this MS KB.

However, if I remember correctly, you can set up Outlook to sync with the regular Mac contracts that are in the stock address book app. So, you'll want to set iCloud sync with that stock app first, and then have outlook pull contacts from there.

is it possible first get iclouds to sync  with windows outlook then exporting synced contacts to pst format + importing to mac outlook.

Logically it makes sense.

Thanks

Yes, but that's not really syncing -- that's just a one time transfer of the contacts. Also, Windows PST files aren't compatible with the Mac Outlook storage. Yes, you can still do it that way, but it will be simpler to just export to a CSV file instead.

And it seems that it would be a lot easier to just set up the actual iCloud sync the way I described earlier.
