How do I sync just my Outlook Calendar when using Activesync?

I am using Outlook 2013 to synchronise with Exchange using activesync.  All works perfectly fine, however I do not wish to sync my Inbox, just my calendar.  I tried splitting my pop e-mail account (BT) and my Exchange account through Send/Receive groups - I almost got there but now in my Exchange group, even though only 'send e-mail' is selected (all be it greyed out) it now does not sync my calendar at all.  On my Samsung Galaxy, I have a tick box that allows me to only sync my calendar, not my e-mail.

I hope this makes sense and somebody has the answer.

Hi fuzzyfreak!

First I have some questions I need answered:
Do you have access to the Exchange Server?
Is it hosted Exchange or on-premise?
What is the reason you want to do this?

The whole idea of MAPI is to sync items. Help me understand so I can create a solution that makes sense.

In the meantime, this might be what you are looking for but until I understand your situation more...it's only a guess: http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/olc-hotmail/sync-calendar-contacts-using-outlook-com/

Hi, thank you very much for your response.  Somehow it is working but I shall answer your questions anyway -

Yes, I have access to Exchange Server
On Premises
The reason I wish to do this is a little odd - I use my office Calendar for personal use, so I wish to sync the calendar with my home laptop, but not the e-mails to avoid work!

Though it seems to work, I am now slowly moving all my personal calendar items over to outlook.com - so I would say this question is defunct but thank you very much for the link, I may have to come back to this sometime.
