How to only sync the Calendar part of Outlook with iPhone 5 in iCloud

We have Outlook 2010 and want to only sync the Calenders section via iCloud.  Yet we noticed that in iCloud control panel, all Mail, Calendar, Task is an option to choose (see pic below).

Can we only sync Calendar? (as it display below, we unchecked Mail, Calender, Task))

In your iphone 5 goto Settings

Under Settings find iCloud, Tap on iCloud

Under that you will notice all options for Mail, Calendar, contacts etc... are individually listed and you can turn on and off so that only certain service will syn.

So go down the list and toggle anything you want to enable to On, and anything you want to disable to off

Turning off an iCloud feature on your iPhone will remove the associated data from your device, but not from iCloud's servers. So, if you change your mind again, just repeat the process and flip the switch back on.

Hope that helps :)

Thanx for the info. just checked and we do have those settings (see ic below).  

Does this mean we just to have check "Mail, Contact, Calendars, and Task" in the iCloud in the PC?

Also, what do you mean by "Turning off an iCloud feature on your iPhone will remove the associated data from your device, but not from iCloud's servers."?

Yes, you still check Mail, Contact, Calendars, and Task" in the iCloud in the PC, but when it will talk to your iphone, it will only sync what you have told it to do above.

The other thing I mean was that suppose you disable Mail in your iphone, your all past mails still resides on the Icould on apple servers and if you wish to bring back the mail feature back then just flip the switch again on your iphone and you will be back in business for the mail.

Curiosity, by having Calendars check in my my iPhone (and obviously check also in iCloud Control Tray), means that when I create a calander in my PC and my iPad and iPhone will get sync? (no need to iTunes)?
