Just got a terrific link for Microsoft new Outlook for iPhone apps.  Unfortunately, when setting up, can't get my "non-MS/iCloud/Google/Yahoo" email accounts created and cannot find how to have my current iPhone/Desktop-Outlook appoints also sync to this new MS apps.

Please advice.

What happens when you try to add your non Microsoft account to the app? I was just able to add my own Gmail account first go without any issues.

When you add your Google account, a Google sign-on screen should appear where you then enter your Google Account login details. Same goes for when I add my iCloud account. I don't have an account with any of the above providers so I can't test this for you.

What problems do you experience when you try to add an account? Please also specify which provider you're having issues with (Google, Yahoo, etc.)

As for syncing the calendar items from your desktop version of Outlook, you'll need to first let us know what type of account you already have set up in your Outlook desktop version.

(Sorry about that, using iPhone post answer)

When we said "non-MS/iCloud/Google/Yahoo", we mean email accounts from a domain created in GoDaddy or other hosting/emails Providor.  For example, an email account like  Another example is when you create an email account iPhone >> Settings >> Mail, Contact, Calender >> Other.  In Outlook for iPhone, there is no "Other".

Doesn't seem that the Outlook iPhone app currently supports email accounts other than what you already see in there. The page for the app in iTunes says the same thing:
Outlook works with Microsoft Exchange, Office 365,, iCloud, Gmail, and Yahoo Mail.
You'll need to stick with the default Mail app for those email accounts for now and hope Microsoft releases an update down the track which supports regular POP/IMAP accounts.
