How to sync Outlook.com, Office365 and Exchange Online contacts and calendars with Outlook 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019?

How to sync Outlook.com, Office365, Windows Live Hotmail and Exchange Online with Outlook 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019?

Google offers Gmail and what does Microsoft have?
Microsoft Outlook.com

From MSN Hotmail to Windows Live Mail to Outlook.com to Office 365 (cloud service)

To many of you, Hotmail has been an best friend for decades since 1995. After Microsoft merged it back in 1997, it was renamed to MSN Hotmail with several attempts of merging this service under Windows infrastructure. Later in 2005, facing competitive Gmail services from Google, MSN Hotmail turned into Windows Live Hotmail and offered faster, easier and more secured services. As of 2012, Outlook.com came out and it will gradually replace Windows Live Hotmail by 2013. Starting mid of this year (2015), Microsoft will unify all former accounts including Hotmail, MSN Hotmail, Windows Live Hotmail and Outlook.com into Office 365 services, now you can still download desktop version of the Office software from your office 365 portal.
Outlook.com contacts and calendars

What is Outlook.com API, Live Connect API or Microsoft Graph API?

Many people are trying to access their old Hotmail or Outlook.com contacts and calendars within Outlook 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2016. Only Outlook 2013 and 2016 do a good job enabling users to join their Outlook.com accounts via Active Sync, a native Microsoft protocol deployed by Exchange Online service deployed by Office 365. What about Outlook 2007 and 2010?

According to research and experiment by many users on Internet community, Outlook 2007 and 2010 have issues accessing Hotmail or Outlook.com data though Microsoft says Outlook 2007 sp3 and 2010 sp2 fix the issues. Yet, Microsoft has already stopped providing mainstream support of Outlook 2007 on 10/9/2012 and will also stop providing mainstream support of Outlook 2010 on 10/13/2015.

Consequently, users are looking for a real-working replacement or alternative like the Hotmail connector or Outlook.com connector for Outlook 2007 and 2010. Luckily, third-party Hotmail connector software applications such as EVO Collaborator for Outlook come in rescue by supporting the Graph API that came after both Outlook.com API and Live Connect API. With Graph API, we are able to sync our Outlook.com contacts and calendars.

How to sync Outlook.com contacts and calendars with Outlook 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016? (also works with Office 365 and Exchange Online accounts)

Let us try EVO Collaborator for Outlook to see if synchronization works?

  1. Download EVO Collaborator for Outlook and install it
  2. Click on Configure profiles

  3. Select Profile called outlook.com – not configured

  4. Click TEST button at the bottom to proceed entering Outlook e-mail and password in popup window
  5. A list of permissions acknowledgement pops up and click on YES to grant ECO

  6. Click off the window popup to continue
  7. Click on OK in Success box and then Apply to save configuration settings

How does EVO Collaborator for Outlook make it happen?

As we mentioned previously, Hotmail.com, Windows Live, and Outlook.com services were merged into Office 365 service collectively. Using Exchange Online service along with Microsoft Graph API, third-party software developers are able to sync a complete set of fields between Office 365 and Outlook 2007/2010, which has issues synchronizing ever since.
