Just got the latest Microsoft update to Outlook for Mac. I have 365 account.

Before you start:

  • Make sure that your PC meets the iCloud system requirements.
  • Download iCloud for Windows.
  • Sign in to iCloud for Windows with your Apple ID. If you don't use iCloud for Windows, set up two-factor authentication and sign in to Outlook with your Apple ID user name and an app-specific password.
  • Check the System Status page to see if there are any known issues affecting iCloud Mail, Contacts, or Calendars.
  • Make sure the date and time settings on your device are correct.
  • Make copies of your iCloud data.

If you don’t have devices that can be updated to iOS 9 or OS X El Capitan, you can set up two-step verification instead.

Resolve Duplicates

  • If you’re having trouble with duplicate calendars, we can help you remove them.
  • And if you see duplicate contacts, we'll help you remove them as well.

Check your Internet connection

  1. Try to open apple.com. If you can’t connect, then your iCloud Calendars, Contacts or Reminders won’t update in Outlook. You'll need to get help with your Internet connection.
  2. Try to open a secure website from your PC. If you see an error message such as 'connection timed out,' you'll need to contact your Internet service provider for help.

Check your log-in settings

If you have multiple Apple IDs that you use with iCloud, you might be logged in to iCloud for Windows with a different account than you are on your other devices. To check, open iCloud for Windows and compare it with your other devices.

Refresh Outlook

If you recently made changes in Outlook that aren't updating on your other devices, or changes on your other devices that aren't updating in Outlook, click Refresh in Outlook.

If the installed version of Outlook is not supported

Update Outlook For Mac

If you receive an error that says the Installed version of Outlook is not supported by iCloud, uninstall the version of Office that you got from the Windows store. Then, follow these steps to install Office 365.

If the Mail option in your iCloud for Windows account is grayed out

Before you can use iCloud Mail, you need to create an @icloud.com email address. If you didn't set up an iCloud Mail account when you set up iCloud, the Mail option in your iCloud for Windows account might be grayed out.

To make the Mail option available, set up an @icloud.com email address, then close and reopen iCloud for Windows. If you still don't see the Mail option, sign out and back in to iCloud for Windows.

After you set up an @icloud.com email address, you can make the Mail option available when you close and reopen iCloud for Windows. If you still don't see the Mail option, sign out and back in to iCloud for Windows.

If you can't send or receive mail

If you can't send or receive messages with your iCloud email address, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you can send and receive email from iCloud.com and your iOS device.

  2. Deselect Mail.
  3. Click Apply.
  4. Reselect Mail.

iCloud features that work differently in Outlook

Some iCloud features in Outlook work differently than they do on your Apple device. Here are a few tips to help you use Outlook with iCloud for Windows.

Update Outlook For Mac

Mail and Notes

  • VIP Senders folders aren't available in Outlook.
  • Any mail rules that you create in Outlook aren't available in the mail applications for your other devices or on iCloud.com.
  • Signatures are saved locally to your device. You won't see signatures you create in Outlook on your other devices.

Notes isn't a separate application. Your notes are stored in a mail folder.

Update Outlook For Mac
  • You'll find Notes that you create on your other devices in this folder.
  • Notes that you post to this folder from Outlook won't appear on your other devices, but you'll see them on any other computer using Outlook and iCloud for Windows when you're signed in with the same Apple ID.
  • You can delete notes from this folder and they'll be deleted from your other devices.

Contacts

  • Outlook will only import the first contact in a vCard set.
  • If you need to add a vCard set to Outlook, import the set directly into iCloud.com or macOS Contacts. We will bundle the entire set for you and add them as individuals to your Contacts.

Calendars

  • When you add Calendar attachments to a Calendar entry in Outlook, you won't see them in Calendar for iOS or Calendar for macOS (or the other way around).

Reminders (Tasks)

Like Calendars and Contacts, you need to enter your Reminders in the iCloud section of Tasks in Outlook. If you don't enter your Tasks into the iCloud section, they won't transfer to iCloud.
