How to sync the Nokia Lumia 800 with Outlook

Nokia’s recent shift toward the Windows Phone platform had many wondering if the iconic manufacturer would be able to continue its track record of success. Early reports are indicating that sales of the Lumia 800, Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone device, have been overwhelmingly positive. This is good news for Nokia fans and Windows Phone fans alike. Nokia has always had delivered excellent hardware design, and the Windows Phone platform gets backing from a major hardware manufacturer.

One of the big questions users have when they pick up the device is how to sync the Nokia Lumia 800 with Outlook. Out of the box, the Lumia can sync with Exchange, but standalone Outlook users must look for another solution. CompanionLink offers two methods to sync Outlook contacts, calendar and tasks with the Lumia 800 – syncing through Google or via Window Live Hotmail.

CompanionLink works by syncing Outlook data to a Google account or Windows Live Hotmail account. From there the Lumia can be configured to automatically sync with either account over its wireless data connection (note: Google does not sync tasks with Winodws Phone devices – CompanionLink recommends syncing via Windows Live Hotmail).

      Yes, you can sync MS Outlook with your Windows Phone device. Do you have the Lumia 800 (this was released two years ago) or some other device?

    The most abysmal phone I have ever had the misfortune to be mis-sold.
    It is definitely a step back in terms of connectivity, I can’t wait to upgrade and smash this POS to smithereens

    This phone sucks. I bought it thinking it would be great. Turned out Android was great. Windows sucks as usual.

    Please give USB synch connection to Nokia 920 a HIGH Priority! The cloud solution is really a clod….To heck with the cloud…..

    Very disappointed, had no trouble syncing my Nokia E71 & E72 with Outlook, this is a big problem for me in business, it’s got to go, shame because as a phone it is good.

    Frustrating and a totally pointless phone in my opinion!!!
    Cannot wait for the Razr Maxx to be available on UK contract instead of £400 SIM ONLY!!
    In my opinion it’s all about battery life and phone durability, the rest is pretty much no different in deciding between 1.2GHZ or SGS3 1.5GHZ and slightly better camera shots but the same 8pix.

      Right now limitations with the Windows Phone SDK prevent us from being able to provide alternative sync methods, such as USB sync. If you would like to be notified if/when that changes, leave your email in the form found here: http://www.companionlink.com/windowsphone/outlook/#email-collect-form

    I have a windows live (Hotmail Account). I also use outlook on my pc with the hotmail connector. I also have my windows live account set up to sync on my Nokia Lumia. This all works very well……except my Nokia Lumia oly syncs with the email on my Windows Lice account if my Outlook is open and running on my PC. I do not understand this, as all of my mail is primarily arriving to my Windows Live account. ???

     Pity the phone can’t sync as easily as a blackberry

  • LB_sails

    So if I have to sync this way I may as well go the samsung galaxy nexus because there is no difference to the sunc method :(

    • Anssi

      Actually, there are free and commercial tools for Android to sync with Outlook. MyPhoneExplorer and Android-Sync for example. I use the former with my Galaxy Nexus.

  • Lars

    What if we don’t want to have our Outlook data lying in Windows Live Hotmail? Why can’t we just synchronize the god old way between Outlook on the PC and the Nokia mobile phone?

      At this point, the tools aren’t in place for us to bring our USB or Local WiFi sync over to Windows Phone. We’re definitely keeping an eye out for any updates that may change this though and will keep you posted via the blog.
