Contacts sync to Outlook on Android


I have a new android mobile phone and am trying to sync the contacts. I have successfully added the account to Outlook and it has synced the emails and the calendar items but doesn't sync the contacts to the Contacts app in android.

When adding the blueyonder account it adds it as an IMAP account. I understand from the Microsoft website that it needs to be an Exchange ActiveSync.

Does this mean my blueyonder email can't sync with android?

I'd appreciate any help anyone can offer!

Thanks in advance.

Re: Contacts sync to Outlook on Android

You should be able to sync your blueyonder emails using the IMAP protocol. The VM mail system does not support syncing of contacts or provide a calendar function.

I am a VM customer. There are no guarantees that my advice will work.
