    Outlook configures as an Exchange server... WebOS has always synced calendar, mail, contacts, with my Pre+, Pre2, TouchPad for both my wife's and my Outlook (live.com) accounts.
    Only flaw from my pov: mail comes over in text-only format, no HTML mail displays with pictures, etc.
    My solution is to configure the exchange account only for contacts and calendar.
    I then configure a pop3 interface to the account for email.
    You can configure both the Pop3 and Exchange interfaces to your live/outlook/hotmail accounts for mail, you just get two copies of each email, one via pop3 and one (text only) via exchange. It is then easy to choose which view you want by switching mailboxes in from the mail viewer app.
    Note: my wife and I sync our hotmail accounts via the live.com webpage options. When she adds a calendar entry in her PC or Pre2 or TouchPad, it appears in all 4 of our webOS devices.
    We have been using this technique for years.
    If anyone can tell me how to have HTML mail display on the mail reader app via the exchange interface (other than the PoP3 parallel interface kluge) please tell me! ...note, many messages in text-mode on exchange include a "view in browser" link which is an alternative to the Pop3 trick, but I find this too slow.

    It may not be what you are wanting to hear but I have always used gsync (other options are also available) on the PC to sync outlook with google and then the built in synergy in WebOS to sync to google.

    Flawless, fast and I don't even have to remember to hit a sync button.

    'Course, if you don't like your stuff in the cloud you will need to look for other options but for me it is just nice to know I have a 3rd backup of all my data and one that will follow me to any other device or OS I am likely to move to.

    EDIT: Just realised you might also want your mail synced, for that I use IMAP on both outlook and WebOS -simples.

    I think he is talking about outlook.com, not Outlook running on a PC. If you can sync your PC Outlook with an outlook.com account that would probably do the trick, though. Then just sync your phone with the same account.
