WP7 – Setting Up Outlook Account Mostly Painless, Annoying “Feature”

Thursday, December 2, 2010 10:58 AM

I set up my work Outlook account on my Samsung Focus today. Overall, the process was pretty painless and its working as expected (my calendar is updated as well).

One small FYI though: don’t dilly-dally when entering the Outlook account settings. As I was trying to set it up, I got into a conversation with one of our network admins. While talking to him, the phone – which was in the Outlook account settings screen – exited out on its own and displayed my Gmail account. All the settings I had entered in were gone, and I had to re-enter them.

Now, in the grand scheme of things, not a huge deal, but seriously…a timeout on entering Outlook settings?! Weird.
