Microsoft exchange

I have office 2019 with Bigpond email configured to IMAP, so I can only get my emails to sync on laptop and mobile. I am told to be able to sync contacts and calendar as well that I need to configure my email account to an Exchange Account.


Is that right and can I do that with a Bigpond email account?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

Re: Microsoft exchange

Hi RAM8,


IMAP and POP are protocols that are unable to sync calendar, contacts, etc. They can only sync email.


You are correct this can only be done if your email is configured as an Exchange Account. 


At this stage you can only setup up your Bigpond account as an IMAP or POP account.
